Projects were being managed using a variety of tools including Microsoft Project, Excel and Word. This resulted in project information being maintained in different locations making it difficult to have a clear view of individual projects and, even more so, programs of multiple projects.
Generating reports and managing resources were key issues for Servier as the information had to be pulled from many different sources taking significant time and effort.
To summarise, Servier's key requirements for a project and program management solution were:
Introducing the Cora solution has allowed Servier Industries to manage projects from concept, approval and implementation to closeout in a simple and efficient way. This has resulted in significant time savings, particularly when generating reports and project updates.
Cora has allowed the team to predict future resource requirements and identify resource shortages, allowing adequate resources to be put in place for key projects. This means that projects are more likely to be delivered on time and on budget.
Servier now have a single view of all projects that are happening across all of the departments. It has allowed the project team to easily prioritize projects that will bring the greatest benefits to the organization.
Generating reports for the management team has been made simpler, allowing instant access to the latest project information. This has allowed Servier to concentrate on delivering projects rather than administration and report production.
"Cora has given us control over our projects. We now have a clear view of what we are trying to achieve and how we are progressing"
