Streamline task management with centralized & accessible project data

To boost the Group’s growth, we focused on improving innovation management. That is why we optimized and synchronized our innovation processes. In an effort to better support our team, we also manage these processes in One2Team’s Enterprise Work Management platform.

This tool helps us manage our projects more efficiently because the information is harmonized, centralized and accessible to everyone, whether they’re in the plant, at headquarters or working at one of our subsidiaries. One2Team makes working in project teams simpler and easier, so we can foster collaboration and synergy among our teams, especially across the marketing, R&D and manufacturing teams.

Managers can also easily access their project portfolios in One2Team. They can verify in real time whether their portfolio is up-to-date, see what should be prioritized and where to focus teams’ efforts and resources on the Group’s strategic projects.

Since 2014, One2Team has been able to adapt to our needs in managing our innovation projects, and we manage our projects around Industrial Excellence and IT strategy within the same Work Management platform.
