Created using English and Latin derivatives, Sciforma means “the science of planning”. In 1982, they introduced the first project management solution to the market, a Project Scheduler, and for the past three decades, they have been providing advanced project and portfolio management tools to organizations.
Sciforma can be sold as a stand-alone portfolio management, project management, or time and expense tracking program. Integrated within their tool, they also offer knowledge, resource, and document management. Sciforma is fully configurable, from unlimited user-defined fields that can adapt to your unique business structure, to their tailored and intuitive interfaces. User defined workflows can follow the various states of a project, document, or issue, so users always have access to the most up-to-date information. One of the advantages of this system is the Sciforma Download Center. Here, users can go to one central location to download new releases, documents, and extensions.
Sciforma is available as an on-premise, hosted, or SaaS system. By offering various versions of deployment, users can decide which is best for their needs, including the fact that they can eliminate the need to purchase and maintain IT hardware. Sciforma is also fully supported by HTML5 and is accessible from any mobile device.
When considered in a report from Gartner along with 30 other programs, Sciforma received a positive rating. They are a great fit for medium to large sized organizations, especially those in engineering, IT services, management consulting, and research and development.
