Customer’s Need:

RPM is a world’s largest publicly listed independent group of mining technical experts. The company operates offices in 19 locations across 13 countries and serves customers in over 118 countries.

  • Audits of research and development effort would continually find inconsistencies between timesheets and TFS

Back in 2009 RPM started to look for an easy-to-use and flexible tool to replace the previous solution that involved running reports to manually reconcile time sheets against TFS and was less effective but time consuming.

 Solution and Outcomes

TeamExpand was very happy to provide an easy-to-work with, simple and cost effective solution to help RPM team achieve their business goals and objectives. Our experts also managed to implement a number of custom requirements including a build to export timesheet data in order to upload to other ERP systems.

Besides being able to cut off expenses associated with manual time sheet management RPM managed to minimize time and efforts spent by the engineering team on time reporting as developers do not longer need to understand what project to book time to but can simply book against TFS tasks assigned to them.
