Proudly Australian designed and owned product leveraging the founder’s extensive background in program delivery. High quality and great value for money compared to the market, taking the guesswork out of program delivery, highly recommended.
Focus HQ has been our preferred PPM Business Partner for the past 4 years. They have provided a 1st class product and service to help us better understand and deliver projects and services to our customers. The greatest value is in the simplicity of the solution from implementation, operational use and support. This has ensured that even with minimal Project Management experience, my staff have been able to better manage and optimise their own portfolios of work. I highly recommend Focus HQ as a serious option for managing business programmes of work regardless of size and complexity.
Having experienced many project tools over my career, when I first encountered FHQ I knew I had discovered something new, different, and important. Unlike other tools, the unique simplicity and design of the FHQ platform means it is suitable and valuable for all projects and teams, from the very small to the very large. It provides critical early warning transparency for all initiatives including most importantly on the delivery of the business outcomes promised in the business case. It was for these reasons we at MinedOverMatter selected FHQ as our platform of choice to support our mission of helping our clients deliver their portfolios, programs and project initiatives and achieving their expected outcomes.
Focus HQ has professionalised the project management capability JLB-Yaran delivers to our clients in the Defence sector. The PPM framework provides our clients with confidence in our ability to deliver outcomes-focused results, through transparency and clarity in reporting. The agility of this software to manage our diverse portfolios differently, with tailored project templates and portfolio structures meeting our specific needs, gives JLB-Yaran an advantage in a competitive industry
We believe portfolios are established to achieve strategic objectives. In our experience, the hallmark of successful portfolios is the focus on collaboration and accountability to achieve portfolio program and project delivery success. Focus HQ provides an easy to use yet comprehensive PPM tool that provides a clear line of sight from portfolio to project health to ensure all members of the portfolio team are working together to deliver the portfolio outcomes, through project successes.
As a project manager running multiple engagements in parallel, one of the biggest benefits of Focus HQ was that all the elements to run a successful project were in one place and collaboratively produced a well laid out and accurate project status report containing all the elements and members of the team could go and update real-time. In contrast, the other project had a spreadsheet for financials, separate tasks board for tasks, PowerPoint for status reports and emails to track actions. Although both were successful projects, FocusHQ cut my daily admin time back significantly and everything was in a consistent format.
The FHQ platform has valuable project management practices embedded, is user friendly, simple and intuitive. It enables us to optimise and achieve superior results from our delivery efforts, including maximising the value delivered to our customers. We receive speedy and quality support from the FHQ team. We recommend FHQ as the platform for any organisations that needs to maximise the outcomes of their governance programs, change initiatives and projects.
AusNet Services used FHQ to manage it’s Cost Out program with over 200 initiatives from across the enterprise.
FHQ consistently provides early warnings of areas requiring attention, allowing correction before they spiral out of control, and thereby has allowed us to stay on schedule and budget, whilst allowing my team to consistently deliver high-quality results. Most importantly we all find the platform simple and easy to use and I have personally observed how it elevated our project management abilities and discipline. I highly recommend FHQ to my executive colleagues and friends. There is none like it in the market today!
The reason we used Focus HQ was their proven success and the strength and robustness of the tool.
Through the combination of a simple to use the product as well as a responsive, first-class delivery partner we were able to provide leadership with a comprehensive view on the status all business projects managed through the FocusHQ tool. I would highly recommend businesses considering Focus HQ capability when reviewing a solution to help you better manage your portfolio of business projects
