RCGI Leverages Project Insight to Manage Remediation Project

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - October 08, 2014) - Remediation Consulting Group Inc. (RCGI) (www.rcgi.ca), an environmental consulting company dedicated to providing effective solutions for environmental issues faced by clients in the upstream oil and gas industry, has replaced their previous solution with Project Insight project management software (www.projectinsight.net) to better control their projects and provide clarity to all project managers and staff.

Based in Alberta, Canada and responsible for hundreds of growing projects ranging from $1,500 to $150,000, RCGI was facing serious setbacks coordinating schedules, cost, and project scope.

"We had been using a different software solution for time entry, materials tracking and invoicing," says Marc Lalonde, RCGI Chief Financial Officer. "As the company grew, however, this vertical solution no longer met our needs. Our two biggest problems were keeping control of ongoing projects and finding a mechanism to forecast according to actual project information."

As it became obvious that RCGI needed a new project management software solution, they found that Project Insight was "the one that best fit" their needs according to Lalonde. In addition, he was able to forecast the following key attributes and benefits:

    
Feature  Benefit
Cloud-based, web-based (any device)  Accessible from office, home or field
Simple, consistent user interface  Shorter learning curve
Flexible, PMI-compliant functionality  Consistent with PMP training
Higher speed user interface  Lower ongoing costs
Portfolio management  Input into choice of clients / project types / niches
Budget tracking  Control internal and client costs
Time and expense recording and approvals  Retain current functionality
Project billing  PMs still determine what is actually billed
Document management  Documents and emails are more easily found
Scheduling, task allocation and calendaring  Senior/PM personnel are interrupted less often
Collaboration support  Communications are better documented and more available
Work breakdown planning and scheduling  Better resource and financial forecasting
Project monitoring by exception / status  Better client communication and perceived competence
Project exception reporting  PMs can handle a larger number of projects
Automatic notifications  Enhanced communication and efficiency
   

"As a result," Lalonde concludes, "we expect to improve our efficiency and productivity. We'll have better oversight of project timelines and more efficient use of company resources. And that will help us deliver a richer customer experience while enhancing work satisfaction and profitability."
