What is Sciforma?

Sciforma is an adaptable and easy to use enterprise PPM software that can help project managers administer all aspects of project, resource, risk, and change management. Its configured software solutions, offered as on-site, hosted or SaaS, can be tailored to fit a company’s PPM environment and ensure that processes and methodologies are being followed.

Overview of Sciforma Benefits

You will get a complete set of tools for scheduling projects and managing portfolios along with the unlimited data reporting and output capabilities that are offered. Consolidated dashboards provide a detailed or summarized status of projects, portfolios and resources.

You can enjoy the ability to create unlimited user defined fields to adapt built-in structures to your environment. The configuration possibilities go far beyond creating fields within a built-in category; in fact users are able to create their own categories to describe any object they would like to manage such as business cases, resources and project definitions, etc.

Configurable tailored user interfaces can be created for each step of the project management process. User roles determine what workspaces are available to who and when. Within the same Sciforma system it is possible to manage different business practices and rules, users will not get lost as they will have the right user interface, data and help for the business action they are performing.

Data entry screens such as spreadsheets and forms can be fully configured. Sciforma administrators are provided with easy to use graphical tools to design their own screens. The utilization of forms includes Projects, Tasks, Resources, Documents, Issues, Portfolios and Objectives with full design capabilities including embedded reports.

You can get help when and where it is needed. This contextual help is based on tooltip controls available throughout the system as well as HTML based help for more detailed information about a given topic. Both the tooltips and HTML content are configurable for most areas of Sciforma, giving customers the opportunity to define help according to their own practices.

It’s possible to create event driven conditional alerts and notifications to keep users up to date. Email capabilities include projects, timesheets, calendars, cost items, documents and issues. Emails can contain rich text content, project data and can be sent to groups and individuals. When receiving a Sciforma email alert, users can click on a dynamic URL that will lead them directly to the related screen within Sciforma that requires attention.

Any raised issue that needs to be resolved can be linked to a project or task. A due date and a person responsible list ensure that the issue is followed up and resolved. Users can easily consult the issues related to a project via reports.

Fast to implement: Sciforma is highly flexible and can meet any project and portfolio management requirements. For example, small to medium companies can use Sciforma’s out-of-the-box implementation and be up and running in no time. Larger companies can easily configure Sciforma to fit even their most complex needs. If a company chooses the out-of-the-box option they know they can grow with Sciforma.

All-in-one software: Sciforma is an end-to-end solution, covering all aspects of project management including strategic, functional and execution features. Sciforma also supports all the different project management methodologies including Agile, Waterfall, Critical Chain and Phase Gate.

What Problems Will Sciforma Solve?

Portfolio Management and Reports: Transparency and visibility. Managers often have difficulties to see the big picture of what’s happening in their organization. Should they hire more people? Which projects should be the priority? How can they make their work more efficient and get a better ROI? With Sciforma, they are only a few clicks away from reports and portfolio features that would answer all these questions.

Resources Management: Do I have enough resource to start off new projects? What are the best timing and scheduling of my projects? Where are my resources working and are they overallocated? How should I level my resources allocations? These are questions that Sciforma can answer quickly.

Project Management Processes: What is my priority? How can I make sure my project is a success? What are the actuals of my project and how far are they from what I originally planned? Using its powerful project management features like the Gantt Chart and other scheduling methods, Sciforma allows project managers to see the big picture, follow their own processes and not miss a step. Alerts and other features linked to the different steps keep the users informed of the current and upcoming details of the project.

It's essential to note that hardly any software in the Enterprise Project Management Software category is going to be an ideal solution that can match all the goals of various business types, sizes and industries. It may be a good idea to read a few Sciforma reviews first as specific software can perform well just in a really small set of applications or be created with a really specific industry in mind. Others may operate with an intention of being simple and intuitive and therefore lack complex features needed by more experienced users. You can also come across solutions that cater to a broad group of users and offer a powerful feature base, however that in most cases comes at a more expensive cost of such a software. Make sure you're aware of your requirements so that you get a software that offers specifically the elements you look for.

I manage a team of 30 developers using Agile to manage our projects.
We used to work with another big name PPM vendor but we were disappointed; the Agile module wasn’t very effective, the interface was not very “friendly” and it wasn’t as easy to use as we were told.

We met the Sciforma team last year at a tradeshow. To be honest we never heard about this vendor before and I’m not sure why.
After a free trial we implemented Sciforma and we have been really impressed so far; great interface, very intuitive, and the Sciforma team to configure the tool to meet our requirements was amazing.
