Occupancy and Business Continuity Plan Database Deployment colgate-palmolive company With more than 25,000 employees spread over 20 countries, Colgate-Palmolive Company is an $11.4 billion consumer products powerhouse. A critical component of its business continuity plan is to temporarily relocate senior managementlevel staff to nearby Piscataway, New Jersey, in the event of a New York City facility closure. Using Bentley solutions, including Bentley Facilities Planner, Bentley Facilities Manager, ProjectWise, and others, legacy data sources have been unified into an SQL database using industry-standard best practices for data modeling. As a result, the overall value of the facilities data has increased by formalizing its structure, improving accuracy and timeliness, enhancing its ability to be leveraged for future analysis requirements, and making it more accessible within the enterprise. The project saved more than $200,000 by eliminating outside consultant/ contract fees and 95 to 99 percent time savings to produce facilities operations reports. New EDIM embraer emp Bras aeron sa Embraer’s electronic document interchange management (EDIM) system consolidated the management, creation, and revision of graphic illustrations for aircraft manuals enterprisewide through a single interface. This increased quality and productivity in the document creation and revision process. The ease of use of ProjectWise as a graphical environment enabled the automation of the process because legacy data did not need format conversion. The system, which is located in Brazil, can be updated at any time without any loss or degradation of the information. In addition, the customized interface connects with the EDIM server online through the Internet, so a collaborative process is established by the easy sharing among work groups no matter where the team members are located.
