Wallenstam chooses Antura Projects as their new PPM Tool

Wallenstam has chosen Antura as supplier of their new project and portfolio tool for the entire business. By integrating the project methodology and make it easily accessible in the tool, project execution will be streamlined and create a learning organization. In addition, Wallenstam will be able to manage their project portfolio in a much more efficient way.

When it became apparent that Wallenstam´s previous solution, which consisted of many different systems and a lot of manual work to connect them together, was no longer enough they started looking for a new project and portfolio management (PPM) tool. A thorough internal needs analysis was undertaken as part of a market evaluation process. 

As a result of this internal needs analysis, and to generate value in day-to-day activities, Wallenstam’s priorities in a PPM Tool included a high degree of user-friendliness and comprehensive toolset for project developers, project managers, property managers and line managers. In addition, Wallenstam wanted to be able to display, analyze, follow up and manage their entire project portfolio in a much more efficient way.

After the market evaluation process was complete, the clear choice was Antura Projects.

Focus on new property development and rebuilding projects
Initially, Wallenstam will use Antura Projects for their property development and rebuilding projects, but will also soon use it for land development, planned maintenance, business, and IT projects. Training will be conducted with a strong connection to everyday business in order to facilitate a smooth on-boarding and adoption process.

Handling of 2D and 3D models
Wallenstam will start using a completely new add-on function called the Antura Projects IFC Viewer that makes it possible to visualize and navigate 2D and 3D models directly in the browser. Being able to easily view and demonstrate 3D models of their new property development projects gives Wallenstam and their stakeholders a new opportunity for close and effective communication.

- We are very happy that Wallenstam has given us the confidence to deliver Antura Projects as their new PPM tool. We are convinced that they have made an excellent choice and that they will be able to work more efficiently with their various projects, said David Spjuth, Project Manager and Business Consultant at Antura.

As of the time of writing there are already plans for Wallenstam to use even more functionality within Antura Projects, including resource management.

”We saw a need to coordinate, simplify and clarify our working methods according to the project methodology. With Antura Projects we can do that, which in turn will make it easier for all our project members. It is important for us to be able to collect all project related information and make it structured and easily accessible. Therefore, the file archive in Antura Projects will also be a very useful functionality for both internal and external users”
