The Company: Hörmann Logistik GmbH realizes tailormade intralogistics system solutions for many different industries. The company designs high-bay warehouses and small-parts warehouses ensuring productivity and cost-effectiveness. Hörmann Logistik takes full responsibility not only for the realization of complex new plants, but also for the modernization of existing plants during ongoing operations.
The Challenge: Hitherto, project management had been decentrally organized and time-consuming. Unlike now, a single and comprehensive overview of scheduling and resource planning had been unavailable. Another challenge: the switch to a solution for project management, which was fully integrated from the beginning, was meant to happen within a short period of time. Budget risk was to be kept as low as possible.
The Solution: TPG QuickStart for Microsoft Project Online offered a preconfigured system at a fixed price. It combines generic processes and best practices. Without elaborate adjustments, it creates a professional working environment for enterprise-wide integrated project management. The introduction was completed on schedule in only six months. As a persuasive proof of concept, TPG QuickStart can be the basis for further specifications.
The Benefits: The new solution has provided Hörmann Logistik with a fully operational, integrated enterprise-wide project management system. Users can view and manage schedules and resources easily via the browser. They can rest assured that all data is complete and up-to-date. It is possible to access the key performance indicators for the projects’ development status live. Report creation has become much faster, too.
“Our main aim was to take the first important step quickly and arrive at a working solution within a short period of time.”
Matthis König, Project Management Officer (PMO) Hörmann Logistik GmbH
