The Matrix Grid
With Scientrix, leaders can build their preferred strategy models, align teams to objectives and key results, manage lean portfolios, execute projects in an agile way and track impact.
Scientrix offers flexible, layered grids as a canvas for mapping strategic models. These grids and their content are stored in libraries and can be shared amongst users and enable collaboration within and across teams.
The MatrixGrid allows users to create solutions and then drill down/deep dive/cascade on multiple levels, whilst maintaining connections between layers. This is achieved through a unique modular architecture.
The elements in a Matrix-Grid are called performance cells. These elements represent value creation points.
Within an element a team comes together to define goals, to initiate ideas and manage them through stages, to establish and track success metrics, to identify and mitigate risks and add supporting information such as definitions, notes, documents and more.
Understanding the project essentials in one view is what Scientrix is particularly good at. Initiatives modules such as task boards, Gantt charts, metrics, issues, risks, dependencies and more are available and can be flexibly used. To further increase flexibility users can define searchable custom fields for specific needs.
Scientrix offers a hybrid between traditional project management and agile work methods to accommodate different users’ project management preferences. Projects can be filtered by a variety of criteria to create custom reports. Reports can be downloaded into pdf and csv (Excel) formats.
Task boards in Scientrix are used to breakdown initiatives into smaller pieces of work and also for users to manage their day to day operations from their personal dashboards.
Tasks can be grouped and rolled up. This is especially useful when creating sprints. Managing tasks can either be done in lists, Kanban boards or Gantt charts.
Risk & Issue Management
Scientrix has embedded risk management capabilities on every level. Users can visualize a consolidated dashboard of all risks within a Grid.
Issue management is a feature that is not very common in other platforms. Issues are events that may negatively impact the successful implementation of the project whilst risks are events that may negatively impact the results we want to get from the project. Both are important to take into consideration when managing initiatives.
One of Scientrix’s most advanced features is the way in which metrics are created, rolled-up and managed. The process is seamless and provides instant feedback in the form of dashboards, graphs and lists.
Metrics can be instantly visualized in interactive graphs. These can be downloaded and used for other reporting purposes. Scientrix offers customizable metric templates where users can decide how they want to view the data.
One of the key strengths of Scientrix’ metrics is the easy way in which Scientrix allows its users to define custom formulas for the aggregation of metrics. Commentary can easily be added to graphics and are especially useful during review sessions.
Metric data can be imported and exported using CSV (Excel) files or the REST-API. The process is seamless and simply requires the user to update the metrics in a pre-establish format, and then to action the upload. All the metrics will then be updated accordingly.
Graphs and Analytics
Scientrix went one step further when it comes to metrics. With our advanced graphs capability, individual users can easily create comparative graphs using available metrics without the involvement of IT.
Users also can customize how graphs are visualized by changing the display format (pie charts, line graphs, columns and more) and modifying the colors, titles, time periods etc.
Libraries & Data
Libraries are used throughout the system for information objects such as matrix-grids, elements, initiatives, metrics, competencies, risks, charts, tags and documents.
Not only does this speed up design and modeling, it provides a secure space to store valuable information. From a user perspective, the availability of these libraries serves to eliminate duplications.
UX & Support
Scientrix is very intuitive, with minimal training required. Our team puts a lot of emphasis on the user experience. The platform has a clean and clear design, highlighting critical information and not overwhelming the user with too much unnecessary information or explications.
All users have access to a help center where they can find tutorials and use cases to guide them along the way. The help center also has a section in which users can provide feedback on the user experience and provide recommendations. We take feedback very seriously and urge users to help us to improve the platform.
