Planview has announced that Projectplace, a project collaboration platform, has been selected by the CONNECT Centre for Future Networks to help drive future telecommunications innovation in Ireland. Projectplace will reportedly be instrumental in building relationships among the organisation’s members and partners, spread across Ireland. The collaboration platform will ensure effective communications, collaboration and interaction among the team.

CONNECT spans 10 universities and research organisations, including Trinity College, Dublin City College and Dublin Institute of Technology, as well as 37 industry partners located throughout Ireland. Together, they are building the foundations of Ireland’s future telecommunications networks, ensuring the development of wireless, cellular, 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. Because ofo the large number of organisations involved in the project, and the need to protect sensitive partner information, collaboration was identified as a key challenge.

After carrying out extensive research into the different tools available in the market, CONNECT selected Projectplace as it best met its business requirements, including complying with strict security industry standards.

Key benefits of product application

  • Dr Frank Smyth, executive director at CONNECT, said: ‘It can get extremely messy when you have 30 or 40 people updating the same document, leading to chaos. Projectplace’s clean and simple design allows us to effortlessly share and collaborate on documents, without having to worry about version control.’
  • According to Smyth, Projectplace ensures that every partner organisation CONNECT works with has a safe and highly secure location where they can share their documents and files with relevant team members, without running the risk of them being viewed by unauthorised users.
  • By storing documents in the cloud, CONNECT’s members and partners are able to easily manage projects and store, share and edit documents without the need to interlink their organisation’s IT systems.
  • Projectplace’s secure document-sharing and user-friendly planning, collaboration and task management features allow CONNECT’s teams to break down complex projects into manageable tasks as well as set and track key milestones for each project. This enables team members to visualise project progress and simplifies the stakeholder reporting process.
  • Projectplace’s online meeting rooms enable teams to come together in a virtual environment, further facilitating cross-country project collaboration, planning and execution among CONNECT’s expected 300 Projectplace users.
  • Smyth said: ‘We’re phasing out mailing lists and moving all communications onto Projectplace. We have very quickly come to realise that Projectplace serves the most value when everyone uses it, as it enables everyone working on a project to have complete visibility over who is doing what and when. The biggest benefits it offers are that it helps teams work seamlessly together and makes everyone feel like they’re under the same roof.’
