The wealth of experience gained over the thirty years prior to 2000 working with many clients has
given the staff of ECS a vast knowledge of implementing contract and accounting software in the construction industry, as
well as the wider market place. Our expertise extends beyond mere product knowledge and implementation skills. Having worked
in a customer facing environment, ECS can draw on their strong business knowledge to ensure that any solution matches as closely
as possible, to the client's requirements.
- Business Systems Analysis
The staff of ECS have previously drawn on their knowledge of the Construction Industry to produce
design documentation following a requirements gathering exercise. ECS have their own style of documentation but are more than
happy to abide by customer's styles and standards.
We all know how important it is to get an agreement between the business and IT on what is required and how it will
be developed and delivered. ECS can be instrumental in documenting the business requirement and converting this into technical
requirements and specifications before any coding begins.
ECS staff have implemented software solutions in a wide variety of client environments, from small 6-8 user systems to
corporate solutions used by >100 users. ECS can provide a comprehensive service from software configuration to end-user
training and support operations. ECS staff have technical skills in both Unix and Windows technologies. Please take a look

of solutions are meat and drink to ECS. There is today a great demand to integrate data from enterprise-wide systems into
PC Desktop products and Internet/Intranet tools. ECS can provide the answers. Because we have in-depth knowledge of both the
tools which manipulate, and the database technologies which provide the information, the development of accurately focused
solutions is a real and economic prospect. There really isn't the need to spend vast sums on obtaining a workable and
relevant reporting framework for your business.
Because we have so much experience in the above areas, who better to fulfil your training needs. ECS have conducted many
end-user training courses in all aspects of the application software within our wide scope of experience. Both of us have
strong track records of providing quality training, explaining complex software requirements with strong, relevant business
Others might refer to this more grandly as "Facility Management". We will gladly discuss your requirements,
whether it be a short-term emergency to provide holiday cover, or whether it be a longer term agreement to provide a structured
support role. Our experience in working in diverse client environments means that we are well placed to provide a reliable
backup for your own key staff.
We have experience of running projects in their entirety, from project scoping to sign-off, either as individuals or
as team leaders. We can therefore manage a project for you, either using ECS skills or those of third party suppliers and/or
subcontractors. We would be pleased to hear from you about planned projects, so why not fill out an enquiry?
