EPC Construction Project Management Software

ARES PRISM is used by EPC firms as the gold standard for construction cost control software. For Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) firms, projects are constantly increasing in size and scope while competition keeps margins thin. In one moment, a project that was running smoothly can be thrown off schedule and become over budget – leaving project changes to erode those margins even further. Without comprehensive cost control, troubled construction projects can spiral out of control before anyone even recognizes a problem exists. Consequently, engineering and construction firms are faced with mounting pressure to adopt stringent project cost and earned value management processes to enable complete project transparency. ARES PRISM project management software is a trusted EPC software solution.

“AECOM was able to reduce their project controls cost per project by 25 percent from 2014 to 2016 through a combination of process improvement and system implementation, of which PRISM was a big part.”

– Craig Boudreau, Director of Project Controls for the Oil & Gas Division, AECOM

“This system totally aligns with our business model and vision moving forward to become ‘best-in-class/excellence in PC’. In the modern construction world, data management and integration leveraging modern technology is required to deliver successful projects. We believe PRISM is a key piece of that journey towards achieving our goal.”
