What do the customers say:
“Bee4IT allows us to quickly and easily get an up-to-date picture of our main programs and portfolios. The integrative advantages of the management system have encouraged us to deploy additional processes such as resource management across the organization.”
„Bee4IT provides me with important information about the IT portfolio of my division, which I need to prepare and make investment decisions and to plan activities to optimize and enable Miele business processes. The effort for reporting has become much easier at various levels by implementing an automated, rolling approval process of new as well as ongoing projects and services, the uniform status report, and the standardized analyses of Bee4IT. Problems, risks, and dependencies in and particular between projects in the portfolio can be detected at an early stage.“
„Thanks to a meaningful combination of questionnaires, each question is only asked once. This facilitates the work of the IT system administrators. Reports on overdue tasks allow to address the responsible persons in a structured way. I can identify the systems that are sensitive to the company and those that are indispensable to meet legal requirements at the push of a button. Therefore, a current and transparent risk status of all systems is available at any time.”
„Bee4IT documents the entire process from the initial project idea to planning approval, the project proposal and any amendments up to project completion in a consistent manner and with all important details. This means that the current status of each individual project as well as an overview of the entire project portfolio is available at any time.“
