Monolithic Power Systems

"Project Insight project management software has made my job much easier. We have a rather complex workflow/approval/communications system spread over two continents. Project Insight's software simplified our system, so now I can see everything I need in one place."

Main Challenges

Monolithic Power Systems makes hundreds of products used in back-lighting, automotive, battery chargers, power drivers and more. At any one time there are dozens of new products being introduced. It's a complex operation, and all of it was tracked using spreadsheets. As the company grew and the number of projects going through the process increased, it became more difficult to track their real-time status.

  • Lacked company transparency across project groups and continents
  • Lacked effective system for notifying project manager of schedule updates and changes
  • Lacked effective workflow to approve project documents in a timely manner
