Virginia Beach improves visibility, speed and project controls across the capital planning and construction lifecycle
The City of Virginia Beach:
- $3.2 billion capital funds over six years
- Population 450,000
- Over 200 city parks encompass 4,000+ acres
For many years the Department of Public Works and the public utility teams in the City of Virginia Beach used a combination of custom Windows applications and Excel spreadsheets to track capital projects and contracts. They struggled with duplicate data entry, data errors and time-consuming manual processes.
The evaluation team at the City of Virginia Beach evaluated nine products and selected Aurigo Masterworks Cloud over e-Builder, Aconex and PMWeb. They now have a total of 700 internal users, consultants and contractors using Masterworks Cloud for capital planning, managing construction projects, tracking funds and contract administration.
Masterworks Cloud was integrated with the city’s existing web portal, records management and financial systems, giving teams a single solution for end-to-end capital project success.
Using Aurigo Masterworks Cloud, the teams at Virginia Beach already see improved efficiency, data accuracy and visibility across projects. Routine workflows have been automated, data is now captured in real-time during field inspections, and advanced reports let teams analyze each project and issue.
Most importantly, project managers are more efficient and empowered to improve projects and controls from inception to close.
