Computer Guidance Corporation - part of the Explorer Software Group of companies, the leading developer of financial and project management software solutions for architecture, engineering and construction companies, today announced the completion and official launch of eCMS Connect, an integrated solution of Prolog® construction project management software from Trimble, and eCMS® construction enterprise resource planning.

eCMS Connect for Prolog is built on a flexible and efficient Web Services platform, enabling near real-time data exchange and standardized business processes across field project operations and corporate financial management disciplines. The integration of the two solutions allows for a single point of data entry, which can then be displayed and used across the enterprise resulting in consistent and accurate information and allowing for automated business processes across the organization.

“We’re pleased with the possibilities that we see emerging from our collaboration with Computer Guidance Corporation,” stated Jon Fingland, Business Area Manager of General Contractor and Construction Manager Division within the Trimble Buildings Group. “By developing bi-directional data exchange capabilities with Computer Guidance, we are able to provide our customers with access to accurate, business-critical information housed within the two industry-leading solutions whenever and wherever it is needed.”
