Reconstructing resource management tools to simplify tasks, drive collaboration and facilitate action.
People who use technologies at home expect the same ease of use and intuitiveness for the tools they use in the workplace. But enterprise tools aren’t keeping up with the pace of change. Many product and portfolio management (PPM) solutions force resource managers to create entire workflows or navigate through multiple screens just to see the fundamental component of resource management—what their people are working on.
Resource managers also cite shortcomings such as no simple way to perform everyday tasks, communicate in context with others, drill down into key information, narrow the field of resources and forecast financials and model outcomes.

Mobility breaks these shackles and enables workers to change the way they work.
In collaborative spaces, people naturally share ideas, which leads to innovation and growth. But how do you design a workplace that provides a highly collaborative atmosphere and that incorporates what people want?
