Cost Efficiency and Risk Containment
OnTrack’s methods and software have been proven to reduce project costs by 5% to 20% over the last 30 years.
Control Framework and Governance
OnTrack Control Framework (OCF) provides a solid foundation for the Project Management Office.
With OnTrackPM being the single source for project truth, providing full visibility of progress in real time, stakeholders can react to change quicker and make decisions based on concrete facts.
OnTrackPM provides you near realtime visibility during execution while giving equal value in traceability.
We believe that you cannot ignore any detail or plan what you do not know, that all transactions must be documented, duplication and repetition need to be avoided, providing instant answers to questions and satisfying your stakeholders. These are some of the benefits achieved by basing OnTrack Project Manager’s design and structure on the concept of integration.
OnTrackPM enables buyers, contract managers, expeditors and inspectors to consistently manage requisitions, request for quotes, bids, purchase orders (POs) and contracts with the granularity required for engineering and construction. The features cover every step in as much or as little detail as required, from requisition through issue and closeout audit.
Receiving Materials and Services is a pivotal integrated feature set within OnTrackPM. The powerful capabilities bring commitments and accruals together, then feed critical real-time data to the planning, finance, cost control and construction functions, thereby enabling them to perform with maximum productivity and efficiency.
OnTrack Project Manager records by account the dollar-value cost and schedule information of capital projects, conforming to the ANSI 748 standard. The project team can view the cost and schedule performance of each account (CPI and SPI) and can forecast the cost and schedule at completion for each account and for the total project.
Project Finance and Accounting
OnTrack’s Financial and Portfolio Control Module can perform all the project financial transactions from procurement, receiving and invoice processing to payment and final bank reconciliations. OnTrack streamlines all the accounting transactions. Payment can be made directly out of a trust account or the processed data can be sent to ERP systems for payment.
OnTrack’s Collaboration Module tracks and organizes email correspondence with your clients, vendors, contractors and employees, allowing you to catalogue your project communication in a central database for the short and long terms. The Collaboration module tracks lists and logs, organizes everything by subject and type, and includes automatic electronic prompts for the action items that you specify. This helps you ensure that all issues are dealt with and deadlines are met.
Capture all the information you need through our Document Control Module. Covering the areas of document submission and drawing control, its powerful features give the project team proper control over vendors as well as instant visibility into the status of their drawing packages and other important project documentation.
Planning Scheduling Linkages
OnTrack Scheduling is self-updating in real time as the project unfolds. Date-stamped transactions are compared to what was planned. The system warns you of any slippage regarding deliverables in the engineering, procurement and construction schedules. This enables you to expedite critical items in a timely manner.
Enterprise Project & Portfolio Management
OnTrack Project Manager’s Enterprise Project Portfolio functionality for project performance and cash flow gives executives high-level vision, viewing at a glance the performance of any selected group of projects. Drawing on the strengths of the integrated database, it also has the power of drilling down into individual projects to analyze details.
As a single integrated platform OnTrackPM has all your critical project data in one spot. OnTrackPM was designed as a system of project record so that every project stakeholder has access to the vital information they need during any stage of the project or asset lifecycle.
