IT Innovation Prize: Can Do one of the nominees

  • Can Do project intelligence project management software nominated for the IT Innovation Prize (ERP category) of the Medium Enterprise Initiative
  • Project software convinces through its Staffer feature that closes the gap between project and line

The Munich-based Can Do GmbH was once again honoured at this year’s IT Innovation Prize competition of the Medium Enterprise Initiative: Can Do’s project management software is one of the three nominees for the IT Innovation Prize in the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) category and is thus one of the top 3 products here. The independent jury of numerous professors, academics, industry representatives and specialist journalists was convinced by the new Staffer function of the planning tool. The Staffer links organisation of project and line and especially simplifies the coordination process of overall resource management. Medium and large enterprises are thus able to utilise their staff optimally – both in projects and in the respective departments.

Comprehensive resource management between project and line

In the past few years, Can Do has won a number of awards for its project management software. For example, Can Do has been a prize winner at the IT Innovation Prize competition several times, the most recent of which was the “Best of 2012” award (ERP category). In 2010 Can Do was able to sway the “Battle of Tools” in the PMI Austria Chapter in its favour – this is a comparison between various project planning applications. Success creates demand: In 2011 and 2012, Can Do was one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Germany, according to the “Deloitte Technology Fast 50”.

Can Do develops its software continuously. After its unique portfolio management and integrated budget management, the software package was expanded to include the Staffer in the past year. This function eases the coordination process for staff requests between the projects and the respective departments. With a mouse-click, the project manager requests resources for his project from the individual departments. These requests are sent to the relevant department heads. They are able to view not only the requests from the projects, but also the capacitative utilisation of their department and employees – they know which employees are still available for the requested time-frame and who is operating at full capacity. With a mouse-click they then allocate their employees to the projects. In this way the planning tool creates transparency in projects and in the coordination processes with the specialist departments.
