    Problems

    ICP Implementation

    The priority was to properly train nearly one hundred employees – software users. A dedicated training was held at the client’s site. Thanks to the training and the highly user-friendly nature of the software, the dedicated users were ready to work with IC Project starting from the next day.

    Benefits
    • thanks to task and project management in the system, it is possible to verify all overlapping processes on a regular basis and in one place
    • after the software was deployed, communication in the company improved a lot – the employees communicate with each other via ICP and the notification system reminds of all entrusted tasks and their deadlines
    • the division of projects into stages in the system is reliable, it virtually eliminates the risk of repeating a stage: as a result, everything is carried out in the set periods of time
    • what makes the work of the management more convenient are Gantt charts in which you can see all projects in a time schedule, which virtually eliminates the risk of getting lost in the projects and their deadlines

    “We wanted to deliver simple and uncomplicated deployments that are not very time-consuming. As an ‘agile’ organisation, Marcopol has to react quickly to the changing needs of our Customers. This is why the user-friendliness of the software was a key factor for us, which made us implement ICP immediately. It is a system which surely has made our work easier and more organised, which translated into higher effectiveness of the projects run in the company. For us, it means even better service for our Customers.”

  • 2
    Problems
    • work was disorganised, dividing the project into parts to be performed by various persons over large time spans was a big issue
    • in case of bigger projects, a lot of information would often be irrecoverably lost
    • all ideas regarding projects were collected at occasional meetings; they were not, however, noted down in a single place and, thus, their execution was difficult
    • there was no clear breakdown of tasks into specific stages which entailed extended lead times for the particular tasks and, in consequence, entire projects

    ICP Implementation

    Projekt-Technika has had the full system package implemented. All employees completed a station training in IC Project functionalities and operation. Thanks to the dedicated training session, the company’s decision-makers invested in the annual subscription from the get-go.

  • 4
    Benefits
    • the program streamlines teamwork – projects can be implemented in fragments by several different persons and all information necessary for the given group of employees is ordered in one place,
    • all important information is collected in the system, making everything ordered and traceable
    • the program facilitates communication among employees, without leaving the workstation
    • important project arrangements – concepts, ideas, work progress information – can be added, deleted and modified and all employees are updated on such changes on a current basis
    • great preview for larger projects with easy viewing of the particular tasks, making the team meet the timeframes set for the given project easier

    “IC Project is a system we’ve been using for a longer time now. In terms of work organisation, it is of great value for us – we can keep all information in one place. I can assign tasks to employees without any issues and they know what they have to do and in what timeframes.”

    Problems

    • lack of careful planning of the financial aspect of investments, which resulted in sloppy estimations and financial losses for the enterprise
    • lack of financial comparison between investments, which resulted in difficulty finding stages where savings could be sought in future investments
    • lead time extended due to the lack of specific organisation of work

    ICP Implementation

    We deployed all basic modules available in IC Project in Bongo Invest. Moreover, we launched Gantt charts and a cost module, which offer a great overview for finance and time planning of projects. At the testing stage of our tool, we conducted an hourly preliminary online training. After two weeks we organised an all-day dedicated training for all employees at the client’s site – the entire enterprise was trained quickly and thoroughly, thanks to which the pending projects and investments did not suffer when the organisation of work was being changed.

    • access to all reports has given us a lot of leeway in terms of communication with investors

    • major problem with communication and delegation of tasks between production departments
    • extended lead time as a result of missing deadlines for individual tasks
    • lack of proper control over dealers’ meetings and their field work
  • 3
    ICP Implementation

    The full IC Project package was deployed at Great Gastro: task and project management, calendar, full reporting and the like. Redundant modules were specifically excluded so that the programme was even more transparent to all employees. The deployment was instantaneous – after preliminary programme testing, a comprehensive training was held at the client’s site and all employees were trained efficiently and in depth. The production did not stop even for a minute – it was without doubt a seamless transition to a different working model.

    Problems

    The company tried multiple tools for communication with the Client for 4 years. It usually ended with e-mail correspondence and sending files, which was never fully satisfying and failed to solve certain issues. Cooperation with international brands showed that communication can look different. It is necessary to require greater control over the tasks entrusted for performance from all engaged persons to be able to meet deadlines and control the tasks at each stage of their implementation regardless of the number of persons assigned to the project and diversity of assigned tasks.

    • communication issues – several thousand e-mails in inboxes
    • lost orders and small projects
    • no control over tasks carried out by employees
    • extended time of task performance
    • hindered planning and order pricing
  • 3
    ICP Implementation

    The following available ICP modules were implemented for Idealia: Projects, CRM, Calendars, Communication, Reports. Additionally, some modules were adjusted to the needs of the company and its employees. The implementation process was almost instantaneous. The staff training took 1 day.
    The feature allowing to add Client’s personnel to the project allowed to resign from progress meetings and on-going reporting as the Client can check the task status on a real-time basis.

  • 4
    Benefits
    • the number of e-mails sent among the employees has dropped by 90%
    • the time spent on searching for information regarding the projects and tasks has been significantly reduced
    • the project profitability has improved by 9%
    • the time devoted to task reporting has been almost eliminated
