In 2017, Devro successfully launched Fine Ultra. It was the first major new product the company brought to market supported by Workfront and new processes in product development.
Since then, the company has moved beyond product development, optimising its process engineering and ability to capture finance capital requests, while ramping up for strategic project planning. The easily configurable Workfront dashboards provide game-changing visibility to prioritise work and resources, dramatically reducing the number of hours per week once spent on manual reporting.
Hughes and his colleagues now spend up to 90% less time building project status reports. What could take up to 2 days every month now requires just 30 minutes to pull everything together, saving considerable time just on reporting. Workfront dashboards automatically generate key metrics for a real-time view into a project, which can be easily shared with others across the organisation.
For Hughes and the rest of the Devro team, this transformation has been one of their crowning achievements.
“I’ve dedicated my career to helping companies align people and processes to generate success for both,” he says. “An enterprise work management solution such as Workfront gives us the tools we need to help everyone be even more effective in their roles and more satisfied with their jobs and then adapt our processes accordingly. It’s a more dynamic, modern and intelligent way to work.”
