EPM Live Implementation – Not for profit

Core Consulting Group (CCG) was engaged by a medium sized Christian charity.  It was focused on children living in poverty, working across 26 developing countries.  It has a geographically diverse workforce and needed to centralise project data in order to better analyse inflight and proposed projects.  Having chosen EPM Live as their Enterprise Project Management tool, CCG was engaged to assist and guide their EPM Live implementation.

EPM Live is a SharePoint based Enterprise Project Management system which is popular due to it’s simplicity and familiar SharePoint user interface.  As an EPM Live implementation partner we used the “QuickStart Build-to-Order Approach” for this implementation.  This provided our client their required outcomes over a rapid 3-4 week period, while providing a high quality end product.  Through a proven approach, our client’s requirements were accurately determined and EPM Live configured accordingly in a collaborative manner.

Our client now has a consistent, central “single source of truth” for project information and reporting available from any of the client’s sites.

Key elements of the solution included:

  • EPM Live configuration
  • Customised Project Status Reporting
  • Some consulting such as agreeing KPIs and Risk Management standards
  • Training and implementation support
