Leading University in West Virginia Modernizes Systems for Effective Cost Control and Facilities Management

University project management information system reviewGaea is pleased to announce that a leading university in West Virginia recently went live with their Primavera Unifier cost controls and facilities management system. This new solution integrates Unifier with the university ERP system, procurement system, and service portal. The user base includes facilities, roads and grounds, custodial, shops, building supervisors, technicians, and warehouse staff.

Primavera Unifier is now the university’s central repository for all CAPEX and OPEX spending throughout the construction-operation lifecycle. All campus capital spend (from inception to commissioning) and every facility (under construction and completed) is tracked in Unifier. Preventive and corrective work orders and all facility assets are tracked in Unifier’s FREM module.

“This 14-month project involved close coordination with multiple cross-functional partners within the university, and complex bidirectional integrations with Unifier,” said Jyotsna Bharadwaj, Gaea’s university project manager. “This implementation is the first and largest Unifier FREM solution with an active user base. Our process here will be used as a model for future implementations at higher-education institutions.”
