e-Builder, the pioneer of web-based capital program and project management software, today announced its 13-year anniversary working with North America’s largest facility owners and AEC firms, experiencing its best year in terms of new customer acquisition and growth. Since January 2008, e-Builder has experienced over 75% growth in year over year sales with many well known clients managing capital and construction projects in the healthcare, K-12, hospitality, higher education, retail, commercial development, and manufacturing industries.
The company attributes this record growth in part to e-Builder’s growing momentum, generated by the release in July of 2007of its upgraded owner-centric program management suite, e-Builder Enterprise 6.0. The integrated suite added enhanced capabilities around cost and schedule management, reporting, workflow, and bidding, and was recently recognized in Buildings Magazine’s Top 100 Products list. The company also believes that the slowing economy has prompted organizations to proactively find ways to do more with less, using e-Builder as the platform and a springboard to achieve this goal.
e-Builder was co-founded in 1995 by Jonathan N. Antevy, an architect with a Masters Degree in Construction Management earned at the University of Florida’s School of Architecture and the M.E. Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction. Mr. Antevy is widely credited for bringing capital project management and collaboration to the Internet, nominated by Engineering News-Record as one of the Top 25 Newsmakers of the year for being the first person to move practical construction applications onto the Web.
After dealing with the inefficiencies, lack of collaboration, and poor communications plaguing the construction industry, Mr. Antevy researched and presented his year-long study of Internet applications as a way to address these challenges. This research became the foundation for e-Builder. Four years later, McGraw-Hill made a strategic investment in the company.
e-Builder is a leading provider of web-based, capital program and project management and collaboration software. The company’s flagship product, e-Builder Enterprise, provides owners of large capital development projects with a way to reduce contingency expenditures and control schedule and scope across their entire portfolio to ensure timely, on-budget project completion. Since 1995 e-Builder’s technology and industry focus has provided thousands of owners, architects, engineers, contractors and suppliers with solutions that enhance the development, design and construction processes.
