Through its dashboards, Unifier lets businesses manage information flows through every phase of a program or project -- from planning and design, through procurement, project execution, and into operations and maintenance. Meanwhile, multi-user access, which is controlled by role-based administration, improves efficiency, simplifies access to information and makes it easier to deploy project and cost controls, the Menlo Park, California-based vendor said.
Unifier Web-based project management software features modules for comprehensive capital planning, cost control, schedule control, document control and collaboration, bid management, contract management, and business process management.
The facilities management module can control a company's assets, space and facilities management resources; it uses business process automation to streamline management activities, thereby saving time and maximizing resource use, the vendor said.
Skire's facilities management offering includes planning tools for optimized management of future facilities, monitoring tools for ongoing and new projects, automated alerts for critical maintenance items, tracking tools for assets, services and vendors, and processing tools for service requests, work orders and moves.
Unifier's real estate management module, meanwhile, can perform needs analysis and space surveys, track cost allocations and projections, track resources and space utilization, manage leased properties, monitor maintenance budgets, manage decommissioning and asset removal and send automated alerts on critical dates, the vendor said.
Lastly, Unifier's project portfolio management solution ensures an organization's IT projects, assets and resources are being optimized. The solution provides visibility into a company’s entire project portfolio, improving executive and individual visibility into all or parts of a portfolio, as well has the ability to track costs. In addition, this Web-based project portfolio management software is designed to help balance competing demands for resources, provide project performance and trends analysis, allocate resources, creation of repeatable processes and dynamic workflows, and manage vendor relationships, according to Skire.
