We previously announced last March, that Oracle released three new Cloud Services Accelerators for Primavera. These Accelerators help organizations get up to speed faster with pre-configured solutions. One of these Accelerators, the Oracle Contract Management Cloud Accelerator is tailored specifically for the engineering and construction industries and offers the best opportunity for users of Primavera Contract Management to migrate to Unifier.
Primavera Contract Management is being discontinued and many organizations using this tool will need to think about an alternative solution sooner or later. This is where the Contract Management Cloud Accelerator comes in.
Contract Management Cloud Accelerator combines Oracle’s Primavera Unifier and best practices for the engineering and construction industry. For the first time, it really gives Primavera Contract Management users the best path to upgrade away from what will soon become a legacy tool. Designed with existing Primavera Contract Management users in mind, upgrading to the Contract Management Cloud Accelerators preconfigured business processes is the closest that you will get to it. In addition, making the move will allow you to take advantage of the power of Oracle’s next-generation project management platform.
What Is The Contract Management Cloud Accelerator?
The Contract Management Cloud Accelerator comes with prebuilt business processes, cost worksheets and schedule integration that help keep all parties and disciplines informed about the impact of changes as they arise. It also provides stakeholders the capability to better handle disputes by providing a well-documented project record that contains essential construction documents, such as requests for information, submittals, drawings, and meeting minutes. This is supported by full audit trails, including date and time stamps, so you would have an accurate record of any changes that were made. In summary, key features include:
- Data entry screens designed just for your organization
- Enterprise model cost and document management
- Multiple dashboards at all levels
- Direct integration with AutoVue and Primavera P6
- Cost worksheets with calculable fields exactly the way you want them
- Full document manager at all levels
- Mobile use on tablets and smart phones
- Email approvals and reviews
- Cash flow capabilities
- Phase gates
- True audit trail
Sooner or later, users of Primavera Contract Management will need to think about moving platforms and Oracle has made the job a whole lot easier with Unifier and the Contract Management Cloud Accelerator. No one really looks forward to migrating, but with proper planning, risk mitigation and expertise the process can go a lot smoother.
