Work collaboration

It’s understandable that everyone has their own way of doing things and their own work personality. Some listen to music, chat with colleagues and enjoy the general buzz and hum that a working environment provides. Others are solo workers. They head into unused meeting spaces and wear noise cancelling headphones solely to block out the noise around them. Neither way is wrong. It’s when there is also a collision in styles of executing and delivering tasks that there becomes a problem.

Collaboration at work doesn’t mean that people with the same working styles must work together. In fact, Belbin’s theory states that several differing styles of worker are needed to form a constructive team. There is, however, a requirement that strong communication within that team is present to articulate responsibilities clearly, be assured of progress and provide guidance when needed.

Verto unites teams

Join forces by using a cloud-based work collaboration platform to not only house all project documents and workspaces in a configurable way to suit the work, or the team involved, but one that also connects and amalgamates team members for a collaborative effort from start to finish.

No one is left wondering whether activities have been completed, as everyone is able to view and update progress. There is no unnecessary doubling up of work, as it’s clear who’s working on what, at all times. Most importantly, as everyone is attuned to the same system, the data is accurate, provides solid benchmarking and can be reported on fast, and with ease.

Collaborative working enabled by Verto

Sharing is caring

Being part of a collaborative team means that competitive behaviour is left behind. The reluctance to share information and ideas stifles progress and increases divisions within an organisation. So Verto helps to support innovation, openness, transparency, accountability and ultimately, growth for a team.

With the carefully constructed set of tools that Verto offers, a siloed mentality is not able to become the prominent way of working so will be pushed out of existence. For example:

  • Within Verto One, notifications alert people when a piece of work is allocated to them. Many tasks can be completed within Verto if using integrations, such as Office 365 tools. And once complete, the whole team will be updated, progress can be plotted, and reports will be updated.
  • Verto One also has a robust document storage system with a few ways of accessing documents. Cards within the Kanban-style boards hold as much information and store as many documents as needed. There is also the master file storage section that holds everything inputted and created within Verto. Every change made to any of the documents is also logged using the version history feature so you’ll never lose a thing.
  • Verto chat is an instant message function that all your project team can access. Minimise email traffic and keep quick messages within the team by using the function. The companion app keeps you up to date with messages and notifications when not at your desk.
  • Dashboard functionality is always working away in the background. So, at any point if you need to see the state of play, you can access your own dashboard to understand exactly what is happening across the whole workspace. You can access information on any risks that might be looming ahead of them becoming issues using this tool, or map risks and issues separately if they need to be specifically highlighted.

What is Innovation?

Innovation is the process of driving meaningful change. It is not limited to large-scale business practices and does not simply end with money being saved. Innovation can culminate in time-saved, improvements-made, and happiness-met for anyone, anywhere.

With such a wide scope of innovative behaviours to realise within any single business, Verto has a number of tools at its disposal that helps you identify, tackle and manage the process of innovation for your company, end-to-end.

How Verto can help

At the beginning of any project or task, it’s important to understand the goal. Many of our clients have come to us with the challenges they know Verto can help them get to grips with, such as:

  • Work in an agile way
  • Implement collaboration tools for a remote workforce
  • Create a consistent approach to projects
  • Eliminate siloed working practices
  • Reduce time spent reporting
  • Improve the culture of work within the organisation
  • Streamline the flow of information

And there are many more ways that Verto can help you to streamline your innovation management processes. All forms of improvement that refine and upgrade are forms of innovation, and that is exactly how Verto can support the business.

The tools for change

Verto comes packed with a host of features that improve the ability to get the job done.

Verto One is a viewpoint that generates agile working practices throughout your project teams. The Kanban-style board helps you see actual progress through the project process as you move cards, packed full of the information you need, across the board until the work is complete. 

Maintain an organised document storage system within Verto One, and keep track of changes made to every document across any stage of the project. Chat freely to those with access without clogging up your inbox and get notified of any change, addition, approval at your desktop, or on the go, through the companion app to help maintain your level of involvement. 

