Etihad Airways, Hallmark Cards, Manulife, MassMutual, Moffitt Cancer Center, and The University of Texas System receive Planview Vision Awards

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — During the 20th annual Planview Horizons® customer conference held Oct. 17-19 in San Antonio, Texas, Planview recognized companies who advanced work and resource management by achieving and exceeding their goals for strategic planning, portfolio and resource management, product innovation, enterprise architecture, and collaborative work management. 2017 recipients of the Planview Vision Awards include Etihad Airways, Hallmark Cards, Manulife, MassMutual, Moffitt Cancer Center, and The University of Texas System.

"Each of our 2017 Planview Vision Awards recipients is committed to driving growth through technology and product innovation," said Scott Hardey, Planview chief customer officer. "By leveraging Planview work and resource management solutions, these seven companies have been able to reduce time-to-market, build intelligent products for a global marketplace, support key functions in IT organizations, and achieve strategic goals across the enterprise."

Etihad Airways
The second-largest airline of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways operates more than 1,000 flights per week to 110 passenger and cargo destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. With Planview Innotas®, Etihad successfully embedded a consistent project portfolio management process to improve schedule performance by 20 percent and accelerate time to market by 4 weeks. Etihad is connecting strategy with execution across the organization to enable rapid growth and championing a culture of success.

Hallmark Cards
Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, and employing more than 28,000 worldwide, Hallmark Cards, Inc. operates a diversified portfolio of businesses, each focusing on creating a more emotionally connected world by making a genuine difference in every life, every day. Hallmark uses Planview Projectplace® in many creative ways and to make the invisible visible. Once they moved their Kanban board from a Post-It note wall to a secure workspace in Projectplace, they were able to replace complex, spreadsheet driven processes while reducing the amount of paper used, and today their Kanban boards are a breeze to create, maintain, read, and access. 

Manulife is a global financial services group, operating as John Hancock in the United States and serving more than 22 million customers. Manulife needed a standard process to manage applications across the enterprise. Disconnected spreadsheets and inconsistent formats created a quarterly fire drill. Planview Troux® gave the company a single view into applications in use across the business. Manulife can now map application dependencies and key compliance information to prioritize applications and track critical data usage.

With 5 million customers, Springfield, Massachusetts-based MassMutual is a leading mutual life insurance company that is run for the benefit of its members and participating policyowners. MassMutual offers a wide range of financial products and services, including life insurance, disability income insurance, long term care insurance, annuities, retirement plans, and other employee benefits. Since 2013, MassMutual has expanded Planview Troux from simply storing business applications and capabilities, to being the primary support system for key roles within its technology organization.

Moffitt Cancer Center
Tampa-based Moffitt Cancer Center is one of only 49 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers. Within 90 days, Moffitt Cancer Center deployed Planview Enterprise and just one year later, after ditching spreadsheets, they were able to realize their strategic vision of converging enterprise architecture, the PMO, and IT governance.

The University of Texas System
The University of Texas System is one of the largest public university systems in the United States, with 14 institutions and an enrollment of more than 234,000 students. With Planview Enterprise, The University of Texas System tracks outcomes and delivers updates to the UT System chancellor, executive officers, and institution presidents, so they can make informed decisions on strategic initiatives across 14 institutions.
