Centralise Project Information

The first step in QIC’s PPM deployment roadmap

The QIC package is built on the market leading CA PPM SaaS platform. Centralisation of project related data into a central system of record is the most crucial step to PPM success. Centralisation unlocks the fundamental capabilities of a PPM solution.

Time Management

Business Intelligence

  • Identify all projects throughout the organization and their progress levels

  • Track which projects are experiencing issues and the impact to schedules

  • Provide visibility into project status through reports and dashboards

  • Unlock capabilities outside of simple project inventories.

Adaptive Task Management

One overlooked task can set a project back by days or weeks, increasing costs, delaying delivery and negatively impacting parallel projects.

Tasks are important, but managing them—keeping track of which have been assigned, which have been completed, who has accepted them and the status of each can be tedious. Users need clear, easy-to-use task management tools that support team engagement via more modern, social ways of working.

CA PPM includes a task board that draws on popular consumer app-style graphics. A card can be created for each task and used to illustrate status. As status changes, task cards reflect that. Each card includes a to-do list that shows what activities must be completed to accomplish the task.

Team members can discuss the status of the work at the task level through a text box that allows for collaboration within the tool.

Managers with major projects that require the power of a scheduler also have the option to visualize task dependencies and schedules on popular desktop scheduling tools such as Open Workbench, Gantt and Microsoft Project®.

Manage Risks, Issues and Changes

Tighter Team Collaboration

Connect people together

Create a visual task list in minutes on the task board.

For each project, set your own process flow, assign staff to tasks and prioritize work. Keep all team members in synch and share your plans with other groups and executives.

Drill into a specific project, resource or task and ask questions, provide answers or in other ways collaborate. Eliminate emails and meetings by augmenting posts with attachments.
