Is your PM team stretched too thinly? Are there too many competing interests? Do you need more PM resources but can’t add more FTE’s? We can help by bringing our considerable skills and experience to bear so you can guarantee success. Using Seapoint Solutions as your Project Management as a Service (PMaaS) partner allows you to scale your resources as needed.
Our ability to provide an independent perspective and voice helps us spot the warning signs before your project goes off the rails and do something about it!
Modern business environments and solutions have brought us SaaS, iPaaS, IaaS (infrastructure), DaaS (desktop) and a range of other “as a service” offerings. These all offer the benefit of securing software or services on a scalable and, as needs basis which are generally tied to a subscription model. This reduces the initial outlay vs the traditional perpetual licensing model, and facilitates changes to the level or nature of the “service” being provided. Need more users, additional functionality etc, adjust the subscription.
How does Project Management as a Service fit into this model? The transition to this model enables the delivery of PM services on demand. We are able to build a delivery model focused on outcomes and a framework for delivery against a specific objective.
Our team can augment your existing PM team where bandwidth is an issue or become your PM team if you don’t have one while our flexible options reduce the impact of adding additional FTE staff. You may be able to roll the cost of the PM into the capital cost of your project. We can also fill the temporary role of Program Manager to help set the direction of your projects so that your team has a clear strategy to work with.
We offer Project Management as a Service on a time and materials, per engagement, or, on a subscription basis. If you choose the subscription model, the more hours you subscribe to per month, the more economical it becomes for you – and at a known cost!
