Project Management is Critical to Business Performance & Organizational Success
According to a PwC study, 97% of organizations believe that project management is critical to business performance and organizational success. The study found that 44% of project managers do not use any software, despite that using commercially available project management software has been known to improve performance and project satisfaction.
If your team or department is experiencing shallow data analysis, unmanageable spreadsheets and reports, and redundant and manual data collection and validation, you need project controls software. ARES PRISM provides in-depth insight, flexible dashboards and reports, and automated data entry validation.

Why Using Excel Is Lining You Up For Failure
Replacing Spreadsheets for Project Management Software
Even though best-in-class organizations are using project management software to deliver their projects successfully, many organizations are slow to adopt software. According to a 2018 study conducted by Wellingtone, only 22% of organizations use a project management software. Meanwhile, 55% of organizations do not have access to real-time key performance indicators (KPIs). As a result, half of respondents said that they spend one or more days manually collating project reports – highlighting the immense productivity gains using project management software brings.
Spreadsheets are a powerful tool; there’s no question in that. However, using spreadsheets to manage a multi-billion-dollar project is risky. Ultimately, the question is whether you are 100% confident in the project data and have absolute control. Organizations that use MS Excel to manage their portfolio of projects are limited in project size– constantly checking for errors, combatting version control or security, and scrambling to gather data for month-end reporting. It’s time to shift to strategic project management using project controls software.
ARES PRISM provides a role-based platform that simplifies data collection, validation, and month-end reporting. The result: real-time forecasting and predictive trend analysis.
