Autodesk, Inc. announced that major retail customers PETCO and Panera Bread are streamlining all aspects of the store design program lifecycle, from site acquisition through program roll-outs, by using the Autodesk Buzzsaw collaborative project management solution. Both companies implemented Buzzsaw over a year ago and have achieved a significant return on their investment by increasing productivity and saving thousands of dollars by more efficiently managing store planning, design, construction and maintenance operations projects on time and within budget. Using Buzzsaw as their primary project communication and collaboration solution over the past 18 months has enabled Panera Bread and PETCO to simplify business processes, automate tasks, and share accurate site, design, construction, store and brand information across their project teams, accelerating store openings and improving accountability and productivity at each stage in the store lifecycle.
Buzzsaw features tools that allow project managers and team members to monitor progress and quickly identify potential problems and discrepancies-vital capabilities for retailers managing tens or hundreds of projects across the country or around the globe. Project portfolio dashboards and reports provide project status, schedule and budget information, while activity logs provide a complete listing of all project activity. Automatic notifications keep project team members informed of important changes and updates.
