Initiative Will Deliver New Project Controls for All Campus Projects and Integrate with Oracle PeopleSoft Financial System
MENLO PARK, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 27, 2012 — Skire, Inc. ( www.skire.com), the leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for managing capital projects, facilities and real estate, today announced that the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley), has chosen Skire Unifier as its new solution for managing capital construction projects across the campus. Unifier was selected after a thorough evaluation of several systems.
Established in 1868, UC Berkeley is the flagship campus of the University of California system and one of the world’s leading research institutions, housing 14 colleges and schools and serving 33,000 students. The Capital Projects Project Management Unit manages the campus’s capital program portfolio – from small renovation and landscape projects, to major capital projects such as new facilities and infrastructure.
UC Berkeley sought to quickly replace their decade-old system with an out-of-the-box solution providing flexibility, advanced reporting, and the ability to integrate seamlessly with their Oracle PeopleSoft financial system. The campus also required a system that can extend beyond capital projects to include managing work orders and real estate functions as part of a facility lifecycle solution for UC Berkeley as the owner-operator.
UC Berkeley chose Unifier’s pre-packaged solution for Capital Project and Program Management. Imbued with robust functionality stemming from industry domain expertise and over 10 years of collaboration with world-class customers, Skire’s Unifier solution allows the campus to implement rapidly while maintaining the flexibility to support Capital Project’s internal workflows, the scalability to add functionality over time, and the ability to evolve going forward.
“Unifier enables UC Berkeley to automate a variety of critical processes, meet their reporting needs, manage funding, and eliminate the data entry redundancies they are currently experiencing,” said Olivier Gachot, Executive Vice president of Worldwide Sales at Skire. “UC Berkeley recognizes that our pre-packaged Capital Project and Program Management solution allows them to get up and running rapidly and cost effectively without compromising the flexibility and scalability they require.”
