PLANTATION, Fla. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 29, 2016 — e-Builder, the leading cloud-based construction program management solution for capital projects, hosts its annual Elevate 2016 user conference this week, focused on customer appreciation and the exchange of industry best practices and new ideas. At the event today, the company announced updates to its industry-leading software, e-Builder Enterprise, as well as a new Community Portal where users can share tips and successes. Additionally, the company will announce the winners of its Innovators in Construction Award program at a ceremony tonight.
The following key e-Builder Enterprise updates will help increase productivity for owners and their teams through enhanced usability:
- Improved tools for reporting, including a “save as” capability to tweak reports for different audiences without altering the original
- An enhanced BIM offering that offers colors consistent with CAD designs, improved model loading and easy to understand summary reports for data intensive projects
- Updated dashboards to better demonstrate project performance
- A new map chart type, beneficial for demonstrating project locations nationally or globally
- An improved submittals process, which gives owners greater control over operations and reporting, while reducing human error
In concert with these updates, e-Builder announces the launch of its new Community Portal, which will serve as a free, interactive forum for all e-Builder Enterprise customers to share case studies, new ideas and ask questions about the software. Current e-Builder Enterprise users will have immediate access to the Portal to interact with other users, learn directly from e-Builder product managers and conduct self-service within forums. This Community Portal replaces an older version and now includes gamification techniques to share ideas and post files and images of successful projects.
“e-Builder Elevate is the perfect platform for unveiling these new technologies, as the conference is all about enabling and connecting the owner community,” said Chris Bell, vice president and program management evangelist, e-Builder. “These updates demonstrate e-Builder’s commitment to customer-centric product development, from our feedback-driven e-Builder Enterprise improvements to the collaborative Community Portal where users can gather virtually to learn, share insights and meet other industry influencers.”
In addition to these new offerings, the company will announce the winners of this year’s Innovators in Construction Award, recognizing owner organizations that demonstrate excellence in using technology to drive substantial building project budget and schedule savings. Last year’s award honored the University of Southern California for its use of e-Builder Enterprise to support the largest infrastructure expansion in its history.
