cplace has proven to be a user-friendly, lean, and flexible solution. We were determined to avoid being dependent on a provider offering a custom-developed solution in a “black box” that would limit our range of options. cplace, with its Shared Source approach, is a positive exception in this market.

For years Continental AG’s Tires division used an internally developed solution to reliably plan the costs of its numerous R&D projects and perform reality checks during and after each project. However, the legacy software fell short in terms of user-friendliness, performance and user adoption. Furthermore, crucial project information was stored on separate drives and in isolated spreadsheets.

cplace Solution

Continental, one of the world’s leading tire manufacturers, uses cplace throughout its R&D organization to track project costs across its portfolio of research and development investments. This data provides crucial, detailed decision support to the management board while helping leaders allocate resources and set priorities. The platform built on cplace now handles project cost controlling, project monitoring, and project time tracking.
