PRZM System to be replaced by e-Builder

Posted on 05/09/2016

The University Office of Capital Programs and Real Estate Services (UOCP&RES) is in the process of implementing e-Builder, a new construction management software to replace our existing PRZM system. e-Builder will support the university’s strategic planning initiatives by:

  • Providing newer technology for document management and routing; approval workflows and digital signatures; project portfolio reporting and dashboards; mobile device accessibility; and cash flow analysis.
  • Ensuring data integrity, enhancing the ability to provide fiscal oversight, and standardizing accounting processes.
  • Increasing the efficiency and transparency of capital project management.

UOCP&RES has formed a cross-functional project team to ensure a successful implementation. At this time, the team is proposing a pilot implementation for fall 2016 and a phased go-live for spring 2017.

Information about the status of the system implementation will be available on our website. Currently, there is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document posted within the training site. To access the FAQ document:
