The Human Asset Management (HAM) is an integrated vPMO component that helps in identifying the right resource for each project role. The HAM includes an inventory of available resources, planned non-working time, resource analysis & forecasting, and time & effort tracking. It enables skills usage to be optimized and ensures that all mission-critical resources are productively aligned with high-priority projects.

There are efficiencies to be gained in your organization, and we are here to help you realize them.

vPMO Common Features

  • Social Collaboration - Share critical information and create a socially enabled enterprise with vPMO's social feed. Think of it as a private collaboration space for your enterprise.
  • Revision Management - Allows the user to see all previous versions of all project data including author, modification date/time, attachments, and all other artifact data. 
  • Full Text Indexing - All data stored in the vPMO is full text indexed. Looking for information or a specific document, but don't remember where you saw it? No problem, just do a search!
  • Inline Feedback - The vPMO allows users to give "In-Line" feedback, for virtually any information, allowing for a real-time collaboration regarding project specifics.
  • ID Nesting - For artifacts that have a reference ID, the IDs can be stored in a hierarchical format. This can be useful in situations where there is a series of related artifacts.

System Integration

File Storage

While vPMO has its own integrated, revision managed, full text indexed file management system, there will be times when you organization wants to use a third party file storage system. Don't worry, we have you covered. vPMO can be configured to work seamlessly with both Google Docs and Dropbox.

  • Dropbox - Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily.
  • Google Drive - Google Drive is Google's file sharing service. It enables you to easily access all your files on any device.

Data Publishing and Consumption

Data can be imported and/or extracted from vPMO using the following data interchange methods:

  • Integrated Project Reporting - Integrated project reports are paramount to understanding how your PMO is performing.  Our reports get you the data you need.
  • XML API - vPMO has a robust XML based API for exchanging data with external systems. This API can be utilized to import or export data from vPMO.
  • MS-Excel - For quick, ad hoc analysis, vPMO can export data directly to MS-Excel.
  • MS-Word - vPMO can produce exports in MS-Office format for publishing to external parties.
  • MS-Project - vPMO has a bi-directional MS-Project synchronization capability.
