We help our clients improve their project controls practice through consulting and technology. Our experienced consulting team has successfully defined and executed Project Controls strategies on every continent. With offices in North America, EMEA, and India, we work face-to-face with our clients supported by a global infrastructure. Our proprietary tools and methodologies including our Project Controls Optimization Model accelerate time to results.
As project controls experts, ProNovo uniquely combines project controls best practice, industry knowledge, and project controls technologies expertise.
As former Skire employees, our founders have designed and deployed Unifier solutions since 2010. Following the acquisition of Skire by Oracle Primavera, our management team led worldwide Primavera Unifier consulting, design, and deployment efforts for Oracle Consulting Services (OCS). While at OCS, our founders developed solid reputations as industry, practice, and technology experts. Our consultants have designed and deployed project controls solutions of every scope and scale.
ProNovo’s proprietary Project Controls Optimization Model forms the foundation of our consulting approach. This proven mixture of methodologies, tools, and best practices, helps accelerate and guide you from strategy to plan to deployment.
ProNovo uses a flexible delivery model and a rapid deployment model to reduce costs and accelerate implementation. Our global development team ensures quick turnaround and 24/7 support when required.
As former Skire and Oracle employees, our management team has designed and deployed Primavera Unifier solutions around the globe. Our successes range from departmental to enterprise solutions, and include the largest Primavera Unifier deployment in history. Because Unifier is most effective when integrated, we commonly build solutions linked seamlessly with leading ERP systems including Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) and SAP. We also incorporate complementary Primavera technologies in our solutions, including P6 EPPM, Primavera Analytics, Oracle BI Publisher, and Primavera Gateway.
Here’s what a few of our clients had to say about our team.
“Tim and his team helped us with the initial stages of a proof-of-concept (POC) for the project controls portion of an overall project management solution. He added value to the process because he not only possessed a comprehensive knowledge of the Oracle Primavera Unifier software, but he was also able to apply business acumen as a result of his PMP credentials to develop a working prototype that showcased the capabilities of the software and tailored the POC to the business processes related to our project management organization.”
– JR Karbowski – Project Management Consultant, Major Oil & Gas Firm
“Tim and his team helped Alcoa prepare a proof of concept featuring Primavera Unifier. Trust and creditability is critical to any consulting relationship and Tim was able to quickly demonstrate that not only did he know what he was talking about, but was prepared to challenge the customer and provide his honest, objective opinion about the strengths and weaknesses of all products being considered in the context of Alcoa’s business. Tim was an energetic, highly productive and output focused project manager who ensured our objectives were met within the agreed time and budget.”
– Troy Tindale – Project Controls and Services Manager, Alcoa
“Tim worked as part of an integrated client IT & project controls business function in helping define the long-term project controls strategy and solution & build a proof of concept model. This required extensive stakeholder management across the multiple functions which interface with project controls, such as contracts, procurement & finance. In many case this required training in the basics of project controls & the development of awareness as to how these functions processes can affect the efficiency, reliability & accuracy of the project controls output. Required working through how our current processes, in-house developed solutions & third party products (Primavera P6, SAP, ProCon, SharePoint, DRIMS, & multiple reporting tools used with data warehousing) integrated & shared data. A particular challenge was agreement on where the “single source of the truth” for specific data was to be held. Today the organization has an integrated system with improved standardized processes (based on the principle of “single entry, multiple use of data) which is capable of being used across the entire business & is configured to be used in multiple locations worldwide enabling full program & portfolio control & reporting.”
