Use of KPI Fire to track Continuous Improvement Projects

Reviewed 3 months ago

Excellent - better than expected. Ease of use was very important.

Pros

Our company finally has a place to store and track all our Continuous Improvement Projects (Six Sigma, Lean, Kaizen etc) in one place.

Cons

The aesthetics and look to present projects could be better. We still as a company use power point to present our projects to staff.

End to end performance/project/strategy management in KPI Fire

Reviewed 2 years ago

The people behind this product seem to be business performance management practitioners by the structure/function of the product and the language they use across the application and their blog writings. Why this is important to me is it reveals they are driving the product design from the practice methodology perspective mat a much deeper level than competitive offerings without making you feel you need a PhD to use it. This is not easy to find in products in this category which are very 'immature' in their structure/functionality revealing the developers are not likely to be trained or have a deep understanding of performance/project/strategy management frameworks.

Pros

KPI Fire has all the modules necessary in an end-to-end solution which are lacking in many alternative offerings. Projects are detailed and measurable. They roll up to the parent goals/objectives that drive their mission. This along with the collaboration of cross functional teams is a critical success factor for most organizations. Behind the scenes in 'Settings' you can set up workflows to match...

Cons

Graphic user interface seems a bit 'basic' the way many developers like it . . . pure and simple. This in contrast to alternative offerings which spend more on 'look and feel' but come up short on function.

Execute strategies, align company objectives and goals with KPI Fire

Reviewed 8 months ago

Project charter and workflow diagrams are easily created through templates that can be customized, based on project specific tasks, start/end dates, current status, issues and priority levels. It has helped us understand and predict future performance of team with respect to load and utilization as well. Status reports are easy to generate, helping us in making better business decisions.

Pros

As a small sized enterprise it is most important that we know where to push for continuous improvement, and KPI Fire has helped us deal with that. Through an option to manage the strategic plan of the company and overall improvement for employees and processes, I say that it is a great tool for live tracking the success of your business decisions. The best aspect of KPI Fire is undoubtedly the dashboard feature wherein visual graphics can update managers on key modules that are on track or need attention.

Cons

Still using key features of the software for operations. Beside the hefty price tag I don't think we have had much to complain about.

Vendor response

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Where was this product when I started my career. Sure wish it would have been around then! Love it!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Give them a try... what have you got to loose.

Pros

No better way to organize all of you company's strategies, metrics, projects, ideas in one place. This along with the collaboration of cross functional teams or locations is amazing.

Cons

Would like to see a burn down chart capability and more options for support of scrum teams. Also a library of customer offered workflows would be great.

Reps and his team.

Reviewed 2 years ago

decreasing rework, problem-solving, putting in place best practices across the company

Pros

KPI Fire has helped us energize our Continuous Improvement program. We launched the KPI Fire mobile app with our production team and immediately received dozens of improvement ideas. The software is easy to use. Reps and his team have been extremely helpful in training our team and answering our questions. Now we have one system where we can track all of our Kaizen events, savings, etc... I would recommend the software to other Lean or Operational Excellence focused companies.

Cons

At first, it was a little overwhelming. Reps did not allow any of my team to feel this way. He made himself available for weekly calls and online meetings to address any of our concerns.

KPI Fire is the only software I have seen that effectively links execution through continuous improvement projects with objectives (KPI's) to make sure that your company is working on "the next best project"

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

KPI Fire is easy to use. The flow of the data is simple from idea generation to project execution to the projects effects on KPI's.

I experience Bugs and Glitches that you will find in any database. Fortunately the support reacts quickly.

Operational Excellence to the core

Reviewed 4 years ago

It is a great software for managing operational excellence culture

Pros

This is one of the only software products that I have seen that combines the strategic plan and metrics WITH the projects

Cons

It takes a little bit of getting used to but once I figured out the relationship between the Goals, the Metrics, and the projects it was pretty intuitive.

Great Solution for Strategy Execution

Reviewed 6 years ago

Disclosure: I started as a customer and loved this solution so much I became an affiliate. KPI Fire was exactly the solution I'd looked for to define strategy in terms of goals that aligned upstairs to the C-Suite - but that could be drilled down into Projects, updated by globally distributed teams, and instantly roll up progress results in clean report views. Add Metrics that show the impact of Goals and Projects and it's a powerful and absolutely necessary tool.

Love this Product

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have trouble being a project manager - but I always seem to end up as one. I struggle to keep up with things using excel, e-mail, hall way chats, etc. This finally lets me get organized and make others update the list themselves. It keeps us all on pace and reporting back to the boss on how we are doing to getting to the finish line is easy stuff!! Not to mention being able to tie back to key metric indicators with intuitive graphs is extremely helpful.

Customer service is excellent

Reviewed 6 years ago

Pros: Customer Service Metric Dashboard Pre-loaded steps to follow (DMAIC, PDCA, 5S, etc.) Price Cons: Takes time to get comfortable with layout and features As a Continuous Improvement Manager, I find it refreshing to have one location for all my project management needs. Prior to KPI Fire, I was using spreadsheets and server locations to manually track and manage projects. KPI Fire has made it easier to manage projects and is much more efficient than spreadsheets and server locations.

Great Product

Reviewed 6 years ago

I really like the way this software brings together goal setting, project management, and dash-boarding functionality into one simple to use platform. If you're looking for something with all of the bells and whistles in any of these areas, you'll have to buy three separate products. But if you want something functional that brings all three together, KPI firm is excellent. The emphasis is on usability and basic features to allow for ease of implementation. Overall, great product!

Great way to connect strategy to actual work

Reviewed 6 years ago

In many organizations there is a gap between the high level strategic goals of an organization and how the work gets completed to accomplish these goals. Without that visibility, tracking and completing the right projects gets complicated. KPI Fire solves the issue of connecting these two elements together to provide a single source of truth on projects. I recommend this tool if you have multiple projects that need to be completed on time, on budget, and clearly communicated.

KPI Fire solves the biggest problem of Strategy Execution

Reviewed 6 years ago

Strategy execution is difficult because although the CEO's vision may be clear, managing and reporting the execution of people's roles & parts of that strategy is an administrative nightmare. In fact, the more organizational complexity, the more difficult the challenge. Enter KPI Fire, and it's simple, visual tool to connect performance with strategy, and the key metrics, workstreams and projects that are all part of the execution.

Must have for growing companies

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The interface is complete and allows you to drill down to get more in depth information. There are a number of ways to enter data and track your KPI's. The software offers a daily email that gives you progress on your tasks and projects.

Cons

You get out of it what you put into it. Not a failure of the software but you do need to either get the training or take the time to figure out how to do it right. It is a commitment but the results will be worth it.
