Windstream Celebrates Two Successful Years With Project Insight Project Management Software

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - Windstream Hosted Solutions (www.windstream.com), a leading provider of infrastructure-as-a-service, managed hosting, DRaaS and cloud computing services, is celebrating two years of customer success with Project Insight (www.projectinsight.net) project management software.

Headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, Windstream Hosted Solutions is a division of Windstream Communications, a Fortune 500 company. Windstream Communications is the ninth largest residential telephone provider in the country, with service covering more than 8.1 million people in 21 states.

Formed in 2001, Windstream Hosted Solutions includes 14 data centers interconnected by the Windstream network. The company offers cloud and hybrid cloud services through its eight separate public cloud environments.

Before implementing Project Insight project management software in 2013, Windstream's old system was having trouble keeping projects organized. Project information was scattered making it impossible for project teams in different departments and locations to access data, track the project process, or manage resources.

"We had problems with missing information, late orders and miscommunication in general," said Windstream's purchasing agent. "We agreed it was time for a better project management solution."

Management evaluated three project and portfolio management solutions (PPMs). One of their biggest requirements was ease of use. Another of the company's unique requests was a feature that allowed emails to be uploaded or attached to a project in the software. They also required reporting capabilities, dashboards, a centralized repository, the ability to create templates and the ability to link to outside software applications.

"We chose Project Insight because it was the only solution that met all of our criteria," the purchasing agent said. "The software's ability to upload directly from Outlook was a big selling point."

Project Insight provided:

  • The ability to attach emails to tasks, projects and other items in the software
  • A central repository that allowed everyone to access required information for greater efficiency
  • Reporting and tracking capabilities kept projects on schedule
  • Customized templates reduced the amount of time to set up a project by 75%

"Project Insight, our new project management solution, is easier and more efficient by miles and miles," Windstream's purchasing agent said.
