2015 Winner Profile

AECOM

Project Description:
The company's Ecosystem Initiative developed a cloud-based platform to guide and execute all aspects of a client's project lifecycle: planning, monitoring, project management and client support. It includes a workflow tool for project decisions, tracking and lessons learned; a next-generation intranet; an incentive program that uses algorithms to calculate payments to team members based on their achievements on key project criteria such as safety, profitability and client satisfaction; and new, smart applications (such as "New Project Setup") that automatically guide the user through the process, trigger go/no-go reviews, and use predictive analytics to warn of potential project risks. A new app store provides relevant applications via single sign-on access. Project managers and business development teams have everything they need in a single platform with consistent data. The resulting efficiencies are leading to improved productivity, higher win rates, higher margins and improved cash flow.
