Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) July 31, 2007
e-Builder, the leading provider of collaborative project management solutions, announced today that Banner Health, one of the largest health care systems in the United States, has implemented e-Builder Enterprise 6.0 to manage its capital program. e-Builder will serve as the single integrated project information system to manage cost, schedule, and scope on its projects.
Late last year, Banner Health embarked on a $1.5 billion expansion plan encompassing renovation of existing buildings and construction of new facilities in response to growing demand in the seven states it serves. The magnitude of the expansion plan was one of the drivers behind Banner's selection of a program management system, placing greater emphasis on the need to improve existing processes. This system will help streamline communications and information management for improved project planning, execution, and delivery.
Banner evaluated several solutions, but selected e-Builder because it had a user-friendly interface that was the most intuitive and easiest to use while still providing the industry specific capabilities to manage a complex planning, design, and construction program from the owner's perspective. In addition, e-Builder's software-as-a-service model provided Banner Health with faster deployment than traditional systems, and the ability to regularly incorporate ongoing user feedback to improve the product.
Kip Edwards, Banner Health's System Vice President - Design and Construction, said "One thing I value in e-Builder is the continuous improvement we've seen in the product since adoption, and in the short time our team has been using it."
