OpenProject enables us to plan and structure projects quickly and comprehensibly, and thus to maintain an overview and stick to deadlines. At the same time, OpenProject allows us to have an efficient and sustainable exchange with customers and partners.

OpenProject for the implementation of a law and for personnel development

The District Office Enzkreis is using OpenProject for different types of projects as it offers a variety of features and adapts to each project.
One example is the implementation of the federal participation act (‘Bundesteilhabegesetz’) where several people from within the District Office Enzkreis but also external parties formed part of the project team.
The Enzkreis also used OpenProject for personnel development and the accompanying change management. Project members were invited to share information and participate and the whole process was made more interactive.

Overall, for the District Office Enzkreis, OpenProject contributes to a better visualisation of projects which leads to a better structure and overview. Also, project members have access to information at any time and exchange more information as before as it is facilitated by the web-based project management system.

Why does the District Office Enzkreis appreciate project management with OpenProject?


Creating a great overview over the project timeline with a Gantt chart that also shows all dependencies.

Information exchange

The use of one web-based system that contains all information for everyone at any time makes collaboration much more efficient.

Efficient meetings

Meetings have become much easier by organising via OpenProject. Your agenda and minutes are done in the same form during the meeting.
