Capital Construction Project Management Software

Contruent 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 go 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. Contruent’s capital 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 Contruent was a big part.

Common Challenges for Mining Organizations

  • The industry is slower to adopt and embrace digital technologies that can help them function more efficiently
  • Lack of transparency in stakeholder relationships and organizational data silos
  • Improving forecasting and structuring decentralized data
  • Analyzing and managing project data to make significant operational improvements to mining
  • Overcoming innovation barriers
  • Shifting from risk assurance to the anticipation of emerging risks
