Tatweer to adopt Trimble's Proliance softwareby Alexander Pieri on Feb 4, 2015
Saudi Arabia-based Tatweer Buildings Company has announced that it is standardising on Trimble’s Proliance capital program management software. The company will utilise the platform to support the development and maintenance of educational institutions across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
According to the US-Saudi Arabian Business Council, Saudi Arabia’s 2014 national budget has allocated $56bn towards education and training. This stands at 3% higher than the budget allocated in 2013 and the highest increase since 2007.
“The construction of new schools and related infrastructure improvements is part of an unprecedented public spending program by the Saudi government,” commented Fahad Hammad, CEO of Tatweer Building Company and former deputy minister for the Ministry of Education of Saudi Arabia.
He adds: “Proliance is an extremely scalable program management solution that standardizes the flow of critical project data across global teams to provide key stakeholders with the control, visibility and confidence we need to ensure project success—today and for years to come.”
The Proliance suite combines a variety of tools, such as project and portfolio management, facilities management, and business analytics. Tatweer is expected to utilise the software to hasten its construction developments and improve communication between global project teams.
Peter Hedlund, regional director for Trimble Buildings in the Middle East and India said: "Standardizing project and portfolio management on a common information system drives project efficiency and insight across the project lifecycle from planning and design, through building occupancy and operations.”
