ADAMS Management Services Boosts Its Program Management Capabilities with e-Builder Software

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) January 13th, 2012 -- e-Builder, the number one provider of owner-centric capital project and program management software to hospitals, announced today that ADAMS Management Services (ADAMS), one of the top program management firms focused on healthcare and health sciences facilities, will leverage e-Builder to enhance their consulting services, which include Project Initiation and Organization; Process Development, Management and Optimization; Master Program Budget Development and Control; Cash Flow Analysis and Planning; Project Documentation; and Executive Reporting.

ADAMS wanted to capitalize on their collective knowledge with a web-based, centralized project and portfolio management platform. To meet this goal, they determined that e-Builder Enterprise is the best choice to replace their existing project information systems and help their teams focus more of their time and resources on projects. Melissa Threadgill, Project Manager, said “we know there are a lot of other software providers, but e-Builder provided a web-based, owner-centric solution that let us manage a program beyond just the construction piece”.

e-Builder will help ADAMS provide more efficient project oversight of client programs through a combination of e-Builder’s Cost, Documents, Reports, and Schedule Modules. These provide a flexible platform that ADAMS can leverage to define project management processes in a methodic, measurable, and efficient manner. Because information is centralized, clients benefit by having the ability to access reports that provide current and accurate data about their project, to ensure projects stay within the defined budget and schedule.
Jeff Christmann, COO of ADAMS, said “The key is that we’ve got a lot of processes in place to manage our projects. e-Builder centralizes everything so that we have one hub to access information. The Executive Reporting features allow us to pull project status information for complete oversight of our projects and make it easier for us to tailor information to fit our clients’ needs”.

ADAMS works with several e-Builder clients, including UT Southwestern Medical Center. “When we work with an e-Builder client, we can get to work faster and incorporate existing client processes or reports to complement each other,” added Christmann.

Guillermo Ramos, Director of CIP at UT Southwestern (UTSW), said “It is definitely a plus to have a Program Manager on our team that clearly understands the importance of centralizing project information, is committed to communicating through the e-Builder platform, and is proficient in using e-Builder. ADAMS’ support of UTSW’s project communication policy has been a key factor in our successful implementation of using the program in the new University Tower.”

Jonathan Antevy, e-Builder CEO, commented “With over 55 Healthcare systems and more than 1,000 hospitals using e-Builder, the addition of another leading healthcare program manager demonstrates our ongoing commitment to achieve a quicker time-to-value for our healthcare clients”.
