a leading provider of Business Process Management software improved their product
Now, more than ever, Program, Project and Product managers are
being asked to do more with less. Managing complex and dynamic Information Technology projects
requires constant attention to: Scope, Schedule, Cost and Quality.
The consequences of poorly managing any one of these constraints is increasing clear:
- The average cost overrun for large companies is 178%
- The average cost overrun for medium companies is 182%, and
- The average cost overrun for small companies is 214%.
Issues cited as causes for these overruns include: lack of user involvement, poor or missed requirements and improper planning.

RTIME™ provides the tools and techniques necessary to enable your organization to:
- Minimize or eliminate Scope Creep
- Monitor and control project Schedule
- Monitor and control project Costs, and,
- Deliver best-in-class Quality software, the first time, every time.
A tool alone can only take you so far. The project team has to buy into the need for change in order to improve. That is why Adaptability
along with Usability are the first of many critical factors that have made RTIME™ so effective. Other critical success factors include
Traceability, Discipline and
Repeatability and Communication and Reporting.
Adaptable and Simple to use
With resource and budget constraints abound, it’s extremely challenging for organizations to wrap their arms around their project work, let alone spend weeks to months rolling
out a heavy-duty tool. It’s little wonder why the behemoth company proclaiming to be ‘building a smarter planet’ doesn’t always use their own unified platform
Our consultants have witnessed this first-hand and heard the complaints from their own employees: "It’s just too cumbersome and we haven’t the time to spend weeks
RTIME™ is built on a foundation of Traceability. In fact, the beta version of RTIME (deployed in 1997) was managing Test Case2Requirements traceability for the world’s largest Telecommunications company while other products focused entirely on managing the costly outcome of bad requirements
: Exuberant budget overruns, Software Defects and dissatisfied customers. RTIME™’s traceability starts with the key relationship of Test Case coverage to Approved business requirements. And that’s just the beginning...
Discipline and Repeatability
Discipline and Repeatability are two of the capabilities that differentiate the most successful services delivery organizations. Source: Eileen Forrester, CMMI-SVC Team
. To instill discipline, some companies mandate templates be used depending on the anticipated level of effort for the project. Some continue to use a strict Waterfall approach for every project,
while other companies are attempting to take control of their SDLC by introducing Agile, SCRUM or hybrids that draw upon the best features from each discipline.
RTIME™ is pre-configured with the latest industry-standard methodologies, along with some tried-and-true hybrids that have yielded great success on our own engagements. RTIME's SDLC configurable Methodology engine provides out-of-the-box MS Project plans tied directly to the tools, techniques and deliverables of PMBOK® Fourth Edition. RTIME's administrative console allows you to adjust the level of discipline across your entire enterprise, ensuring repeatable success through a deliverable-based methodology.
Communication and Reporting
Built-in Smart Chat, Automated E-mails, Approve/Reject E-mail voting, Requirement submission via E-mail, Web-based Crystal XI reporting dashboard and power-user reporting engine, one-click MS Project Plan creation, Excel and Word export and a Requirement
audit trail that allows you to compare any 2 versions of a requirement’s history. Those are some of the key functions and features of RTIME 5.7.
