Harris County selected ATSER’s Manage-IT web-based software to provide integrated Project Information Management Control (PIMC)and Program Management (PM) solution for the Harris County Infrastructure Department. Manage-IT™ provides a web-based solution for managing all aspects of a capital project through the planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance phases of work. The solution uses an Oracle open-architecture database that can be combined with the existing Harris County IFAS database to provide even more comprehensive reports. ATSER is also providing customization per Harris County requirements.

The web-based technology includes internet security controlled by individual logins/passwords that define roles, responsibilities, viewing, editing and access rights.

The Manage-IT “Program Management System” uses an Oracle open architecture database for recording, calculating and reporting of Engineering and Construction Project information.  Information from this database is used to generate detailed reports.  This data can be combined with the existing Harris County IFAS database system to provide even more comprehensive reports.  Manage-IT provides a web-based solution for managing all aspects of a capital project through the planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance phases of work.

Project information is made accessible through several methods including an advanced search engine, through global and segregated pull down menus and through an easy to use Geographical Information System (GIS) interface.  Once an agreement or contract is selected, the user can enter, recall and report on almost every aspect of an engineering or construction project.  Other system capabilities include the importation of field data through Mobile Devices, Smartphones, Tablet PCs or any other web capable device, support of pay estimates and the ability to generate and track Change Orders by contract.

ATSER® is providing customization per Harris County requirements and systems integration support to configure business logic and workflow requirements.  The web-based technology includes internet security controlled by individual login/passwords that define roles, responsibilities, viewing, editing and access rights.
