EcoSys, Project Controls

EcoSys is an easy-to-use web-based platform purpose-built to deliver a holistic, enterprise-wide perspective on improving the full life cycle of projects – from project portfolio management, to project controls, to contract management. 

EcoSys bridges the gap that has traditionally existed between planning and managing project execution. This means EcoSys delivers the industry’s deepest capabilities across the full spectrum of solutions that project and program professionals need to effectively control costs, manage resources and improve all facets of project performance – from long-range capital planning and portfolio management, through the immediate and real-time information needs of project execution.

The EcoSys Enterprise Project Performance Platform consists of three core products – EcoSys Portfolios, EcoSys Projects and EcoSys Contracts - that seamlessly share information. This makes the software an ideal long-term strategic investment. Use the software for your current needs in just one or a few areas, then easily scale to adapt to your organization’s evolving needs over time.
