“PM3 is key to our strategy of globalising the ACCO Brands IT Organisation and creating our Global Project Delivery capability, as it gives us a central view of our Global IT Portfolio. James Budd, Director – Global Portfolio & Project Management

After a software evaluation of the leading PPM packages in the market, ACCO Brands has selected PM3 as its global PPM tool for the next three years.

David Walton, Director of Bestoutcome, says: “We are delighted that ACCO Brands has chosen PM3 to help manage its projects and programmes. ACCO Brands has been one of the world’s leading suppliers of academic, consumer and business products for more than a century. We are enjoying working with ACCO Brands in rolling out PM3 across its international organisation."

James Budd, Director – Global Portfolio & Project Management, ACCO Brands, says, “We were looking for a software solution that allows us to manage our IT Project Portfolio, Project Delivery and Project Reporting effectively by providing a single tool for Portfolio Management, PMO Governance and standards, whilst improving the productivity of our Project Managers in the day-to-day management of their projects. Other tools on the market may meet one or two of these criteria, but we found that Bestoutcome’s PM3 was the only tool to meet all three, with an intuitive and efficient user interface.

“PM3 is key to our strategy of globalising the ACCO Brands IT Organisation and creating our Global Project Delivery capability, as it gives us a central view of our Global IT Portfolio, ensures projects are delivered consistently and governance standards are met.

“We are starting our PM3 implementation in Europe and the USA. Further international rollouts of PM3 will follow.”
