Long-Time User, The Hershey Company, Leveraged EPM Live for Its Full PPM Functionality


  • Headquartered in Hershey, PA, The Hershey Company is the largest producer of quality chocolate in North America and a global leader in chocolate and sugar confectionery. With over 15 products and seven other brands, Hershey needed a proficient way to track all projects, communicate effectively with team members.
  • Hershey also recognized a need for resource management, time and budget tracking.


  • Hershey leveraged EPM Live for its full PPM.
  • Through EPM Live, Hershey now has excellent resource management, budgeting, and time tracking.
  • Hershey also selected EPM Live because of its flexible nature. Hershey is an IBM Websphere shop so SharePoint is not deployed at all.


Hershey has been using EPM Live for more than 7 years and increased its user base from 350 to 700 over that time period.
