Collabro’s flagship product, Legare, helps to provide a streamlined method of getting data into Oracle Primavera P6 EPPM from a number of different data sources.  The main hurdles of integrating with P6 from established business systems (such as ERP systems, flat files, databases and homegrown technology delivery types) are well-known, with data quality, accuracy and integrity high on the agenda.

Legare, is used by some of the world’s largest International Consultancies, Oil & Gas firms, Utilities, Governmental, Transportation, and Construction companies.

Legare Package Options

Legare is available in Standard and Professional packages. These are supplemented by a range of connectors that enable seamless integration between P6 and enterprise applications to ensure that data integrity and consistency is maintained across multiple systems. The result is that project data from all sources can be accurately combined to create an integrated plan in P6.

The Legare Standard product allows straightforward integration with Microsoft Excel data sources. Legare Professional offers the widest range of integration possibilities, including:

• Connectors to commonly used file types such as XER, CSV, Microsoft Project and Microsoft Access

• Databases connectors to Oracle and MSSQL

• Enterprise applications connectors to SAP, Maximo, and JD Edwards

In addition, the Legare Scheduler tool can automate the integration process by extracting, transforming and loading data without any user intervention. A further benefit of thescheduler is that it can be configured to email error logging and run reports to administrators upon run completion. Legare Cost Loader is a stand alone tool that enables users to efficiently and accurately bucket load costs, such as contractor data, directly into Primavera P6.

Overview of modules

Legare is modular, and in its basic form, provides a desktop productivity tool for Planning Engineers wishing to extract selective planning data from Excel and import this directly into Primavera. The base product also allows planning information to be shared with users that may not have access to Primavera.

As an organisation’s requirements mature, Legare’s modular approach protects the user’s investment, with the addition of further features such as the Scheduler, which provides the automation of regular data exchange tasks. Additional connectors offer integration with other data sources, all of which lead to an enterprise-wide Primavera integration solution and Planning Engineer’s productivity tool.

The following descriptions explain how the modules work in more detail:

Legare Core: The core component which enables activity level import and export of data.

Connectors: Seamless connection to multiple data sources such as Oracle and SQL Server, file types such as Excel and Primavera XER – which in turn allow access to applications such as SAP and eBusiness Suite etc.

Relationships: Allows P6 relationship networks to be built.

Dictionary: Maintains Primavera global dictionaries including Activity Code and Resource Definitions.

Forecaster: Accesses Work Orders and PMR’s from host systems or data sources and creates forward tasks.

Scheduler: Schedules batch jobs to be run automatically at user-defined times.

Project Batch Creator: A module within the Legare product suite that enables bulk set-up of projects.

Configuration Database: Allows users to save and load configurations to a central database to share them with other users.

Cost Loader: Enables cost profiles to be applied to Primavera projects. Data extracted from cost systems may be loaded into Primavera financial periods across multiple projects at a time.

Legare Standard – Basic Package

Our standard Legare package is a low-cost, easy to use system which enables planners to create simple data mappings in seconds, whilst also allowing more complex Work Breakdown Structures to be created in a few hours. Legare avoids Excel “cut and paste” and minimises the impact on your IT infrastructure and support – the key business benefit is that cleaner data makes for more accurate analysis and reporting.

Our basic level licence comes with the Excel connector included.

Legare is used by a growing number of multinational organisations in the Energy, Construction, Utilities, and Engineering Consultancy industries and is supported by well known specialist partners worldwide.
