Subpar Visibility

Limited visibility into health of projects

prevents stakeholders from access to critical, up-to-date project information to make intelligent decisions.

Stale Reports

Inefficiency and redundancy due to inconsistent and inaccurate reporting

impacting operational decisions and internal efficiency, ultimately, lower performance.

Inability to Scale

Inability to scale swiftly to enable business growth.

What our clients say

“There are portfolio management tools out there that are competent, but they tend to require significant investment and effort to maintain. Being a medium-sized company, I did not think that they were appropriate, but I still wanted the dashboarding, visibility, and transparency.  Laminar™, with in-built PMO best practices, seemed a great fit.”
