Hasbro chooses AMS REALTIME Software to control
Project Planning
 
AMS Realtime

Reading, February 2003 - Advanced Management Solutions, a market leader in solutions for Enterprise Project and Resource Management (software), has been chosen by Hasbro UK Ltd to provide AMS REALTIME™ software. The agreement incorporates the implementation of AMS REALTIME Resources, our resource management solution as well as AMS REALTIME Solo and the AMS REALTIME Enterprise Server.

Hasbro had difficulty in tracking their projects and both the external and internal resources attached to them. The AMS REALTIME resource management (RTR) component has recently been integrated with their existing Microsoft Project planning tool, providing project managers and team members with the information they require to complete their jobs on schedule and to budget.

AMS REALTIME is used to help manage Hasbro's IT development. The company's IT team is spread across Europe, and projects can often involve people from more than one country. Therefore, tracking projects and the internal/external resources assigned to each project is essential.

Robert Kingswell, UK Programme Manager for Hasbro, commented, “AMS have greatly improved our capability to keep close control on the resource usage of particular projects. With this comes the significant advantage of savings in both cost and time as we manage our resources with greater efficiency.”

Ervin Munir (AMS Managing Director) stated: “We are delighted to welcome Hasbro UK to our client base. There is a growing realisation that managing resources effectively is essential to successful project delivery. Hasbro have recognised this and they selected AMS REALTIME to provide the necessary visibility of resource availability so that they can manage resource workload. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.”
