Meridian Systems announces record growth for Prolog v7.5 in 2005
FOLSOM, Calif. (February 8, 2006) - Meridian Systems, the industry leader in project management software within the construction industry, announced today that Prolog Manager 2005 unit license sales grew 60% over 2004, record year-over-year growth in the company’s history. These results are attributed to several new construction firms and building owners that are adopting Prolog version 7.5, which was released in September 2005. Meridian also has identified a trend among organizations that are standardizing on one project management solution to gain better efficiencies.
According to the 2006 National Construction-Technology Survey from Constructech Magazine, 94% of firms rated project management software as highly important, with nearly 50% indicating they expect to use the software on all projects in 2005. Traditionally however, construction organizations with decentralized operations wind up using and supporting multiple project management solutions, lacking one corporate standard.
Tracking projects in different individual project management systems creates several organizational inefficiencies. Key disadvantages include no ability to roll up all projects at the executive or owner level; no executive visibility into “at risk” projects; no standard reporting system; no consistent or common best practices with operations staff; large inefficiencies in transferring staff from one project to another; and added training costs to support multiple systems.
“We are seeing lots of opportunity for Prolog from existing customers wanting to make corporate standard decisions, as well as new customer growth in 2006 both within the AEC and building owner markets,” said John Bodrozic, Meridian president and cofounder. “As a result, Meridian remains committed to keeping Prolog as the market leading solution for construction project management for capital intensive industries.”
Over its 12-year existence, Prolog has become the industry standard for successful construction project delivery, providing a complete project management software solution for more than 8,500 construction companies, engineering firms, and public and private building owners. New Meridian customers that adopted Prolog as their corporate standard in 2005 include:
Construction and CM Firms:
- Alberici Constructors
- Moss Construction
- Ryan Construction
- URS Construction Services
Owners and Real Estate Developers:
- Ambling Companies
- Miami Dade Public Water
- Tishman Speyer
- Turnberry Associates
Meridian customers who standardize on Prolog as their corporate project management solution do so to take advantage of several key benefits, including:
- Instant executive/owner level rollup of all projects
- Executive/owner visibility of “problem” projects
- One standard reporting system
- One system for consistency and efficiency
- Consistency and common best practices with operations staff
- Efficient in transferring staff from one project to another
