Case Study: Mainbit

As an IT solution provider, Mainbit was having difficulty sustaining the high quality deliverables that were propelling them through a significant growth period. They needed to have a more collaborative work environment and a centralized reporting/administration function to manage the workflow. Advisicon recommended an EPM solution implementing MSPS 2007® in addition to supporting the technology with education and creating a PMO. Mainbit has been able to successfully sustain its growth and become more efficient in controlling projects and allocating resources through sustained use of the EPM format.

Business Situation

Mainbit was positioned for growth, but was not positioned to coordinate the workload of that growth for the organization in an efficient and effective method. The existing system was cumbersome, lacked support within the company and resulted in repetition of work by multiple users. The company needed a way to collaborate the efforts of the resources and be able to generate meaningful reports providing visibility into the organization. Additionally, they did not have:

  • Standardization in processes and procedures for data collection
  • An adopted methodology for project management
  • A functional PMO to direct and administer activity
  • A project management tool that could address needs and requirements

To ensure the success of the organization, Mainbit would need to have better project portfolio visibility and a technology that would be embraced and adopted by the resources.
