A new addition to the MANAGEservices offerings from Bentley Systems, www.bentley.com, Exton, Pa., is expected to help construction managers at engineering/construction management firms and infrastructure owner organizations with capital projects to easily reduce risk and staff hours, improve information quality, and provide owners with realtime visibility into costs.
The offering is available from Bentley through its acquisition of the business of Oakland, Calif.-based EADOC, a provider of construction management cloud services. EADOC, explains Bentley, empowers facility owners to increase ROI (return on investment) through faster project completions, easily monitor project financial performance, and maintain detailed construction records without administrative staff.
EADOC enables construction management professionals to track construction project documentation including design clarifications, inspectors’ daily reports, special inspections, memos, action items, deficiency items, and schedules. EADOC also integrates project cost controls, including budget, funding sources, contracts, schedule of values, pay estimates, change requests, and change orders, with this project information.
“We welcome the EADOC team, including founder Eric Law, to Bentley,” says Harry Vitelli, senior vice president, construction and field, Bentley Systems. “Eric’s expertise will be invaluable as we advance ProjectWise for more comprehensive project delivery. In parallel, we will be extending EADOC’s information mobility, for instance, through Bentley mobile apps including Navigator Mobile and ProjectWise Worksite.”
EADOC solution benefits include improved accessibility—keeping construction projects up to date with realtime information; accountability—providing faster return on investment; productivity—enabling time savings of up to 30%; efficiency—reducing costs; and risk mitigation—tracking and controlling risk to mitigate cost and schedule impacts.
“As a former member of the Bentley Developer Network, our team is extremely pleased to now be part of Bentley,” remarks Eric Law. “Together we can take information mobility across design and construction workflows, as well as into operations, to new levels for small and large organizations alike.”
