CBRE: “ The strongest characteristic of the TimeTell application is, that adjustments are easily made and processes can be easily fine-tuned. “
CBRE is an international advice agency for commercial real estate.
A year ago PeopleSoft was implemented in all the European offices for all the financial processes. Given that this was not a solution for Resource Planning and Time Registration, CBRE was looking, for an additional application, which could solve this in an efficient and user-friendly manner. TimeTell seemed like a suitable solution.
Matthieu Steenbeek, Senior Director Project Management, about the objects in relation to the use of TimeTell: “ To operate our business adequately, we wanted one application for Time Registration and Resource Planning, to get insight into our financial situation for each Business Unit ( Revenue, Forecast, Invoice) and for each Project. Within TimeTell it is possible to manage Peoplesoft ( which is responsible for the invoicing) and this contributes substantial with the increasing efficiency that has been made.”
The application has been evaluated positively by CBRE, especially the user-friendliness and the reporting possibilities. In April 2014 CBRE has started with TimeTell and the initial implementation went according to plan. “ The aftercare has been longer and more intensive due to altered insights after using TimeTell. Due to the continual question within the business, asking for more and better information, has resulted in a larger documentation and guardianship in TimeTell, then originally planned for. The fact that scope alterations were done later in time, shows off the strongest characteristic of the application, it is very simple to adjust or to fine-tune processes.”
Matthieu Steenbeek is very satisfied with the knowledge of the TimeTell consultant. “ The consultant that has guided us, has done this in an excellent way. There are several specific matters that were set up in regard to reports/exports and imports, that have helped us tremendously. Such as the cockpit report, a forecast report and in and export function that make sure that information with PeopleSoft can be exchanged.”
