Integrated project management software provides tangible cost savings to leading healthcare provider

e-Builder, the leading provider of integrated capital program and project management software, announced today that Memorial Hermann, one of the largest healthcare systems in Houston, has deployed e-Builder Enterprise 7 as their standard enterprise-wide program and project management system. Memorial Hermann is using e-Builder Enterprise 7 to execute over $500 Million in capital projects. e-Builder's integrated cost, schedule, workflow, document management and reporting capabilities are reducing overall project costs and eliminating overruns.

By consolidating 4 disparate systems with duplicate data into e-Builder, Memorial Hermann was able to reduce the effort required to collect and enter information while at the same time providing Memorial Hermann's project management and facility services teams with easy access to uniform, accurate, and timely data. This is improving decision making from planning through construction. Memorial Hermann is also leveraging e-Builder's unified reporting system to automatically generate monthly operating reports (MOR), cash flow projections, schedules and project reports that used to require manual reconciliation.

e-Builder is integrated with Lawson Financials, Memorial Hermann's accounting software, to eliminate the costs and errors associated with duplicate data entry. The Memorial Hermann team now has easy access to more timely and accurate information shortening the decision approval process. For example, the vendor payment approval process has been reduced from 2 weeks to 2 days on average, eliminating late fees and improving vendor relations.

Memorial Hermann took advantage of the unique deployment capabilities of e-Builder Enterprise 7. The system was deployed in modules in accordance with e-Builder's proprietary process so that it was up and running, generating a return on investment in less than 3 months. The e-Builder integration toolbox was utilized to provide a real-time interface with Lawson financials. The entire system including the interface with Lawson was deployed in less than 6 months providing Memorial Hermann with a rapid return on investment.
