UMT360 Portfolio Financial module (add-on to MS Project Server) is a great tool that servers our needs in getting more cost/benefit tracking and change control, it integrates with project server so that we didn't have to start from scratch with our existing investment and processes. UMT360 is very easy to work with, extremely responsive and flexible to get the job done, work together on solutions that fit our needs and remove any road blocks. I highly recommend them as a partner/vendor.
Understand your own issues and needs and desired future state as much as possible.
Easy to configure.
Integration with MS project server can use some improvements and some configuration interface. Could come with more built-in reporting functions.
More performance test.
Laid out scope requirement and cost upfront so everyone on the same page and no surprises down the road.

UMT was able to come in and streamline our PMO processes with only few interviews. They have deployed their tools and taken our Project Server to the next level of maturity - deployed workflows, streamlined our reporting, data collection and helped us out with setting up a better project pipeline, and set up our resource capacity management as well.
It's a long process to go up PMO process maturity, plan on working through several iterations and initiatives - the benefits will be realized.
Speed of delivery, immediate ability to use it for PMO.
I wish they would productize some more of the offering - more fun to start off with a license for a product rather than consulting. Based on the speed of their implementation, I'm sure they've done it many times. Only one thing we had to slow them down with was our change control process, and some documentation.
We learned we still have a long way to go - especially with Project Portfolio management. There are so many other maturity areas we can work on with UMT. It seems that Portfolio Management can be done in a relatively short time with an executive buy-in.
Well integrated into SharePoint/Project and the experience for our users is seamless.
