The capabilities are:
Enables long term strategic planning in line with company goals to maintain alignment between market requirements, product plans and technology developments. Cross functional teams share dynamic roadmaps to spot gaps and opportunities and can react by making faster and better informed decisions.
Allows Portfolio Managers to continually evaluate the status of their projects and programmes and optimise which to concentrate on to maximise profitability in line with company goals. Different scenarios can be modelled and compared before making decisions to kill projects or change priorities and resource allocations.
Improves the efficiency of cross functional teams to speed up and support any new product methods and processes such as StageGate, Lean Six Sigma, phase-gate, and many others. All users are provided with a dashboard showing the exact status of their projects and helps them to deliver the correct information for the next gate meeting.
Mount campaigns to encourage new ideas to support the goals in the roadmaps to ensure the selection of the highest value products to enter the product development lifecycle. All idea submitters are continually updated with the status of their idea, how it is being voted on and when a decision will be made – this encourages them to propose more ideas in the future.
Dashboards is a (BI) Business Intelligence system that runs across all or any of the Accolade functions to create dynamic and customisable graphical reports at any point in time.