Verto One supports collaborative working for those working together or remotely. Verto has other offerings should the need arise for larger programmes of work. Gateway stages are used to house organised workstreams for larger projects. They can be set to have all activities requiring completion and approval, clearly showing the work moving on to the next stage. The flow of information is clear, and the right people are identified along the way making time, culture, knowledge-sharing and information flow more efficient

This process can be used time and time again for future programmes of work, simply by renaming the gateway stages to suit the next piece of work. This consistent approach helps bring people together providing a common way of working, making people accountable and engaged in their slice of the action.

Engagement in a person’s work is only brought about when there are clear lines of communication, the free-flowing share of information and ideas, and the understanding and a common working together towards a clear goal. Verto’s system facilitates these identifiers, reducing individual ways of working that may not align with the rest of the project team’s way of doing things. 

Siloed working practices are ironed out and solo operational workers are brought into the fray, providing the whole team with clarity. Using one system means that the data inputted will be compatible across the organisation.

Benchmarking can then be used to gauge areas of improvements and goals being achieved faster and more efficiently for all stakeholders. Reporting will be understood across multiple departments and generated quickly as the information is already captured within the system.

Starting small

Business innovation doesn’t need to be a mammoth task. Small changes can add up to a significant shift in the happiness index within your organisation. Process management is one step to tackling multiple reasons for moving towards an innovative workforce, and Verto provides the tools to get you there.

What else can Verto do?

Verto has fully configurable workflow so that workspaces and projects can move through defined stages and approvals. The workflows can be set up in multiple ways by different teams and departments across the organisation according to project size and complexity. They can be customised to incorporate approvals and a complete audit trail.

  • Verto boasts powerful reporting at multiple levels
  • Export in different formats including Word, Excel, PDF, CSV, TIFF etc
  • All reports are run in real-time, so only the latest information is presented
  • Use ‘tags and filters’ to ‘slice and dice’ the data as much as required
  • And use our data extracts for tools such as PowerBI, Tableau and QlikView

Verto records quantitative and qualitative benefits which are then tracked and reported against at multiple levels, via the dashboard and comprehensive reports.

Financial management allows users to track cost profiles over time, providing full transparency on project spend. Financial integrations with systems such as SAP, Oracle, Pegasus, Agresso,

  • Manage and track scheduled and planned resources including heatmap views
  • See where each resource is planned and current utilisation percentages
  • Actively monitor resource allocation and capacity for any given day
  • Assign rate cards to resource roles and specific time periods
  • Full Timesheet management and approvals down to task level

  • Link project outputs to performance outcomes and KPIs across the organisation
  • Create performance groups and objectives to ease the management of multiple KPIs
  • Compare performance against other departments, services and organisations and track progress
  • Produce custom reports, plans and graphs tailored to suit each organisation’s needs

Emergency Response Planning

Emergency Response Planning - Prepare for the worst with Verto

Emergency response planning is a necessary evil for public-facing organisations to ensure the communities they operate for are in safe hands. But overcoming potential risks and keeping everything on track doesn’t have to be a laborious chore.

Creating your toolkit

No one could have foreseen 2020’s pandemic, forcing organisations across multiple sectors to violently swerve from their carefully thought-out success strategy to one of pure survival. But that is what happened.

Now, with hindsight, we can show you how to use Verto to develop an emergency response planning toolkit to apply again and again to any future risk planning exercise that may affect you or the community you are serving.

A rapid response toolkit will benefit you in many ways:

  • A readymade template can help to reduce time spent on organising your response from the get- go leaving more time to action tasks immediately.
  • Having a template in place leaves more room for continuously improving the methodology every time you use it, instead of building it from scratch and coming across the same stumbling blocks each time.
  • A faster response aids community relations and, depending on the severity and scale of the emergency, may reduce safety risks, financial risks or health risks within your community.

