From Excel to smart PPM – A Journey

Willmott Dixon is one of the UK’s best known brands in the built environment. Its operations extend through Capital Works, Construction, Regeneration and Support
Services across the private and public sectors.

During 2011 it became clear that they needed something far more sophisticated than  Excel to keep track of this portfolio of projects, and Gordon started looking for a PPM tool
that provided simplicity of use, data transparency, health checks and resource capacity planning at the right price.

After meeting Bestoutcome at Project Challenge he evaluated and subsequently implemented their project portfolio management solution (PM3) because it offered an elegant, easy to manage and cost-effective solution that not only gave him all that he wanted, but much more besides.

Gordon explains how Willmott Dixon moved from Excel to PM3 and describes the benefits this brought, including major improvements in senior management reporting.
