"Our project managers spent considerable time tracking the change order process," says Rice. "Who has it? Where is it? The transparency of e-Builder shows us exactly where we are in the process. Everyone here loves the workflow diagram. We have also reduced the time it takes to process payments by 30-40%. We take a lot of pride in paying vendors on time and e-Builder allows us to meet our goals." The team also likes the ability to share the folder structure both internally and externally. This came in particularly handy when the team looked to share its OFE brochure, a comprehensive binder of approved medical equipment from MRI machines and CT scanners to ice machines. Rice explains, "We used to have to scan the brochure to a disk which was then mailed to the general contractor as a reference for equipment dimensions. Preparing this document took A LOT of time. Now we have it set up within a designated folder structure in e-Builder. This allows us to email an embedded link to our General Contractors. This simple step is way more efficient." The centralized project management system has also helped us track money that is allotted to HCA's United Kingdom division for projects. "The money used to go into a black hole of overspending, with no visibility to what they were doing with it. With e-Builder, we have budget controls and full visibility. Corporate trusts us to see that every group is operating as they should," he says. CLEAR BENEFITS With the time and money savings, HCA has been able to reinvest in its capital program, charitable organizations and training and development programs. "In 2015, corporate charged us with saving 10% across the organization. Thus far, we have saved close to 5% or $3.4 million," concludes Rice. "Without e-Builder, we couldn't track any of these savings quickly or accurately. All of the savings go back into our capital program and to funding corporate initiatives. Our goal is to keep finding new ways to improve efficiency, transparency and connections with our external partners."
