Major US Port Chooses Fieldpoint Service Software
Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Fieldpoint Service Applications say that one of the largest U.S. Port Authorities had selected Alert Software as their Project Management, Contract and Grant Management solution.

As stated in the [not named] Port Authority's 2012 annual report, they had $38.6M worth of completed capital projects and $35.3M in construction-in-progress projects. Project accountability was a key driver for this initiative. With several millions of Federal, State and Tax dollars being awarded, tight cost controls were required from the bid process to project delivery and on-going maintenance support.

Alert Software say they will unify the project management processes and aggregate job cost details throughout the project lifecycle. The project controls will comply with government auditing requirements for cost management and financial reporting. Alert Software will integrate to Microsoft Dynamics GP to provide a cohesive Project solution to the Port Authority. 
“The Port Authority has several projects and infrastructure improvement jobs at any given time," says Rich Smart, President at Fieldpoint Service Applications. “Tracking the costs and progress of these activities is a critically important element of what they do as an organization. Alert is going to ensure that the Port has full visibility of all activities in real time.”

Alert Software will Streamline the Project Management Processes:

    •        Project Management and Project Accounting
    •        Contract Management – Vendor Contracts and Documentation
    •        Grant Management – Track Awards and Funds
    •        Job Costing and Project Financial Reporting

Fieldpoint Service Applications Inc.
is a  service management software provider of unified project management and field service application
