"We liked Project Professional and BrightWork because we could start using them within a few days. Microsoft Project Professional 2010 and BrightWork are a great solution for us because of their low cost, familiar interface and the fact that they give us a smooth path to Microsoft Project Server."
Erwin Fiebig, Project Management Office, Carozzi
"When we reach our targeted project completion goals, we expect to reduce overtime costs by at least $360,000 a year and move faster in our markets."
Adolfo Salvatierra, Chief Information Officer, Carozzi
The company’s IT staff manages about 60 projects across three countries at any given time but lacked a standard project management methodology and tool. Spreadsheets just weren’t sufficient to keep track of a growing number of increasingly complex projects. Project managers had a tough time keeping their team members and business stakeholders up-to-date. They spent hours in meetings on the phone, and sending email messages to request and relay information. The average project finished 40 percent over budget, costing Carozzi U.S. $300,000 annually in project manager overtime.
To standardize its project management methodology and tools, Chilean food company Carozzi deployed Microsoft Project Professional 2010, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, and the BrightWork project management application. Project managers have become productive on the solution within 30 days and are completing projects 25 percent faster. They can give all stakeholders instant insight into project health and are able to handle increasingly complex projects with less risk.
