Epicflow’s mission has always been to make complex multi-project environments easy to lead and manage. As their next step, the Epicflow team has enhanced their product suite with the Dazzle Dashboard release.

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, September 28, 2018 — Glow Management Nederland B.V. has announced a major release of its Epicflow analytical web-based software for managing multiple projects. Realizing that business leaders still lack control and a holistic overview of their multi-thousand-task projects from a single place, Epicflow has rolled out a Dazzle Dashboard release to get you on top of your projects in real-time.

Epicflow has already redefined project management standards for electrical engineering, manufacturing, shipbuilding, construction, health care and software development by moving from a single-project to a multi-project perspective.

 

This time we solve C-levels’ dilemma on how to be on top of long-term planning and distinguish current fires,” says Yuri Warczynski, co-creator of Epicflow and member of the advisory board. “The right information at the right time leads our clients to better decisions. They can be in control and feel much more powerful.”

 

Real-time project trends

A dashboard with a bubble graph neatly displays trends across multiple projects. It allows C-levels to see detailed project flow across time and detect projects that need urgent attention. The purpose of the graph is to visualize the progress of several ongoing projects in a way that ensures that project managers can act while they’re still in control and able to change the situation. Instant animations can show stakeholders how projects are developing over time.

 

Moving milestones: fix the weakest link in a few clicks

A newly added Pipeline feature lets users adjust planning in real time. Due dates of milestones can be moved, triggering the system to re-plan everything on the fly. By moving milestones, it’s possible to find a resource schedule that fits each milestone so you can finish projects on time and avoid bottlenecks.

 

Support for multiple resource pools

Epicflow integrates data from Jira, MS Project, Primavera, and CSV to improve resource scheduling efficiency and add analytical value. The system allows project managers to import and consolidate resource pools from multiple departments that use different Jira and MS Project instances.

 

Security

The Epicflow team works hard to protect client information and put it in control. Epicflow follows IT industry security standards and is GDPR-compliant.

 

While conducting his PhD research, co-creator and product manager Albert Ponsteen noticed that it was extremely complicated to get a holistic picture of multiple complex projects. That’s why he focused Epicflow product development on features that let project and business leaders see across projects and get a clear view of flow in the portfolio.

 

According to Ponsteen, “the swamps of project planning data should be organized in a manner so that all levels of staff—from senior management to employees—can see what to do next. What we’re trying to do is to make sure that all the involved parties can take actions before something pushes the project over the edge.”

About Epicflow

Epicflow is web-based software for managing multiple projects from a single place. From the creation ten years ago of Epicflow’s earlier version—Flow MPM—until today, the Epicflow team has been continually improving their product’s design, functionality, and service based on clients’ needs and the latest findings of Epicflow researchers. Epicflow’s mission was to come up with a project management solution that would not only bring simplicity and order to the galaxy but also avoid project delays and cost escalations while keeping teams focused and proactive.

Albert Ponsteen and Jan Willem Tromp have dedicated their entire lives to exploring the challenges that project managers face in multi-project environments. After interviewing 4,000 business experts for their doctoral work, these researchers developed a new project planning paradigm — the Flow algorithm — for preventing management overhead, reducing overload, and setting priorities.

To yield better project performance, the Flow philosophy encourages executives to resolve bottlenecks as soon as they appear. This is the most effective way to create perfect flow in projects. By knowing where projects get stuck and controlling workloads, project managers are more likely to meet due dates. But in contrast to critical chain project management, the Flow algorithm encapsulates both resource and time buffers to enable a resource-centered approach. Taking care of your team by preventing overload is at the heart of the new generation of critical chain project management software. With Epicflow, you can look at the capacity of all groups and track team performance at any time with minimal planning overhead.

Epicflow’s powerhouse of algorithms allows project managers and C-level executives to keep total control of their projects at various levels and avoid project delays. Epicflow integrates into MS Project, Primavera, Jira and supplies senior managers with real-time insights across all projects about optimal priorities, unfeasible milestones, overload, choke points, and more in the form of analytical graphs and suggests what to do next to finish multiple projects on time and on budget. Epicflow has iOS and Android to connect office to production sites and keep all workers updated in real time.
