Furnace Fabrica Switches to Powerproject for Ease of Use and Better Cash Flow Management
Furnace Fabrica started using Powerproject Enterprise in 2015 when a company-wide strategic objective was put in place to centralise its project planning processes. They wanted to improve their project planning processes to give them much more detail and control over projects. Their strategic aim was to have a centralised project planning system, allowing them to access the status of each project and analyse the corrective actions to take to overcome delays, cost overruns, and so on, and enable all stakeholders to make better, more informed decisions.
“We had been using Oracle Primavera and MS Project, but decided that Powerproject had the edge over them in terms of its user friendliness and its cost and income management functionality, which would enable us to better manage cash flow.”
Furnace Fabrica has highly skilled and experienced teams who organise, schedule and integrate all the individual elements of a project, of which there can be thousands. It follows a taskforce-based approach where a team is assigned to a project and takes full responsibility.
“Powerproject helped us with close tracking, highly detailed planning and procurement mapping. Its flexibility allowed us to accommodate the changes and reschedule accurately and quickly.”
