Amplify™ users, with appropriate roles and write-access, are able to create new initiatives, e.g. projects and programmes within a portfolio, and enter detail including; associated components, such as schedule, team, cost and benefit profiles, and relevant RAID items (Risks, Assumption, Issues and Dependencies)
Once baselined plans are in place, e.g. with cost and benefit profiles, actual data (‘actuals’) may be added. Typically, this will be done by the person responsible, e.g. the project manager, the business change manager, or benefits analyst, using the most appropriate method.
Amplify™ enables users to enter information, such as; field names, labels, titles and descriptions as well as textual data, including comments and narrative. Users are able to upload documents and manage them in Amplify™, and link to the information stored and/or managed in other systems.
Amplify™ Home Screen
Data can be added by users directly from their home page, as and when actual data entry is due. Reminder notifications can be triggered to ensure timely updating e.g. in accordance with a relevant measurement schedule or cost plan.
Cost and benefit data can be imported using the appropriate export/import template method at all, and any, level of the initiative hierarchy, e.g. for a project, programme or portfolio.
Benefits and costs ledger
Cost and benefit data items can be added individually or cut and paste as an array of data from an Excel spreadsheet.
Schedule information from Microsoft Project and Primavera P6 can be integrated with Amplify™ through a simple ‘drag and drop’ procedure.
