next portfolio

This software tool provides you with a quick and easy overview of all your projects.

All Your Data in One Place

Accurate and current data are the basis for informed decisions. With the help of the software’s powerful and comprehensive project portfolio view function you will be able to easily recognise trends, deviations and structural problems in your project at an early stage, and you will be able to take immediate corrective action. This software offers you the advantages of a central data base and the familiar user interface of MS Excel.


Versatile Views

Automatic, clear and well presented – just a few clicks away:

Project Viewer - Find status information about a single project (text, tables, symbols, charts) that are critical to the project control cycle
Project pipeline - a popular way to present a classic portfolio
The matrix chart is similar to the portfolio chart, however, it slightly shifts the coordinates within clusters to avoid the overlapping of multiple projects
This bar chart displays multiple projects on a consistent time scale - and the baseline plan, milestones, and relationships to other projects as required
Resource Histogram - demonstrates staffing bottlenecks across all projects
next portfolio is able to exchange master data and project data with next project or other third-party systems

Easy Set-Up

  • The database can be installed on an existing MS SQL server.
  • Simple and flexible licencing model (company licence from 10,000 Euro)
  • Optional: We can customise this tool according to your needs. From the initial installation to creating additional views and the programming of interfaces to third-party systems - we are here to identify all your requirements and customise next portfolio accordingly.
  • Optional: Webinars and classroom training will ease you into the use of next portfolio – in less than a day you will be an expert!
  • Optional: Maintenance and support is available as required.

What our customers say about us

"Since 2004, VERBUND has been using next level consulting’s project portfolio management solutions. In 2014, we switched to the database-based next portfolio in combination with Infopath forms. Our project managers can upload their current project data directly into the database as well as download the latest data from the database. This feature has had a major impact on data availability, and project portfolio reporting has been significantly reduced. In addition, we can flexibly export information from next portfolio to any SharePoint list (for example, Lessons learned from Close-down reports). The high degree of flexibility of the tool thus offers numerous application possibilities and covers our requirements ideally."

Mag. Reinhard Prey

Corporate Development, VERBUND AG

"In conjunction with the project management tool next project, which was already used by us, we were able to use the relevant synergies for the company-wide project portfolio evaluation and use next portfolio to bundle the existing project data. With this application, we are able to evaluate important information such as resource utilization, budgets and project progress on a group-wide basis from the internal project portfolio management of the BUWOG Group, and use it as a basis to prepare strategic decisions for our top management."

Siegfried Weikl, B.A.

Project Manager, BUWOG AG

"The Austrian Energy Agency is a project-oriented non-profit scientific association. The efficient management of our projects is particularly important for our customers and our employees. With next level consulting, we have set up the necessary tools (next project and next portfolio) in the establishment phase and subsequently continually developed them according to the requirements. As a result, we have optimized our projects in an optimal way and are therefore prepared for the future. Through regular project management trainings and other project management activities, we create the basis for the continuous development of the project culture in the Austrian Energy Agency."

Christoph Doerfflern

Head of Project Management, AUSTRIAN ENERGY AGENCY

"Why did we choose next project and next portfolio? That is quite easy to answer. On the one hand, I can provide our project managers with a "central thread" for my work and provide them with all important data with our interfaces on time. On the other hand, I have all the data available in next portfolio at all times – thus our management is always informed."

Herwig Kerschbaum

System Technology, Project Management, ÖBB-Technische Services GmbH

We use the next pm suite ourselves. Our project managers plan projects with next project. They report a current status every other month. The data in next portfolio is updated via project assignments and status reports, and on this basis decisions are made in the framework organization, and projects are prioritized. I've seen a lot of tools in my consulting career with customers, and I love to work with this simple and widely accepted IT support.