How Verto can help

At the beginning of any project or task, it’s important to understand the goal. Many of our clients have come to us with the challenges they know Verto can help them get to grips with, such as:

  • Work in an agile way
  • Implement collaboration tools for a remote workforce
  • Create a consistent approach to projects
  • Eliminate siloed working practices
  • Reduce time spent reporting
  • Improve the culture of work within the organisation
  • Streamline the flow of information

And there are many more ways that Verto can help you to streamline your innovation management processes. All forms of improvement that refine and upgrade are forms of innovation, and that is exactly how Verto can support the business.

What are we planning for?

While CV-19 was a once in a lifetime incident that we all hope won’t happen again, there are some risks that are more foreseeable depending on where you are based.

  • Climate change: This is affecting everyone and everything. Planning for reversing the negative effects caused by climate change in every area of the country can be mapped out, and actioned by residents and businesses by creating community strategies to make sustainable living easier for the average person.
  • Flood response: Low land areas that are at risk of flooding can use Verto to support community links by connecting organisations like those able to help with food, shelter, maintenance and health to speed up recovery and aid the safety of all residents affected.

  • Pandemic response: Many workers found themselves in new roles during 2020 as business sought to create response teams to rally round and survive the hit. Grouping workstreams so focus remained despite the chaos happening helped many companies gain sight of how not to fail earlier than others.
  • Occupational incident: Sometimes unfortunate and unforeseeable events happen where the response needs to be immediate and mitigation methods to prevent further destruction must be developed fast.

The Verto toolkit

Coordination tools

Easily group like-minded organisations required to help on the particular response. Verto One is one option to house all the relevant information, including data points such as contact details, types of experience, levels of interest for relevant council coordinators and local health organisations. Or local businesses who can act as suppliers, and community members with relevant expertise. Verto allows you to create an oversight group to manage the coordination of all workstreams.

Organise programmes of work for these groups using the gateway stages to easily manage and progress through projects with your team. Include the level of detail that works for you for you. Everything is kept in one place so all members can access the documents and data whenever they need to and from wherever they may be.

Activation tools

Creating community hubs, managed from the Verto platform (like unused building space, coffee shops for meeting venues, sports teams and schools) is a way some Verto users have employed the available activation tools to manage crisis situations. The hubs generate community involvement and create more ways to activate a response to a crisis. Many also find a purpose to get involved and feel more a part of their local area.

These tools can collate member details and discussion topics while also helping to manage back end details such as venue costs, availability and scheduling. They are designed to keep you progressing through your task list, achieving your milestones to keep you accountable, while the percentage indicator shows your exact progress. Benefits are tracked on an ongoing basis so realising them can be achieved earlier and keep up to date with any issues and risks as they happen so there’s no need to fall behind.

Reporting tools

Having a good sense of how a project is progressing is vital when responding to emergency situations. Quickly and easily generate snapshots of how successful your plan is. 

Pull reports on anything at any stage. Report on resourcing to show who’s allocated to what, the time they have spent on their tasks and whether there is space for them to take on more. Understand what issues and risks might be looming from being able to access reporting tools early on. 

Risks can appear at any time when dealing with unstable situations. Actions and decisions can also be reported on. Pull logs to stay on top of every moving part within the whole operation.

Auditing tools

Verto provides a complete and comprehensive audit trail to reassure management, and justify to creditors and auditors when assessing the outcomes. 

Log actions to track the full journey to completion. Look back on tasks to provide rationale for spend in certain areas. See all parts of a decision-making process in one place. Careful reviewing of a programme following completion provides the opportunity to look for areas of improvement for implementation within the next emergency response plan.

A team using the Verto system to the benefit of their project management

Are you a project manager, team manager, business lead or CEO?

If so, the concept of agile project management or agile working will have likely come your way. If you are looking to streamline the way your projects are managed, or hoping to achieve your desired outcome in the most effective way, you’ve come to the right place.

