Stevens Hospital Selects Construction Project Management Software from Meridian for US$50 Million Expansion Project
Meridian partner P7 Integration delivers implementation services for Prolog SaaS solution
FOLSOM, Calif. (June 11, 2009) -- Meridian Systems, the Plan-Build-Operate (PBO) technology solutions leader for project-based organizations, announced today that Stevens Hospital of Edmonds, Washington, has selected ProjectTalk® to standardize its construction management processes. ProjectTalk, Meridian's online project management and collaboration solution based on Prolog® software, provides robust functionality in a Software as a Service (SaaS) environment. Stevens Hospital worked directly with P7 Integration, a Meridian Systems Value Added Reseller (VAR), to implement ProjectTalk to manage the upcoming US$50 million expansion project.
Stevens Hospital typically has more than a dozen projects in process at any given time with approximately 10 percent dedicated to new construction. The current expansion project will add a new, two-story Emergency Room (ER) building with 32 ER beds, 30 acute care beds as well as underground parking, totaling 75,000 square feet.
As a public healthcare organization serving Edmonds, Washington and its surrounding communities, Stevens Hospital worked with P7 Integration's professional services to implement ProjectTalk. The online project management solution is designed to manage complex capital projects more effectively, improve construction project accountability and provide the visibility needed for an expansion project of this size. P7 Integration sells the Prolog suite of applications and provides implementation, training and consulting services.
"The hospital's goals for the implementation included standardizing on one centralized location for all project data, increased project team collaboration, ability to access current project data at any time and status updates for key personnel," said Stefan Rehnfeldt, Stevens Hospital's construction manager. "ProjectTalk is a crucial system for effectively managing vast amounts of information to keep the project on track. In addition, we are using ProjectTalk to successfully manage schedule tasks, project budgets, and document control."
"ProjectTalk was selected by Steven's Hospital because of its ability to bring effective project management to a project of this size," said Steve King, president, P7 Integration. "Additionally, since ProjectTalk is an online project management system, users can access the power of Prolog software on a convenient, subscription basis, making it the optimal solution to manage smaller projects as well."
Based on Prolog, ProjectTalk is a full-featured online project management and collaboration solution to which users subscribe and access via the Internet.
