COMPLETE PROJECT KNOWLEDGE INSTANT ACCESS AND A COLLABORATION

Imagine that, with just a few keystrokes, you could get instant access into all there is to know about all current projects: Glance through milestones to ensure everything remains on schedule, retrieve KPI’s to see if they’re being met, and easily review committed and projected project costs to ensure financials stay on target.

Imagine still that every needed detail about every capital project and real estate improvement is always accessible at your fingertips. When someone has questions, you have the answers, derived from accurate, real-time information, resulting in better collaboration and improved results across the entire project portfolio.

From a small one-month facility project to next year’s office relocation, Project Center makes daily processes and planning faster and more efficient with templates that incorporate industry best practices. You can also take detailed project management one step further by configuring a project workflow and sending or awarding Requests for Proposal (RFP) to approved vendors using the integrated RFP Tracker.

REQUESTS FOR PROPOSAL, AWARDED VENDOR

Project Center makes the RFP process easier than ever, with dedicated navigation and action items within the RFP detail section.
