This is where you can modify your project. There are dependencies within or between projects, effort, duration, resource assignment, cost, revenue, deliverables, activities, and all the things you need to manage your project.
At a project level your team don't need to worry - the reporting is built into their projects using our blueprint technology (customised to your needs of course). At a portfolio level you can create real-time dashboards to cover the state of your portfolio, risks and deliverables. If you need more you can also connect to our DW and use your BI of choice.
Hydra can tell you when people aren't following your best practice guidelines, but more importantly why.
This way we can tell you if its the process that needs reviewing, the training, or the resources.
Every object in the system can have it's own set of updates, and you are automatically subscribed to items you're assigned to. Talk about Projects, tasks deliverables, risks, issues, all within Hydra.
In Hydra, timesheeting is easy. You can record project and non-project time as well as holidays, PTO and any other time you need to log.Hydra also has a full timelog approval feature, with multiple methods to approve time (useful for integrating to ERP systems).
When you sign a new deal, and you need to know how quickly you can get your customer up and running this is where you come to. Capacity can tell you very easily when you can deliver a particular project, or group of projects with your current resources. It can also tell you how many new resources you need to deliver by a certain date.
Need to know how much a project is costing? You can also predict how much it will cost in the coming months, and what it will take to finish! Fixed Fee or Time & Materials, or both - Hydra can do it all.
While you can't use ALL the features of Hydra through our mobile version it's great for resources that are on the go.
They can update a status, log their time, or check the instructions on how to complete a task. They can also add a update, or approve work already completed.
Hydra tells you who is doing what and when, how utilised your teams are, and who has holiday coming up.
We can also hold a full skills matrix to make sure you allocate the right resources to the right projects.
