The problem - What was the main reason to choose ScheduleReader?
Schedule analysis is a critical part of our company’s portfolio. We review over a dozen projects monthly ranging in size from $8M to over $200M for the cost of construction. They complexity of the projects for the most part are new build hospitals, and some are renovations with a new addition. Time is a very important factor for the clients to know when they will be able to move into the new facility. And the transition from old to new take months of planning. We needed a program that was user friendly for our staff and quick to get the answers.
The solution - How did ScheduleReader help you?
As mentioned above, we needed a program that was quick, not cumbersome and easy to use. ScheduleReader is a very useful tool but somewhat cost prohibitive, and very large. We needed a program that we could take to the jobsite and review and update the status and have the result by the time we return to office for a meeting with stakeholders that’s where ScheduleReader out performs all competitors.
The outcome - What did you improve (results)?
The schedules from ScheduleReader were simple to view for the stakeholders, as often we had to put it on an overhead projector for all to see and we could move about in the program quickly and this showed them where the project was headed.
We are very pleased with the ScheduleReader as it has added the flexibility for project reviews and with the new update in V4.02 this enables us to present the finding in a more detailed presentation.
