E7 acquired by Bentley Systems, Inc.
We have announced the acquisition of E7 by Bentley Systems, Inc. The press release on the subject can be read here.
We are very happy to join Bentley Systems, which is a company of engineers making software for engineers. Our shared vision of accelerating the adoption of 4D construction digital twins will benefit our users in driving more predictable project outcomes. We would like to invite you, our valued customers, to join us on this exciting new journey!
E7 connects project leaders with real-time insights, providing unparalleled visibility of project performance
Simple mobile and web interfaces turn ad hoc, manual processes into standardised, digital ones, mobilising those closest to the work. With unlimited users, and controlled client and subcontractor access, E7 harnesses a project’s full network, gathering the most up-to-date project insights and supporting collaboration in one platform.
Industrial Owners and EPCM Contractors
Many of the Owners and EPCM Contractors across industry state they have real-time insight into project performance based on reporting connected to their planning and cost systems. The challenge is that these systems are typically updated on a monthly cycle and therefore real-time insight actually becomes “real-time insight” … once a month.
E7 provides Civil Contractors with a daily clear line of sight of status and performance across an entire project, greatly assisting with the continuous planning and execution of works. Daily correction to keep the project on track.
E7 provides Industrial Contractors with a daily clear line of sight of status and performance across an entire project, minimizing the risk of cost and time overruns, acting as a trusted source of truth.
Who is using E7?
APLNG Collaborative Well Delivery
After four successful years of program delivery, the team introduced E7 to help reach their next level of improvement. E7 has been the central source of project data since 2016.
E7 was used for work planning, progress and cost capture, daily diary creation, change management, and ongoing productivity reporting on MPC Kinetic’s QCLNG contracts.
QCLNG Surat North
Because this was a remote location, Clough challenged their normal way of working and applied Lean principles to support faster decision making, monthly project controls and reporting.
A strong management decision to support the use of a single point of truth being E7 has created a stable data set, helping to promote a ‘best for project’ culture. The project team could make fast and supportable decisions to exploit the opportunities a ‘production line’ approach with the adoption using lean construction techniques.
This is the greatest access we’ve had to real-time, accurate performance information to enable quality, value-adding decision-making. We’ve seen significant, measurable improvements in efficiency and productivity, which has led to cost and schedule benefits on our project.
It’s a lot easier for [construction managers, project managers and engineers] to see how well they are performing and whether they need to up their game. With E7, as long as your data is current, you have a snapshot in seconds of where you sit as a project.
