The University will implement nearly all e-Builder modules, including Cost, Processes, Documents, and Schedule, to manage its ongoing multi-million capital program.
Ft. April 13, 2012
e-Builder, the number one provider of integrated capital program and project management software to colleges and universities, announced today that The University of Pennsylvania, a top 5 College rated by US News & World Report, has launched e-Builder Enterprise as its capital project management system to track capital project costs and schedule milestones. The University will implement nearly all e-Builder modules, including Cost, Processes, Documents, and Schedule, to manage its ongoing multi-million capital program.
The University’s Facilities and Real Estate Services team conducted a thorough review and selection process to replace their previous solution for a user-friendly platform that is also easier to configure. In addition, e-Builder brings robust cost tracking, forecasting, and reporting capabilities. One of the requirements defined in the initial RFP was that the chosen system be able to integrate with the University’s financials system. This integration will allow for seamless data exchange to eliminate inefficiencies related to duplicate data entry, and to ensure costs are accounted for in the most efficient manner.
The Penn Facilities and Real Estate Services team has standardized all of their existing workflow approval using e-Builder’s Processes Module, a sophisticated workflow automation engine. Some of the key processes enabled in this go-live include Project Initiation, Capital Project Request, Budget & Certification Approvals, Change Orders, Contingency Changes, and Payment Application & Invoice Approvals.
Jon Antevy, e-Builder CEO, said “the leadership provided by the University coupled with the experience of our in-house implementation team resulted in yet another successful and timely launch of e-Builder”.
