Flexible Project Management Feature Lets Decision Makers Dynamically Filter, View, and Analyze Productivity Data
Seattle , WA —October 22, 2014 — LiquidPlanner, creators of the industry’s only priority-based, predictive project management solution, today introduced Tags, a feature that provides an intuitive, social way for organizations to add metadata to any aspect of their project portfolio. With Tags, project leaders can tap into the vast amount of unstructured data that is nearly impossible to access in traditional tools. Now teams working in LiquidPlanner can automatically link related content or associate work items to one or many categories for multi-dimensional data striping. For instance, Tags can be used to tie departmental projects to corporate initiatives (e.g., #sustainability, #growth) or to analyze investments related to a particular feature set or platform (e.g., #mobile, #API) to optimize business results.
“Knowledge workers have become increasingly data-driven over the past decade,” said Liz Pearce, CEO of LiquidPlanner. “Executives expect to request data from their teams and get it nearly instantaneously, so they can make rapid, informed decisions about all aspects of their business. Tags provide a way for teams and project managers to answer this call without integrating a separate business intelligence platform or adding new instrumentation to existing systems.”
In LiquidPlanner, Tags can be explicitly added to individual work items, dynamically inherited from parent containers, or extracted from comments (similar to Twitter’s tagging convention) or email.
Once in place, Tags become a powerful tool for teams to:
- Build and publish custom analytics reports to answer fundamental business questions, such as which initiatives are over- or under-funded;
- Filter the overall portfolio view to see plan details, schedules, and status by tag;
- Access Tag-specific comment streams, collateral, and even alerts.
