Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) project management is an art. No one project is the same, yet all require careful planning, budgeting, and monitoring. Despite all good intentions and efforts, project outcomes rarely mirror the expectations set at the beginning.

Hitachi Solutions’ Engage for Construction connects all aspects of AEC project management from estimates and sales to forecasting and execution.
