Infrastructure & Transportation Industry Project Controls Software

Project Management for Infrastructure Projects

Rail and infrastructure organizations aim to improve user experiences whether by improving journey times, offering better connections, or increasing capacity to match growing populations. With projects this massive, complex and often under the public’s scrutiny, strategic approaches need to be taken– there needs to be a high level of confidence in the decisions being made, changes need to be effectively managed and progressed; keeping track of those changes and understanding their impact can be the difference between the program’s success and failure.

Digitizing the Rail & Infrastructure Industry

ARES PRISM’s enterprise project control software is designed to help rail and infrastructure organizations, whether they are government funded or not, successfully manage their infrastructure projects, programs, and portfolio. Infrastructure and rail agencies and organizations benefit from the ability to monitor construction risks at the portfolio level and drill down into the project level that PRISM provides.


PRISM supports building information modeling (BIM), can integrate organization’s current software and share information and communication between programs bi-directionally, and harnesses the sheer abundance of project data to report digestible insights for various levels, giving teams real-time data to measure progress and performance.

Our project management software helps rail and infrastructure teams to confidently and effectively manage and control project cost and schedule, so that they are delivered on-time and on budget.

Common Challenges for Infrastructure & Transportation Organizations

  • Manage approvals of many project changes per period
  • Building to increase connectivity
  • Increasing capacity
  • Project teams are dispersed in multiple offices
  • Reducing overcrowding
  • Disintegrated cost and schedule

ARES PRISM is the standard for UK rail projects, managing more than £50 billion in scope. PRISM is being utilized by top infrastructure, rail, and airport organizations all across the globe on major projects, including HS2, Crossrail, RTD, TFL, London Underground, Network Rail, Abu Dhabi Airport, Houston Intercontinental Airport, Mexico Airport, Dubai Expo 2020 and more.

Rail & Infrastructure Project Management at Its Best


“Making the cultural shift to PRISM has allowed us to get a much more integrated view. It’s a significant benefit and we sometimes forget that benefit because it has become so inherent in what we do. It’s like having a smartphone. You take it for granted and forget what life was ever like without one!”

– Guy Phillips, Head of Programme Controls, Transport for London

“All project changes can be entered and tracked in PRISM providing a dependable audit trail which enables the team to review project change history. There is never a question of who approved what and when. It’s automatic and readily available.”


“PRISM’s consistent approach to managing multiple projects, reporting through from project to programme to portfolio was a major factor leading to its implementation.”
