Computers for Construction Tradeshow brings awards for MPS and its clients
(Folsom, Calif.) - November 1, 2002 -- Meridian Project Systems (MPS) was honored with three Enabler Awards during the third annual ConstrucTECH VISION Awards ceremony held last week in conjunction with the 2002 Computers for Construction trade show in Dallas, Texas. MPS received these awards for its project management solutions and the enabling capabilities they provided to its clients Soltek Pacific General Contractors, San Diego, Calif.; Turner Construction Co., New York, N.Y.; and Clark Realty Builders, Bethesda, Md.
The ConstrucTECH VISION Awards honor companies who understand that technology can improve building processes while impacting ROI. ConstrucTECH Enabler awards recognize the software providers that offer innovative solutions to help these companies achieve their goals. According to Peggy Smedley, ConstrucTECH’s editorial director and publisher, "This year's Vision Award winners are a testament to the power of that vision and are shining examples for the rest of the construction and facility management industries to consider these solutions for their own businesses. These leading-edge organizations have made significant investments in the latest technology tools and are reaping a variety of benefits as a result. We salute these industry leaders who have risen above the crowd and achieved their visions through the use of technology."
Three MPS customers were awarded with Gold Vision Awards: Turner Construction Co., New York, N.Y., for innovation in the Commercial/Industrial category with yearly revenue of more than $500 million; Soltek Pacific General Contractors, San Diego, Calif., in the Commercial/Industrial category with profits of $251 million to $500 million; and Multi-Family Builder Clark Realty Builders, Bethesda, Md.
Over the past year, Soltek Pacific General Contractors, with the help of their technology and MPS Channel Partner Rotech Consulting, has used Prolog Manager, to speed project completion and improve communication between their project teams. “Before using Prolog Manager, each job required three administrators and a week of project set-up time. With Prolog we use one administrator for all our sites, share project data company-wide, and empower our site superintendents for independent site set-up. We’ve seen a measurable increase in efficiency while decreasing budget overrun,” says Brandon Richie, Project Manager for Soltek Pacific General Contractors.
MPS is pleased to receive one of the few awards to acknowledge the impact of technology on the speed of construction. “MPS feels extremely honored to be selected for the third year in a row," said John Bodrozic, president and co-founder of MPS. “We are committed to providing our clients with comprehensive project management solutions that improve customer service and foster growth.”
