Introducing Verto – The benefits of a complete project management system.

Introducing Verto

Project management can be about as much fun as going to visit the dentist. You’ve got a budget to worry about, a tight schedule to meet, a team to motivate and stakeholders to keep happy. Somehow, you must keep everyone informed, and make sure that they all are receiving the same information. It can be overwhelming!

Well, we sympathise with you. We established our company in 2008, and our first project was to evaluate a large business transformation programme that had been ongoing for 18 months. We found that the PMO was overwhelmed with emails, spreadsheets and many documents, resulting in poor communication between the programme delivery team and the stakeholders.

We realised that we needed to develop a cloud-based collaborative approach to get the project under control, and as a result, Verto was born.

Verto is our innovative cloud-based solution for programme and project management that uses one platform to bring the delivery and stakeholder community together.

It’s easy to use the platform, it gives you instant communication with your colleagues and provides updates in real time while managing your programmes and projects securely in the cloud. Verto provides the catalyst you need to implement improvements in efficiency and collaboration throughout your organisation. By using Verto, our clients have reduced emails by 40%, Project Management Office (PMO) costs by more than 25% and savings in project resources by around 30%.

Verto provides two views to link your delivery community with your stakeholders. Vertopro allows stakeholders and the PMO to collaborate across the entire program. Vertogo delivers an individualised mobile-friendly view for project team members.

Vertopro is an organisational view of all projects and programmes in one place. It allows anyone who manages projects, budgets, timescales and generates reports to view information in real-time, including:

  • Milestone and task management (Gantt charts)
  • Risks, issues, costs & benefit management
  • Resource and timesheet management
  • Document storage and sharing
  • Chat and instant messaging
  • Alerts, actions and calendar management
  • One-click reporting
  • Performance planning

Geared entirely to the individual user, Vertogo gives a focused view of the jobs immediately at hand allowing you to prioritise what needs to be done. You can update your colleagues, team members, project managers in real time.

Verto will also send notifications and alerts directly to your phone, making sure everyone is kept updated and connected without the need for long email chains.

To solve the problems for organisations collaborating within a partnership (like STPs and ICS regions), we provide a version of the platform called Vertogrid. This enables collaboration across member organisations, whilst giving each organisation their own bespoke application.

Using Verto makes collaboration more straightforward and more efficient, helping you eliminate a lot of the potential pain points in bringing your project or programme to a successful conclusion. Try our 60-day Free Trial and see how Verto can support your organisation.
