Update to IPA’s Project Data Portal Software Focuses on Improving User Experience
ASHBURN, VA (October 16, 2023) – Independent Project Analysis (IPA) is in the process of updating its Project Data Portal (PDP), the online data capture tool that enables project teams to securely and easily submit project data to IPA for Project Evaluation System (PES®) assessments. The latest update aims to improve user experience and further reduce the effort for clients when providing project-specific data. IPA clients can expect to begin using the updated software in the first quarter of 2024, following testing with a selected group of projects during the fourth quarter of 2023.
The PDP was launched in 2020 to streamline the data provision process for IPA clients. The web-based application captures project information all phases of a project’s development, enabling for IPA to analyze the data multiple times across the project’s life cycle. Existing functionality will be maintained for this update and some functionality will be added, including:
- Greatly enhanced user experience featuring an easy-to-use and intuitive interface and improved organization of workbooks designed for easy consumption
- Improved security, including two-factor authentication (2FA) log-ins
- Continued user capability to appoint and delegate completion of workbook modules to different team members
- Continued user capability to securely transmit supporting documentation files to IPA
Industry-leading owner companies have relied on IPA for decades to better understand their projects’ risks, readiness, and performance. The PDP has proven to be an essential tool for our clients over the last several years by maximizing efficiency during the data gathering phase.
