Honeywell Building Solutions achieve Global Visibility, Control & Governance

Honeywell Building Solutions

Honeywell Building Solutions is part of Honeywell – the 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.”

The challenges Honeywell faced

Honeywell Building Solutions (HBS) required a solution to support a number of challenges: around consolidating systems, standardizing processes, project deviation, resource/capacity management and financial control.

Cora Capabilities:

Cora brought a level of configurability that allowed the system to match the current project management methodology within the client organization which minimized implications and management associated with change and provided an easy-to-use, intuitive system.

The Benefits:

  • HBS has reduced their systems from 22 to less than 7, all of which directly integrates with Cora PPM
  • Visibility has increased across all projects with specific dashboards and reports displaying key project and financial data, giving the client’s team instant, accurate project status updates
  • Early warning signs are available through a number of compliance indicators which is helping to reduce project/budget deviation
  • By using our centralised system, HBS was able to reduce project deviation from €40 million to €2.5 million within 18 months.
