Innovative Projektmanagement-Software ermöglicht abgestimmtes Arbeiten bei MTU

With cplace, MTU succeeded in modernizing and optimizing its project management throughout the company in record time. Coordinating complex, technologically demanding projects between different teams and departments at all locations in a collaborative manner is a crucial success factor. That’s why the German industry leader opted for the cplace collaboration platform. But that was just the beginning. Since then, many other projects have been launched based on cplace. A competence team decides which of the many other cplace solutions desired by the company should be implemented in the future.

To work efficiently in this environment and keep track of all processes, it was necessary to move away from individual project planning and towards networked schedule management. The overarching schedule is divided into many smaller sub-projects, between which there are many dependencies. Since this could no longer be managed with the existing software solution, the decision was made to switch to new project management software.

"MTU normally doesn't purchase solutions from suppliers that haven't been in the market for very long, but from the very beginning we found cplace compelling because of its innovative adaptability not only with regard to schedule management but in other areas, as well. The fact that collaboration Factory has since evolved steadily and become a fixture in the marketplace has shown that we were right in putting our trust in this company and its expertise."
