Saving time through template
They are also beginning to use templates for new projects to save time on similar tasks, for example by creating a template out from Planning & Tracking. IMI has taken a train-the-trainer approach to help emphasise where the businesses have seen the most successes and where Projectplace can add the most value.
"With the success seen in Group Supply Chain, IMI is actively promoting Projectplace in other disciplines, such as mergers and acquisitions, and product development, where similar cross-divisional, globally displaced people work as teams." concludes Ian.
Projectplace tools used
The tools IMI use the most, in order of importance, are: Planning & Tracking, Document Archive and associated functionality, Public Web Pages and Meeting Management.
