Project Management Software Project Insight Supports Hotel Operator Kempinski

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - Project management software provider, Project Insight, announces its selection by Kempinski Hotels, the international luxury five-star hotel operator. Project Insight was tapped to keep their global project teams connected and to increase efficiency when executing projects.

CHALLENGES
Kempinski Hotel's Senior Vice President of Information Technology (IT), Jeremy Ward, directs the IT initiatives for the company in four regions worldwide. With team members at several locations, the IT team needed a centralized, company-wide view of the project statuses to keep everyone on the same page. Ward was relying on manual reporting from regional IT managers to keep track of projects. Before Project Insight, there was an issue of version control of schedules as multiple copies of project files circulated.

SOLUTION
The worldwide IT team at Kempinski needed a solution that would:

  • Provide a central place for visibility into all projects, company-wide
  • Eliminate project schedule version control issues
  • Manage task dependencies better
  • Automate many of the manual tasks involved in project management

RESULTS
Project Insight acts as a "one-stop shop" for project management, budgeting and time tracking. The project management software has been easily implemented company-wide and has greatly improved their project review process. Another benefit has been the smooth handling of project dependencies. Sebastien Mariette, General Manager of Kempinski Hotel Huizhou, a 340 room hotel due to open in 2011, explains, "Our opening date changed a couple of times over the last few months and with Project Insight it has been very easy to update the entire critical path, respecting the dependencies between tasks."
