Planview® is hosting its 16th annual Planview Horizons customer conference this week in Austin, Texas. More than 20 Planview customers – including University of Utah Health Care, CSM Bakery, NASCO, Zurich, and Flowserve– will deliver presentations about how they maximize opportunities with constrained resources, build plans with integrated strategy and execution, improve agility and collaboration, make better decisions using analytics and reporting, and increase capacity to innovate using Planview solutions.
