Lack of a centralized solution for finances and reporting
Lack of visibility into resources
The most important thing for Variass was the ability to track the status of its projects and see the overall project overview to make strategic decisions based on relevant and up-to-date information.
Since the company was already using its own solutions from financial management, an individual approach was required. It was important to integrate Easy Projects with the existing IT environment. The team also finds it useful to apply templates for project structures, especially for ISO13485/MDR projects.
With the EP advanced resource management functionality, the Variass team now can plan hours booking efficiently taking into account the team's current workload.
Simple reporting has helped the company better understand their projects’ health and the financial side of their business. Variass can also demonstrate the progress of their work to their clients more clearly.
The EP convenient tracking solutions helped to reduce time spent on actual time logging, thus freeing up engineers' time for their key responsibilities and other more important and result-oriented tasks.
Thanks to a free guest portal, the company’s clients are now able to see the project progress, leave feedback and, in general, participate in the entire project development process.
When Variass felt the need for a more user-friendly and advanced tool for tracking projects and time, the manager selected a long list of 10 project management systems. Easy Projects ended up being the only solution to meet all of the company’s key needs.
With the adoption of Easy Projects, the speed of the project delivery and the team’s efficiency increased significantly. First, engineers need 60% less time spent on tracking working hours. The API solutions from Easy Projects are powerful and help connect to other data sources. Both time and project tracking has become convenient for employees. Finally, the company gained full visibility and transparency into its processes and operations and provided its customers with detailed reports and accurate project updates in real-time.
“What we searched for was to professionalize the project management of the development process, and therefore we selected Easy Projects as the best tool in the market that fits our needs. Based on that, we can easier and better manage our product development.”
