Our Clients say...
"CRC for Infrastructure Engineering (CIEAM) was extended from its previous 7 year operation that ended on 30th June 2010. The extension took effect
from 1st July 2010 for a three (3) year period ending 30th June 2013.
It its first 7 years, project accounting and milestone management was being delivered by a highly
unreliable spreadsheet systems which required manipulation and detailed analysis at the end of each reporting period to extract results. It did not necessarily produce project
costs that the Centre and its researchers had contracted to complete. Milestone completion and reporting was ad hoc and untimely.
When the CIEAM Board and Management
decided to pursue the CIEAM extension we employed Centric's Bid Management Systems which helped us manage all aspects of the CRC bid and to build what was a highly successful
proposal. The ability to populate a purpose built data base constructed to generate CRC metrics and projections provided a verifiable and highly reputable platform and was
significantly more beneficial that a spreadsheet matrix which has inbuilt idiosyncrasies. Centric truly assisted us in mounting our winning bid.
Under a transparent
and rigorous selection process, CENTRIC was then also selected as our ongoing reporting system, a decision we are still very pleased about. The following are key successes
that have been driven by the CENTRIC system:
Ownership and responsibility at all levels with regular milestones reporting and workflow approval of project deliverables
Quarterly effort reporting based on based on verifiable and supportable actual results
Annual CRC reporting made easy with the automated generation of all metrics required by CRC including actual and budgeted FTEs
An excellent data base against which quarterly reconciliation between CENTRIC managing projects and the CIEAM MYOB used for financial management is a straightforward process
An integrated IP Management Register which will be very much needed now in our Wind Up process
An effective repository for a host of project related documents that will also assist in Wind Up requirements.
CIEAM wishes to record its firm endorsement of the CENTRIC project management system, I would be please to provide a testimonial to any prospective client of the system."
