How Pitney Bowes used their Agile integration to manage portfolios and automate time entry in CA PPM

July 25, 2018 • 12PM EST

Wouldn’t it be great if people could focus on their jobs, not processes and tools?

When the global commerce company Pitney Bowes integrated CA Agile Central with CA PPM, that's what they were after—more business value for 250 product lines and 1,200 engineers.

Join the Pitney Bowes Portfolio Management & Agile Teams—Gale Persil and Larry Savitsky—in a conversation with Rego’s Josh Leone and CA's Dave Sprague about why CA PPM was the right fit for Pitney Bowes' hybrid Agile environment, and how they used innovative Rego technology like automated time collection and submittal, so users could spend less time wrestling tools and more time building products.
