Temera is a specialized IoT and IT service company that caters to the fashion industry, specifically to the luxury segment, providing advanced tracking solutions via their suite of hardware, software and service solutions.
As the company grew, so did the need for specialized tools for project management with an ever growing international customer base and more and more accounts being managed and projects on these being executed. They were looking to find solutions to connect and integrate the project management part with the cost management and cost controlling part.
Their existing solutions were not able to solve the challenges. Their ERP solutions (like SAP) were not suited because they only have an accounting-centric view of the projects and don’t have strong project management features (and the licenses are very expensive). Their product-related project management tools (like JIRA) did not include any cost and account-based management, and are usually not suited for waterfall projects.
Temera’s team was also looking to decouple the accounting-centric view from the project management one, in order to dynamically work on internal pricings, timing, staffing, ecc compared to what is accounted for and billed for on the client-side.
“We were looking for a solution that could meet the challenges of project planning, budget management, and cost control. Despite the numerous options on the market, including well-known tools like Wrike, Asana, JIRA, and the extensive Atlassian ecosystem, none of them could provide what we needed. Until we finally found the essential solution with Twproject!”
With Twproject we can manage and have control over all our projects including their budgeted costs vs. realized final costs
- Real-time account-based project management: Temera needed to handle multiple projects on a waterfall basis with some hardware and product-related components. Twproject was the central piece to keep both project and cost-related information in place in real-time.
- Decoupling Internal project management and Client-facing systems: Twproject wants to keep internal project management and cost controlling decoupled from the client-facing reporting and accounting systems.
- Ongoing improvements: As Twproject releases new features, Temera benefits instantly as they have no need for bespoke customizations.
- Complete account-based project management
- Streamlined internal project management
- Improved budget and cost control
Complete account-based project management
Since implementing Twproject, Temera benefitted from having a fully transparent account-based project management and reduced its overhead by 25%.
“We were able to manage all our account-based projects in one place, having full control over which resources are being deployed, over the timelines, and ultimately over single PM’s performances over time. This provided us a simple but powerful way to navigate through an increasing number of projects with increasing layers of complexity.”
Streamlined internal project management
Temera benefitted from a streamlining of their growing PMO, which grew to have 15+ project managers on different seniority levels, and who have been managing dozens of projects simultaneously.
“Twproject made it easier to manage, control, and report on dozens of projects of our 15+ PMs on a monthly and quarterly basis. It streamlined our PMO and saved us great admin and internal project control resources that we now can invest on client-facing activities.”
Improved budget and cost control
By streamlining internal project management via Twproject, Temera was able to implement a very strong and effective cost control on the resources directly involved in account-based projects, and to include and represent costs and resources from other services and systems in the same tool.
“Twproject was our number 1 choice as a project management tool, because it provided an excellent combination between the pure project management and the budget and cost control view. None of the other tools were able to solve this in such a way like Twproject does it”
The bottom line
Since implementing Twproject, Temera has been able to streamline their project management approach and processes, saving them valuable resources that could be reinvested in their client-facing operations.
It’s astonishing how Twproject stayed competitive in such a dynamic market, winning our trust over other globally recognized brands and solutions providers.
At Temera we will keep on trusting Twproject as we grow and benefit more and more from their ongoing product improvements and developments
