Unifier is a web-based collaboration environment designed to support project and facility management at The University of Utah. Construction Project Delivery and Business Services utilize Unifier to support project management activities on campus. The system provides access to all project information including project planning, design, construction, and close-out. Business processes within the system allow (or will soon allow) project managers, university clients, architects, engineers, contractors, and administrators to collaborate, route, review, and approve design documents, contracts, change orders, and invoices from anywhere at anytime.
The goals established for the Unifier system are to provide accurate and timely project financial information, enable collaboration among project team members, reduce time spent resolving issues through improved communication, create an electronic repository for all projects, and improve project scheduling and coordination. Business process development within the Unifier system is an ongoing process.
