Scheduling Software Helps Baker Group Projects Run Like a Top

Scheduling Software Helps Baker Group Projects Run Like a Top

There are lots of reasons Baker Group projects run so smoothly: Commitment, collaboration and client-focus, for examples. And there’s Oracle’s sophisticated and easy-to-use Primavera P6 scheduling software, which handles large-scale, multifaceted projects.

“To fully satisfy our clients’ needs, we must plan, monitor and execute every project in a manner that reinforces our promise that customers can expect the best from Baker Group. Primavera is another tool that helps us deliver projects on time, within budget and with virtually no surprises,” says Steve Beam, Baker Group’s Industrial Strategic Manager.

Primavera software is the primary tool Baker Group uses to:

  • Plan, schedule and track construction, procurement and engineering project activities
  • Manage human resource requirements
  • Allocate resources and track progress
  • Monitor trends in productivity
  • Conduct what-if analyses

Easily handling projects with up to 100,000 activities.
P-6 deftly handles massive amounts of data and ways to organize, filter and sort activities, projects and resources. Through its dashboard, owners and project partners enjoy up-to-the-minute, at-a-glance recaps of critical project data.

“Because of its remarkable planning and tracking capabilities – and because many Baker Group customers appreciate its functionality – P-6 has earned its place as our primary scheduling and tracking tool,” says Beam.
