What our clients say about us

“Lots of reporting options offered as standard, and easy to tweak these to suit our needs. All our portfolio of projects are now in one place where all the PMs can access them - it's also an advantage that you can access them from anywhere rather than needing to be in the office”.

Andy S, PMO Manager

“In short, this has been the most beneficial product we have used in the PMO... ever! Bestoutcome have been positive, supportive and responsive throughout. First-class experience”.

Colin D, Senior Managing Consultant

“We are now able to drive the end-to-end delivery of all of our service improvement and change programmes consistently, and through robust governance. We will be able to provide executive delivery assurance, and manage each element of our programmes and projects effectively and efficiently. From initial discussions and product demonstrations, it was clear that PM3 was an industry-strength PPM software”.

Paul F, Operational Development Consultant

We selected PM3 because we liked its simple interface and tailored NHS functionality. The fact that PM3 is widely used in the NHS was another factor in us choosing PM3. PM3 will be a key tool for us in managing the hospitals integration programme. PM3 is already expanding with other departments coming on board. Our project managers can now work in one standard way and the project / programme highlight reports can be automatically generated from PM3.”

Kandarp Thakkar, Director of Integration & Transformation

“We selected PM3 because of its extensive use in the NHS, its ease of use and powerful and efficient reporting mechanisms. We have some very good project management practices across CMCA, but we wanted to have a more standardised and consistent approach which PM3 will facilitate and support”.

Sarah Atherden, PMO Manager

“Our overall experience has been incredibly positive. The consultancy and support we have received really helped lay the ground work for us to implement the tool in the right way. The training design and execution was brilliantly done, and made sure we understood the tool and had the support network in place to ask questions”.

Nicholas L, PMO Manager

"We chose PM3 because, it proved comparable to its competitors and at the end of it all offered the best value for money in line with functional and other requirements. We also wanted to build on the success of PM3, relationships built and growth of usage over the last 3 years which inevitably strengthens the case for further roll-out and embedding across HEE”.

Anderson John, Portfolio Assurance Manager

"One thing I will feed back is that the users love it, It's literally pushed the PMO to the next level of maturity in a relatively short period of time and showing dividends in terms of the reduction of manual effort and transparency".

Christine Dixon, PMO Project Coordinator
