Success story

CAD Consultancy manages its freelancers effortlessly with Orangescrum.

" I work with Freelancers to get the CAD jobs done. Orangescrum provided me with a way for them to bill their time directly using in the project they are working on. This saves me a lot of administrational work. At the end of the month I just need to create the invoice for my customer."

Brent Kerr | CEO , Kewico GmbH

Their Story to Success

Project Management has always been the most important factor in achieving an efficient work flow. An efficient, structured workflow saves time and money in many ways. Our Company Kewico GmbH is a very small 2-3-man business. We do CAD work on an outsourcing basis for a larger company. We are responsible for drawing sales and installation plans for high tech milking equipment in the CAD industry. Each project has a team built up of a salesperson, project / installations manager, installation technicians and us providing the necessary CAD plans. The people involved differ depending on the Region of our country that the equipment is sold to.

Q & A

Why were you looking for a better way to do things and what you hoped to achieve?

With this number people involved in longer term projects with different phases and different teams, communication and collaboration become very difficult using conventional communication.

After testing a number of available project management software solutions we decided on Orangescrum. Orangescrum provided us with the perfect solution to collaborate on line, keeping track of task statuses, responsibilities and deadlines in a very user friendly interface. Most of the other solutions we tested provided similar management tools but were much more complicated to set up and use.

Q & A

How 'Orangescrum' solved your problem?

After 1 month of using Orangescrum we noticed big advantages in the efficiency of our organisation. Organisational problems were solved, including: clear responsibility allocation, traceable project activity - as all communication is posted on Orangescrum under the related project and task, all allocated team members are always up to date as well as Future analysis in case of problems or failures is traceable.

  • Add-ons
  • But that's not all. With the purchase of the optional add-ons Time log and Invoices, we were able to minimise our administrational workload. Our Freelance CAD workers can log their times to each project as they go. Meaning we only need to allocate their times to an invoice to complete the billing procedure. The invoices can be marked as payed and archived allowing us to easily keep track of payments.

    We have also experienced good support. Using the open source version with the paid add-ons we were able to make a couple of small changes to suite our needs.
We can highly recommend this software to anyone needing a project management software with an easy to use interface and clearly presented lists and work flows. Orangescrum increased our project management efficiency dramatically.
