How Humbel moves through the gears with BigPicture

Our logo contains quite a few cogs/gears, and so we were delighted to notice that recently Humbel Gears became our customer! It’s a leader in the gear production market since 1928. Humbel plays a leading role in the industry as a center of expertise for everything associated with innovative gear technology. With four production locations in Europe and in Asia and 400 employees in total, Humbel Group is well poised.

Their products are using in Formula 1 and Moto GP racing, airplanes, railways, armored military vehicles, excavators and many other cool areas. The company needed a tool to provide the literal big pciture – an voerview of their initiative and a single space to plan, execute and track many different projects.

323“As long time user and fan of JIRA in all business departments, I always used to plan and organize projects in a third party tool before implementing the tasks to JIRA. SoftwarePlant closes the gap between the strong priority driven task management in JIRA and a (visual) project + resource planning and reporting with the user friendly, but yet powerful plugin BigPicture”.
