  • Diligence analysis.
  • Risk mitigation.
  • TSA schedule adherence.
  • Financial value capture.
  • Much more.

  • In almost any module, select “Team Metrics” from the Views menu.
  • Clearly organized tables display calculated performance numbers.
  • Inline chart summaries break down the numbers visually.
  • Heat map options and color-coded status flags make exceptions pop.
  • View performance of an entire portfolio, or of single project.
