Overview and flexibility
Achieving the unexpected
Whether it is an unforgettable event, an inventive product presentation or a funny advertising campaign: whenever something needs to be made into a sensation, ProEvent GmbH is in demand.
Since 1994, the Neuss-based advertising and marketing agency has organised events for well-known clients with passion, attention to detail and the highest level of professionalism. The clients’ individual requests are key: the six employees consider the clients’ specific demands and characteristics just as carefully as their marketing.
A shared platform
Excel and Word, the traditional Office programs, were the usual toolkit for ProEvent’s project plans. The project managers listed deadlines, participants, tasks, responsibilities, progress – in short, all the details that were needed for the relevant project. If there were changes, the project managers sent the files by e-mail to everyone involved. Their notes came back to the project managers, were incorporated, and the whole thing was sent round again.
“It worked,” says Axel Zens, Managing Director of ProEvent GmbH. “But we wanted to progress. There was such a vast amount of work involved.” If a client asked for an overview of everything that had been done so far, it meant half a day of research. Then, when ProEvent received a particularly extensive long-term project, the decision was made: a professional project software was introduced.
The aim was to integrate lots of different project participants and enable them to access the necessary data. “A web-based solution was ideal for this,” says Axel Zens. He looked at what was available on the market, tested Projectplace, and was convinced.
Flexible, together, clear
With Projectplace, ProEvent has created a shared platform for all participants in a project where all the documents and data are saved. “E-mail attachments have therefore become unnecessary,” says Zens.
