In Gartner’s latest research for the Magic Quadrant and the PPM Marketscope, Gartner mentioned that today’s PPM platforms must accommodate integrations with other platforms such as NPD (New Product Development), Service Management and ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) in order to have a competitive advantage. EPM Live is the only PPM platform that not only integrates with these systems but offers all these solutions in one offering.
EPM Live is designed to manage all work in the truest sense. Organizations can now manage their projects, their products and their services as well as all other work in one platform without the need for integration. Because all of this work is managed differently, EPM Live has solution apps that allow each department/team the right tools they need to manage any type of work.
EPM Live is the only PPM application that offers its own app store concept within the solution to ensure the users always have what they need to scale their system. Our free apps range from full solutions (NPD, AEC, IT Planning and Control) to process definitions (PMBOK, Agile, Prince2), to 3rd party partner apps all the way to individual work plug ins such as expense reports, invoices, help desk tickets, etc.
An iphone is a powerful device; however, it is much more powerful due to the endless apps that extend its base functionality. The same goes for EPM Live, the PPM features we offer are award winning and rank among the best with our competition, but our apps in addition to our base is one of our biggest differentiators.
PPM systems are typically not simple and many times resistance follows due to forced processes, change and fear of the unfamiliar. EPM Live’s SharePoint base already contributes to less resistance and faster user adoption; however, we offer users many support formats to ensure users have what they need to continue to increase productivity with EPM Live.
EPM Live has the following support tools offered to every user:
Live chat, user forums, access to knowledge base (KB), online training, EPM Live University, how to videos, FAQs, technical blogs, phone support and email support.
Many PPM systems specialize in either online or on-premise solutions. EPM Live offers all deployment methods to support the requirements of all of our customers. EPM Live offers online, hosted and on-premise options as well as a dedicated environment offering.
Large enterprise accounts will often run their POC online to get up and running fast and prove value quickly and then move it in-house later. Deployment option will never be a limitation.
EPM Live specializes in allowing only the functionality required to meet each user’s need and maturity level. Marketing can leverage the simple scheduling tools to run marketing campaigns while product teams may use more mature agile tools to plan their iterations and releases and IT PMOs may need full blown scheduling engines to build out their plans. Regardless of the maturity, the tools are offered in EPM Live. In addition some teams may simply assign tasks to resources while other teams may need to forecast the resources, match skillsets, perform resource modeling scenarios and then assign a resource that meets the requirements. Each EPM Live capability has various usage scenarios to ensure every user is only using the functionality needed to match their maturity/skillset.
