VPO is a Capital Program Management Solution for Owners
Centralize and standardize. Gain efficiency and visibility. Your program, your way--with administration and support for all of your internal and external participants.
VPO is everything you'd expect, and more--concept through closeout--but we're not like Big Software. We're a WBE delivering a flexible, full-service solution with a personal touch.
We understand. We're with you. We've got this.
CENTRALIZATION & VISIBILITY. "The lack of consistency was a major problem. We didn’t have one central place where we could look at the entire portfolio of projects.”
EFFICIENCY & STANDARDIZATION. "We needed a single, cloud-based platform with heightened security protocols to bring consistency, standardization, repeatability, and greater efficiency."
SECURITY & COMPLIANCE. “[We have to vet software] through our IT Department to ensure that the solution is compliant with our security protocols."
Organizing the chaotic, simplifying the complex, and standardizing the inconsistent. We’re supercharging construction project management together as a team. VPO employees, customers, and users unite and work as partners so they can reach project completion on budget, on time, and on good terms--with an automatically-generated record of all project data and interactions.
VPO serves as the Single Source of Truth (SSOT) for all stakeholders and participants, for all phases of construction project management: Pre-design, Design, Procurement, Construction, and Post-construction.

Every customer is unique, but there are some common frustrations that bring teams to VPO.
You're up and running right away--but that's just the beginning.
When your internal and external users have questions, we’re the ones who respond.
VPO becomes the primary source of truth for all of our consultants. It’s the site of record for any drawing and document, for any project, for real-time reference anywhere, anytime. Everyone was setting up their own project sites in SharePoint. The lack of consistency was a major problem. We didn’t have one central place where we can look at the entire portfolio of projects. It was a much more decentralized delivery process.
Everything is within the realm of implementation with VPO. If I’m out of the office and if somebody wants to know about a bid on a project, that information is available right there on my phone. I’m not going to have to chase down a project manager who may be unavailable. The ability to run what-if reports on how many projects we have bidding next week, for example, really helps. We will then be able to translate that data into a more robust way to tackle workload management.
The VPO platform enables us to work as if we are all in the same room instead of having project communications and interactions become fragmented by relying on email, everyone involved in the project can access the platform to stay on the same page. Working with our customers becomes more of a collaborative, interdependent effort, which ultimately facilitates change management. We are saving time, controlling costs, maximizing resource utilization, increasing throughput, and making fewer mistakes--which were our goals when we implemented the VPO solution.
We are not a construction firm. We are a steel-making company that is growing rapidly with several large construction projects going on at the same time. Previously, each division had its own approach to managing its construction projects, and the construction group was searching to find common practices to track ongoing projects. . .We realized we needed a single, cloud-based platform with heightened security protocols to bring consistency, standardization, repeatability, and greater efficiency to the way that we manage our internal construction projects.
VPO is compartmentalized very well and provides the access control tools that we need to automate information flows as well as workflows. By managing user access and tying that access into workflows, we are realizing additional efficiencies as well as the heightened transparency required of a governmental entity. And, at the end of the project, everything is archived, preserving a public record on every project.
