Celoxis Case Studies

Michael Milshtein is the director of engineering and development for an American e-learning content development and consulting services company. This completely virtual organization with geographically dispersed team members has very strong project management practices, but their de facto on-premise PM software became incompatible over the years due to limitations in resource planning, project status reporting, decentralized project plans, billing leaks, and spiraling license costs. Celoxis is the best replacement to handle large project plans, providing the company with Gantt chart. It allows them to allocate resources by effort, and give users a robust and customizable reporting tool. Its web-based, on-premise installation also cut license costs by 60%.

Laura Yue is a business analyst for an Australia-based hardware and software solutions provider to the mining and civil infrastructure industries. Work on its several divisions was project-based, but the company did not have a formal project management tool for tracking progress and costs. It was looking for a solution to address information silos, missing project and time tracking, and cost overruns, as well as tracking employee leave and personal time-off. The company chose Celoxis for having a cloud-based solution available through browsers, sophisticated PM features, extensive work tracking, reporting capabilities, ease of deployment, intuitive usability, and a responsive support team.
