A Success Story: Are you a scaling company who needs support with predictive cash flow and project management?

The Challenge

Struggling to understand the complexities of their geographic footprint and healthcare asset portfolio, one of the largest hospital operators in the United States had an urgent need to track regulated, complicated projects, on a campus, regional, national, and global-scale. In addition, challenges also included prioritization and management of capital requests and large annual project volume, with no access to real-time cash flow information – all as a result of limited internal communication and a lack of up-to-date information infrastructure.

The Solution

We helped our client create a hybrid solution – which included both professional support from our experienced staff, and our integrated data platform – customized to our client’s specific needs. This helped them to track, manage, and measure pipeline, make sound, informed decisions on capital approvals, and identify project risks early on in order to mitigate future cash flow issues.

Our Value

This combination of 100+ industry professionals, coupled with progressive technology, saved time and allowed our client to focus on what was most important – managing their business.

CREF is your scalable solution – whether as an extension of your facilities group across a large geographical footprint or assessing the feasibility of a project at its conception, CREF provides an integrated approach to create efficiencies, preserve institutional knowledge, minimize operational costs, and avoid disruption to everyday business.
