ABRO, a trading agency of the British Ministry of Defence, is utilizing the most recent project management software to match the efficiency of established private sector competitors in Great Britain. This will empower the organization to maximize the return on investment in resources and facilities, and reduce work in progress. Furthermore, it has become a more agile business, continuously enhancing its efficiency and ability to respond to changes in customer demands. The new Project Portfolio Analyser has made resource allocation across ABRO's projects, production centers and workshop teams more faster and more effective.
