Port of Olympia Teams with e-Builder to Eliminate Spreadsheets

"Prior to e-Builder, it was all a manual database entry so we are now saving a lot of time."Contract AdministratorLinda Shilley

Reduced the time spent entering project information into spreadsheets or databases by 50%, the average document retrieval time is now less than 3 minutes.

  • Manage project budgets across one project or entire capital program.
Results
  • Phone calls and emails inquiring about status of contracts, projects, invoices, budgets, etc. to the Contract Administrators have been reduced by 70% and will continue to decrease as additional staff is trained.

  • The average submittal review time with e-Builder is 7 days or less.
  • Reduced the time spent entering project information in to spreadsheets or databases by 50%, the average document retrieval time is now less than 3 minutes.
