The challenge

Brisa Bridgestone wanted to undertake a digital transformation for their IT systems and got in touch with Almbase. They wanted software that could meet all their needs while being easy to use. Brisa was new to the Atlassian Cloud and wanted Service and Project Management teams to use a shared tool for improved planning, reporting, and transparency. This would result in better risk analysis between these two teams. They also wanted to measure project cycle times and allow managers to provide real-time reports on their teams’ efforts.

Before working with Almbase, Brisa had to prepare executive reports using spreadsheets, but this was a very laborious and time-consuming manual process. Fortunately, Almbase had a fantastic solution.

The solution

After looking at a range of marketplace options, none of them came close to the extensive capabilities of ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud that Almbase recommended. One of its most prominent advantages over competitors was the vast array of scenarios it could handle. Other options only addressed part of the needs. ScriptRunner also had superior customisation features that could allow data to be displayed and used in the best way for their teams. It's impossible to overstate its practical use—users can program scripts, conduct integrations, and create listeners with little effort. Within no time, Brisa Bridgestone became very confident using the app. 

The results

ScriptRunner’s unrivalled power, customisation options, and flexibility allowed Brisa Bridgestone to:

  • Identify and address project bottlenecks in real time. 
  • Compute cycle times across business units with a complex formula, bespoke to each.
  • Simply automate tasks and customise workflows to achieve the project’s goals.
  • Create time-saving reports for weekly project meetings and improve the project’s visibility for everyone involved.
  • Generate data that appears directly in the dashboard.
  • Integrate ScriptRunner with other tools and software that were already in use.
  • Implement a complex approval hierarchy.

Conclusion

Almbase’s help supported Brisa Bridgestone through the migration of 2000 users to the same IT system. With ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud, Brisa automated many of their processes, made work more transparent, reduced lengthy weekly executive meetings to a mere 15 minutes, and completed the project significantly faster than anticipated. They massively improved their operational efficiency in every way.
