TRIRIGA Introduces Next-Generation Enterprise Project Management System with Release of Projects 8i
LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 22, 2003: TRIRIGA(R) INC., a leading provider of technology to centrally manage and control capital assets, today announced the immediate availability of TRIRIGA Projects(R) 8i.
This new, Web-based enterprise software system provides comprehensive project management capabilities to centralize all the data, processes, personnel, and resources associated with large-scale design, build, and construction operations. Additionally, Projects 8i offers true program management functionality, including planning, collaboration, risk analysis, design reviews, and checklist activities.
Projects 8i provides a collaborative platform for corporate organizations, architects, engineers, and other professional service groups to track and manage projects and programs. Accessible via Web browsers, the system serves as a central repository to capture all types of documents and CAD drawings, production schedules, billing and budget information, procurement details, vendors, contractors, and suppliers.
“Large-scale capital projects such as the construction of a hotel, office complex, or retail shopping center require close coordination of people, processes, and data,” explained Cameron Smith, Vice President and General Manager of TRIRIGA’s Projects Division. “The new version of Projects 8i delivers advanced features and functionality to help organizations improve their project and program management activities, and realize significant time and cost efficiencies.”
Providing comprehensive process management functionality, Projects 8i can take distributed tasks, such as meetings, RFI’s, submittals, changes, issues, and budgets, and assemble them into a step-by-step wizard. This provides a way to guide users through each step, and capture information within a structured framework.
Projects 8i offers a range of customization capabilities to easily design the interface and fields that are critical to an organization’s business processes and workflow. An integrated graphical workflow engine provides the capability to easily design and edit the system via a Web browser, without requiring programming.
As a centralized system, Projects 8i can aggregate multiple funding sources, and also allocate and record costs at both the program and project levels. This provides a powerful tool to track and manage budgets across each phase. Additionally, the system enables users to push and track program activities, variables, decisions, and correspondence across all projects – not just an executive-level roll-up of projects.
Recognizing the need for offline participation and collaboration, Projects 8i has the ability to import Microsoft Excel templates for all project documents and correspondence, and integrate them through manual importing or automated workflow. Additionally, Projects 8i can easily merge data into Microsoft Office applications for forms and reporting purposes.
Built on TRIRIGA’s powerful Intelligent Business System(TM) (IBS) platform, Projects 8i can be integrated with other third-party systems, such as accounting and financial applications. The IBS platform serves as the back-end engine that powers the functionality of Projects 8i, as well as TRIRIGA’s other industry-leading facilities management system, FacilityCenter 8i. Both solutions leverage the same database architecture, providing organizations with a scalable system to manage lifecycle projects, from construction and capital improvement, to facility management and operations.
