At Berlitz, the search for a suitable project management software was prompted by the introduction of a new company-wide enterprise resource planning system. The multitude and complexity of the sub-projects within this project led the project team to look for a practical software support.
In the search for a project software that could optimally support the project team, various tools were tested and InLoox PM for Outlook quickly emerged as the system of choice. Florian Daniel, Director Information Technology Europe at Berlitz, summarizes: "Microsoft Outlook was already in use throughout the company and is the daily working tool in the project team. The seamless integration of InLoox PM with Outlook convinced us." In addition, they did not want to burden their colleagues from the IT department with too many different software solutions for administration, so InLoox PM also appealed due to its low system requirements and uncomplicated installation.
Since the start of the implementation phase in November 2012, the project management software InLoox PM has already been successfully implemented in the project management area. Berlitz took the software implementation as an opportunity to standardize internal processes and task management in the team and to adapt them to working with the new software. In addition, internal training is carried out so that the tasks of the project team can be optimally mapped in the software.
The first positive effects of the new system are already noticeable: InLoox PM facilitates project management and provides project managers with a real-time overview of project scheduling, employee workload and pending tasks. This is where InLoox PM shows its advantage as all project management tasks are directly merged in Microsoft Outlook.
The first interim conclusion of Florian Daniel is positive: "The software means a very big added value for our project management team, because beyond the pure project planning, many additional features such as the resource overview are available. Furthermore, it is noticeable through regular updates that it is permanently being further developed. We also appreciate the close and regular contact with the InLoox team, which responds extremely quickly to inquiries and requests on our part. This is very positively noticeable."
In a next step, the use of InLoox PM will be extended to the entire IT team of Berlitz Deutschland GmbH.
