Case study

The HTK Hygiene Technology Competence Center uses OpenProject for hybrid project management and an even better overview of its projects.

The innovative institute develops cross-industry and application-oriented solutions to hygiene-related problems on a scientific basis and relies on an interdisciplinary team of experts.

We value OpenProject very much because it offers elements of traditional and agile project management. This hybrid approach allows us to be very flexible, but also to plan well in advance. Having everything in one place and being able to track the project status at any time makes it easier for us to keep track of the ever-increasing project volume. Reporting is also much easier for us.

OpenProject for product development

The HTK Hygiene Technology Competence Center uses OpenProject to develop hygiene concepts for different industries. With the help of a project timeline, the Gantt chart, the individual tasks and project phases can be processed easily. With the project overview the current status is available for the project manager at any time and can be communicated to stakeholders quickly and easily.
