Chicago Transit Authority Selects e-Builder

Chicago Transit Authority Selects e-Builder as Their Web-based Capital Project Management System

e-Builder, a recognized leader in the development of capital program management software, announced today that the Chicago Transit Authority has launched e-Builder Enterprise to manage its current capital program, totaling $800 million. e-Builder will help CTA manage and automate business processes that include: contract change orders, submittal reviews, and RFIs. It will also be used for cost management and controls, cashflow forecasting, document management, and cross-project executive reporting.

The Chicago Transit Authority is a municipal corporation created under the Metropolitan Transit Authority Act. The CTA operates the nation’s second largest public transportation system and covers the City of Chicago and 40 surrounding suburbs. The CTA, an early adopter in applying web-based construction project management software to a major public capital program, began using a system in 2001. The agency’s expanding needs made it necessary to upgrade -their system. Requirements called for a system to provide accurate, current information regarding program and project budgets and change orders to proactively control project costs, and provide for rapid deployment within 6 months.

Leah Dawson Mooney, Chief of Capital Construction Financials, CTA Infrastructure, said "CTA had over 10 years experience with web-based construction project management systems when we issued a request for proposals for a replacement system. Based on lessons learned in that experience, CTA developed a comprehensive list of requirements for a new system. e-Builder was selected based on best fitting these requirements, and we are thrilled to be working with them."

“We’re proud that an organization like CTA, which has been a recognized leader in the use of technology to improve capital program management, chose e-Builder” said Jonathan Antevy, e-Builder CEO. “We’re also glad that our rapid deployment model will allow them to see a faster return on their investment” added Antevy.
