e-Builder.net 800.580.9322 info@e-builder.net | support@e-builder.net Port of Olympia Teams with e-Builder to Eliminate Spreadsheets CHALLENGES § Excessive amounts of spreadsheets being used within the organization made finding and retrieving information difficult and time-consuming. § The Port was spending too much time with manual database entry into multiple spreadsheets. § Limited visibility into budgets during different phases of a project. SOLUTION § The Port gained one consolidated place for all information, whether it was documents, contracts, billings, spreadsheets, etc. § The Port can now create and track budgets during different phases of project: planning, permitting, construction, and closeout. § Ability to manage project budgets across one project or the 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. § e-Builder provides instant visibility, across all projects and phases enabling budget reviews, change management and approvals online. § 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. § e-Builder eliminated 5 spreadsheets and an Access database. Linda Shilley, Contract Administrator "Prior to e-Builder, it was all a manual database entry so we are now saving a lot of time." CASE STUDY GOVERNMENT
