e-Builder is the only organization delivering a complete construction program management solution that combines cost, schedule, workflow and document management with built-in reporting and 3rd party integration tools.  Unlike other organizations that try linking two or more completely different products, e-Builder Enterprise is a single, complete solution designed at its core from the owner’s point of view.

In the real world, project costs and schedules are interrelated.  Following a natural progression, e-Builder Enterprise will help you manage your construction projects throughout their entire lifecycle – from planning and design all the way through construction and operations.

 



Planning
Whether your budget is in the billions or just one million, the goal is the same – make informed decisions about which projects to include in your capital plan, when to execute them and how to do so cost effectively.  Unfortunately, even the most seasoned Planning Managers admit the process is cumbersome and full of risks.
