Based in Michigan, DRIVEN-4 offers its customers a competitive edge by providing them with innovative strategies, insights and proven implementations of integrated process and technology.

Original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, are companies whose goods are used as components in the products of another company. In order to be competitive, OEMs must have plans in place that guide them to the most profitable results. These plans include budget information and hiring needs, as well as the storage of information that may be useful for future projects.

Our Product Development Portfolio and Planning software gives project managers the ability to forecast and track execution of annual product development budgets.

In addition, it provides them with the ability to insert the data required to build multiple forecasts and then generate graphs with just a click of a button. This enables them to visualize plans and choose the best possible one to build the product. It also gives them the ability to track the execution of an ongoing development and compare it with the forecast to ensure timely delivery of the product.

Our mobile app allows project managers to view updates or changes made to the project by other managers. It also allows employees to log the hours they have spent working on different projects throughout the week.

Our web app frontend uses Angular and the backend uses PTC ThingWorx, a platform to create business logic. Our mobile app is written in Xamarin and is available on both Android and iOS devices.
