We were looking to implement a tool that was tightly integrated with the Microsoft ecosystem that we could automate and extract information between systems. Excellent integration capabilities combined with a business who is interested in improving the product is an outstanding outcome for us.

We wanted to establish a good project delivery model and guide project managers to get even better at managing projects day to day. Our PMO has the saying  – Simplicity & Transparency – BrightWork365 gave us the tools to do that. Having the whole portfolio in the same tool and integrated to the PowerApps world gives us great possibilities to manage and report the whole portfolio of very different projects.

“The difficulty for us when selecting a project management tool was our need to store sensitive documents. The fact that Brightwork M365 is hosted within our GCC High tenant ensures that our data remains secure and compliant, giving us peace of mind while managing our projects.

Furthermore, the tool’s ability to adapt to our specific needs through customization using Power Apps has been a game-changer. We have been able to tailor the app and tables to match our unique requirements, making it truly our own.”

“With BrightWork 365 we have an integrated Project Request and Portfolio Management System which increases visibility within the business of project status, issues and progress. The out of the box templates were easily configured by our BrightWork Consultant to meet our specific needs, and the ability to create our own Content Templates ensures a consistent approach to project planning and deliverable requirements on project creation.

The ‘live’ project Dashboards allow the user to visualise the shape and health of the Portfolio, drilling down into detail if required, and with individual Status Reports the Project Leads can share progress with those outside the project team. “
