Utility Solution for Accurate Capital Planning, Estimating & Consistency

Deregulation of the utility industry, consolidation, increased competition, price pressures introduction of the “Smart Grid", pursuit of renewable energy sources ranging from biomass to wind power plus demand side management are all putting unprecedented demands on project cost engineers and operations to deliver accurate and cost effective projects more than ever.

Hard Dollar meets the capital planning and project control needs for power generation, transmission distribution, gas and electricity, water, nuclear, and telecom plus public works.

By far the majority percent of companies are reliant upon spreadsheets and multiple non-standard processes to provide engineering estimates, capital planning estimates and actual to estimated cost outcomes. Inherent with this is the inability to abstract, compare and selectively re-use data captured in the spreadsheets.

Hard Dollar for utilities and public works improves estimating accuracy and reduces response times, allowing time to evaluate the project considering alternate approaches, consistency, escalation and varied schedule scenarios.
