Solving Budget-Tracking Issues with a Push-of-a-Button for CMS

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)


Problem:

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) was bogged down with an antiquated budget spreadsheet system, which was not only causing user confusion, but which suffered from limited functionality and an inefficient use of time for users as status reports needed to be created manually.


Solution:

Our team responded by implementing the deeply functional Broadcom/CA Project Portfolio Management (PPM) System, which builds reports with push-of-a-button ease-- providing real-time updates and upgrades; excellent documentation; and experienced consultants to assist with configuration, training, and customizations.


Result:

CMS now has a highly centralized database system from which reports can be pulled with efficiency and ease. Our operation and maintenance of the CMS Clarity Application ensures that the client system is up to date, users are well-trained, and the tool is implemented for maximum effectiveness.
