Solution Sheet Produce Accurate Estimates and Deliver Project Success Producing accurate estimates is critical to the success of projects, and helps ensure they deliver expected business benefits. From early stage estimates that support project selection, to detailed estimates that are used as the basis of project bids and budgets, good estimating is facilitated by efficient access to reliable data. With most project controls solutions, you need to integrate with external data sources in order to develop estimates, increasing both the time it takes to develop estimates and the likelihood of errors. But EcoSys provides an all-in-one solution with direct access to estimating at every stage of the project lifecycle.
