Company Background and Organization
Our client recently transitioned to a project management-based organization and is looking to modernize our current business processes and Project Management System.

Our current system, called the Project Management Portal (PMP), is a web-based project management system that is mostly used to manage the construction portion of our projects. Awarded bids are entered into the system with itemized cost breakdowns, progress payments are issued and tracked based on these breakdowns and work performed. Contractor Daily activities, shop drawings and RFI’s are also entered and logged by the system. The system is reliant on electronic tracking of paper-based materials. The intent of using Unifier is to update and modernize all our current business processes in the PMP. 

Unifier will be used to handle everything in the project delivery process. From hiring and managing design consultant contracts, managing the review of design submissions to inputting the results of construction bids to manage progress payments and managing construction projects through processing shop drawings, requests for information and change orders. Project Managers, Contractors, Design Engineers, and Resident Engineers will all be using the Unifier system to manage and contribute to projects from design through construction and final close out.
