IWMS Selection, Implementation and Training
In 2004 Washington Mutual was a fast-growing bank with a real estate portfolio that had expanded more quickly than the company’s technology adoption. The result was plan rooms across the country overflowing with physical drawings and a poorly-implemented IWMS solution that was difficult to work with and failed to meet the organization’s needs. From 2004 to 2008, Buildingi guided Washington Mutual through a rigorous software selection process, implemented a best-of-class instance of Tririga® and instituted a custom chargeback model to help WaMu better understand the costs of vendors working in WaMu’s spaces. Additionally, Buildingi implemented the Corporate Plan Center, an externally-facing website that allowed WaMu employees and vendors to access the full breadth of WaMu drawings, allowing the physical plan rooms to be decommissioned and used for other purposes.
