Get Your Project Off to a Flying Start

When do you need Hubscope?

Hubscope is particularly useful at the pre-project or project initiation phase where there is a high need for collaboration and the project scope, requirements and deliverables are very fluid. You need a way to get your project team working closely together to iterate on what the project is going to look like.

  • Is your project just starting?
  • Is your project high risk?
  • Is your project high profile?
  • Is your project a reasonably high investment?

If the answer is yes, to two or more of these questions, then Hubscope can definitely help fast track the initial phase of your project. Hubscope is easy to use and every member of the team will be able to contribute and get a better understanding of the project from the get-go.

This is really cool because basically you get this very powerful sliding scale where you can go from a very high macro level and then you can very fluidly also scale down to the micro level view and cut through all the data very easily and it’s also automatically organized for you visually as well so you don’t have to go in and reconnect the dots …
