Distribution of reports and the review of contractor submittals
Cleco is a regulated utility company, serving approximately 288,000 customers through its retail business, and supplies wholesale power in Louisiana and Mississippi. Founded in 1935, the company employs over 1,200 people across the state of Louisiana.
The busy engineering team that supports the day-to-day operations at Cleco manages multiple projects across the business. The distribution of reports and the review of contractor submittals is a mission-critical process.
To proactively manage its own organizational growth, in early 2017 Cleco reviewed its workflows for document review and approval and concluded that its existing system was no longer fully meeting its needs.
With a compliance-driven initiative already underway to implement SAP and Oracle Primavera for project management to formalize the numbering of documents, the Project and Governance Controls Department in Cleco saw the perfect opportunity to bring itself up-to-date.
