CA Technologies Project and Portfolio Management solution helped INAIL take a standardized approach to ICT project and contract management. This has enabled a quicker and more accurate project and budget planning, thereby ensuring that invoices get paid on time.
CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) announced today that INAIL, the Italian Institute for the insurance against accidents at work, adopted CA Clarity™ Project & Portfolio Management (PPM), CA Technologies integrated solution empowering organizations to seamlessly manage their services, projects, products, people and financials.
INAIL does more than just provide compensation for accident victims. Its objectives include reducing the number of work-related accidents and insuring workers involved in high risk activities against temporary and permanent work-related disability, occupational diseases and fatal accidents. The Institute also acts in the social and welfare system, assisting every work accident victim in order to foster his/her rehabilitation and reintegration into family, social and professional life.
INAIL is constantly investing in new IT projects to ensure its processes remain efficient and up to date.
“Some of our initiatives have a recurrent fixed spending, so planning cash flow and financial aspects are pretty simple”, comments Stefano Tomasini, CIO of INAIL “For other on-demand initiatives the supplier has to plan the project with its relevant budget”.
Thanks to CA Clarity™ Project & Portfolio Management (PPM), used by 300 employees, INAIL is now able to monitor a wide variety of IT-related projects, along with the relevant budgets and invoices. Real time insight into planned budget and the actual spending for each contract improves planning speed and accuracy and enables INAIL to pay invoices within 30 days, as required by law.
With CA Clarity PPM, INAIL’s IT department has regained control of its budgets. The solution has enabled INAIL to adopt a standardized approach to project and contract management, ensure that invoices get paid on time and comply with legislation, and reduce costs and resources that were allocated to maintain pre-existing software.
“We have been able to eliminate costly errors and delays, and to significantly improve the efficiency of budget and invoices processing”, Tomasini concludes: “As well as being able to comply with the new legislation, now we have a better control of our budgets, and we can ensure the optimum use of public funds.”
