With Vizula ‘Solo’, a Product Manager can access a range of powerful tools that enhance their product development process and help to establish credibility with peers and superiors.

From product lifecycle modelling of individual products to full product portfolio management, Vizula empowers a product manager to manage every aspect of their product development journey.
Add credibility to business plans and improve management reports

Using product lifecycle modelling, Vizula can add credibility to NPI plans and improve management reports. By utilizing Vizula's powerful product lifecycle modelling tool, Product Managers can generate well considered forecasts based on strong logical reasoning for their new product introductions, which can in turn help to make informed decisions on resource allocation, production planning, and marketing strategies.
This level of precision and attention to detail in forecasting can help build trust with management and stakeholders, as they see a Product Managers’ commitment to data-driven decision-making.

NPI competitive edge

Give your NPI development a competitive edge by using Vizula ‘Solo’ to manage your product portfolio. With Vizula's comprehensive tools, you can streamline and enhance your product development activities and make data-driven decisions, giving you an advantage over others who may be lagging behind in their product management strategies.

Product Lifecycle Modelling

Product Life Cycle (PLC) modelling is a widely accepted approach to understand the stages of a product's life, from market introduction to end of life. At Vizula, we use PLC modelling as a powerful tool to help product managers generate accurate forecasts quickly and efficiently. Our algorithms use a set of inputs to generate a PLC curve which then serves as the basis for creating monthly sales units for the product. By combining this data with sales price and target margin %, we can generate a comprehensive five-year forecast and business model, all without hours of spreadsheet maintenance.

Seven Step PhaseGate System

Vizula ‘Solo' enables you to take control of your investment in NPI by using a flexible and process driven approach for a formalised & disciplined sign-off at every key phase. This helps to maintain the visibility of each products' life cycle, tracking timescales, issues and risks with real-time informative dashboards and diarizing development slippages & actions for a lessons learned approach to NPI improvement.

Everything in One Place

Vizula offers a centralized platform to store and organize your NPI data, allowing you to focus on NPI delivery. Vizula provides an easy and flexible way to access the information you need when you need it, helping to eliminate chaos and stay organized.

'Diarization' & Lessons Learned

As your business grows, it is easy to lose track of your NPI developments. Slippages occur, products get delivered late, revenue gets delayed, plans are no longer valid and your boss wants to know why! Vizula solves some of these issues by allowing ‘diarization’ of project changes as they occur. Not only does this provide an accurate timeline of changes, it is instantly recallable on a product basis, providing a data-driven event list. Not only can this be used as input to management reports, it can be used for lessons learned improvements at the end of each project.

Interactive Product Requirements Document

The Vizula ‘Interactive Product Requirements Document (iPRD)’ is an essential tool that ensures that every product stakeholder understands the requirements of each new product. At Vizula, we understand the importance of clear communication and collaboration between the project team and the product team, and the iPRD is a key component in achieving this.

Our iPRD is at the heart of each new product, providing a mechanism for the project team to rate each requirement, indicate whether they understand the requirement and whether it can be achieved or not. This process encourages healthy discussions between the project team and the product team, closing all avenues of misunderstanding and ensuring a more efficient development process for your business.

The iPRD is an interactive document that allows stakeholders to provide feedback and comments, ensuring that all requirements are fully understood and accurately represented. This collaborative approach helps to reduce the risk of errors and misunderstandings and enables all stakeholders to work together towards a common goal.

With Vizula iPRD, you can be confident that everyone involved in the development process has a clear understanding of the product requirements. This leads to more effective product development, reduced time-to-market, and a better product overall.

Product Issues List

The Vizula ‘Product Issues List’ (PIL) is an essential tool that ensures that no key issue affecting any of your products goes unnoticed. At Vizula, we understand the importance of identifying and resolving issues quickly to ensure that every one of your products are performing at their best throughout their entire product life cycle.

Each product has its own PIL, which can be used to record every issue as it arises. This helps to ensure that all issues are captured and that nothing falls through the cracks. Team members can be assigned to each issue, giving them a priority and a due date, so that they can be resolved in a timely manner.

By using the PIL, you can monitor both open and resolved issues to indicate the 'health' of a product, whether it's still in development or later on in its sales cycle. This helps you to identify potential risks and minimize those nasty surprises that can impact your product's success.

With the Vizula PIL, you can be confident that every issue affecting your products is being tracked and resolved in a timely manner. This leads to better product quality, improved customer satisfaction, and a stronger bottom line.

Product Risks List

Managing risks is an integral part of any successful product development process. At Vizula, we understand that identifying and mitigating risks early on can make all the difference in the success of your products.

That's why we offer the Product Risks List (PRL) tool. The PRL enables you to identify all potential risks to your new products and document them in detail. Each risk is given a likelihood of happening and an impact if it does occur. These values help you prioritize the risks and determine which ones require the most attention.

Once the risks have been identified and prioritized, they can be assigned to a team member for monitoring and evaluation. This person is responsible for keeping an eye on the risk and ensuring that it is being addressed in a timely and effective manner. They are also responsible for developing a mitigation contingency plan to minimize the impact of the risk if it does occur.

By using the PRL, you can be confident that you have identified all potential risks to your products and have a plan in place to mitigate them. This leads to better product quality, improved customer satisfaction, and a stronger bottom line.

ToDo List

Vizula provides a ‘ToDo list’ task management tool personalised to you to help you never forget an important task again. You can prioritize your workload and ensure that everything is completed on time, by tracking task progress and seeing which tasks are still outstanding. This helps you to stay on top of your workload and manage your time more effectively.
