Atturra has executed a partnership agreement with Focus HQ, to resell and support the company’s Australian developed SaaS-based portfolio management platform that predicts, automates and guides local government projects to success.
Atturra has more than ten years’ experience working with over 100 local government agencies across both Australia and New Zealand. Its custom designed technology expertise helps local government organisations drive greater customer satisfaction and user experiences, with solutions which combine to improve overall data quality and create operational efficiencies.
Focus HQ is an Australian-owned, market leading portfolio and project management technology designed by executive practitioners, leveraging cloud, data and analytics to deliver transparency, control and results for projects in a way that has not been done before. Focus HQ delivers SaaS on a native cloud platform available 24x7x365, with functionality from strategic alignment and scenario planning through to project delivery, benefits realisation, and advanced reporting and analytics.
The company works with local government councils in Australia where its project management software supports reporting on council requirements in areas, including asset health, construction and civil works, capital works, ICT and business transformation programs. By taking on Focus HQ, Atturra will now provide local government organisations with the tools and methodology to gain full insight into project portfolios and dramatically improve the speed of reporting.
Adrian Tyler, CEO and Managing Director of Focus HQ, said: “The great track record of Atturra’s work in local government provides a strong synergy between our cloud-based software and Atturra’s delivery service. At the same time, working with specialist partners which aim for market leadership and customer experience excellence is critical to the success in creating ongoing momentum for our project management software solutions. We’re looking forward to building a successful business together in the years ahead.”
The offering will enable councils to analyse projects and their portfolio, while also drastically removing inaccuracy, reducing risk and increasing project performance. Traditionally, many councils have deployed multiple portfolio management tools which over time have made it difficult to obtain a single source of information. Operating a single source of truth methodology within a governance framework enables users to eliminate hybrid and disjointed information collation and distribution.
An all-in-one tool, Focus HQ removes the need for spreadsheets enabling teams to track all projects, regardless of the size or complexity, quickly and easily. Stakeholders are presented only the key information relevant to their roles, which facilitates faster and more proactive decision making. Project alignment can be mapped to business strategy outcomes and scenario planning, while projects can remain active until sign-off of the pre-defined business benefits are realised.
“We’re excited about working with Focus HQ to better service the project management requirements among today’s local government organisations,” said Richard Hill, Executive General Manager Atturra Business Applications. “The combination of our services and the inherent feature set of Focus HQ to provide fast, quality focus delivery will enable significant savings and realise projects which can deliver value to organisations."
