The University of Utah is a leading education and research institution that serves more than 33,000 students. It offers more than 90 undergraduate degree programs and more than 100 fields of study at the graduate level, including law and medicine.

Maintaining aging facilities and constructing new facilities to meet the needs of the students, educators and researchers is a continuous and complex task. For years, the University of Utah’s Facilities Management department had used an in-house database for construction project tracking. In an effort to improve project visibility and enable more stringent financial controls, the university deployed Oracle’s cloud-based Primavera Unifier project management system.

Greg Colf, senior business systems analyst in Facilities Management at the University, recalls, “We went from a simple database system with limited access to a cloud-based, robust cost management and contract control system that provides greater flexibility to end-users, reduces IT management costs and enables project transparency.”

In the near future, the university plans to integrate its Primavera Unifier system with facility operations, maintenance management and geographic information systems for greater data management, transparency and sharing opportunities.
