Paris (August 21, 2023) – Leading Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) software provider Sciforma announces a new client: Verkehrs- Nürnberg (VAG). A municipal operator of Nuremberg, Germany’s subways, trams, and buses, VAG selected Sciforma for resource and capacity management, risk analysis, and roadmap visualization within the IT Department.
“The VAG keeps Nuremberg and its surrounding regions on the move,” said Markus Kreitschmann, Head of IT at VAG. “To help us responsibly manage that task, we needed a central, transparent platform for managing our projects. Sciforma allows our IT staff to centrally plan and record projects and tasks for more effective resource utilization, stakeholder visibility, and scheduling.“
With a 150-year history, VAG is one of Germany’s largest transportation companies, serving travelers across Nuremberg and surrounding regions. Up to 400,000 passengers utilize their nearly 400 buses, trams, and subways every day.
Prior to Sciforma PPM, the VAG IT Department managed its projects with Excel and MSProject. Accordingly, the team was unable to simultaneously manage multiple projects or effectively plan resources—so they sought a change. Particularly, they wanted a tool that allowed them to consider capacity in project schedules, oversee resource allocation and requests, proactively detect and analyze risks, and automatically visualize roadmaps. VAG favored Sciforma over other PPM competitors for its scalability, customizability, cost, and customer process visibility.
Verkehrs-Aktiengesellschaft Nürnberg joins a growing pool of organizations using PPM for project and portfolio planning and prioritization. Across industries, Sciforma clients have utilized the PPM platform to analyze and rebalance their strategic initiatives. This is especially crucial in ever-changing market conditions.
Sciforma PPM customers span a wide range: from SMEs to divisions of some of the world’s largest and most dynamic companies. To request a demo or information, contact Sciforma.
