The Company: Kantonsspital Aarau (KSA Group) is a national healthcare center with top-class medical infrastructure for all requirements from primary healthcare to highly specialized medicine. It is the largest hospital in the canton of Aargau and, along with the university hospitals, one of the largest in Switzerland as a whole. The Department of Internal Medicine has the status of a university clinic. At KSA, prospective specialists have the option to train for numerous specialist titles.
The Challenge: The IT department of the KSA needed a powerful new tool for project, portfolio and demand management. The plan is that other KSA departments can also manage their projects with the TPG ProjectPowerPack. There is a heterogeneous landscape of different IT systems in the different departments of the KSA. To standardize digital in-house collaboration, Microsoft Teams had already been rolled out on the cloud-based Microsoft 365 Platform.
The Solution: With TPG ProjectPowerPack based on the Microsoft 365 Power Platform, KSA has opted for innovative technology. The TPG proprietary development integrates Microsoft Project for the Web with Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI. It transforms these components into a modular, versatile project portfolio management system. It is also possible to integrate TPG ProjectPowerPack with Microsoft 365 standards. For example, it offers access to the project management system directly from Microsoft Teams.
The Benefits: Kantonsspital Aarau received a quickly operational out-of-the-box solution which can be customized flexibly to meet the specific needs of the hospital. The highly advanced technology supports the KSA’s future-oriented program for digital transformation. A browser-based solution, the new PPT tool requires little training. Last but not least, TPG ProjectPowerPack provides considerable cost advantages compared to traditional solutions based on Microsoft Project Online / Project Server.
“The platform provides good options for evaluating the data. It is important to us to be able to evaluate the data ourselves and thus keep it under control.”
