16 “Before we started using Asta Powerproject suite it was difficult to manage all these projects in a cohesive way” “We introduced Asta Powerproject Enterprise to bring to the business the right mix of functionality to fit our goals” “In Asta we can set up a template for projects with a similar structure – it is easy and saves a lot of project manager time. We can now initiate a project much more quickly and efficiently than we could with MS Project” “Asta allows us to start from the beginning and build up accurate perspectives of a project” “The Time Sheet process runs so much better now, like an oiled machine” “Having all time sheet data inside the system gives us an up-to-date picture of exactly where we are against the plan” “Key for us is to efficiently manage the whole portfolio in an integrated fashion. It is the linkage between detailed project plans, project accounts, documentation and timesheets that is most beneficial, something we could not achieve before. We now have a much more holistic approach, which drives up quality for our customers” “Not only does the software help improve quality for our customer, it keeps us compliant with our certification in terms of consistency and best practice” “We now have one accurate version of the truth”

17 © Copyright Asta Development 2013 The Information Systems Services (ISS) department within Lancaster University provides IT systems, services and facilities centrally for the university Campus IT network, , central IT systems, software, PC labs and access to IT facilities at off-campus locations On-going challenge to meet the growing demands placed on ISS. Needed to understanding the demands on teams and individuals To maximise available capacity, ISS decided to introduce a professional project planning and management tool Adopted Asta Powerproject Enterprise to manage resources for service delivery and projects Asta Powerproject Concurrent Licences – serve over 35 users Over 100 Timesheet for Asta Powerproject Asta Case Study – Lancaster University

18 “The software is providing insight into bottlenecks and helping us understand why things sometimes take so long. Our hope is that it will enhance the way the business and IT work together” “ISS needed to be able to deliver new services in response to ever-changing requirements, but with most of our available resource already tied up we needed a way of understanding exactly where priorities were most needed” “It allows us to plan resources and projects with the right amount of task granularity for us and for senior management” “We needed a way of understanding the demands on teams and individuals” “Multi-user access is fundamental to our business, the very nature of what we do is reliant on a shared capability to plan, manage, deliver and report, otherwise we would have unconnected plans.” “We have the flexibility to allow the operative autonomy in managing their day-to-day tasks, while still giving us a clear indication of the resource commitment to a particular resource or service” “We have a real sense that Asta is keen to support us and make it work for us”
