FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 15, 2010 — e-Builder, the leading provider of integrated capital program and project management software announced today that the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), one of the top-rated science and engineering institutions in the country, has selected e-Builder Enterprise as its capital project management system to manage and control project delivery. Caltech’s Design and Construction team will also leverage e-Builder’s workflow automation engine during facility planning, design and construction.
The award-winning e-Builder Enterprise will allow Caltech’s Design and Construction team to standardize how project managers execute a broad set of processes, including contract approvals, change management, purchase orders, transmittals, RFIs, and more. The initial implementation will leverage e-Builder’s Cost, Schedule, Processes, and Documents module. e-Builder will enable a consistent and structured approach that will streamline review and approval of key project information, so that fast turnaround projects can be delivered in a timely manner. Caltech’s Design and Construction team evaluated several solutions but selected e-Builder because it best met their needs regarding delivery model, scheduling and reporting flexibility.
By centralizing project information, eliminating Excel spreadsheets, and leveraging e-Builder’s integrated reporting tools, the Design and Construction team will be able to provide Caltech’s administration with visibility into project cost and schedule status in a highly efficient manner.
