We choose Lighthouse Consultings based on their strong industrial expertise to redefine our Gate-Review system. Together we benchmarked and defined all deliverables for the different project sizes. The cooperation doesn´t stop here, in just 7 days our solutions partner developed for us the full integration of project management and gate review system into Smartsheet. Today we could reduce eMails and reporting preparation. As result, we handle now more projects with higher complexity with the same amount of people.
As we continue growing our business, it was time for us to look into new work management solutions Lighthouse Consultings developed a Smartsheet and PowerBi integration for our project management which enable me today a perfect in-depth view over our project status across all hierarchies and make faster decisions.
