Learn how one global manufacturer modernized their project management solution to improve ease of use and ensure security.
A manufacturer was struggling with limited functionality in their Project Server 2013 instance. The company used the application to track project tasks, progress, and collaboration with other team members. This archaic version of the tool was operating slowly and limited users to only using the application on an outdated version of Office. This prevented the 2013 version of Project Server from communicating with the 2019 version of Office, and prevented users from accessing valuable business data. Additionally, Project Server 2013 was nearing the end of its support lifecycle, which left it vulnerable to security threats that would create additional administrative burdens on their IT team. The manufacturer needed to modernize to a newer version of Project Server so it could integrate with Office 2019, boost security, and improve access.
