The new company consists of TJ Group’s Project and Time Management business, personnel and technology. Additionally, two persons from the TJ Group management will transfer to the new company to strengthen its business operations.
TJ Group Plc, which offers CRM solutions, has founded a subsidiary called PlanMill Ltd. PlanMill Ltd will focus on solutions for European project-driven organizations, such as professional service companies and corporate IT and R&D departments. PlanMill will help service and project organizations to achieve best possible productivity by improving the overall management of personnel, projects, and business goals.
– We believe that Workforce Optimization is a large, new market opportunity, which PlanMill is ideally suited to lead, given its heritage in PSA and collaborative project management, says Thomas Hood, who will be transferring from the position of Sales Development Director of TJ Group to the Chief Executive Officer of PlanMill.
– The starting point of the new company is good. It is backed by several experienced professionals, who have very similar views on how to benefit customers and make profitable business in the PSA and collaborative project management market.
– Transferring the functions of the Project and Time Management unit to PlanMill is part of TJ Group’s strategy adjustment program published in March 2001. According to it, we adjusted the solution portfolio so that it focuses on solutions built around customer relationship management (CRM), says Mikko Setälä, CEO of TJ Group Plc.
