The Planisware Excellence Awards celebrate customer achievements using Planisware solutions. These achievements can range from increased efficiencies or productivity, execution of business strategy, accelerating products to market, improved alignment with business units on a regional or global scale, or more transparency in business developments.

For its 2nd annual awards, Planisware received submissions from its customer base. The submissions were shared with the Customer Jury, a panel of PPM peers composed of existing Planisware customers. The winners were chosen using scoring criteria on how innovative the solution was, how the submission supports the business value achieved, the impact it would have on an organization with the same problem, etc. They were announced during the Awards Ceremony at Exchange22, Planisware’s annual user conference, in Denver, CO May 2022.

The following customers received the Planisware Excellence Award:

Arvinas

Arvinas obtained a single source of truth for planning, reporting, and portfolios for drug development and IT using Planisware Orchestra. The team achieved this by leveraging out-of-the-box functionality in Orchestra, with some customization and reporting outputs. This enabled reporting to support teams, business functions, and portfolio decision-making for leadership. Arvinas is looking to expand the benefits of Orchestra, with a goal to release modules for cost and resource management to minimize re-work.

Beam Suntory

Beam Suntory reinforced the importance of a Stage-Gate® process and now leverages data-based KPIs, with Planisware Enterprise as the source of truth for this data. By compiling their data and producing a scorecard to showcase these KPIs, the company’s executive leaders now have a full picture of their new product pipeline. Having a macro-level risk assessment of their product pipeline reduced strain on the organization and enabled them to predict potential pipeline problems before they could occur. The introduction of the new long-term projects module and the product pipeline reviews introduced new visibility to the 5-year Global Pipeline for their executive leaders.

Jazz Pharmaceuticals

Jazz Pharmaceuticals leverages the out-of-the-box Workbox module of Planisware Enterprise to ensure schedule data quality. The Workbox module serves as a “one-stop-shop” for users to identify and correct data quality errors and provide quantitative data on project plans. In a three-month period following implementation, Jazz Pharmaceuticals was able to see an average 36% improvement in data quality across all operational indicators. Users reported positive feedback on ease-of-use and time savings, while leadership is provided with critical visibility into data quality across the portfolio.
