Rodenstock is a prominent manufacturer of eyeglass lenses and frames in Germany. Project planning is a key concern for Rodenstock, whose reputation and success depends on its ability to bring innovations to market quickly. Until recently, the company planned projects using stand-alone solutions, including Microsoft Office Project Standard 2003 and Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheet software. To gain companywide consistency and efficiencies, Rodenstock deployed the Microsoft Office Enterprise Project Management Solution, which it uses in conjunction with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007; it chose SOLVIN to configure and implement the solution. Rodenstock now has fast access to project data that is always up to date. The company's workflows proceed more quickly, which translates to a faster time-to-market. The solution also provides improved administration of access rights.
