Q: What is the iPDWeb Solution

A: The iPDWeb (integrated Project Development) solution is a comprehensive project development application, fully integrating all functional aspects of DOT construction projects from estimate creation and electronic bidding through the final contractor payment.  This includes:  Estimates, Parametric Estimating, Electronic Bidding, Construction Management, Materials Management and Civil Rights compliance.

Q: Is iPD a Web application?

A: Yes. iPD was completely redesigned from the ground up as a native web application renamed iPDWeb™. 

Q: What is the significance of "integrated" in the iPD name?

The iPDWeb solution was designed and developed to be a completely "integrated" system to manage transportation agency construction projects rather than a collection of individual, standalone modules that are linked together by way of external interfaces. The integrated nature of iPDWeb eliminates the need for multiple data entry points and any import/export requirements between different systems, substantially reducing the time requirements and administrative workload to manage construction projects.

Q: What portions of the DOT project planning and management     processes are included in the ExeVision solutions?

A: ExeVision's solutions include three offerings:  iPDWeb, ICXWeb and Parametric Estimating.

iPDWeb

  • Project cost estimating

  • Electronic bidding

  • Electronic bid opening

  • Construction management: project ledger & accounting

  • Contractor payment/payroll

  • Daily diary

  • Electronic Field Book (for field data entry)

  • Materials Management

  • Civil rights management and automated reporting

  • Contract preparation

  • Ad-hoc (user friendly) management reporting

Parametric Estimates

  • Joint ExeVision/HDR project

  • Accurately estimate long-range projects and budgets

  • Estimates truly representative of project engineer estimates

  • Applies mathematical and statistical models to the agency’s historical data 

  • Uses sophisticated combination of:

    • Parametric Estimating

    • Percentage of Project

    • Composite Items

iPCXWeb

  • Contractor bid preparation and submission

  • Completion and error checking

  • Item prices

  • DBE and subcontractor commitments

  • Addendum acknowledgements

  • Fully customized certifications

  • Structured data

  • Attached files

  • Digital/electronici signatures

  • SecureVault for bid submission

Q: What is iCXWeb?

iCXWeb is the first web application for contractor bid creation and submission, substantially improving your agency’s interaction with your contractors and the AGC. This pioneering approach to web based bidding will make everyone’s life easier…and much more productive. iCXWeb eliminates uploads, downloads, file transfers and duplicate data entry. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate, visually representing the tasks remaining to be completed in order to submit a responsive bid. These tasks include bid item prices, addenda acknowledgement, certification completion, financial and other document submissions, and if required, electronic bid bond and digital certificate validation.  Contractors can also enter subcontractors, assign work and track payments to subcontractors, information accessable to the transportation agency if required.. Once the bid is complete, the contractor may submit or withdraw bids with a click.

Q: What are the benefits to the Agency of ExeVision and ExeVision solutions?

A: The iPDWeb and iCXWeb solutions manage the minutia of the construction management process and maintains the detailed information from the bidding process so that DOT employees can use their time more effectively. For example,

  • The iPDWeb and iCXWeb solutions are fully customizable and ExeVision customizes each solution to the specific business processes of the individual agency.

  • Studies from current customer installations have shown that staff time expenditures on bid openings were reduced by 95%.

  • iPD is truly an integrated end-to-end solution, eliminating the need for multiple data entry points and import/export operations between applications.

  • The iCXWeb contractor preparation and submission platform eliminates non-responsive bids, saving time for both the agency and contractors.

  • Civil Rights and other reports can be created in seconds reducing manual tabulations and the risk of federal government sanctions or disparity studies. iPDWeb includes easy-to-use ad-hoc reporting for simplified access to your data in minutes.

  • Overall administrative efforts are substantially diminished by eliminating continual maintenance "code churn" by the agency determining what functionality is included in an update and when those updates should be applied.  Since an agency determines what functionality changes should be made to their code tree and when, updates are only created and applied when authorized and directed by the agency.

  • Functionality changes have very fast turn around times.

  • Low maintenance/service/enhancement costs.

The combination of the right product and individualized attention to each customer’s solution is a mix that will exceed the expectations of any agency, from the largest to the smallest.

Q: Since iPDWeb and iCXWeb are designed and developed as a fully integrated solution, does an agency have to purchase and install the entire application?

A: iPD was architected as a complete, integrated solution, but was developed in subsystems. Due to the modular nature of the system, the implementation of the entire solution, or selected subsystems, is available as needed. The majority of our customers have implemented individual iPD/iCX subsystems to fill existing gaps or needs and integrated those with their existing IT infrastructure. 

ExeVision also integrates iPD/iCX subsystems into existing or legacy systems as required by the the agency.
