Engineering and Construction projects continue to increase in complexity while demands for reduction in costs, shorter delivery schedules, more streamlined processes, and higher returns remain the same. In turn, information technology must become a strategic solution furthering organization objectives and capable of meeting the challenges of all project stakeholders.

EcoSys is a modern, fully web-based software platform that was designed from its inception as a multi-user, multi-project web application that scales to the enterprise. Offering a feature- and function-rich platform with a solid foundation of standard processes, EcoSys drives business success by allowing you to consolidate many systems, tools, and spreadsheets into an enterprise powerhouse.

Key Benefits

EcoSys Portfolios, EcoSys Projects, and EcoSys Contracts are part of one fully-integrated software platform, avoiding the need to integrate many disparate systems and data sources. EcoSys provides:

Flexibility

Build on industry-standard processes to configure an unlimited number of solutions based on your requirements

Enterprise Ready

A secure, scalable, fully auditable, and integrated Enterprise Projects Performance platform

Simplified Maintenance

Maintain performance, quality, security, and reliability standards in a single enterprise-wide environment

Natively Connected, Out-of-the-Box

All processes in EcoSys Portfolios, Projects, and Contracts are integrated seamlessly within a single solution, inherently sharing all types of data to easily facilitate full lifecycle processes, workflows, and drill-down. This native integration is a cut above competing products where multiple software vendors have been acquired over time, not only with multiple disjointed databases but also multiple technology stacks to create headaches for IT.

EcoSys then adds unparalleled flexibility to design and implement customer-tailored solutions that match internal workflows. Meet any variety of project requirements – from small projects, to global workshare, to large megaprojects.

EcoSys has been architected with enterprise performance and scalability as key elements of its design:

Modern Technology Design

A web-based solution, EcoSys is built using HTML/AJAX technology. Compatible with all modern web browsers, EcoSys uses Java and DHTML to provide a secure, high-performing platform. EcoSys scales both horizontally and vertically using industry leading application server software and operates on either Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server databases.

Flexibility – One Size Fits None

Although EcoSys ships with rich processes, designed to work with minor modification in a large number of situations, it also provides a unique ability to conform to your processes and data structures. The Engineering and Construction industries suffer from a lack of global standards, so companies have evolved over decades. Unraveling these processes isn’t always wise so the software must flex. In fact, it’s this perfect balance of standard software and ultimate flexibility that sets EcoSys apart and the main reason it has become the global leader.

EcoSys can be tailored to the needs of companies and agencies of various sizes, maturity and aspirations to successfully deliver projects. EcoSys offers:

  • Configured versus custom solutions: EcoSys configuration is a no-code solution, requiring no programming skills to perform. Configured solutions are supported during the software upgrade process, giving a peace of mind not available with competing products.
  • Scalable Processes: Manage all projects regardless of size or complexity using the appropriate rigor. Support for an unlimited number of user experiences ensures your valued employees spend time on management, analysis, and decision-making, not tedious data manipulation and number crunching.
  • Built-in Business Intelligence: Standard and configurable dashboards and reports support context-sensitive drill down, controlled with business logic and role-based access.
  • Custom Fields and Formulas: Create an unlimited number of custom fields and formulas. The central formula library ensures a number report on one screen or report, matches all other outputs.
  • What-If Scenarios: Create an unlimited number of data versions and snapshots to compare changes in budget, forecast, and performance.

Only EcoSys provided a solution robust enough and flexible enough to execute our vision of a best-practice project cost management system.
