Streamline the Entire Project Lifecycle with ERP Software
Engineering firms need sophisticated planning to coordinate the right resources, at the right time, across all stages of a project to deliver projects on time.
Managing the entire project lifecycle – from bid to bill – in a single system is essential to managing costs and maximizing profit. That’s where an ERP system comes in.
The right ERP software helps you meet this challenge, so you can spend less time on administrative tasks, while increasing billable hours, project profitability and client satisfaction.

Interested in growing your engineering firm? Here’s how ERP software helps:
Optimize resource utilization
Get total visibility into staff skills and active projects to ensure you’re assigning the right resources to the right projects – and making the most of your team’s billable time.
Improve project profitability
Easily capture time and expenses against the project – from the office or the field – to increase billing accuracy. Monitor profitability and project budget vs. actual KPIs in real-time for a true picture of project performance.
Get visibility into project financials
Track invoices throughout the billing process to reduce delays and get control over aging invoices. Increase invoicing accuracy with automated revenue calculations and allocations on a project-by-project basis.
Plan your book of business
Manage your capacity plan more effectively with a complete view of upcoming projects, resource allocation and financial forecasts.
Drive project performance
Set your projects up for success using historical data to create more accurate project quotes from the outset. Then monitor work-in-progress to proactively manage risk and experience fewer project overruns.
Boost client satisfaction
Assign the most compatible resources to each project based on skill set, experience and availability to give your clients the best experience. Use real-time project reporting to monitor progress and ensure on-time delivery.