Agile project management is a way of working that involves a more flexible approach to project-based tasks. By decreasing the scale of a task, testing and then receiving feedback quickly, teams can pivot earlier for larger engagements before too much has been done. 

Bringing the team together to work on individual tasks breaks down a larger, more daunting engagement, making everyone accountable and motivated to do their part. Within an agile environment, benefits can often be realised along the way, rather than waiting for them to be identified at the end of a project. 

With the whole team empowered, adaptable and working quickly and flexibly, you’ll find yourself with a more engaged and happier workforce. 

Empower your teams with the tools they need

Working with agility enables businesses to cover more ground more quickly when working towards a goal, business outcome, or benefit for the organisation. This can be done in different ways, each coming with its own set of terminologies such as: 

  • Backlog – A list of prioritised deliverables or features to be implemented within your product or service 
  • Kanban – Tools to enable full transparency of work done in real-time and open communication across the whole team 
  • Kanban board – A visual page of progress and development of work. Lists contain cards, holding all the relevant information on them. When the work moves to the next stage or is completed, the cards progress through the board to show the exact stage of the project in real-time

Remote Working Collaboration

  • Lean – A way of working to promote a team’s focus on a project by working quickly, eliminating unnecessary tasks and using continuous improvement to maintain productivity in future tasks 
  • MVP – Minimum Viable Product. Creating the bare minimum product/service first, to test whether there are any issues, roadblocks or unforeseeable items before spending time, money and resource on the final product.  
  • Scrum – The framework needed for a sprint to take place. The scrum provides the team with the space to test the product and hold regular meetings to discuss progress 
  • Sprints – The timeframe in which a short piece of work (or development phase of a project) is completed, usually 1 week to 1 month in length. This is designed to break down a large project into bite-sized chunks 
  • Velocity – The measure of work done within a single sprint. The scrum uses this measurement to improve the framework for the next sprint as a method of continuous improvement 

Customise Verto to the way you work

Agile project managers, while handing a lot of autonomy over to the team, need to be well-informed and hands-on to ensure their sprint is a success. Verto boards offer a completely agile and configurable way of monitoring any activity, meeting or project. Flexibility is key, so the easily moveable cards on the Kanban-style board can include a range of entries to provide a team with the most comprehensive view of their workspace. 

Verto’s dashboard functionality and visually impressive reporting tools can easily track and report at multiple levels in real-time. Capturing all data within one, cloud-based system enables benchmarking to be established early on, and reporting becomes one single version of the truth to be presented at any stage of your project. 

The VertoGo mobile companion app will keep you on track when not at your desktop. Site visits or meeting external stakeholders won’t slow down the approval process, and you will still receive notifications when aspects of your project change or need attention. 

Verto Gantt chart managing a project

Complete document management is available to help organise everything needed into one place, providing access rights to the correct people through permissions set via the desktop or app. If multiple versions of contracts are going back and forth during a time of negotiation, complete version control is there to access any amendments made throughout the whole process. 

Create intuitively configurable timelines to display the project milestones in a visually impressive format, using Gantt functionality to map and track the moving parts of a project.  Deadlines are movable and so if delays do occur, the off-set dates function will push whole timelines back at the click of a button. 

Streamline your agile project management processes with Verto, and access it all from one easy-to-use, cloud based interface.

Verto’s Kanban-style boards are a visual masterpiece, allowing you to see everything you need at any point. Hide sections that aren’t applicable and click into cards to see more of what is. Verto can give you a complete understanding of the stages you are assigned to and need to keep on top of. Notifications will help to keep you on track, so you or your teams won’t miss a deadline.

Documentation Management

Document Management

Document sharing is a pain point for many companies when it comes to collaboration. From locked documents causing delays to multiple versions piling up, not to mention those who like to save files to their desktop… Verto’s servers are secure and able to integrate with the full Microsoft suite, allowing you to easily hold the most up-to-date version of the information you require at the click of a button. Further integration with Slack means you can also share from there and version control means you have a copy of every single change made to every single document, no ifs or buts.  

