Paris (January 2, 2023) – Leading Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) software provider Sciforma announces that ECOL, specialized in industrial engineering and manufacturing machinery, has chosen the Sciforma PPM platform.  The Sciforma platform will be used to guide the full range of the ECOL’s operations, in concert with the company’s critical chain project management (CCPM) and Kanban methodologies.

“It is not uncommon for departments within the same company to take different approaches to project management. An important advantage of the Sciforma platform is the ability to seamlessly handle those multiple project management methodologies,” said Stéphane Louit, head of sales for Sciforma. “Unifying all the departments under a single, cloud-based PPM platform while accommodating existing methodologies was an essential point in ECOL’s choice of Sciforma.” 

“The Sciforma platform will be the main guide for all the company’s operations, starting with the preparation of bids, load balancing, purchasing and subcontracting, assembly, shipping and production,” said Emilio Cuesta, co-owner of ECOL.  “It will be used primarily with our CCPM approach, as well as in combination with Kanban by some departments. Sciforma will provide advance visibility on resource availability for both corporate and departmental management, enabling optimal, cost-effective delivery.”

ECOL is based in Spain, designing and delivering custom-built machinery and industrial engineering services to a worldwide clientele. Especially well-known in the automotive glass production and nuclear component handling sectors, it recently expanded its production facilities. Previously the company had relied on Excel sheets, which obscured the real availability of resources and workloads, and increased the cost of meeting delivery terms. Striving for continuous improvement, ECOL plans to leverage the Sciforma platform to become the most competitive player in its sectors.

Today’s industrial sector faces unprecedented challenges. PPM solutions like Sciforma can provide enterprise-wide transformation support, empowering all the stakeholders in a company-wide and inclusive digitalization strategy.

Sciforma customers span a wide range: from SMEs to divisions of some of the world’s largest and most dynamic companies. To request a demo or information, contact Sciforma.
