Paul Goedhart's Projects

  • Introduce Spectro & new GUI to software applic

    • February 2013 to Present
    Team Members: Paul Goedhart, Hans van Dodewaard, Tom Peter Nieuwenhuizen, Rob Langezaal, Kenneth Touw

    Als projectmanager heb ik de ontwikkeling van een nieuwe functionaliteit op het bestaande, in eigen huis ontwikkelde, software applicatie voor de automotive industrie met ca. 12000 gebruikers geleidt. De nieuwe functionaliteit betrof de toevoeging van een zg. spectrofotometer. Met 3 projectgroepen leidde ik het overall project waaronder de coördinatie met inkoop (aangaande een inkoop verplichting van ca 1 miljoen), de afstemming met sales en marketing voor een juiste introductie. En was ik projectleider van de projectgroep techniek. Hierin was ik verantwoordelijk voor de technische uitvoering door zowel interne specialisten als externe professionals en het uitvoeren van testen bij klanten zowel in Nederland als daarbuiten. Door het succes van dit project is de beoogde verkoopdoelstelling met ruim 300% overtroffen.
