Port of Portland Partners with Aurigo to Automate $1 Billion Portfolio of Capital Programs and ProjectsThe Port of Portland, Oregon, America’s fourth largest export port on the west coast, has selected Aurigo Masterworks as its new capital project portfolio management software that will be deployed over the cloud. The Port of Portland encompasses four marine terminals, five industrial parks and three airports, including PDX. The Port’s industrial and business parks are home to over 300 firms, which generate in excess of 31,000 jobs. The Port’s capital programs over the five-yearplanning cycle exceeds one billion dollars.
The Port was using multiple disparate systems to manage various portions of each project. While JD Edwards is the Port’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, The Port was using Primavera ProSight for capital budgeting, Primavera P6 for scheduling and Microsoft SharePoint for document archival. Using a disjointed method was inefficient and left the project team vulnerable to errors—particularly because many of those processes were executed manually using Microsoft Excel.
