Hexagon PPM will be showcasing EcoSys in a presentation at  Toronto Section of AACE International, the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering through Total Cost Management.

Presentation title: Business Case for Enterprise Projects Performance Software
High predictability, being as accurate as possible as early as possible, has historically been difficult and particularly in Engineering & Construction projects.  Project complexity, limited visibility into Today’s world-class organizations have all implemented Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. They wouldn’t dream of trusting their financials, analytics and reporting to the uncontrolled, unstandardized world of Excel and point solutions. And yet, this is precisely what many of them do when it comes to projects – the engines of their strategic and financial growth.
The Enterprise Projects Performance (EPP) system is the counterpart to the ERP system. With a mission to maximize returns (for project owners) or margins (for contractors), EPPs provide visibility across an organization’s full projects lifecycle, aligns strategy with project execution, and drives better decision making for all project stakeholders. So why don’t executives seem to care about the EPP platform.
How do you effectively communicate the value of EPP software within your organization? We will build the business case for Enterprise Projects Performance software, covering topics including:
  • How EPP software delivers value and Return on Investment
  • Shortfalls of common “alternatives” to managing projects performance
  • “Must Haves” for best practice EPP software
  • A demonstration of the EcoSys EPP platform
