Client Story: Honeywell Building Solutions

Honeywell Building Solutions is part of Honeywell, a Fortune 100 technology company that delivers industry-specific solutions that include aerospace products and services, control technologies for buildings and industry, and performance materials globally.

Their technologies help aircraft, buildings, manufacturing plants, supply chains and workers become more connected to make the world smarter, safer and more sustainable.

“We didn’t have good visibility of what was going on with our projects, there was no standard, therefore early warnings were not being seen. We went looking for a solution that offered excellent user experience, that could be modified to suit our processes from a partner who would work closely with us and guide us on best practice. We found that in Cora. Cora PPM gives us a single version of the truth. We’ve got 51 countries in which we work, with about 10,000-12,000 people in our part of Honeywell. We have in the region of 40,000 live projects every day. Cora PPM gives insight into all those projects. Now all this work gets done on one platform, globally, for the first time ever, with the same methodology, with the same warnings, inputs and validations, giving us a coherent, robust forecast… certainly a contributor to the profitability of our projects.”
