Hunt Construction Group Expands Deployment and Use of Autonomy Cardiff LiquidOffice

CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN DIEGO , California, January 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardiff , a division of Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L) and leading provider of BPM and intelligent document solutions, today announced that Hunt Construction Group (Hunt) has expanded its use of Cardiff LiquidOffice technology to streamline and enhance a multitude of project management and approval processes related to its worldwide commercial construction initiatives.

As one of the top construction firms in the nation, Hunt completes over $1.8 billion of commercial construction work annually and has between six and eight billion dollars of work under contract at any given time. In business since 1944, Hunt has grown its business on the premise that outstanding project management and communication skills combined with the strategic leverage of technology enable the firm to consistently meet and exceed client expectations on the massive projects in which they regularly take the lead.

"Moving from a system of manual and paper-based project status tracking to a secure online system based on Cardiff LiquidOffice has significantly streamlined many core construction management processes at Hunt," said Steve Atkins , vice president and chief financial officer at Hunt Construction Group. "Our ability to combine the unique project management methodologies that Hunt has honed over our 63 years in business with the acceleration and visibility that can be gained through process management technology allows us to consistently enhance the outstanding level of service that we are committed to delivering to our clients."

Having used Cardiff's LiquidOffice BPM platform since 2002, Hunt has already seen the business benefit that can be obtained through automating many critical construction management processes. With its decision to extend its Cardiff LiquidOffice implementation, Hunt will now have access to expanded BPM capabilities such as sophisticated business process modeling and Mobile BPM.

"Hunt - a long time leader in commercial construction - recognized early on the value of technology that can assist in shortening their approval cycle times while providing outstanding auditability and visibility to process status." said Mark Seamans , CEO of Autonomy Cardiff . "Hunt's decision to pursue the deployment of Cardiff's Mobile BPM technology in the field will enable their staff to have anytime, anywhere access to business processes, approvals and status management even as these field personnel move throughout jobsites and meetings."

The Cardiff Intelligent Document suite automates all aspects of paper, online and mobile based document-centric business processes.
