With a vast workforce of 36,000 employees strategically operating in 40 countries, their extensive efforts result in the production of an impressive array of 13,000 products.

“Our company is very aggressive with goals and cost reduction, the only way to reach those goals or objectives is through projects, we didn’t have a standard way to manage or deal with projects or to execute them, so definitely Cora PPM has been able to standardize that for us, we have a lot of products to deal with, quality systems, new technologies, new efficiencies, all of these are driven by projects and Cora has helped us to achieve this. We have specific timelines, deliverables, stakeholder communications, risks, and mitigations, all of these tasks need to be delivered and managed, Cora has helped us and supported us to be successful. Cora helps us to standardize and speak in the same language, for example during management reviews, we use Cora to present results or understand the risk we are facing, we have different departments in the company, if all departments are using the same tool, it’s easier to have the same communication and that’s how Cora has helped us to standardize our daily work.”
