State of the Business

When Champion X was undergoing a significant spin merge, the need for a new, unified tool became apparent. This transition not only demanded a new solution for the emerging company but also offered an opportunity to assess and leverage tools for diverse global project portfolios.

Champion X faced challenges stemming from disparate legacy tools and varying levels of tool adoption. This decentralized approach led to concerns about data integrity and hindered the ability to make informed business decisions.
