Eos Advisor is a web-based project history and benchmarking solution built for the preconstruction and design-build markets. It is a quick and easy way to access your company's historical data to establish conceptual or feasible estimates and benchmarking studies. In just a few short steps, you can generate averages, as well as ranges of normalized costs for each element of a given project. Advisor addresses all the categories of the design/build markets and can automatically adjust for location and time adjustment, escalating historical costs to present-day or future costs.
Advisor allows estimators, project managers and business development staff to quickly search past budgets and adjust current projects for inflation, job size and location, and supports the benchmarking process so they can make better decisions and reduce risks.
Eos Project Analytics (EPA) plug-in brings customizable dashboard-style reporting, multiple element metrics, ratio charts and currency conversion capabilities to Eos Advisor. Organizations will enjoy the ability to create and render custom project portfolios in a Microsoft Excel application. Users can easily compare, analyze, and manipulate their historical project data.
