Meets Requirements

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

No two businesses are alike. So, why would you choose a PPM solution that isn’t a good fit for your company?

Many of the solutions on the market started out as simple project management systems with project portfolio management capabilities added on later. Yes, these solutions can meet some PMO requirements, but they don’t always have the breadth and depth needed to meet your organization’s specific needs 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

There are several variables to consider while looking for the right PPM solution. Data security and pricing will often be at the top of the list. But knowledge on the other hand is frequently disregarded.

You probably already use Salesforce at your organization.

You’ve most likely invested in your employees as well, ensuring that they have the appropriate training to execute the duties of a Salesforce administrator. If you want to use a solution that isn’t built on the Salesforce platform, you’ll need to train even more members of your team on how to use a third-party onboarding tool. If you use a Salesforce-native PPM solution like Cloud Coach, much of that training is already done. If you can use Salesforce, you can use Cloud Coach!

Cloud Coach also allows you to templatize and automate your repeatable processes meaning you’ll be able to follow your organization’s best practices, while also saving time during project creation and set up. 

What really sets Cloud Coach apart from the competitors here is our thoughtfully designed user experience – with easy on the eye reports and dashboards allowing users to take their Salesforce knowledge and intuitively take their organization’s PPM to the next level.

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.

4. G2 users say it’s easier to do business with Cloud Coach

*SAP stats unavailable

Buying software shouldn’t be difficult. If you decide to use a Salesforce-native app for your PPM, you can skip the lengthy security check stage completely: they were already completed when your organization introduced Salesforce. 

But things aren’t always straightforward and sometimes obstacles appear where they shouldn’t, from unanswered emails through to pushy salespeople, or even messy handoffs, there’s the always the potential for things to be more difficult than they need to be. 

As our G2 customer reviews show, we pride ourselves on being transparent with our customers. From finding the right solution for them, through to ongoing support, we go on the journey with our customers all the way – and that’s reflected in our near perfect score on G2!

Product Direction

6. Cloud Coach’s product direction best for PPM

When evaluating your organization’s PPM requirements, you’re undertaking a delicate balancing act.

You might find a solution that can support your needs in the short term, but does the product roadmap match your requirements for two or three years’ time? Getting it wrong could mean investing in an expensive and obsolete solution, causing your organization to fall behind competitors with access to more cutting-edge technology.

At Cloud Coach, we listen to our customers to ensure our products reflect their wants and needs, and we can truly add value to their organization. 

Our product roadmap reflects the constant dialogue we have with our customers. If there’s a new feature we’re working on? You can be sure our customers will have been involved.
