D-Tools is a popular project management software that has been used by many companies globally for years. However, customers are now switching to XTEN-AV due to its additional features and capabilities. In this blog, we will share some success stories of customers who made the switch from XTEN AV Dtools.
Case Study 1: ABC Construction Company
ABC Construction Company had been using D-Tools for over 5 years but found the software lacking in some key areas. “While D-Tools served us well for a long time, we started finding its capabilities limited as our projects grew more complex”, said John Doe, Project Manager at ABC Construction. One of the key issues they faced was inadequate resource management and scheduling tools in D-Tools. This led to delays and cost overruns in some of their major projects.
When ABC Construction heard about XTEN-AV from one of their clients, they decided to evaluate if it could address their challenges better than D-Tools. “We were impressed with the advanced resource management, scheduling and collaboration tools in XTEN-AV. It was clear it would give us much better visibility and control over our projects”, added John.
After switching to XTEN-AV six months ago, ABC Construction is seeing notable improvements. “The integrated resource scheduling in XTEN-AV has helped us optimize resource allocation across projects and avoid delays. We’ve also been able to efficiently manage changes and catch issues early on,” said Jane Smith, Operations Manager. She added that workflows have streamlined with improved collaboration tools. Project managers are now able to update plans in real-time and teams stay on the same page.
Case Study 2: XYZ Electronics
XYZ Electronics is a manufacturer of electronics components with operations across 5 countries. They have over 1000 ongoing projects at any given time and managing them had become a challenge with their previous D-Tools setup. “The scale of our operations was simply too large for D-Tools to effectively handle. We needed a project management solution with much higher capacity,” explained Michael Miller, Program Director at XYZ Electronics.
Other key concerns included lack of visibility across geographies in D-Tools, buggy mobile experience, and inefficient change management workflows. When XYZ Electronics’ technology team learned about XTEN-AV through a tech conference, they were excited by its capabilities for complex, global projects.
After implementing XTEN-AV eight months ago across all their locations, XYZ Electronics’ project operations have been transformed. “XTEN-AV’s powerful reporting gives us real-time visibility into project health from anywhere. Teams can now work together seamlessly across timezones with its smooth mobile experience,” said Miller. Change requests are addressed 50% faster on average. Project updates are synced automatically without delay.
The search and filtering options in XTEN-AV also helped XYZ Electronics establish centralized control over all their projects for the first time. “We can now easily track dependencies, issues, and metrics for ongoing process improvements enterprise-wide,” added Miller. With consistent workflows established, XYZ Electronics expects to handle 30% more projects annually with the same resources.
Case Study 3: DEF Consulting
DEF Consulting is a leading management consultancy with marquee clients across multiple industries. As their project portfolio expanded, the firm came to rely heavily on D-Tools to manage engagements smoothly. However, over time, inefficiencies started creeping into their workflows. “With more projects, stakeholders, and moving parts than ever, we urgently needed a solution scalable for the future. That’s where XTEN-AV came in,” said Sarah Williams, Project Director at DEF Consulting.
Some key complaints with D-Tools included difficulty customizing views for different project types, inflexible permissions, and outdated interface. Soon after switching to XTEN-AV six months ago, these issues disappeared. “XTEN-AV’s intuitive interface simplified training and adoption firm-wide. Our teams can now customize dashboards per role, project type for perfect visibility,” explained Williams.
She highlighted how flexible permissions in XTEN-AV allowed creating unique access for each client. Project data also stays safely isolated. “Our client relationships have strengthened with transparent yet secure collaboration on their projects through XTEN-AV,” Williams added. Resource management and time-tracking have become more streamlined too.
Going forward, DEF Consulting aims to onboard new clients 50% faster with standardized XTEN-AV workflows and templates. “Overall, XTEN-AV’s configurability makes it a future-proof solution that keeps us ahead of our growing, dynamic business needs,” said Williams. She is confident it will help DEF Consulting scale to new heights.
As seen from these case studies, XTEN-AV has helped diverse organizations like ABC Construction, XYZ Electronics and DEF Consulting address key project management challenges and accelerate growth. Its robust feature-set provides seamless global collaboration, resource optimization, reporting and scalability that D-Tools lacked. While D-Tools served customers well for years, XTEN-AV takes project management capabilities to the next level. With advanced automation, teams can now focus on delivering projects more efficiently instead of administrative tasks. As more customers switch from D-Tools to XTEN-AV, it is clear the latter has established itself as the project management platform of choice. Its flexibility and performance make it well-suited to meet evolving business needs.
