Elevate 2017

In just 8 weeks, many of you will join us at Elevate 2017!

Twelve years ago, the idea of bringing our clients together to learn and connect with one another was new for us.  We worked tirelessly to develop valuable classes, content and organizing network events that would add to the value of being a e-Builder customer.  That first conference was small with about 30 attendees. This year, we are expecting 400 attendees from all over the country. Elevate has not only grown in size, but over the years we have added some exciting components that make it the largest conference for capital program owners. 

Here are just a few highlights of what we have planned for you this year!
1. Keynote Speaker: Eric Boles, Former NFL Football Player and president and founder of the leadership firm, The Game Changers, Inc., will share his “Moving to Great” presentation; addressing the pressures we all face, and the demand to “up” our game in our professional and personal life.  
2. Innovators in Construction Award: This year marks the 3rd award ceremony of the Innovators in Construction Award. The momentum of this award continues to strengthen as our clients share their stories of great success and innovation. 
3. e-Builder Central: This will be your one-stop-shop to meet with a Support Analyst, Account Manager or Business Analyst. Test out the BIM Oculus, demo the new and improved Schedule module and much more!
4. Over 20 e-Builder certification classes: Our fan favorite certification classes help build your e-Builder product knowledge and skill set, while earning credits towards your e-Builder Certified Professional (eBCP) certificate. 
5. 24 track sessions: As always, we have a great line-up of exceptional speakers from e-Builder’s product team, internal industry experts and customers.
We hope you’ll join us and see for yourself what all the buzz is about. Our team is working hard to make Elevate 2017 the greatest conference yet!

Tip of the Month

By: Vernon Vick, e-Builder Sr. Business Analyst 
Did you know, an e-Builder Administrator can research why e.g. a user, reason code, or process layout no longer exists in e-Builder? An Audit Log (report) will assist the e-Builder Administrator with this research and solve the mystery.
Here is your step by step guide to setting up this report:
1. Proceed to the Reports Module and click on “Add Report.”
2. Select “Administrative Reports”, then “Audit Log”, and click on “Next.”
3. Select “Tabular Report” or “Summary Report” (if grouping is needed) and click on “Next.”
4. Select the fields you want to include in the report and then click on “Next.”
5. No aggregate functions are needed for this report; please proceed to the next step.
6. The default Column Order and Sort Order can be changed if needed and then click on “Next.”
7. Filters can be specified in this step if you need to narrow down to e.g. a certain Module, or Impact and then click on “Save As.” 
8. Enter a Report Name, specify Permissions, select a Report Folder and then click on “Save and Run Report.”
9. The Audit Report is generated as shown below.

ENR Webinar: Reducing Risk and Improving Performance 

Running the RISK of being over budget, behind schedule, or misaligned on stakeholder expectations is a Capital Construction Owner’s worst fear.   
Unfortunately, studies show that most owners fall victim to these risks which not only negatively impact their bottom line, but tarnish their public brand and image. 
This webinar covers some of the risks and challenges that Capital Construction Owners face on their projects. Nine key characteristics are uncovered that top owners take into action to improve their program performance. Learn how you can facilitate this improvement process through controls, consolidation, cost management, and standardization throughout an owners organization.
Join ENR for this live webinar on Thursday, August 17th at 2pm EST. 



Highlights from the Elevate Capital Projects Symposium 

Owners of capital projects are navigating a challenging dichotomy. On one side of the challenge is the risk that arises from increased project complexity and evolving project delivery methods. On the other side are the organizational demands to do more with less and improve reliability. To address these challenges, This Spring, e-Builder hit the road for the second annual Elevate Capital Projects Symposiums. In this multi-city seminar series, e-Builder brought together the industry’s leading experts to discuss industry insights, best practices and the construction industry’s top economic report on construction and future spending trends. 
e-Builder led symposiums in New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles with over 150 owners.
Check out the video highlights from New York and Chicago
