Case Studies

The Hertz Corporation is a large American car rental company that provides high-quality service to customer segments all over the world. To better manage new construction and maintenance of rental car locations worldwide, they needed to improve key processes, including capital expenditure approvals for new location construction and ongoing maintenance projects. However, documents, requests, statuses, and other related information are inside Excel files and email chains scattered across the organization.

With the help of CMW Tracker, the company developed a workflow that streamlines CapEx approval processes across multiple company divisions. The single workflow also simplifies internal collaboration among employees. The application sends CapEx requests and ensures proper routing according to budget and volume. Hertz’s CMW Tracker also connects users to enterprise data and workflows, and also supports social collaboration. Within the first two months, the company saw tangible gains and increased transparency of workflows.

Mark Calabro is the owner of a vinyl record pressing company in San Francisco that assists artists, labels, and businesses in releasing vinyl, CD, and DVD. The company strives to offer the best quality of products and services, but managing production has become a challenge. Mark needed a solution that can assign workflows to individuals based on the company’s product life cycle.

The company now uses CMW Tracker for both its simple daily operations as well as handling complex vendor management and product development life cycles. CMW Tracker’s workflow engine automatically generates a sequence of tasks to execute the needed processes. It assigns tasks to the right person after another person completes a previous workflow step. Now, Mark can visually design, manage, and modify complex processes on the fly. He also has real-time visibility or progress and workloads, automated process execution, and insights from real-time dashboards and lists.
