Original Press Release:
Security, Contract Management and Costing Capabilities Enhanced in Primavera Expedition(r) 9.0
PHILADELPHIA, PA, May 5, 2003 - The latest release of Primavera Expedition is the easiest-to-use project controls solution available today. Expedition 9.0 - a fully browser-based software solution - provides timely and accurate information for enhanced team collaboration and better and faster decision-making.
Through its role-based interface, all internal and external project members - field superintendents, project engineers, project managers, general contractors, subcontractors, architects and clients - can quickly understand changes, status and cost. This information helps streamline the construction process and move projects forward. Expedition 9.0 can be used within a company's network as well as securely over the Internet, providing all project participants around the globe with easy access to project information.
"In a competitive industry where the relationship between costs and quick project delivery is critical, Primavera Expedition 9.0 provides a number of key advantages," comments James Uzdavinis, Project Controls Manager, Jordan, Jones & Goulding. "The enhanced collaboration enables more timely responses to critical and potentially schedule-delaying field issues. Because contractors know who is accountable for certain key items, there are no surprises in the overall project. Expedition 9.0 expedites the construction process, without any unnecessary costs."
"We have applied our 20 years of project management experience to deliver the most intuitive and comprehensive project controls software solution available in the marketplace," said Joel M. Koppelman, CEO of Primavera Systems, Inc. "The browser-based interface of Expedition 9.0 streamlines the entire construction process while providing a lower cost of ownership to our customers."
Information in Expedition 9.0 is protected by a set of comprehensive security options which help create custom profiles for each project team member - including third parties such as designers, engineers and subcontractors - to allow access to Expedition without any concern of exposing confidential information.
Other key features and benefits of Expedition 9.0 include:
o True Contract Management
All related contract information, such as requisitions, change orders, submittals and insurance information, is automatically summarized for quick status reports. View and create related contract documents directly in the contract module. There is no longer a need to search for individual documents or details since all contract information is conveniently located in one location.
o Enhanced Costing Capabilities
Costs associated with contracts, change orders, proposals and trends can be tracked down to the line-item level. Expedition 9.0 can be integrated with accounting and ERP systems to offer seamless communication between project controls and accounting.
