EPC Engenharia Projeto Consultoria Integrates Project Management with Enterprise Management, Increases Planning Staff Productivity by 25%

EPC Engenharia Projeto Consultoria S.A. (EPC) provides engineering project management and consulting services. Faced with a growing number of projects and customers, EPC decided to implement a solution that would help improve project management efficiency and fully integrate with its internal control system. After deploying and using Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management in 100 successful projects, the company wanted to eliminate the complexity and risk associated with duplicate, manual data entries into the Primavera and ERP systems. It therefore decided to integrate the solution with its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, Totvs Microsiga 11.

This initiative enabled EPC to centralize data from each project, improving control and avoiding information loss. It also improved the planners’ productivity, as they no longer have to enter data into two systems—a task that required 25% of each planner’s time. The 10-member planning team can now dedicate this time to project management.
