WorkOtter: Project Portfolio Management Software for the rest of us

When done right, project portfolio management software can transform your business into a disruptive force. However, the wrong PPM software can create gridlock and slow innovation and growth. WorkOtter is the best PPM software for companies who want a simpler, more sensible, and more secure way to end project chaos, cut through gridlock, and empower their people to grow.

Project Portfolio Management Software

What Makes WorkOtter the Best PPM Software for Your Company?

Here are the top reasons our customers tell us why they chose WorkOtter PPM Software.

  • Easy Project Workflow

    WorkOtter lets you quickly setup your project workflow and the rules by which projects move between phases, including:

    • Pre-project Service Requests
    • Templates
    • Process Map Interactive
    • See Your Map by Customer or Corporate Strategy

    Managing and reporting on projects by phases allows for what-if analysis, planning, and templates. Start every project a little closer to completion with WorkOtter project portfolio management software.

  • Dashboards That Inform And Impress

    What is everyone working on? When can we start our new project? How do our efforts relate to our strategies? Are we getting faster delivering critical projects to the business? These are the questions everyone has. How effectively you answer them and how actionable the data is will determine your success. WorkOtter PPM software has 9 built in dashboards (and the ability to create your own stunning HTML5 versions) that:

    • Show 15 different chart types (with drill down)
    • Distribute reports to non-paid users (saving you $)
    • Export to Word, Excel, CSV, XML, OpenOffice, or PDF
    • Access to the entire database in our reports universe
    • Manage who can see, edit, filter, and build for complete security

    WorkOtter dashboards and reports will save you time preparing and distributing reports that will give you the wisdom you need to succeed.

  • Multi Project Program Management

    One size does NOT fit all – and your project portfolio management software system needs to adapt to different hierarchies. That’s why we first developed WorkOtter as a true Program Management system in 1998 and continue our leadership today. Programs allow you to rollup and manage larger strategic or capital projects as one. When you combine projects into a program you can:

    • See rolled up consolidated dashboard reports that interact with your every click
    • Create program level issues, changes, risks, and action items along side your project level
    • Prioritize and status report at the program level
    • Share projects between multiple programs
  • Optimize Resources

    The #1 constraint in your company is the availability of resources with the roles (and proficiency) to execute your vision. WorkOtter PPM software allows you to quickly and easily see:

    • Supply vs. Demand of Resources (with “What If”)
    • Utilization metrics over time (where is our time going?)
    • Forecasting with drill down to see planned time
    • Show “true” supply by setting up a simple role profile per person
    • Allow “demand” to come from as simple as a % of a person’s time or as complete as a Microsoft Project full integration

Every WorkOtter Account Includes (No Extra Charge)

  • Private Cloud Services

    WorkOtter is hosted in a top tier, all steel frame, secure building. It is one of the largest facilities in the central United States. We designed our own cloud once we realized that public commercial clouds were slower, less secure, and more susceptible to performance issues.

  • Secured Data

    WorkOtter utilizes banking grade, non open source SSL encryption and is SOC2 (formerly SSAE -16 and SAS70) and U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Certified. We use only Oracle database services for further security, performance and up-time.

  • 24/7 Support

    As good as WorkOtter is, our personal support is better. You may not think that is very important if you are researching vendors, but we (and our customers) assure you – your implementation depends as much on the software features as the company that stands behind it.
