Project Description

We centralized and standardized AEC project management between Seibel, Buzzsaw and other systems for a 20,000+ member team. Our solution eliminated redundant data entrysaved hundreds of hours of timereduced data errors by 200%, and extended the lifecycle of existing platforms by years. The Challenge: Many know HingePoint by now as an expert in Project Management (PM), program management, Portfolio project management, and PMO’s (Project Management Offices). For this client, an old PM system had lived 5 years beyond the technology it ran on, leaving them with few options. They had a staggering portfolio of over 3000 Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) projects going on globally, involving more than 300 franchisees, 4000 vendors, and over 20,000 team members in the AEC projects. To track and manage it all, it had to be standardized, centralized, and a wide range of tools needed to be created for PMs, account managers, and executives. The Solution: HingePoint started by looking for a solution in the enterprise PM space, but a new enterprise platform was expensive and a challenge. Instead, we evaluated and prototyped how we could extend an existing CRM with some PM modules to integrate the franchisees, by adding their construction portfolios into the same system. We used Oracle Seibel modules to test and prototype the solution around newly created standardized business processes. We created unique tools in Seibel to house the entire project planning data that tracked and managed milestones, tasks, schedules, budgets, and people across franchise project portfolios. We then created custom GUI interfaces, reports, templates, checklists, document attachments, and other key data need to plan, track, and manage the portfolio of AEC projects and real estate assets. The Relationship: This solution is still in production today as the system of record for all franchise portfolio management. HingePoint has also extended it by integrating Siebel with Buzzsaw documents, PeopleSoft financial feeds, and even interfacing with other tools, including Google Earth, to plot the portfolio on the globe.

Project Description

We created more effective data searching in Buzzsaw, utilizing Google Earth for regional searching functionality and brought over 90% time savings related to document search.
The Challenge: A Top global brand franchise, called HingePoint frustrated with how hard it is to find files, documents, and photos (of their over 3000 properties) on Buzzsaw. At the time, the company’s Architecture & Construction employees spent up to 50% of their time searching for already existing corporate documents! The Vision: They needed to be able to quickly search through over 3 Terabytes of data, 1 million documents, and 3000 projects on Buzzsaw. They also wanted to provide a user experience via Google Earth with the functionality to search and navigate all company projects using the globe—gaining the ability to find documents by seeing them plotted in 3D. In essence, they wanted a custom Google Earth experience, using Google Earth to not only view properties, but also locate and access documents from Buzzsaw. The Solution: HingePoint came alongside this worldwide corporation to stand up the first North American instance of Google Earth enterprise: a private version of Google Earth, secure with the company’s Buzzsaw and CRM data. We fulfilled their vision, enabling them to use Google Earth to search Buzzsaw files and folders and find documents via key search terms or geographically, thus reducing the time needed to find files in Buzzsaw. Respecting security was critical to this project’s success and we ensured that all data was fully secured based on users rights, even within Google Earth. This solution created a huge advantage for the client’s architectects, designers, and construction teams, helping them search, find, and visualize project related documents in the context of Google Earth all while improving native Buzzsaw search performance. The Relationship: Today, HingePoint continues to work with the global brand to improve the data search and integration of mapping search tools as well as clean and optimally tag dirty data and files so they can be easily found. We also continue to use our findings to figure out how users search and improve internal search tools within Buzzsaw as well as leverage Google Earth’s features and functionality.
