Why You Need Budget and Other Project Controls Dashboards

Budget and project controls are essential for any organization that wants to manage its projects effectively and efficiently. Budget and project controls help to plan, monitor, and control the project costs, scope, schedule, quality, and risks. However, budget and project controls can be challenging and time-consuming, especially when dealing with complex and large-scale projects that involve multiple stakeholders, resources, and deliverables.

For project managers, budget and project controls dashboards are visual tools that display the key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics of your projects in a single platform. That’s where WorkPAK comes into play.

WorkPAK’s built-in business intelligence (BI) dashboards help you track and measure the progress, health, and performance of your projects in real time, using interactive graphs, charts, tables, and other elements. Efficiently review and make informed decisions and adjustments to ensure your projects adhere to budget and timeline constraints, saving time compared to formatting your reports for hours.
