PMO and Smartsheet Control Center Case Study-Optimum

Case Study: Machinery Manufacturer automates PMO processes and projects with Smartsheet

A global Machinery and Manufacturing company has engaged Optimum to assist the company in the establishment of their Portfolio and Project Management processes and best practices and to replace their existing, in-house PPM tool with Smartsheet’s Control Center.

Optimum conducted a Process Mapping and PMO Maturity assessment phase, identifying obstacles to workflow streamlining and maximum productivity realization. Optimum then partnered with Smartsheet to implement Control Center, resulting in automated Project Selection, Intake, and Provisioning processes.
