It starts with the common challenges of plan execution
Companies often turn to what they already have and know. This might be a project management tool or business intelligence system, but MOST use Excel and PowerPoint. These tools are simply not built for plans that are integrated and span across departments and locations.
Challenged with communicating this vision to the broader organization & aligning resources
Challenged with maintaining alignment & uniformity - while promoting accountability as work is assigned across the organization
Manual processes to collect & compile updates across multiple systems impairs accountability for results
Lengthy reporting process & multiple reporting formats limits visibility & the opportunity to influence outcomes
NO STANDARD WAY OF REPORTING
Every department has their own method for reporting. This leaves organizations fighting to combine information.
NO VISIBILITY ACROSS PLANS
It's easy to understand how one department or initiative is progressing. Across plans is more difficult. Insights across the organization require zooming in and out of different systems and reports.
WORK IS SILOED
It's uncommon that initiatives are worked on in only one department. So why are the systems and reports focused on siloing information and communication?
IMPOSSIBLE TO HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE
While teams may have a handle on accountability, organizational accountability is tough. It's near impossible to understand who's working on what, the current status, and when it was last updated.

COLLABORATIVE WORK PLATFORM
The AchieveIt advantage
As the only purpose-built Integrated Plan Management solution, AchieveIt gives you the ability to track and report on all of your interconnected plans in a single, automated platform.
It combines all the best parts of multiple tools in one single platform.
THE HIGH-LEVEL OVERVIEW OF A BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE TOOL
Business Intelligence tools like Tableau, Domo, and Power BI are great tools. They enable visualizations and a data-driven understanding of "how" the organization is performing. But what about the "why"?
AchieveIt marries the data with context and supporting initiatives. This enables your organization to not just understand how, but also why. And more importantly, what work is key to impacting the data.
THE STRUCTURE OF STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT SOFTWARE
Traditional strategy development tools are great at organizing plans and creating alignment. But they often fall short at enabling effective execution and managing multiple plans across an organization. They often are also specific to certain planning methodologies limiting flexibility.
AchieveIt forces alignment no matter your planning structure and focuses heavily on processes to improve execution. Managing multiple plans is a breeze through standard and custom reporting.
THE EASE OF EMAIL
The process fails with many organizations and systems because providing updates is simply too hard. Endless clicks, minimal reminders, and no context creates frustration among employees. This frustration leads to resistance and poor adoption.
AchieveIt focuses on the end user first, making the update process a breeze. Automated update requests are delivered via email and one click opens a page for all updates, no logging in required.
THE DETAILS OF A PROJECT MANAGEMENT TOOL
Project Management tools like Monday.com, Microsoft Project, and Smartsheet are incredible at providing the details on project status. But connecting projects and zooming out is nearly impossible. Not to mention that they often require a PhD to use effectively.
AchieveIt provides the right level of detail needed while focusing on zooming out across all your projects and initiatives. And did we mention it's easy to use?
THE DIGESTIBILITY OF POWERPOINT
PowerPoint is the king of reporting in many organizations. Its simplicity and customization makes it easy to report on key updates. This customization can also cause nightmares if everyone reports in different formats.
AchieveIt enables custom and standardized reports and dashboards across one or multiple plans. Automated report distribution makes it easy digest reports and stay up to date on key initiatives.
