Products – Project & Change Management
Proofpoint's project and change management systems provide a common sense, easy to follow, easy to measure method of tracking the data that are most important to you and your stakeholders. You get timely, relevant, permissions-based information at every organizational level via highly intuitive, user friendly dashboards. Proofpoint's systems foster team communication, collaboration, and information sharing.
Once you've completed an analysis, Proofpoint's S2 provides a way to make defensible solution decisions and assign responsibilities to internal and external resources.
The system summarizes the internal and external costs of removing the performance barriers, and shows the impact, dollar benefit, and ROI projections for each potential solution.
Using this information project teams and decision makers can simulate various solution combinations to determine which set of actions best serves the organization.
|Project Management & Oversight||
Proofpoint's PMO is a common sense way to manage projects — from the team leader to the executive suite. Combined with our Inter-team information Sharing System, organizations gain the ability to integrate projects in matrixed and networked environments.
The system provides standard communication and tracking templates for action officers and program leads. Information templates can be customized for each project type and incorporate systems of record data to reduce data entry and increase data quality.
These work screens can be as simple or as complex as the organization desires. Initially, Proofpoint recommends only a few functions be activated and displayed. As the user population gains confidence in the system and processes, additional functions may be activated.
The deployment of this system requires little to no additional work for the staff. In fact, it is highly likely that staff time associated with current data collection and reporting will be significantly reduced — between 20-40% — due to point-and-click data entry, elimination of duplicate efforts, the ability to auto-generate reports, and other easy-to-use functions.
|Executive Decision Management||
A well-known adage in the world of fast moving fighter aircraft is, "Speed is life." To survive, pilots must make good decisions faster than their adversaries-and their own aircraft. The best pilots mentally fly their planes far ahead of their actual location. They anticipate, envision, and plan.
Proofpoint's executive decision management system helps leaders assess recommended and ongoing projects, and gain decision superiority via a combination of improved visibility, cross boundary (vertical and horizontal) awareness, and organizational alignment.
For executives who pilot complex, high-risk, and extreme-consequence organizations the decision requirements are similar. The faster that they can make good decisions — based on facts — the faster their organizations can achieve superiority relative to their clients, competitors, and operational challenges.
EDMS helps leaders maximize their available resources and create the right mix of capabilities to succeed and win.
|Inter-Team Information Sharing||
Proofpoint's IIS aligns and integrates organizational efforts vertically and horizontally. It's a common information sharing environment where key programs and initiatives can be visualized, linked, and coordinated.
IIS provides a common approach to initiative execution and metrics management, enhanced information transparency, and an ability to exploit emerging information.
In addition, the metadata related to multiple projects, developed over time and resident in the database, provides key information on critical operational performance issues by operational area, department, geography or numerous other data dissections.
Proofpoint's Capacity Management System is primarily a government application for managing foreign aid and investment support, adapted from our Project Management & Oversight module.
US agencies often conduct a variety of capacity development efforts, but without one lead agency or overall plan. State, USAID, and DoD tend to lead the main efforts at key host nation ministries, departments, and agencies with funding allocations totaling hundreds of millions of dollars annually.
In the "post-triage" phase of relief efforts, aid shifts from post-disaster stabilization to laying the foundation for a renewed country. This foundation is formed from a combination of successes and progress toward development goals that can restore hope.
We've modified our award winning analysis systems in response to an increase in safety related incidents in the rail industry. The resulting safety management and review system is a web-based safety management and accountability suite that helps improve safety, simplify compliance, and reduce risk.
This application is the emerging standard for common sense analysis, team collaboration, and continuous performance improvement.
The system provides a single collection point for all critical safety data, a dependable information repository, a point-and-click method for generating reports required by external oversight entities, and an intuitive yet scientific approach for risk reduction.
The system meets the needs of any high risk organization — large or small — that wants to increase reporting precision, reduce rules violations and incidents, reduce liability, support a data driven decision culture, and noticeably improve safety operations.
