Why great project teams need more than Acumen Fuse + Risk

01. Hard to get started

Acumen Fuse + Risk has on average 70 buttons, switches, tabs and menus per screen. To figure out how to use that you need to go through lengthy tutorials and a 220 page manual and nobody has time for that.

Nodes & Links is optimised to get you up and running immediately so that you can focus on making decisions based on data – not trying to figure out how legacy software works. 

02. Do it faster with AI

With Acumen + Risk you have to go through 1,000s of activities and assign uncertainty on every one of them – based on hunch and intuition – a slow (and ambiguous) process.

You can do it faster with Nodes & Links AI – simply flip a switch and get AI generated estimates for the activity/WBS that you want, based on your project’s performance data. Mix that with estimates from your own expertise if you want, and get a fully loaded schedule in a few minutes.

03. Real Time Workshops

The way Acumen Fuse + Risk works, combined with the slow QSRA engine, means that don’t make the most of risk workshops.

With Nodes & Links, you can test assumptions and hypotheses real-time with results you can trust. All in a safe sandbox environment.

04. Expensive

Trying Acumen Fuse + Risk means at least 1 year of commitment, and $10,500, with the risk of not working out borne entirely by you. You will also need to go through lengthy procurement processes that can typically last 4-6 months. 

With Nodes & Links, you can get your AI superpowers immediately and for free, and use that lost time to save at least 250 hours from your workload.
