The overall package is right

The management consultancy Kreutz & Partner has been using ZEP Professional successfully for a good 7 years now - at that time with about a third of the staff it has today. The search focused on a tool for the consultancy's comprehensive project controlling. Why did it need software at all? Quite simply, the effort and error-proneness of the combination of Excel for time recording and Word for invoicing was getting out of hand and was no longer manageable for the team. Moreover, this combination cost important resources and above all time! "There must be a simpler way," thought Juliane Baetzel, Managing Assistant at the time. Above all, the increased turnover and the growth of the business made a simpler, user-friendly solution indispensable. After testing several tools, the choice finally fell on ZEP. "The overall package is just right," says Juliane Baetzel happily, "because you can get started straight away without having to install anything or set anything up in advance!

Necessary evil - quite simple with ZEP

Nobody really likes time recording, it is and remains a necessary evil. But: Due to the easy handling of ZEP, the tool has quickly integrated itself into the workflow of Kreutz & Partner's various fields of activity. "The comprehensive functions and modules make our everyday work much easier," says Juliane Baetzel. From pure time recording to holiday and resource planning to project controlling with subsequent invoicing, ZEP is the tool of choice for the Cologne-based consultancy. "Thanks to the flexibility and modularity of the software, ZEP adapts smoothly to changing needs and our requirements," says Juliane Baetzel.

Final conclusion

"We zepen because it supports us a lot in our work!" - Juliane Baetzel. Apart from the software functions, the service responses of the ZEP support team are what really excite them. "No matter when we have questions, we always get a competent answer promptly. We don't know of any other service provider that works so well. Here, individual change requests are dealt with immediately and we think that's just super!"
