UVO customer benefits

Agility and accuracy in planning
Respond quickly to changing resource availability, shifting priorities, or emergency work by pivoting investments and planned projects in real time to meet urgent demands with UVO — a transparent, dynamic, and strategic asset investment planning solution built for today’s rapidly changing environment.

Getting started quickly with available data
The Universal Visual Optimizer only requires two sources of information to get organizations set in a matter of hours:

  • 1) Current KPIs and forecast over next five years
  • 2) Candidate projects that will impact those KPIs as well as costs.

For asset-intensive organizations whose data is stored in disparate spreadsheets or corporate systems, Arcadis Gen can provide support in exporting and transforming asset data into the correct format to be used in UVO.

Better data visualization makes for smarter planning
Finance managers and heads of capital projects are easily able to visualize optimization scenarios with UVO to get the actionable insights they need to create robust, data-driven investment plans.

Project optimization at your fingertips
UVO is built with business users in mind, making it user-friendly for finance managers and heads of operations to use for their project planning sessions. Even when budget and priorities change in the middle of a meeting, UVO enables updates and re-optimizations to be completed in real time – during the same meeting – and generates a new executive level plan that has been prioritized and optimized with trusted data-driven results.

Next generation optimization scenarios
UVO is a secure cloud-hosted application that can be accessed through most web browsers, with no additional requirements from your technical team.
