CASE STUDY C&I ENGINEERING LEVERAGES ECOSYS ™ TO INCREASE VALUE FOR CLIENTS COMPANY PROFILE • Employee-owned design and construction firm • 270+ employees • Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky CHALLENGES • Replace old, in-house systems that were siloed • Knowledge loss due to a retiring workforce, including founders of the company • Needed a solution to optimize and maximize resources C&I Engineering is an engineering, procurement, and construction management firm offering leading services for refineries, chemical plants, utility facilities, and more. Based in Louisville, Ky, C&I's 270+ employees provide hands-on design expertise for increasing capacity, improving efficiency, meeting environmental regulations and prioritizing safety. One of the things that differentiates C&I Engineering is a spirit of ownership. As an employee-owned company, every employee is committed to serving clients and finding ways to add more value. Its strong background in process, project controls and project execution has contributed to C&I's success. However, as the company grew, it became clear that its homegrown tools were not scalable or sustainable. One of the most important business drivers for C&I is resource management. Staff often splits their time across several projects for several different clients, so planning is very important. The goal is to make sure consultants are doing the right thing at the right time. C&I needs to be able to keep its staff billable and accountable in order to deliver maximum value to clients. However, the lack of reliable, traceable and centralized data from siloed project management tools made resource planning difficult, forecasting inaccurate and enterprise-level reporting close to impossible. In order to create a software ecosystem for sustainable success, C&I decided to replace its home-grown tools with a platform capable optimizing resources and improving project performance across the enterprise. C&I selected EcoSys™ Enterprise Project Performance software because of its flexibility and ability to integrate with its ERP system, along with robust resource planning and forecasting capabilities.
