Challenge

Organizations often don’t have their data — roadmaps, project tasks, portfolio information — well-organized and stored in one place. Sometimes, there may be 100+ versions of documents that are stored in different places: emails, messages, Microsoft Office, Excel files, PowerPoint slides, and other sources. As a result, it can be very difficult and time-consuming to access the necessary data, allocate resources of different company departments, and collaborate on a project as a result. For this reason, many businesses suffer from inefficient project portfolio management.

Solution

The first step was to find a ready-made Gantt diagram base model that would meet our needs in order to save the customer both time and costs. Our team researched the market and found that each of the existing solutions had many cool features missed (e.g., no regulation of block dimensions to fit the text). This encouraged us to build our own vision. The second thing was to choose an open-source administrator panel. Since Angular is a popular framework that enables us to write clean stable code, our web developers decided to use a free Angular admin panel template called ngx-admin. This tool provided all the necessary UI elements. Thanks to it, we managed to significantly cut the project cost.

Results

The customer received a centralized software system for portfolio project management that it can sell to other businesses. Portfoleon enables companies to facilitate and improve processes like work planning, project coordination, team cooperation, and resource management. It is based on a unique Gantt model and provides a real-time portfolio visualization. What’s important, this project management web application can be seamlessly integrated with the company’s software including ERP, CRM, accounting, and task management systems. Our Angular developers made a high focus on scalability so that the customer would be able to easily add new features and make changes to the platform.