Chat and Instant Messaging

Remote working is a reality for many nowadays, but whether you like this new working life or not, there are bound to be difficulties to overcome. While agile working behaviours are certainly becoming trendier – not to mention a necessity for the health and wellbeing of your organisation – remote team management can be a challenge. Verto puts many of these issues to bed with a range of tools. Instant message and chat functionality can be a blessing when your team is spread far and wide, helping you check in and get quick answers ASAP. Through tackling productivity issues when not in the office, Verto chat helps your teams stay on top of their work, wherever they are.

Capacity planning

Keep track of events, tasks and activities for the team and individuals with the calendar view. The whole team can use the calendar to handle their own task management as plans shift. While individual calendars can be amended, Verto provides one core project calendar for everyone to see, a gamechanger for the organisation of tasks and management of the team.

Teamwork makes the dream work

Whether your work has an impact on others within your organisation or not, the dependency mapping tool within Verto will help you identify this. More often than not, the completion of a task or milestone will have a knock-on effect to another, whether within your project or within another area of the business. When you can identify these connections and work together to mitigate any risk to the outcomes, goals are more likely to be achieved in a far more efficient way.

Verto helps you overcome common reporting barriers

Too often, best practice is not maintained when the project reporting system you have put your trust in, behaves poorly. At Verto we understand the common complaints some systems bring to businesses, and have designed a reporting tool configurable to your specific needs. Report in the way that works best for your organisation.

Collate data from multiple sources

Collating data from various sources is essential to providing an accurate picture of project or business performance. Consider the sources involved: financial data, membership or sales data from marketing teams and operational data from staff. The information isn’t necessarily cohesive. The systems used and the people in each department don’t always talk to each other, so the hours spent on bringing it all in-line often involves transposing into excel with insights drawn out from there. Thankfully, there is a better way. 

With Verto’s project reporting, data can be pulled into one handy, customisable dashboard to present a real-time snapshot to your team or stakeholder group. As soon as data is received from any department, it can be logged in the format you need it. You can also use the dashboard data to run a detailed report, cutting the data to show just what’s needed for each group. 

Ensure your comparisons work

It’s frustrating when you expect your reporting time to half when the reality is, it takes more time than you have available. Verto’s dashboard is simple to arrange, setup and manage so you can focus on the project in hand, rather than collecting your data.  

Sometimes, only certain information is required when presenting to different stakeholder groups. Verto’s dashboards will help you hide, highlight, splice, and dice the data within the dashboard to show what matters most. If you need to change the way you are reporting, or the information your dashboard is receiving is suddenly redundant, simply amend to bring your project reporting back on course. 

Seamless and easy integrations

Integrating with other systems is complex, especially if you are a large organisation or have several departments. Verto has been built to withstand complexities and can be configured and customised as your organisation requires. It is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ style of platform, instead being one system, responsible for every aspect of your project or programme. Existing whole systems can be manipulated to integrate and work seamlessly through VertoGrid for you to remain working in the way you are accustomed to.

Keeping on top of every last clause 

Successful businesses operate to do big business with others, and that includes contracts. Management of contracts can be a demanding aspect of those business transactions. 

Imagine the steps taken just to get to the contract stage: 

  • Identification of a need  
  • Research into relevant offerings 
  • Price comparison 
  • Research into specific products or services needed 
  • Pitch processes 
  • Negotiation stage 

But once you have the contract ready, it also needs maintenance: 

  • Are the deliverables being supported? 
  • When does the contract run out, will you renew? 
  • Relationship management with supplier 

Luckily, Verto has several tools that can help you with your contract management strategy from the very start of your project, to the very end


Handling all aspects of the contract and procurement procedure 

Procurement departments deal with much more than just the contract management of goods, products and services coming in and out of the business. Spend strategy across all organisational sectors must add up to make sense for organisations bottom line.  

