Midwest retailer Meijer leverages Moovila’s project management platform for on-time, on-budget cross-company technology implementation
CHARLESTON, S.C., Oct. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest retail leader Meijer joined forces with Moovila, a leading software vendor in autonomous work and project management, to successfully implement a major cross-company initiative and human resources (HR)-based technology initiative.
Adopted in Meijer’s early stages of the enterprise-wide Workday Implementation project, Moovila’s award-winning project management platform delivered improved accountability, process consistency, risk mitigation and better resource allocation – all contributing to an on-time, on-budget rollout of the new technology.
The project encompassed every department within Meijer and involved employees, external consultants and vendors. The retailer selected Moovila, named as one of CIOReview’s 2018 10 Most Promising Collaboration Solution Providers, for its breakthrough technology and three-pronged approach to collaboration in work and project management:
Connectivity – connecting all key stakeholders in a secure environment
Accountability – clarifying who is responsible for what, and by when
Predictability – forecasting the probability of on-time completion, and continuously tracking, managing and mitigating project risks
Based on the premise that each collaborative project has its own “critical path” – the sequence of dependent tasks that defines the shortest time for project completion – Moovila’s proprietary Critical Path Engine provides an in-depth analysis of these functions and predicts areas that could potentially derail a project. In essence, Moovila creates a collaborative environment where risks are identified and headed off before they cause delays, individuals understand and commit to their roles, and project status is available at a glance.
“I’m excited that Meijer has realized the benefits of our ground-breaking technology,” added Mike Psenka, President and CEO of Moovila. “Collaboration today requires more than simple communication. It requires tackling the tough critical-path, capacity and accountability challenges that our platform simplifies. We look forward to our continued partnership with Meijer as they embark on their own digital transformation around work management. We see Moovila’s autonomous work and project management platform playing a key role in that evolution.”
