TrustRadius Last! A Project & Portfolio Tool with a difference!Bubble Innovator was initally developed and configured for use mainly within our R&D group 3 years ago. Very soon it became obvious that there were huge benefits to the whole organisation. By making our New Product Development pipeline visible to the whole organization it promotes cross functional alignemnt and focus on the NPD priorities. Innovator is now used across all business group/functions globally, and is seen as the single 'source of truth' for key NPD information. It has replaced a miriad of other unconnected tools and ad hoc reports. We use the Innovator Project Dashboard to manage the 'business' data for NPD projects, it also drives our Project Reviews and Reports, Stage Gate Reviews, Portfolio Metrics which are automatically rolled up by platform, business group etc. The project prioritzation and resource management functionality provides true cross functional visibility on resourcing capabilities and constraints. Innovator provided us with one system to manage all our 'non technical' NPD project data including project status and risk reports, project financials to Stage Gate & Portfolio Analysis. Having one place to capture all the data has created huge efficiencies for project teams, project managers, portfolio directors and senior management, eliminating multiple other reporting mechanisms, share point sites etc.etc..,Innovator is easily configured around your exisiting processes and requires little or no training so you are up and running very quickly Innovator focusses on the practical challenges that almost all companies face in managing Portfolios of New Product Development projects - a one stop shop for all project & portfolio data, real time reporting, scenario modelling to support portfolio decision making. Users are attracted by the ease of use and visual format of the tool. Our internal IT group love it -it's provided by the Bubble Group as Software as a Service (hosted by Amazon), this means vitually no internal IT support is required,User configurable screen views and reporting capability are in development - this will significantly help key users User configurable Portfolio Views and charting,10,Increased efficiency at several levels - Proejct Teams/Project Managers/Portfolio Decsision Makers Driven consistency of process and reporting across a complex global organization Greater visibility of NPD pipeline has led to improved cross functional alignment on priorites Improved portfolio decision making capability,GenSight,Clarity,Enrich,10INNOVATOR is Bubble-iciousBubble Innovator rolled out 3 months ago across our entire organization. It presently is addressing 2 major gaps for us. As a Project Management tool, it is enabling consistent reporting from our project managers, focusing on upward communication around project status, risk, timeline, and resource levels. As a Portfolio Management tool, management is able to look across the entire business to make prioritization decisions, with the project profile data to make those tradeoff decisions now at their fingertips.,The version of the tool presented to us on day 1 required some configuration to match our product development process. Bubble was very willing to partner with us, dig into the details of our procedures, and work towards a successful solution. Bubble Engineers and Programmers have clearly spent countless hours working on the interface. The usability of this software is among the most intuitive I have worked with in a business environment. Support from both Customer Service and Acct Managers has been great. Questions and reasonable requests are always handled in a timely manner.,Limited metric reports available at this time. Screen printing and general report printing interfaces could use some improvement. Very little customization is available to different stakeholders for reports important to their department. The small text size and grey text color can be very difficult to read in meetings where projectors/large TVs are used. While it looks stylistically fantastic at my desk, it can be very challenging to view during presentations or peer reviews with stakeholders. Reference documents are often provided which defeats the purpose of having a web based tool to view live.,9,Significant reduction in time from each Project Manager to produce documentation to communicate project status. Increased trust and confidence in the data that is being presented.,10Bubble Innovator - The Strategic Tool that will change how your business is run!I believe Bubble Innovator is an extremely valuable tool for our entire organization especially for management. This tool provides the ability to see the full consolidated portfolio as well as the specific details of each project. This tool also allows the organization to rank the strategic importance of each project and makes it very easy to generate graphs for presentations. Each cross functional team member can also contribute and document their own progress in each project as well.,This tool provides the ability to see the full consolidated portfolio as well as the specific details of each project.
