Benefits

One solution developed by Guilford Group is the Viper scheduling system which manages over 800 contractors and vendors in multiple developments. The Viper system enables contractors a detailed timeline of scheduled tasks, and the ability to interact with satellite offices via PDA. The system captures any delays, the reason for the delay, and new target dates. The system automatically reschedules related task, and notes any conditions or exceptions that do not meet service level commitments. Field Construction Managers are kept up to date via wireless technology. This same technology makes it possible for staff to work anywhere, from any location.
