Project Planning & Prioritization
Project Planning means being able to capture all initiatives that you would like to fund. The keywords are 'like to fund'. Project Prioritization allows you to select the right projects to fund.

Your business needs to change and adapt. Inpensa SaaS platform has the ability to take all the new ideas flowing through the system and it is able to take the demand and match it up against supply.
Business Case Management & Analysis
Project Controls & Financial Tracking
Project Controls and Financial Tracking is the ability to look at projects from an end to end perspective. What we find is a lot of project portfolio management solutions are focused on time-tracking tasks and scope management.
Benefits Realization & Project Outcomes
Inpensa SaaS platform is a system purpose-built to manage benefits realization. We look at benefits realization and managing project outcomes as a separate discipline. It is different than just tracking project if it is on time or on budget.
Capital Planning allows you to make projections over a period of time. Many progressive organizations are moving from an annual twelve-month planning cycle to a more continuous planning process.
Proper Capital Planning means to be able to understand what your capital spend will be and then the follow-on of that. It is also to be able to track that capital spend over time and re-project on an ongoing basis.
Project Budgeting (Annual and Continuous) is a challenge for a lot of organizations. We see more and more companies going from an annual project budget into more of a continuous planning cycle. The benefit of that is that you have visibility beyond twelve months into your spend.
Resource & Demand Planning
Project Portfolio Strategic Planning
Demand for project dollars has always exceeded supply but that ratio has increased significantly over the recent past.
Evaluating risk versus reward for one or a handful of project proposals can be managed without much inconvenience.
The real challenge surfaces when the influx of requests impacts the ability to choose the best proposals for advancement.
That challenge is further compounded by the lack of or the enforcement of an immature process.
Without the benefit of standardization, many organizations become truly blind when it comes to allocating discretionary spend.
