PPS help Anchor with Smartsheet Implementation for care home build programme

Anchor Homes are England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for people over 55 and have an ambitious growth strategy and clear vision for the future. Anchor plan to develop around 2500 new units of accommodation over the next five years and believe their program of exciting and innovative new developments demonstrate commitment to meeting the changing aspirations of older people.

“We have an extensive build programs with a lot of subject matter experts involved. Most colleagues don’t have access to or training on MS Project, so we needed a project tool that could:

a) have multiple projects in one place

b) involve little training

c) be stored centrally and be live information

d) highlight where tasks were out of their scheduled timescales (RAG system)

e) allow for minimal maintenance.

Project Plan Services helped develop, build, train and maintain the Smartsheet solution for us. We have multiple projects with 800+ lines for each so the creation of these was quite time consuming, which PPS helped to make easy. They are always at the end of the phone to help. Smartsheet has worked out to be exactly what we needed and is working well to manage our projects within the company.”
