Success Stories

Harris County Department Of Education


The Harris County Department of Education directly serves approximately 30,000 students with four alternative campuses, therapy services provided in local schools, 21 Head Start centers for early childhood education, after-school programming in dozens of community and school settings and the oldest adult education program in Texas. With 25 school districts in their region, the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE) needed a better system for keeping track of their projects.


ATSER implemented Construct-IT™. This bundled software system is our web-based capital program management solution that has the capability to provide rigorous project tracking through the planning, design, construction, closeout, and maintenance phases. These capabilities allowed the HCDE to provide accurate, timely, and consistent project and contract status on demand.

Combined with ATSER’s Track- IT™ system, Construct-IT™ allowed HCDE to manage, track, and provide accessible documentation for their entire project portfolio. In addition, our consolidated project dashboard allowed them to manage their entire project portfolio from planning to design, and through construction and maintenance. The inclusion of our Track- IT™ functionality allowed the entire team to collaborate and stay informed on cost, schedule, quality, and administrative issues.
