Thanks to Digix’s expertise in Project Portfolio Management, today many companies can count on improved project visibility, investment optimization, cost tracking and performance measurement. All these factors contribute to maximising efficiency through effective management of all resources.

This is the case of IMA, the Italian company specialising in the design and production of automatic packaging machines for different types of products in the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, tobacco, tea and coffee sectors. The project, which lasted 6 months, concerned the planning processes in the assembly area which used the same analogue board since the 1970s: traditional inefficiencies linked to the manual solution and the inevitable impact of errors have suggested IMA to accelerate the change by turning to Digix to develop an advanced PPM solution able to guarantee the above benefits combined with a more generic simplification of processes and a reduction in time and costs to access and use information.

After a PPM & Advisory analysis, Digix proposed to adopt a digital platform based on Microsoft technology which implementation significantly improved the daily operations of production lines. The results achieved by the project, for which Digix also managed the entire software selection, customisation, implementation of the solution and management of the adoption process, enabled a much better resource allocation, as well as a clear simplification of the decision-making process and an improvement in budget planning, while advanced monitoring and reporting activities enabled – and still enable – IMA to align resource management with strategic priorities.
