A Word about Data

All the data you see here is user definable. You can create as many different ways to slice and dice the roadmap as you need.

Roadmap Builder doesn’t come with a pre-defined heavy duty data model. We’ve found these models are counterproductive – they hurt and slow implementations more than they help.

Instead our implementation team helps you define the minimum data you need to collect to meet your roadmap objectives. This dramatically reduces time to value, and the system is designed so it’s easy to add more.
