Oracle Prime Helps Improve Construction Team Collaboration, Productivity in the Field Construction firms increasingly are focused on revving up productivity, especially in the field. And Oracle Construction and Engineering is focused on helping the industry do just that, having recently launched a cloud service that streamlines jobsite processes to boost productivity from project setup to closeout. In the following interview, Mark Enstrom, Oracle Construction and Engineering director of product strategy, explains how Oracle Prime Projects Cloud Service can help construction teams work more efficiently and how it leverages the power of the cloud to facilitate true collaboration and improve accountability. *Q: Which construction team members benefit can benefit the most from this new cloud service?* A: Whether it’s a project manager, a site superintendent, a subcontractor foreman, or a tradesperson, Oracle Prime helps everyone become more productive. Oracle Prime allows field teams to escape the traditional paper chase associated with managing critical materials, such as construction documentation, issue-tracking records, punch lists and RFIs. All materials are stored centrally in the cloud, giving stakeholders ready access to the latest and most accurate information. With Oracle Prime’s field collaboration tools, project managers and field teams can import and centrally publish drawing sets and track issues directly with electronic files. Automated controls accurately manage versioning. In the cloud, all stakeholders can see the current status of every issue, punch-list item, and RFI. *Q: How do these features fit in with Oracle Prime’s other capabilities?* A: Oracle Prime Projects Cloud Service is a complete, cloud-first project management platform that enables team collaboration and real-time visibility across the project lifecycle. Oracle Prime Projects integrates management of project portfolios, schedule, Lean construction tasks, resource, cost, field management, documents and risk to deliver complete project success. *Q: What other ways does Oracle Prime Field address the unique needs that arise at jobsites?* A: Mobile technology is crucial in the field, and Oracle offers Oracle Prime Field for iOS, a mobile app that makes it easy for teams to access vital information while on a jobsite. At the end of the shift, they can use the app to sync back to the cloud to update the day’s progress and highlight any open issues for other stakeholders to address. In addition, configuration tools within Oracle Prime Field let project teams tailor the application to the specific processes they’ve designed for each job. This ensures that Oracle Prime Field conforms to established processes rather than making the processes conform to the application
