Bright Horizons Uses ProjectXnet Hosting Services to Improve Cost Management and Collaborative Workflow

NEW YORK, Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright Horizons Family Solutions ( a leading provider of employer-sponsored child care uses ProjectXnet to improve electronic processes.

When the company moved away from an individual and paper-based system in 2004, they turned to Meridian Systems' Prolog Manager Software for its project management. The Cram Group began hosting Bright Horizons' Construction and Facilities software needs remotely. It developed a solution that gave Bright Horizons' project managers an integrated suite of software that included Prolog Manager from Meridian Systems, Microsoft Office, and Columbiasoft's Document Locator.

While Bright Horizons' IT department was not familiar with the software and workflow required, The Cram Group was. Wes Smith of The Cram Group explained, "Bright Horizons' needs were three-pronged: It had an IT availability issue, new applications that needed integration and configuration, and they needed long-term user support."

After one weekend of implementation and a short time period for the necessary testing and training, Bright Horizons has seen an improvement in information sharing, cost management, and the approval processes required by the organization. "Everything works faster now. We have the customization and customer service we need." Says Carole Mehan, Manager of Controls & Procedures at Bright Horizons.
