The Hyde Group selects the Antura Projects PPM Tool

The Hyde Group in the UK has exchanged spreadsheets and other tools for the PPM tool Antura Projects. The investment is an important part of their work in streamlining their change portfolio management strategies and prioritization for their ambitious change portfolio.

After a competitive selection process, Hyde chose Antura´s PPM Tool, Antura Projects, and the agreement was signed in late 2021. The reasons they chose Antura Projects included:

  • Having one PPM Tool to replace the use of multiple spreadsheets and other tools

  • Managing all project portfolios, reporting information, linking to strategies and prioritisation, and allowing for “what if” simulation functionality

  • Resource management, from capacity planning through time reporting and follow-up

  • Project planning, including having multiple project models, and measuring costs and benefits

  • Being able to integrate with other systems, including financial management tools and Jira

-We are delighted that Hyde has selected Antura Projects as their PPM Tool after a competitive process and look forward to a long working relationship. Signing one of England’s leading housing associations represents Antura’s continuing growth in the UK public sector, especially as we are a supplier on the UK’s Crown Commercial Service G-Cloud 12 framework, said Timothy Bull, Antura Group Sales & Marketing Manager UK & Ireland. 

The implementation of Antura Projects at Hyde has already begun, with initial plans to roll out to about 100 users in year one. There are already plans to add more functionality within Antura Projects, in the future.

-As we support Hyde’s implementation of their new PPM Tool, we will now help them get started properly and ensure that they can more easily control and analyze the development of their portfolios and prioritize their projects in a more efficient way. Antura generally recommends a gradual implementation process as it helps user adoption and gives more opportunity to define and prioritize how they will use Antura Projects long term, said Magnus Säfström, Senior Project Manager and Business Consultant at Antura.

With the introduction of Antura Projects as their new PPM tool, Hyde will now be able to take a holistic approach.

About Antura
Since 2001, Antura has been successfully supplying organizations across multiple industries around the world with the Antura Projects PPM tool – a complete solution for project, portfolio, and resource management. Antura Projects has over 250,000 satisfied users in more than 50 countries and is highly appreciated for the functionality and user-friendliness, which are decisive factors in successfully introducing a new PPM tool.

”As a public sector organization, we have to carefully consider any investments we make. After considerable market testing, we decided that Antura was exactly the tool we were looking for as other PPM tools we’ve seen focus on the project management side and not the bigger picture we were looking for. Antura Projects’ flexibility means that we can manage any type of project in the tool, which will then give us the ability to demonstrate the entire view of all change across Hyde.”
