PureSoftware Solution

PureSoftware’s healthcare domain experts worked for the client during the US time zone to define and design an effective Project Management process for them.

We defined and followed PMI processes as per PMBOK and detailed the tasks under WBS for better clarity. We also trained their resources about the HealthCare industry best practices to help them cater to their customer queries and achieve a higher turn-around.

We guided them on Milestones Depiction via project plan and release alignment and advised them to reach on an internal agreement on the release deliverable date prior to client commitment. Our team also helped them schedule monthly/weekly client status meetings for project progress and enforced the change control process for scope management.

To improve the effectiveness of the entire project management process, we came up with a project level JIRA dashboard for progress visibility and release readiness and followed RAID logs for risk management.

Our expertise helped them see immediate improvements and achieve profitable results.
