See how tourism leader Thomas Cook turns to cloud-based PMO solution for strategy-led forecasting and PM

As a professional services provider in the tourism industry, Thomas Cook projects are varied, typically lasting 6-18 months. After a major transformation programme there existed a variety of independent tools and local data repositories that were used to execute and report projects in different areas of the company.Fundamentally the companies’ ability to be able to monitor and exert control over project investment, execution and value realisation was being hampered by the absence of a consolidated enterprise-wide PPM tool.

This case study highlights:

  • The business challenge of vetting over 200 PM vendors to find a suitable centralised, flexible cloud-based solution to help standardise processes and speed up access to project information
  • The need to educate portfolio managers and stakeholders across many departments to gain consensus
  • How having a tool that can track forecasting and budgets before and during projects can lead to better decision making and improve reporting speed by 50%
  • How achieving real-time project management to manage dependencies across projects can help you understand the interplay of projects across time and across teams.
