Belron is a vehicle glass repair and replacement group operating worldwide across 34 countries and employing over 25,000 people. The IT team at Belron is headquartered in the United Kingdom, with additional IT teams spread out across the globe. The chief aim of the IT team at Belron is to deliver new technology solutions, tools, and processes to the entire company, particularly in the areas of project management, business analysis, and platforms.
As a global enterprise company, Belron faces many of the typical challenges of a large organization: dispersed business units, communication challenges, and many interlaced initiatives. Before using ProductPlan, the IT team at Belron struggled with building and maintaining accurate IT roadmaps to keep remote teams in sync and communicate the high-level plan to executive leadership.
Ross Nelson, IT Manager at Belron, came across ProductPlan when searching for a convenient, easy-to-use solution for building high-level roadmaps. His team had previously been using a number of different tools for building roadmaps, including Visio, PowerPoint, and Excel, but weren’t happy with any of them. Visio and PowerPoint took too much time to keep updated, while Excel didn’t provide the sharing options his team needed. With ProductPlan, however, Ross was able to sign up and build his first roadmap in minutes.
