NFI Selects Project Management Software Project Insight

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2011) - Project Insight, project management software provider, announces its selection by NFI to help support the company's growth and manage projects more efficiently. NFI is a fully integrated supply chain solutions provider that offers logistics, distribution and supply chain management services across the U.S.

CHALLENGES
NFI's information technology (IT) department is responsible for a wide variety of projects for external customers, supporting warehouse or transportation services. Prior to Project Insight they relied on a combination of spreadsheets and homegrown databases. With 20 project managers handling 80 projects at a time on average, NFI needed a way to standardize project management and gain visibility into resource allocation, status and profitability of projects.

SOLUTION
The project managers and IT team at NFI needed a project management solution that would:

  • Provide a variety of views into active projects
  • Give visibility of project status to people in different roles in the company
  • Enable resource allocation
  • Simplify time tracking

"We chose Project Insight for its 'look and feel.' It is very easy to use, clean and flexible. We're finding that the flexibility underneath the software allows us to adapt the solution to our business process," said NFI's CIO, Scott Benton.

RESULTS
Project Insight provides NFI with an easy way to report on all project information. The software ensures that project data is centralized, with more effective project prioritization, resource allocation and executive reports. Team members also have access to easier time tracking. This solution has facilitated a better project management methodology for NFI's IT team. NFI is pleased with the responsiveness of the team at Project Insight and the flexibility of the software.
