InEight’s Integrated Project Controls Platform
Only InEight provides a cloud-based solution that integrates data and creates meaningful insights across your project’s life providing real time visibility into scope, cost and schedule — so you can realize better outcomes.
The volume of data created to deliver even a small project is massive. Making sense of data that’s derived from disconnected systems can be nearly impossible. InEight provides a common data environment (CDE) that improves your ability to collect, manage and report against data. This drives efficiencies in execution because stakeholders have a unified view of the project through models, dashboards and the source systems they use to manage the project in each phase of its life cycle.
Adapt plans in real time as demands and conditions change from original through to as-built.
Scope: Real-time line of sight to scope changes. This includes models, documents, drawings, inspections and test plans.
Cost: Cash flow insight and protection against margin erosion. This includes budgets and actuals, estimates and forecasts.
Schedule: Deliver the most realistic plans. This includes CPM schedules, work plans, short-interval plans and daily plans.
A complete life cycle view of your project that eliminates rework, reduces risk and enables fast decision-making from seamlessly flowing, consistent, real-time data. InEight connects your office and field teams and strengthens communication and collaboration across stakeholders. This higher level of visibility, communication and accuracy helps you make critical project decisions that result in higher project certainty.
InEight’s integrated platform enables collaboration across stakeholders to drive efficiency and eliminate surprises.

MUST-HAVES WHEN CONSIDERING AN
INTEGRATED PROJECT CONTROLS PLATFORM
Here are several key functionalities your system should include as you consider an integrated project controls platform. They’ll help your teams guide a project from beginning to end, while improving your bottom line.
Accommodates the Full Project Life Cycle
Consider full life-cycle project management with an integrated system that allows you to leverage solutions in one platform that connect across disciplines. You’ll eliminate rework and keeps teams communicating across disciplines by utilizing a common dataset — from initial planning of the scope, cost and schedule to project closeout and handover.
Allows for Sophisticated Risk Management and Scenario Planning
The right integrated platform gathers the necessary data while a plan is being built, allowing stakeholders to provide direct and actionable risk analysis. You should also look for team collaboration functionality so others can offer their opinions on plan achievability. This ensures a project has a higher likelihood of achieving cost and schedule objectives.
Enables Construction-Specific Document Management and Control
Look for a system that allows you to leverage a single source of truth for project information across all phases of construction. You’ll want a collaborative document control solution that integrates project documents with other business processes, which will increase efficiency. Lastly, you’ll want to be able to track document reviews and approvals and have a record of every time a document has been touched.
Provides for Real-Time Budgeting, Earned-Value Reporting and Forecasting
Consider a truly integrated platform that brings all of your data together to create budgets directly from estimates. Keep the budget current by feeding back costs, man-hours and productivity data as work is executed in the field. You’ll have the ability to forecast work based on real-time information and progress.
