Auburn U to Manage Project Portfolio with Skire Software

Auburn University has licensed project portfolio management software from Skire to provide real-time information for capital program management.

The university's Facilities Design and Construction division chose Unifier to automate the collection of project proposals and manage estimates and funding, scheduling, document management, and dashboard reporting. The application is delivered as software-as-a-service. The institution, located in Auburn, AL, has about 24,500 students.

"Accurate, timely information is the key to effective management of our extensive capital program portfolio," said David DiPofi, director of design and construction services. "Sophisticated business intelligence and reporting transparency are features that we want to deliver to our departmental clients while simultaneously providing automated detailed cost, scheduling, and document management capabilities to our project managers."

A key feature of the new system, according to the university, is its ability to deliver exception reporting across the university's project portfolio with executive-level dashboards. The institution hopes to simplify the division's ability to disseminate information to multiple project participants in real time.
