e-Builder, the leading provider of web-based capital program and project management software, announced today that Jonathan Antevy, e-Builder co-founder and CEO, will present alongside Mr. Guillermo Ramos, Director Capital Improvement Project Services at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) during Vanderbilt University's Third Annual Healthcare Design & Construction Workshop on Thursday, August 13, 2009.
The presentation will focus on the benefits achieved by using online project management information systems to enable business process automation, tighter cost controls, and unprecedented visibility throughout the facility lifecycle. Mr. Ramos will discuss how e-Builder's software provided UTSW with a low risk, rapidly deployed system they could use to streamline information management for their entire capital program.
The discussion will also outline the ways in which e-Builder's integrated system is helping the project management teams gain tighter control over capital project budgets, automate the change management process, maintain visibility into their projects' status, and improve collaboration across all project stakeholders. Mr. Antevy will moderate the session and highlight the cost savings and business process improvements that leading North American healthcare organizations like The Methodist Hospital, Banner Health, and Memorial Hermann have derived from e-Builder.
