Munich, April 25th 2013 – The international training provider Berlitz chose InLoox PM for project management and is the 2,500th customer of InLoox. The key factor was InLoox PM’s full Outlook integration, which makes the software self-explanatory and intuitive to use. More than 35,000 users in over 2,500 companies like AVIS, US Airways, Pentax and Siemens successfully work with InLoox’ project management solutions. InLoox products are currently used in more than 40 countries on five continents.
As of recently, Berlitz is one of InLoox’ valued customers. Berlitz, one of the leading providers of language trainings, management and intercultural trainings worldwide, also serves as a service provider for 23 subsidiaries across Europe.
Berlitz decided to look for a suitable project management software that would support them in implementing a company-wide enterprise planning resource system. The multitude and complexity of the sub-projects within the overall project, initiated the search for a practical software.
Outlook integration as the key factor
When looking for a project software that would provide optimal support to the project team, they tested several tools. InLoox PM soon turned out to be the system of choice. Florian Daniel, Director Technology Europe at Berlitz, summarizes: “Microsoft Outlook is used all throughout the company and is the tool that the project team uses most every day. The software’s seamless integration into Microsoft Outlook absolutely convinced us to choose InLoox PM.”
Besides, the project team didn’t want to burden their IT-department with having to do maintenance of another software solution. That said, InLoox PM was also the most viable solution due to its few system requirements and the simple installation.
InLoox PM project management software has been successfully implemented in the project management area ever since its introduction in November 2012. Berlitz used the implementation of the new software to standardize internal processes and task management within the project team and adjusted them to the use of the new software. Berlitz organized internal trainings to ensure that the software would support the project team the best way possible.
A better overview in project management
The first positive effects of the new system are already noticeable: InLoox PM makes project management easier and provides the project manager with real-time information on project time planning, resource allocation and upcoming tasks. InLoox PM users clearly benefit from the fact that it combines all project-related tasks directly in Microsoft Outlook.
Florian Daniel draws a positive interim conclusion: “The software offers great added value for our project team because it goes far beyond project planning only and features functions such as the resource overview. Moreover, the regular updates tell us that the software is being continuously enhanced. We also appreciate the close and regular contact with the InLoox team. They are extremely fast at responding to our inquiries and recommendations. We are very impressed with that.”
In a second step, Berlitz Germany is planning to use InLoox PM across its entire IT-team.
InLoox develops project management software solutions making business processes easier and faster. The product portfolio currently includes three product lines: InLoox PM for Outlook, the intuitive project management software that seamlessly integrates into Microsoft Outlook. InLoox PM Web App, a browser-based online project software solution and InLoox now!, a turnkey project platform in the Cloud. Over 2,500 companies across all industries and 35,000 users on five continents in more than 40 countries worldwide already use InLoox products. The InLoox customer base includes more than 20% of the companies listed on the German Stock Exchange Index (DAX) as well as global players such as AVIS, German Red Cross, Hitachi, Novartis, Pentax Europe, SEAT, Siemens, US Airways and many more. InLoox was founded in 1999 and has its headquarters in Munich.
