Drag and Drop Documents

Drag it, drop it, share it, forget it – uploading documents and associating them with your PI makes it easy to collaborate across teams. If you have sensitive information you don’t want to upload, link to it’s location on your company intranet or other repositories.


Screening

After an opportunity is raised it is screened to make sure the appropriate individuals see it and apply the correct level of effort. This helps disposition process improvements so leadership can manage projects and know what’s going on at all levels.

PI Screening


Put the Experts on it

As you formalize the PI, you want all the relevant information up front and personal. All the details of a PI are displayed in magazine-style with clear headers and descriptions, so each user is up to speed within seconds of opening the record. Expand or collapse sections to get the view you want.
