Case Study: Avnet

Business Situation

Avnet’s internal PMO system was cumbersome and lacked the ability to provide resource capacity forecasting, planning and tracking. Without accurate visibility and reporting, Avnet was relying on manual and labor intensive processes to provide reports and status updates to senior management.

Avnet

Avnet is a Fortune 500 company, and the world’s largest franchised distributor of electronic components and subsystems. Avnet has more than 50 centers and locations in over 70 countries.

Solution Delivered

We migrated Avnet from their disparate installation of Project Server to a centralized instance of Project Server while creating custom code to fulfill their unique security requirements. Our team built business intelligence reports that provided real time and accurate information for stakeholders. We also implemented custom workflows and automation within SharePoint for project document and approval notifications with centralized dashboards for workflow process and status.

Benefits

The new PPM system (Project Server) integrated with SharePoint workflows allowed for two full time employee positions to be focused on project delivery vs. project maintenance and tracking. For the first time, the system integrated resource capacity and gap analysis views, reporting and allowed for the intake process to review new projects and work impacts to critical resources before approving the projects.
