Project-driven companies have a major challenge to monitor their projects from different perspectives: on an aggregated level; per business unit; per project manager; per type; et cetera. Having insight into the expected utilization of human resources, the forecast of required materials or machines, and associated financial rolling forecast per project only adds to the complexity. Jedox extracts data from ERP systems related to HR, projects, materials and sales to create intelligence. At the same time the Jedox system offers project managers and business controllers the ability to submit specific rolling forecasts per project and associated comments to inform the rest of the organization on what is going to happen. The sharing of expectations related to HR, risks, finances, materials, machines, sales, duration and quality is done using workflow.
Benefits of the partner solution for the customer

By using Celcus portfolio Management powered by Jedox all historic information is centralized including a structural proces that enables the input of forecasts related to all projects.
