Burns & McDonnell to Host Oracle Webinar & Present Success of Utilizing Primavera Products on a Billion-Dollar Program

WALLINGFORD, CT--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Burns & McDonnell has been selected by Oracle to provide a client testimonial on the successful utilization of Primavera products on complex billion-dollar programs. Representatives from the Burns & McDonnell New England Office will discuss the range of project control and information management services that have been used on Central Maine Power's $1.4 billion Maine Power Reliability Program. Under this contract, a team of Burns & McDonnell project managers, engineers, information management specialists, project controls specialists, real estate specialists, environmental specialists, siting and permitting specialists, and community relations specialists have utilized this Primavera-based suite of project controls software, processes and tools to develop, implement and maintain a project cost, schedule and risk management program.

Burns & McDonnell representatives will discuss the tools the project team created in-house to manage the significant amounts of project information. These tools include NoTouch Reporting™, a proprietary quality assurance / quality control automated report delivery tool that distributes reports and highlights action items to project team members, among numerous other functions, and OneTouchPM®, a proprietary tool used to display project information on a real-time basis through a Google Earth platform. Both of these tools have been utilized to provide clients with effective communication, greater control and less risk in all phases of a project. Both tools resolve a myriad of information management issues and serve as the benchmark for success in demanding, fast-paced project environments.

The webinar will be held on April 28, 2011 at 2 pm ET. Registration information is available through Oracle's website at http://www.cenews.com/webcasts.
