Enterprise-wide Project Management With Flex.PPM
Leave Nothing to Chance
Flex.PPM is a comprehensive solution for Portfolio, Project and Resource management based on SAP PPM. All functions of the SAP standard are available for use. For special cases there are existing optimisations that have been proven successful by other customers and complement the standard feature set. All optimisations are naturally stage implementable and future-proof.
In addition to the technical aspects, Flex.PPM provides proven tools and methods for the implementation of a portfolio management system.
Each company has their own established standards, methods and tools in order to handle the increasing number of projects. By using project tools such as Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Project, project drives and / or email folders, you can very quickly reach the limits of their capabilities with too many projects or with the complexity of projects. To optimise project controlling, now might be the right time to implement SAP for example, PSP elements and internal orders – For a consolidated view of all projects can be difficult to achieve.
With Flex.PPM, all these problems will be solved - all project-related information is available in a single system that is accessible by all persons involved. Everyone has information presented to them in a way that benefits their role in the project and the company. Flex.PPM is a browser-based application, thus it is easy to use and can run on any computer.

The introduction of an integrated solution in the field of Portfolio and Project Management can lead to big changes within a company. And it is not only the technical solutions of the implementation, migration and integration, which make up the project's success. To a large extent, "Change Management" is also needed. It’s not only that many employees from different areas will start using a new system, but often also new work processes, and an entirely different approach to teamwork may also be required.
In our many successful implementations, we have gained valuable experience in these areas and have included them in our implementation methodology - because only a system that employees understand, use and appreciate is a well-established system.
