At our Headquarters, located in Sunrise, FL, there is a staff of approximately 50 professionals supporting this large and rapidly growing network of independently owned franchises. Supporting the company's accelerated growth can only be achieved by the successful completion of the wide array of projects that arise on a frequent basis; projects must be well organized and well communicated. Enter Celoxis.
Celoxis allows our Project Management Office to plan project execution much more effectively. Having a central repository for our projects' information, allows team members to manage project tasks from any web enabled device, share information more efficiently, monitor project progress with less effort and learn from past projects, allowing for better planning in the future.
Celoxis as a tool encourages project team members to properly prioritize their assigned tasks in their personal work schedule. Either they setup a view within Celoxis and monitor their tasks there or they have email notifications sent through Outlook and manage their task deadlines using Outlook reminders. Celoxis is a very agile solution and fits any number of personal work styles.
We are currently managing more concurrent projects, using less paper and consistently hitting our major milestones on schedule!
The Portfolio Management reports allow us to tailor dashboards for each level of management within our organization, so that people see the information that is most important to them. From a PMO perspective, it is easy to hone in on the projects that are falling behind and offer the support those PMs need to keep their projects from falling behind.
