The Results Ignis’ new EPM solution allows for improved collaboration and governance. Staff can access the information they need to perform their jobs in centralised project workspaces. This increased visibility helps them to manage tasks and assign resources to key projects. The company’s reporting has also become more efficient and consistent.
