We are pleased to announce a new PRISM case study with Laing O'Rourke, Australia's largest privately-owned construction company and an $8 billion global engineering enterprise. This case study explores the power of integration of field progress, project schedule, labor cost, and timesheet resources information. Learn about some of the challenges that they faced before using an integrated field management and cost management solution.

Previous Challenges:

  • Inconsistent business processes
  • Non-integrated budget and program
  • Decentralized spreadsheets
  • Time wasted on data processing
  • Problem amplified by being a self-perform contractor 

Laing O'Rourke Australia overcame these challenges and effectively reduced weekly reporting cycles, managed large and complex projects with a lean team, and achieved confidence in reports and forecasts that enabled faster business decisions.   

"This system totally aligns with our business model and vision moving forward to become 'best-in-class excellence in PC'.  In the modern construction world, data management and integration leveraging modern technology is required to deliver successful projects. We believe PRISM is a key piece of that journey towards achieving our goal." - Head of Planning and Project Controls, Steven Bird.
