Case Study

 

Astranet ®


IT and Web Solutions for the Economic Development Community.

Having amassed a collective of over 12 years experience working on European programs, Siemend a large Spanish EEN consortium with 9 individual consortia partners and hundreds of staff members they understood firsthand the complex nature of European programs and the intricate level of detail required.  Based on their experience the consortium were seeking a comprehensive project management and reporting tool to help the project achieve its goals and allow remote staff a cloud based system. Having seen the Astranet® platform being successfully adopted by 8 of the 12 UK consortia Siemed approached us and began working with Targeting Innovation in 2009 to create their own platform, a relationship which continues today into the new programme.

Astranet® platform provides the consortium with a cloud web-based project management tools to support the capture, management, recording and reporting of a range of project requirements. Our web-based solutions allows staff to record activities and deliverables against project targets in a secure, easy to use back office environment. Our system captures data including activities / time, company data / CRM, project outcomes and targets, manages workflows, and generate reporting criteria.

The system allows each partner to report on their own local targets, monitor and manage these on an ongoing basis and allows the project manager to collate centrally all of this data into end of year reports and more importantly the final claim reports. This process removes the need for spreadsheets and individual tracking saving time and ensuring smooth payment for all partners.
