Project Insight Project Management Software Chosen by ESBG Design

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 28, 2011) - Project Insight, project management software provider, has been chosen by ESBG Design for its project management needs. Owned by David and Jeff Borkowski, brothers of Rolex Series sports car driver, Mike Borkowski, ESBG Design is one of the world's leading motorsports livery specialists. David Borkowski, the founder and creative director, creates designs that have a unique ability to capture the essence of a brand within the radical marketing environment that is motorsports.

CHALLENGES
ESBG Design is a boutique firm with a big reach and a global reputation. They work with several different clients in a variety of industries, but they are known for specializing in designing livery programs for race teams and sponsors across the world. During their busy season, the team at ESBG is working on anywhere from seven to 15 ongoing projects; some include sub-projects too.

The two partners are separated by several states and became overwhelmed managing projects strictly via email. They began searching for a software solution that would accommodate what they considered to be basic and fundamental features such as project tracking, tracking time against tasks and most importantly, resource allocation. With limited resources and new requests coming in, it is critical to be able to allocate resources' time accurately.

SOLUTION
Project Insight was able to provide ESBG with the basic features they wanted and still fit their independent freelancer type business. After trying many platforms on a trial basis and working with another solution for a couple years, ESBG's process matured and the former solution fell short in specific areas. The history of searching for a solution left ESBG knowing what worked for them and Project Insight was able to fulfill those requirements including:

  • A centralized, company-wide view of projects
  • Enables true resource allocation for their small, task oriented team
  • Fully integrated with QuickBooks

RESULTS
Well into their implementation, ESBG Design has increased productivity with the support of Project Insight. All projects are now visible in a unified view and the QuickBooks integration has provided them with a higher degree of automation in billing. It terms of resource allocation, "I can fully leverage our capabilities… Now we have a very clear picture of what our sweet spot is, and we can basically ride that sweet spot in terms of the project work that we're doing. Project Insight was really the first program we had that provided such a clear picture of resources'workloads," said Jeff Borkowski.
