Centralized project data improves portfolio steering
Dolphin Integration, founded in 1985, is a global leader in the development of silicon IPs and integrated circuit design services. Their offer ranges from specialty offerings for consumer devices to the general-purpose business of Electronic Design Automation (EDA). An ecological consciousness means they focus on facilitating energy-efficient advanced power management techniques.
With 160 employees in offices in France, Canada and Israel; lack of a centralised project management solution meant teams were disconnected and resource and workload data were dispersed. With poor visibility resulting in poor planning and resource allocation, Dolphin Integration’s management needed a solution to allow them to monitor the lifecycle of all projects and team workloads for more efficient project execution.
Centralised data for monitoring healthy projects
A centralised system means all project documentation from objectives to progress reports are collected and processed in a single repository. With Genius Project, Dolphin Integration has been able to standardize project methods for improved project data quality and progress monitoring.
Resource allocation made easy
Gained visibility on team workloads together with an integrated simulator for resource management result in an optimal use of resources across projects and teams. Easy access to and the automated exporting of workload data mean leaders have the necessary information to better manage resource allocation.
Visibility for responsive planning
The ability for all team members, as well as financial and administrative teams and stakeholders, to monitor project progress results in better visibility of deliverables and more realistic forecasting of dates and expenses. Real-time views on progress allows Dolphin management to be more responsive and prepared.
