Sciforma Features In Depth

Portfolio Budgeting Controls

Unforeseen costs can cause budgets to skyrocket. Sciforma has developed features to give users more insights into how their budgets are being affected by cost overruns, change orders, and missed deadlines.

When you use Sciforma’s portfolio budgeting controls, you can oversee your organization’s budgets and costs by comparing planned costs to actual costs. You can also identify and manage changes in real-time.

Tracking Time

One of the ways that Sciforma enables organizations to stay updated on the progress of large tasks is by having team members input their efforts directly into the platform’s time tracking system.

Sciforma’s timesheets are designed to display all assigned tasks across multiple projects. Team members can enter the actual hours they’ve worked for each assignment, along with estimates of how many hours they have remaining before their tasks are complete.

IT Governance

IT governance is a framework that guides the structures and business processes that an organization uses. When used successfully, IT governance ensures that an organization’s IT is supporting and enabling its stated strategies and objectives.

Within Sciforma, you can formalize and enforce internal processes, manage knowledge management, and maximize the return on investment (ROI) for your business. Regulatory compliance features are also available within the area of IT governance.

Professional Services Administration

Professional services administration (PSA) providers traditionally include accountants, appraisers, banks, brokerage firms, engineers, law firms, physicians, and retailers, among many other organizations. Sciforma offers PSA tools that these users can rely on to make informed decisions by matching the skills and availability of team members to a projects’ unique needs and goals.

By using Sciforma’s professional services administration features, you can reduce the time and effort it takes to manually enter expenses and send invoices. You can also forecast invoicing schedules and build custom reports on staff utilization, profitability and revenue.

New Product Development

Use this to bring a new product or service to market, a process which typically involves coordination across many departments. New product development usually includes the processes of idea generation, market research, marketing analysis, product design and detail engineering. With Sciforma, you can create workflows that integrate with your "Phase Gate" or "Phase Review" frameworks, manage relevant prioritization criteria, and estimate feasibility. The Sciforma NPD Dashboard allows you to juggle both strategical and operational projects, combine views and really just be able to balance different ongoing projects.

Beautifully laid out, very intuitive, leverages the best of the tech it's built on.

2018-05-09

Our clients have great visibility on the work we are doing for them, we can easily anticipate risks and be able to manage them in a way that set's very clear and resolute expectations, from an Agile development point of view our team collaborates in a way much much better than before while at the same time giving a clear picture to the client side PMs who typically manage their projects in a waterfall fashion.

Pros

With the release of Sciforma 7.1 we've seen massive leaps forward on a solution that was already at a peak compared to it's rivals, the introduction of Programme Management amongst, and the focus on building stronger connections with various data elements has seen Sciforma being highly appraised by our clients.

Cons

There are very little to no cons, everyone ultimately has their preference and Sciforma is ours. We are fully confident in the continuity that Sciforma constantly reassures us with by staying ahead of the race and breaking new grounds in this space.

Recommendations to others considering Sciforma

Be sure to clearly identify your needs beforehand for both the short and long term use. For example, our short-term needs were to track projects and resource management, but we knew we wanted to add new time tracking processes at a later date. We needed a tool that would adapt to our changing needs and had more features we could utilize further down the road.
