Project Description

“Without a PMO software solution, reporting on the status of our projects would be an onerous task. Previously it would take three days to collect and combine Excel spreadsheets and import into MS Project to provide a Gantt chart view by which time the report would already be out of date. Now I can run real time reports showing the whole project lifecycle with the high-level timeline view in each project site allowing me and others to see how a project is progressing at any given time and to provide consolidated reports for management purposes.

The Bridgeall team are excellent to work with. They spent time understanding our challenges and ideas for improvement and worked with the Board to develop timely solutions.

Their customer service is excellent, with their service desk response time being extremely quick.”

Denise Lyden, Manager Programme Management Office, Strategy and Programmes, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde

NHS GGC is the largest NHS organisation in Scotland and one of the largest in the UK. With an annual budget of £3.1 billion, and employing 39,000 people, it is responsible for the effective delivery of high quality health services to a population exceeding 1.14 million.

With technology being a key enabler of continuous improvement and transformation, the eHealth Directorate manages a large portfolio of projects at any one time. Consequently, a robust project portfolio management software solution was required to control the growing number and complexity of programmes under its control. With an over-reliance on manual processes, using numerous excel spreadsheets, project reporting had become a very time-consuming process.

Utilising SharePoint Online and Power BI, Microsoft’s data visualisation platform, the Bridgeall solution delivered a cost-effective way of standardising processes and documentation to support all stages of the project management lifecycle, reducing the need for less efficient processes.
