Skanska UK selects Antura Projects as its new PPM Tool

Skanska, one of the UK’s leading contractors, has selected Antura Projects as its new Project, Portfolio & Resource Management (PPM) tool following a competitive tendering process.

Skanska’s IT team delivers a range of projects every year, including server upgrades, new site fit outs, data warehousing and works order management systems. 

The growth of its Project Management Office (PMO) had led the business to procure a complete PPM tool. Previously, it used a variety of spreadsheets with different macros for project planning, reporting and management. 

Doug Sorrell, Skanska UK IT’s Interim Head of PMO, says:

–We found that the Antura Projects PPM tool delivers what we need it to, provides good value and, put simply, just works. Antura listen to us and we found their people highly approachable, including the support team which has responded quickly to any questions we have had.

Skanska UK IT’s PMO Analyst, Amrit Suri, describes Antura Projects as “easy to use” and “highly configurable, where we were able to copy much of the information from the old excel spreadsheets into the new system.”

Effective reporting and better workflow

One of the key functions that Skanska embrace is the project portfolio view, which provides a view of all projects in one place – supporting effective decision-making. The configurability of the tool, in portfolio view, also ensure effective reporting.

Other benefits include the flexibility to take data and manipulate it quickly; having all the key project information in one place with consistency of reporting and having a detailed history of that information. In addition, being able to track projects, from planning stage to completion, supports effective workflow. 

Antura Group CEO Mattias Andersson says:
–We are delighted that Skanska selected Antura Projects as its new PPM tool. We’ve long developed our tool through listening to our customers’ needs, and now look forward to building on this best practice as we continue to expand in the UK and abroad.

Looking to the future, Skanska’s IT team is planning to increase the number of users it has in Antura Projects, along with using more of the resource planning elements. 


”Antura listen to us and we found their people highly approachable, including the support team which has responded quickly to any questions we have had.”
