Workfront Enterprise Work Management solution simplifies end-to-end IT change management process, increasing team productivity and project on-time delivery

Processes must be flawless in a company that values quality and moves two million fresh bakery products around the country every day. Warburtons, one of Britain’s best food businesses, increased the productivity of its integrated IT services team by replacing an inefficient IT change management process built on Lotus Notes with Workfront. In addition to saving senior and middle-management up to 12 hours in time each week, the Workfront Enterprise Work Management solution has standardized the baker’s approach to application, infrastructure, and governance changes while giving team members greater autonomy. Warburtons is the largest bakery brand in the UK. Since the company was established by Thomas and Ellen Warburton in 1876, it has been passed down through five generations of family bakers, and proudly remains a private family-owned and run business. As pioneers of the industry and ambitious market leaders, Warburtons is always seeking to challenge convention.
