TORONTO, Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Changepoint, a leading provider of professional services automation (PSA) and project portfolio management (PPM) solutions, today announced the results of a technology implementation with leading United Kingdom health insurance provider VitalityHealth to enhance project support for the organization. SaaS-based Daptiv PPM, was selected over competitive alternatives for its ability to centrally manage the status of projects and provide greater visibility into activities, metrics tracking and low cost of ownership, while being extremely adaptable to VitalityHealth's needs.
VitalityHealth caters to the large and growing market for private medical insurance in the UK, which demands a mature and efficient means for managing projects. In 2012, the company set out to identify a best of breed PPM solution that could be implemented without adding excessive time and cost. Since deploying Daptiv PPM, VitalityHealth has reduced project costs and duration largely due to the efficiencies and streamlining that its project management office (PMO) has been able to implement through the tool.
Mohamed Salah, PMO Analyst at VitalityHealth said, "In my mind Daptiv PPM has improved stakeholder traction by realizing project benefits efficiently. Cost control has clearly improved and the business intelligence now available through better reporting helps us make faster, better and more informed decisions that ultimately enable us to deliver a better experience to our customers."
With the visibility provided by Daptiv PPM, VitalityHealth has the power to more effectively collaborate and tie IT projects to larger strategic initiatives by providing insight into the hours dedicated to specific projects and the cost of those hours. As a result, there is more transparency in terms of workload and prioritization, and team members can more effectively communicate where they stand on various projects and what competing tasks they may have on their plates.
"VitalityHealth is a great example of how Daptiv PPM can help a large organization with distributed field offices effectively prioritize resources and better collaborate at the PMO, project sponsor and executive levels," said Jim Shulkin, VP of Marketing at Changepoint. "Daptiv PPM has the flexibility and configurability to give organizations like VitalityHealth the ability to get started quickly and then evolve their PPM practice at the right pace for their specific business needs and PPM maturity level."
