JEMA's Quick Implementation of Genius Project Leads to Improved Product Development, Document Management and Quality Compliance
The CHALLENGE - Document Management and Resource Planning
In their continuous effort to position themselves as an international player in the field of high performance DC power supplies, JEMA is committed to providing their experienced team of engineers with the resources needed to improve their systems, develop new products and expand their range of services.
With this in mind, JEMA recognized the need for a system that would help them deliver the standard documents required by quality governance, at each phase of their projects. In order to support compliance, they would need a powerful document management system.
Further, since their business is heavily focused on new product development projects, they would require a complete solution that would assist them in high level project management, resource planning, and collaboration, including assigning access rights and setting up workflows.
JEMA also needed a solution that could be implemented quickly and effectively.
The SOLUTION - Optimized Project and Document Management
JEMA now uses Genius Project daily for central management of their projects and project documents. The system has allowed them to account for the time being spent on product development projects vs service projects. It has also allowed the company to get a solid handle on project planning, improve their product development process and provide in-depth reports to stakeholders and project managers.
The combination of the on-premise solution with the mobile app is exactly what JEMA needed to comply with their high security standards, while collaborating with remote workers in their multinational offices as they travel to and from office locations.
Key features used: workflow, document management, file sharing, document control list, collaboration, document archiving, project templates, mobility, Gantt charts, resource planning, time tracking, KPIs and reporting.
The RESULTS - Quick Implementation and Accurate Quality Audit
As new Genius Project users, JEMA is currently transferring all the documents concerning their recurring products and are deep into the implementation of the solution with much satisfaction. They also plan to extend the use of the product with their suppliers, partners and customers.
“I would like to point out that I am personally very satisfied with both the platform and the consulting support from MM Ribordy and Rogers, and your team. The introduction of Genius has allowed us to make no faults in our latest external quality audit. The system has allowed me to accurately plan and report on our projects. Having already been involved in the introduction of new platforms and software, I was positively surprised by the speed and ease of adoption for our internal team.”
Genius Project continues to help JEMA through the implementation and system adoption process. The result is centralized document management, smoother workflows, optimized resource planning and accurate reporting.
