Meets Requirements

1. G2 users rank Cloud Coach higher for meeting your PPM requirements

No two organizations are the same. So, why would you choose a PPM solution that isn’t right for your business?

Many of the solutions on the market began as simple project management systems that were eventually expanded to include project portfolio management capabilities. Yes, these solutions can meet some of your PMO requirements, but they’re likely to lack the breadth and depth required to meet your organization’s specific demands throughout the project lifecycle.

With Cloud Coach’s full suite of Project Portfolio Management tools, you can analyze and collectively manage current or proposed projects based on numerous key characteristics. Capture demand from your business, organize into portfolios, perform cost vs. benefit analysis, manage approvals, and track project execution to give you a full 360° view of your business like never before.

I love the integration capabilities, Dashboards, Stage-Gate process, Workflow processes, and the fact it is customizable to our business, not just out-of-the-box software. This PPM tool is the best I have seen on the market.

Ease of Use

2. Cloud Coach is easier to use than other PPM solutions

When looking at the right solutions for your organization, there are lots of factors to consider; like data security and costs, for example. Something that is often overlooked though, is knowledge.

Salesforce likely already used at your company. And you’ve probably invested in your personnel too, ensuring they have the necessary training to perform the duties of a Salesforce admin. If you decide to use an off-Salesforce platform solution, you’ll need to upskill even more members of your team on a third-party onboarding platform. By using a PPM solution native to Salesforce like Cloud Coach, most of your training is already done. If you can use Salesforce, you can use Cloud Coach!

Cloud Coach also lets you templatize and automate your recurring procedures, so you can stick to your company’s best practises while saving time during project creation and setup.

What sets Cloud Coach unique from the competition is our intelligently designed user experience, which includes easy-to-read reports and dashboards that allow users to intuitively use their Salesforce knowledge and take their organization’s PPM to the next level, in no time at all.

It has everything you need for complex project management, supports most (if not all) of the project methodologies and it’s user interface makes using it a pleasure. Because it’s built on the Salesforce Platform you don’t need to worry about integration issues and you can easily adjust it to your needs.

Purchasing software should be simple. By using a Salesforce-native app for your PPM, you can even avoid the lengthy security assessment stage entirely – as this will it was previously have been completed when your company first implemented Salesforce.

You’re performing a delicate balancing act while evaluating your organization’s PPM requirements.
