ASAŞ, which has the industry's first R&D Center approved by the Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology, preferred to design its own software for the management of the projects within the company, instead of outsourcing a software. The aim of the ASAŞ Project Management System is to increase the project participation rate thanks to the features such as saving time in project writing and approval process, establishment of corporate memory, simplicity in evaluation and monitoring system and dynamic reporting. The system, which is accessible from any environment, offers great advantages by being more flexible and simpler than equivalent package programs, requiring no annual licensing costs, and integrating SAP with Meyer systems, in addition to eliminating advisor dependency with a user-friendly interface. The system, designed by ASAŞ R&D engineers, provided a 123% increase in project participation after its launch in the first half of 2015.
