Example of Portfolio Management Dashboards (Fully Configurable)Example of Project Management Dashboards (Fully Configurable)Real-time metrics and automated project reporting saves users an average of one day per week. Editable dashboard tiles display project status indicators, tabulated data, and summary overviews, as well as metric ratios, KPIs, and calculated metrics. The easy-to-use reporting module makes it possible to quickly share summaries for any number of selected projects and automation tools can facilitate the generation of reports that need to be shared at fixed intervals. And because the very latest information is always available, senior management can obtain a presentation-ready report at any time (without adding to the workload of your team)Projects rarely exist in complete isolation. Our program and project management tools allow portfolio managers to manage many processes or projects in tandem. Track delivery according to priorities, dependencies, or other drivers. The ability to create and link parent and child projects provides an oversight of all project activity while, at the same time, focusing on higher-level program goals. Line extensions, annual updates, or other Projects can be duplicated in whole or in part and required elements are copied across, saving valuable time and effort. Process measurement tools allow you to spot, analyze, and continuously refine process blockers and bottlenecks.The software is designed to reflect the way your organization already works. Any number of project management processes can be added to the system and automated, meaning it's easy to accommodate all of your projects and all of your project types (e.g. New Product Development (NPD), Innovation, Reserach, IT, Project Management Office (PMO) projects).Get organization wide, department, team, or person views, of resource allocation and total capacity. Assign time to projects by hours, days, percentage, etc. View assigned and required resources together or separately. Bring up assignment summaries to see precisely who’s working on what, where the pressure points are, when there’s a risk of becoming overloaded. See where resource gaps could be filled by assigning underutilized capacity from elsewhere. Support long-term business planning with automatic charts that graphically flag where your total available resources are overtaken by the number of projects required.

  • Bubble PPM has has a very positive impact on the productivity and ROI for our product development work.
  • Bubble PPM has given us an unprecedented transparency to the future value of our products in development, as well as the progress of those products. The system overcomes what can be a 'black box' of progress that is hard to see in some product development environments. This has been very valuable to our teams that are doing the product development work, as well as the other workstreams that need updates on the work in progress.

  • Definitely increased employee efficiency compared with the labor intensive methods we previously employed for stage gate and Portfolio planning.
  • I believe amongst other software options Bubble Innovator is a very cost effective solution.
  • I believe it is having a positive impact in project rigor (forcing teams to navigate the stage gate process leading to higher quality outcomes though this is hard to quantify. I also think Bubble Innovator is really helping our senior management to make better decisions faster through its presentation of data that is quickly and easily comprehended and compared.

  • Improves the efficiency of your organization because everyone knows that the single source of truth for your programs is located in one place.
  • Drives consistency within the organization, especially a large one. Everyone speaking a common language is paramount to efficiency and understanding.

  • As noted previously, streamlined and efficient reporting means more time working productively and less time converting all your updates into the slide format-of-the-year/quarter/month.
  • Also mentioned previously, the transparency is an immediate benefit. Not just visibility to which projects have the greatest risk or value, but also which ones are at risk of missing milestones so you can proactively address them, and which ones simply don't have sufficient data entered/available to inform good decision making.
  • The stage gate management tools, which Bubble Innovation worked very closely with us to develop, have driven improved rigor, consistency, and constructive challenge into our project management. If there are highly critical strategic elements that need to be incorporated into all projects across the business (e.g., heightened awareness of profitability impact), then you can efficiently push that into every stage gate conversation across every platform by integrating that element into your stage gate requirements, without having any impact on design control or more stringently controlled procedures.

  • Bubble Innovator helped us drive new product on time deliveries to 80% on-time product launches.
  • Our corporate target was new product making up 20% of our annual revenues. Bubble Innovator helped us manage our resources to plan and exceed that goal.
  • Bubble innovator allowed us to redeploy a full time team member that was managing spreadsheets of information for monthly updates. It also saved our project managers significant amounts of time that they could dedicate back to their projects.
