  • Problem
    Oracle Primavera P6® is a state of the art Enterprise Project Portfolio Management System designed to allow worldwide project teams to collaborate for the best project results. Giving your team access to load all of the necessary data into the system may not always be possible, and even when it is, the data entry process can be frustrating and time-consuming.

    Solution

    The Emerald P6-Loader is a flexible and secure solution that automates Primavera P6 data extraction, loading and updating. The P6 Loader gives project users and administrators the ability to import and export nearly every data element available in P6, allowing for the movement of data back and forth between Primavera P6 and Microsoft Excel in a controlled manner.


    The P6-Loader can create and update data in the Primavera database and allow users to manipulate data at both the project level and global level. With the P6-Loader, you can literally create an entire database in minutes. As a result, the P6-Loader goes above and beyond Primavera P6’s built-in Excel import & export functionality. The functionality in P6 is limited to the manipulation of 5 data elements and restricted to project level data that can only be moved one project at a time.

    Here is what a recent customer had to say:

    Since incorporating the P6-Loader into our reporting system, we’ve streamlined our schedule updating process (for several projects) from what used to take several hours down to under an hour. Thanks to Emerald’s excellent on-site training and support in integrating it into our progress reporting system, productivity has increased significantly.
