Intechnic has been using a project management system for as long as we have been in business, but we have always used third party software. Recently, however, we decided to build a custom solution that would work exactly how we need it to work and that would be in line with all of our techniques and methodologies. As far as I can tell, this was probably one of the most profitable internal projects that we have undertaken. By profitable, I mean that it has significantly reduced some of the more tedious administrative and project management costs involved with any project by automating many of the processes and providing more accurate statistics. This, of course, translates into cheaper cost of development, our customers being charged less, and ultimately Intechnic being more competitive as a business. I was about to say that this is crucial in the current state of the economy, but it’s really just as important when everyone is doing well.
This is yet another example of how a custom business automation system can help a business save money. It makes sense that the company that builds business automation systems created one for itself as well.
