Justin Newton, Director-Project Management Fluor, stated “The Oregon Bridge Delivery Partners (OBDP) has been using the Aurigo capital project management application since 2007 to automate our process and other business process in support of the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) $2.5 billion OTIA III State Bridge Delivery Program. One of the principal goals of the program was to implement new and efficient delivery practices and systems. To validate the benefits of our systems, we contacted a professional economist to study nine automated systems over the past 6 months. I am pleased to say that the Aurigo application has generated very favorable return on investment for the program and the State. Based on this success, we are already evaluating the enhanced forms and workflow processing capabilities available in Aurigo’s latest release.”
Aurigo entered the construction industry with its first capital project management solution in 2003. The solution, previously known as BRIX, has been upgraded to include new features and modules that enable users to seamlessly collaborate with internal and external project team members streamlining the overall construction process increasing speed and reducing costs. Masterworks has the capability to centralize documents in order to improve collaboration, drive accountability through notifications and check-ins, and drive project efficiency through better organization and alignment of systems across the life of the project.
