PPM Insights module provides a way for project managers to be on top of all the crucial changes to projects and portfolios.

After successful release of the first phase we continue with further development and enhancements of our Task Management Module. We are preparing new features and visual interface improvements to power your teams to manage projects easily and effectively.

Details of users and their permissions will be available for editing in bulk.
Our new module will support Scaled Agile Framework to help larger organizations manage some of the challenges they have when practicing and scaling agile.
