Scalable, flexible transformation management with superior customer service

Overall I've had great experiences with Amplify and will continue to promote the tool as a solid option for strategy execution. I've confidently pitched Amplify to dozens of partners/client teams in a variety of industries including financial services, medical device sales, retail and consumer services and telecom. The tool has helped multiple large organizations achieve significant savings over long term transformations.

Pros

Overall Amplify strikes a difficult balance between PMO features and Benefit/Cost realization without spending months on developing the instance thus losing valuable time. Pros: - Its a quick process depending on how much of the program's business case is defined at launch. The tool itself under the guidance of the Amplify team can be spun up in several weeks allowing fast cost/benefit realization tracking - Its scalable, able to support programs with hundreds of initiatives without becoming unwieldy - Dynamic views of the program hierarchy specific to each user - Fast Configuration feature allows for bulk uploads of initiatives, benefit values, etc. - Tool combines PMO features with benefit maturity tracking enabling users to derive critical insights regarding financial impact of dependencies - Custom reporting with Power BI embedded supports creation of client specific reports with ability to export. In house dashboards are also user friendly - Benefit Ledger and table views are excel friendly with copy/paste options and additional options for customization - [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and the rest of the Amplify team are very accessible and wonderful to work with. They offer lots of support in the onboarding process and questions submitted by the customer service portal are answered promptly. In nearly 2 years I've never had a negative experience. - The UI and other tool features are regularly updated. Clients can also help shape future updates depending on their needs

Cons

Cons: -Some features like the investment dashboard can feel a little rigid despite customization options - Amplify supports tracking of non financial KPIs but dashboard views are limited to Power BI - Navigating in demos with admin access can feel a little overwhelming to clients at times but once users are in the tool from the Steerco to the single initiative owner there's typically no issue as it supports user specific rights. In my experience the pros far outweigh the cons and with regular updates Amplify is only becoming a better tool.

If your looking for feature rich and ease of use software that can be implemented quickly this is it

Amplify supported not only operational goals and standard annual projects but also initiatives that were intended to help the company execute a strategy during one of the most complicated times in our history (the pandemic).

Pros

Amplify was easy to implement with out of the box integration that made it easy to transition from other software and spreadsheets into Amplify in just two months. While the software has an incredible tool set out of the gate the admin capabilities add significant control to meet multiple execution strategies. User training was not complicated as it is built as a very intuitive tool. The ability to design multiple approval paths is slick, the ability to add your own custom fields can help you meet the most complex need. The audit trail capture ensure all actions are captured and available. There are a large number of reports that come with Amplify, it can be connected to PowerBI, if you have the right inhouse resources you can write your own custom reports.

Cons

I knew you were going to ask me this question. I'm finding it hard to come up something despite having used the software for over a year. In the initial selection process I independently found another customer and called them for a reference and their reference sounded just like this one. Of course sometimes we are a bit skeptical but [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] delivered 100%.

Reasons for Switching to Amplify Strategy Execution

The objective was to standard processes, eliminate tedious task, ensure information was shared and approved by the proper levels and finalization of benefits.

Integrated Risk and Results Management and Accountability Platform

Pros

I needed to quickly implement a benefits tracking system for a public sector tertiary education institution undergoing significant change, due to budget cuts. Within hours, I defined the 25 initiatives including the roles, sponsors, benefit targets and timing. The Import feature made the process very easy. Being cloud based meant that the client can implement right away.

Cons

Admittedly, the user interface needs updating to current web design standards, which I believe is in the pipeline for changing relatively soon. Also, some of the menu navigation could be more streamlined.

Easy-to-use benefits realization tool with great support

Amplify implementation follows the lifecycle of the overall program, from benefit identification to benefits realization. A couple of use cases from our client delivery: 1) A global technology company launched a large scale transformation and cost takeout: ~$2B+ incremental savings identified 100+ transformation initiatives identified Three new organizations proposed to drive customer-centricity and improved accountability 2) Driving savings by aligning capital projects with the organization’s strategic portfolio: Savings pipeline identified: $4.5B USD In process of delivering against $100M+ of identified savings, ~3 months after formal program launch

Pros

1. Amplify provides great customer support: -we were able to configure quickly multiple templates for various types of projects we deliver across our consultancy competencies -they worked with our wish list requests and promptly made enhancements to their tool 2. Intuitive and flexible 3. Power BI integration 4. Data security 5. Financial and non-financial benefits tracking

Cons

It's not quite mature on the PMO resource management. I know it's on their roadmap to address it.

Great tool bringing the transparency that we need!

Pros

Amplify helps to create the transparency that we need to steer our company effectively and enables us to react quickly in case of challenges. We have more than 430 active users in the tool and a recent internal survey showed that the majority is very satisfied with the overall tool peformance & that Amplify is intuitive to use. Due to this there are now als other functions of the company asking to use Amplify. Our Management Dashboard is a great asset and we don't create any PowerPoints anymore when presenting to the Executive Board because the Dashboard shows everything that we need. The support by Amplify is very good, both in regards to problem solving and continuous improvement of the tool.

Cons

There is some room for improvement on the Milestone & Task view.
