Project management across the enterprise
cplace as PM platform at TRILUX
TRILUX Group, a leading global supplier of lighting solutions, was looking for a system that would help it manage a growing number of strategic projects running in parallel across the enterprise. Using cplace, TRILUX Group established a comprehensive project management platform that standardizes the management of projects throughout the company while providing individual departments with many customization options.Today, cplace guides TRILUX employees through the entire project lifecycle. This puts the company in a strong position to stand up to new, fast-acting competitors in the Far East.
As more strategic projects run concurrently, the company’s project landscape is getting increasingly complex. To manage its projects efficiently, TRILUX Group needed a transparent system that not only standardizes project management processes but also allows individual teams to make their own choices regarding the way they work.

Up-to-date list of open tasks at the individual employee level
In several initial joint workshops, the cplace and TRILUX teams set-up a trial system to demonstrate the capabilities of the software in a hands-on environment.
The team develops a basic structure, migrates all project master data to the new system, implements the schedules in the form of Gantt charts, and configures an automated reporting app.
Roll-out to other departments
Impressed by the rapid product development capabilities, two additional TRILUX departments in Strategic Business Development and IT decide to adopt the cplace platform, as well.
Common project management software
Today the company operates a common project management platform that uses a uniform set of functionalities and project phase definitions while providing departments with individual customization options.
“We liked being able to map structures and processes exactly the way we imagined them. cplace doesn’t ever force us to submit to what the software wants us to do. Rather, we can freely define designs and functionalities ourselves. […] Considering the large and growing number of projects we must handle at any given tim, this is a true competitive factor that gives us speed and power.”
