Oracle Primavera

One of the biggest challenges for project-intensive organisations is managing the portfolio of projects underway at any one time. Prescience Technology understands those challenges only too well, which is why we sell, recommend, implement and support Oracle Primavera through our PrescienceAdvantage suite of services.

As Australia’s only Oracle Primavera Specialized Platinum Partner and Oracle’s Primavera Outstanding Partner of the Year – Australia New Zealand, Prescience Technology is able to offer end to end Primavera services – from licence sales, to implementations, upgrades and integration; providing planners, schedulers and administrators; delivering change and learning programs, including online and classroom Primavera training, and providing ongoing technical and functional support.

Oracle Primavera is closely aligned with Prescience’s belief in the discipline of great project delivery. Primavera’s P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management solution helps organisations complete projects on-time and within budget by enabling them to prioritise, plan, manage and evaluate projects and programs. The Oracle Primavera suite also includes Risk Management, Portfolio Management and Contract Management tools.

These various components allow companies to manage budgeting, planning and scheduling, cost management, resource allocation, risk analytics and even your change management activities, providing real-time reporting through flexible, web-based interfaces.

Prescience brings broad enterprise knowledge and implementation experience to the Oracle Primavera product suite. We also leverage our deep project management expertise and extensive knowledge of the business and Oracle applications that integrate with Primavera. It’s this unique combination of expertise which enables us to help clients implement Primavera in a high value, sustainable manner.

Some examples of recent projects include:

  • Making recommendations and leading the implementation of aligning cost control and work breakdown structures between Oracle Primavera and the Oracle ERP system for a significant capital program for a resources company;

PrescienceAdvantage Primavera Implementation and Upgrade

Prescience Technology’s implementation and upgrade professionals combine years of real-world experience with unequalled implementation management knowledge to ensure the success of every project we are involved with. Given our focus on Oracle, our consultants have a unique capability to help clients optimise the interface of Primavera with other Oracle technologies.

At Prescience, we understand that implementing Primavera is more than simply installing a new technology system. Primavera supports a structured way of working, a way of managing the multiplicity of elements that go toward making up any program, project or indeed portfolio of projects.

That’s why we tailor our offering to address your particular challenge. It takes careful planning and collaboration to ensure the functional capability of the software is maximised, that extraneous complexity is always avoided, that critical process and data elements are not lost during the transition and that relevant user and application support are put in place to ensure the solution is a sustainable one. Our consultants maintain a keen focus on quality assurance, risk management, knowledge transfer and process simplification. Our practical, pragmatic approach addresses both cost saving and optimisation without compromising quality.

Our PrescienceAdvantage Primavera program also allows clients to bring one of our talented Primavera or scheduling specialists onsite for short or longer term engagements as necessary.

PrescienceAdvantage Primavera Integrations

We have also recently partnered with Pipeline Inc so we are also able to offer a faster, more effective integration into ERP and EAM systems. Pipeline’s Maxavera provides a plug-and-play integration. Within hours of installation Maxavera will be intelligently transferring work orders, tasks, labor, equipment details  and other eAM information to Primavera P6 where work can be scheduled and resources optimised. Maxavera then automatically sends relevant updates to the schedule, logic and resource assignments back to the eAM keeping the two systems in sync. The comprehensive and efficient solution can reduce the time, expense and risk of integration by up to 90% over other integration approaches. Find out more on our Integration Services page.

PrescienceAdvantage Primavera Planning, Scheduling and Administration

Prescience Technology can deploy our talented Primavera planning, scheduling or administration specialists to assist clients either in short- or long-term engagements – onsite, or remotely. Our experienced consultants can help you manage through immediate resource shortages on critical projects or assist your team while they are coming up to speed with Primavera. Either way, we can tailor a solution to suit your business priorities. To find out more or request a quote, visit our Project Controls Experts page.