Capita Procurement Solutions needed a simple way to hold and manage a wide range of documents needed for large client engagements. Quick and easy access to documents was a necessity, and the new storage system needed to be uncomplicated for it to be maintained as they needed to quickly identify whether a project was going right, or wrong. With Verto’s Document Management tools, they found a solution to fit their needs.

Verto consolidates information from many different sources into understandable insights that keep everyone in track. Here’s how:

Project network view allows you to visualise the entire project network and explore its spider web

The dependency network mapping tool helps you understand interdependencies between projects and contracts. Teams can share risk by understanding the knock-on effect of an issue and act early to minimise the impact on the wider business.

RIsk and issue mitigation

Contract risk management and early identification of risks and issues can be displayed visually using the RAG method for a proactive response to lessen negative impact. It is visually impactful to spot a roadblock early so you spend less time on problems and more time on solutions.

Track the benefits that make a difference

Too many big businesses struggle to keep projects on course when multiple plates are spinning. Input from various teams and stakeholders can be hard to manage for even the most experienced project managers. 

Many private sector organisations are looking for new routes to gain success, especially during times of uncertainty that affect customer confidence. Creating more money for the organisation to spend is known as a cashable benefit, and can be quick to realise.  

When it comes to public sector organisations, success is often for the benefit of the public. This places huge pressure on project managers to ensure project goals are always achieved. Sometimes benefits aren’t immediate, but develop over time. Non-cashable benefits are harder to track in this way, but are still vital to understand.  

Financial savings are seen as cashable benefits by all types of organisation, be it non-profit, public or private sector. This allows it to be identified immediately.

Benefits realisation for the targets that matter

Businesses are learning that in order to better quantify their success, and highlight where time, efforts and resources should be invested, project benefits need to be tracked. Verto gives you the tools you need to identify, manage and forecast your benefits.

 As an all-in-one solution to tracking project benefits, Verto knows how to bring all the moving parts of your project together, and help you stay on track. No matter the sector your organisation belongs to, Verto provides you with modern benefits realisation functionality. 

Benefits can be quantifiable (measurable and easy to forecast), observable benefits (easy to forecast but will take an assessor to determine the outcome) or measurable (easy to measure but not easy to forecast). Verto helps track them all.

Correlate the benefits from project outcomes with performance outcomes and KPI’s all from one easy-to-use interface, all maintained within one cloud-based system.

Best laid plans are made with Verto

Use Verto for managing your benefits realisation, and map any project or workstream against a certain set of desirable outcomes. Keep accountable with a range of tools designed to get your project to the end goal in as simple and effective ways as possible.  

Verto’s dashboard functionality and visually impressive reporting tools can easily track and report at multiple levels. Capturing all data within one system enables benchmarking to be established early on, and goals can remain constant. Cloud-based reporting in real time provides you with one single version of the truth to be presented at any stage of your project. 

Verto allows you to see the dependency of one activity, workstream or project on another, thanks to the dependency mapping tools called ‘VertoSense’. So when your organisational goals are at stake, you can map out the risk of one project with a milestone of another to identify where there might be overlap, risk or a timing issue to re-plan.

Consolidate and streamline project & resource management

Document permissions set incorrectly, overwritten versions or using different systems create issues that could affect the outcome of your project. While the dashboard provides you with the latest snapshot to report at any stage, Verto’s document management system will allow you to look back on each amendment made to any document, at any time. 

Retrieving past versions is made easy, so you can always track the development of the work you are doing. Permissions are set and maintained throughout any system integration or set up, and Verto’s upload function means you can work on whatever system you feel comfortable with. This can be done live, with amendments being made in real time.  

Using Verto’s suite of tools can help users to identify if benefits are being realised along the way, whether observable or measurable. By picking up on any issues that occur as you work through the benefits realisation and management process, Verto can help the team react quickly to a situation before it turns into a risk. 

A solution-based project management software like Verto is a valuable piece of the puzzle when trying to implement benefits-driven change.
