ARES PRISM suits project-focused industries that need a fully integrated solution to manage every stage of capital projects and programs, from initial estimate to project close-out. The PRISM platform centralizes and standardizes each step: estimating, cost management, engineering, procurement, contract management and field management. With both multi-currency and multi-language support, PRISM offers global, enterprise-wide transparency.
When combined with solid project management, PRISM helps organizations maximize productivity, lower project costs and reduce schedule overruns. With real-time cost tracking, forecasting and variance, users can easily predict and influence capital projects and programs. PRISM helps companies identify trends and react quickly to potential problems.
PRISM has a role-based, customizable workflow that makes it easy to deploy and adopt. With Web-based dashboard KPIs, users have a collaborative, dynamic way to measure and predict project performance. It also integrates with Oracle Primavera P6 and Microsoft Project.
There's also comprehensive reporting, with features for funding analysis, progress measurements, supplier and vendor evaluations and more.
