ICU Medical Benefits From Project Management Software Project Insight

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - Online project management software, Project Insight helps ICU Medical to ensure projects are completed efficiently as the company expands and grows. ICU Medical is a medical device company located in San Clemente, California that is best known for the CLAVE, the first one-piece, closed NeedleFree connector and is currently the number one connector sold worldwide.

CHALLENGES
The program management department at ICU Medical works within the research and development (R&D) division. Research and development manages the development of new products from the concept stage all the way through production. The medical device industry has strict guidelines that must be followed, which includes accurately tracking time on projects. Before, ICU Medical had a cumbersome manual way of tracking project time and resources. With a team of four project managers in California and about 12 engineers in Utah, the team at ICU Medical typically works on a list of approximately 40 projects at any given time. There was no visibility between the various project teams, which led to project redundancy.

SOLUTION
ICU Medical's program management team needed a solution that would:

  • Be web-accessible and easy to learn
  • Provide a central place for visibility into all projects, company-wide
  • Enable time tracking and resource allocation

Project Insight's flexible features have allowed the team at ICU Medical to add their own categories for projects and to generate custom reports. "One of the things we especially like is the ability to customize, to tweak and modify things," Joe Isaac, Manager of Program Management at ICU Medical notes.

RESULTS
Today, ICU Medical utilizes Project Insight's powerful resource allocation reporting to manage resources effectively. The detailed time tracking features have also made it easier to accurately track hours put against each project. Having all projects accessible online has made collaboration among the different teams easier and more productive. Now a long-time customer, ICU Medical with the help of Project Insight, online project management software, has developed a productive working relationship with Project Insight and their developers.
