The problem with innovation portfolio optimization software, in general, is that the software requires too much time and effort compared to the value it delivers. Newlogic's POPS overcomes this imbalance with innovative web and PC based apps. POPS is extremely rapid to implement, easy and fast enough to use on a regular basis, and delivers a greater range of actionable insights than traditional project portfolio management solutions.

Newlogic's R&D and innovation project portfolio management applications enable innovation leaders to quickly and easily align project selections with business, marketing and technology strategy. Newlogic's POPS provides the important, factual, data need to support right-sizing innovation organizations. Our portfolio management application provides superior results, while being significantly less expensive, faster to implement and easier to use than enterprise systems. Our team has been the leading provider of this approach since 2003.

Newlogic R&D and innovation portfolio management software and services are structured specifically for the needs of innovation and new product development organizations. It addresses the unique requirements of effective early-stage decision making, including managing resource constraints, new product pipeline management, technology investments, and risks. It is uniquely structured to take into account the unknowns and ambiguity of early-stage projects at the fuzzy-front-end of innovation.

The Newlogic project portfolio management application is not limited to financial and risk criteria, it includes business and technology strategy, competitive technology positioning, project impact on technology platforms and product positioning in the marketplace. Newlogic's application seeks to maximize objectives given the constraints of the organization and technology requirements, under the conditions of uncertainties associated with your projects and inputs.
