Blueprints and Best Practices

Our unique blueprinting technology allows the creation of a meta-data model of projects, services, best-practices and the knowledge of an organisation. Blueprints govern the delivery of projects, ensuring consistency and success. At the same time, Blueprints enable the collection of data each time a project is delivered and to use this data to improve forecasting and planning of future engagements.

Knowledge Management

Manage all your vital documents in one centralised location.

Access the right information at the right time to the user who needs it.

Risks, Issues and Requirements Management

Hydra provides a fully customisable structure to manage all risks and issues in your projects. States, workflows, templates can be designed to follow your existing risk or issue management processes, making sure that these crucial components of each project are always managed according to your best practices.

Time and Finance Management

Hydra gives you full control of your costs. Track your budgets and the impact of each single resource, tasks, activity or deliverable to your right line. Access accurate financial information and actual reporting to get a true picture of time and cost spent on a project.

Resource Management

Hydra provides a central hub for all your resource planning. Plan the assignments of all your resources across all your projects, avoiding over and under-utilisation and making sure that the required skills are always matching the right tasks. Easily profile your resources to accurately reflect their availability, costs, and abilities.

Capacity Planning

With Hydra it is easy to assess the impact of introducing new projects. Any resulting re-prioritisation can be implemented immediately, automatically re-distributing resources across your project portfolio. Capacity planning in Hydra gives you views of all workloads, enabling better forward planning of future projects.

What-If Scenario Planning

Analyse different scenarios and see the impact of changes on your projects and resources in real-time. Swiftly prioritise your projects based on customer, cost and other goals, and make intelligent decisions.

Skills-Based Planning

Hydra enables you to define a set of skills for each of your resources. Automatically assign tasks to the person most suitable based on their skills and availability to complete the task at the earliest time possible. Allocate resources effectively and efficiently.

Resource and Pool Planning

Tasks can easily be assigned to resources either directly or by selecting a 'pool' of resources. Hydra will then dynamically assign the resource who can complete the task the earliest without overloading any resources. Quickly build a project plan that utilises your available resources in the most efficient manner.

Reports and Dashboards

Do you spend hours creating reports that no-one reads or making dashboards that never get looked at?  In Hydra Reports you can manage information and track any data available in the system in real-time.  Create reports and dashboards that focus on the right goals, the right measurements and the right audience.
