International Services Provider


One of Canada’s largest providers of integrated management services, managing over eighty (80) million square feet and 250,000 infrastructure sites, had grown rapidly in recent years through large contract acquisition. This rapid growth had created an environment with several challenges, including: disparate systems, varying procedures, and difficulty in leveling workloads across functions and client accounts. Within this environment, the project management division in particular had identified several challenge areas, including project delivery, time and expense, and service billing.
