• We are in spreadsheet hell

    Time for Change


    Our "project management" is an MS Excel spreadsheet an intern built.  It constantly crashes, is difficult to update, and is hopelessly outdated.  There's no security, reports, or backups.

    Isn’t this how everyone tracks projects?


      
    Time for Change
  • Innovation has left the building

    Time to Upgrade


    Our project management system is too complex to use, too inflexible to adapt, and too expensive to pitch.  We’re so mired in gridlock we only enter time.

    Every PPM costs a fortune and works the same - right?


      
    Time to Upgrade
  • We have no idea what anyone is doing

    Time for Share


    We have project status, documents, and reports everywhere – except where (and when) we need it. Plans, issues, and decisions are spread across our network.

    Doesn't everyone struggle to collaborate and coordinate?


      
    Time for Share
  • We just agreed to a project destined to fail

    Time to Set Goals


    Our resources are spread thin, we don't understand our priorities, and have trouble defining our value. Management cut our budget (and is set to do it again).

    No system tracks value, financials, and team constraints?


      
    Time to Set Goals
  • Meetings & emails are killing us

    Time to Focus


    We’re either in endless project meetings or sorting through a flood of emails.  Suppliers, teams and customers are never on the same page so we kill ourselves and still fall short.

    No solution keeps everyone on task and informed?


      
    Time to Focus

What We Say

  • VPMi was founded by Big-5 management consultants in 1998.  Prior to VPMi, we were engaged by companies of all sizes to improve their project, resource, and portfolio management capabilities.

    Our engagements began with process improvement and ended with selecting leading project management software tools that would support the new processes.

    While researching the top project management tools we were shocked at what we found in the marketplace.

    The top project management tools were too complex, expensive, and cumbersome for teams trying to collaborate, manage portfolios, and get their hands around resource availability.

    Furthermore, ERP-like project portfolio management "solutions" required expensive servers, months of configuration, and hundreds of thousands of dollars before you could enter your first project.

    Vendors competed by piling in every conceivable feature until the software could do "everything". Inadvertently, by doing so they rendered their solutions unusable by already overworked teams.

    Predictably, these tools were destined to fail. After a year the software was, at best, used for time and rudimentary project tracking.

    Sadly, for many customers of current resource and project management software tools - little has changed.

    We left the security of our consulting careers because we believed there was a simpler, more sensible, and more supportable way to manage work, but to get there you have to start with a simple question.

    What allows one company to perform better than another?

    The difference in performance between any two companies is directly related to how well one manages their projects, quantifies business value, diverts resources to their better opportunities, and continuously improves their processes.
     
    This is why we are confident in VPMi as an alternative to the "Mega Corporation" PPM vendors you have been looking at.

    For more than 16 years, VPMi project, resource, and portfolio management software we has successfully competed in the Gartner Project Portfolio Management market with a fraction of the budget and resources of our fellow "Mega" competitors. When pressed, they will admit they don't even use their own PPM solutions consistently.

    VPMi simplifies the start-up process for small companies, yet supports the evolving needs of the Fortune 500.  This allows companies to leverage project management software today, and graduate to more mature project portfolio management capabilities tomorrow.

    In the end our competitive advantage is your "secret weapon" against your competitors too.
