Ohio chooses Skire to automate capital projects processes

Ohio's state agencies, colleges and universities will receive Unifier software from Skire Inc. through an enterprise agreement valued at $3.5 million, the company announced today.

Unifier automates forms, paperwork, bidding documents, change orders, cost tracking, schedules and other information pertaining to construction projects.

The browser-based software will provide 'one software solution on all state-administered construction projects,' said Sateez Kadivar, vice president of business operations for Skire. 'Before, people kept a lot of this information in e-mails, and it was outdated,' he said.

Unifier will integrate with the state's existing PeopleSoft-based enterprise resource planning system, the Ohio Administrative Knowledge System (OAKS).
