“When we first implemented Cora, the expectation was a 1-2% net-recovered margin in our projects just from streamlined efficiency, from having a one-stop-shop. We’ve achieved that – we’ve gotten our 2% net-recovered margin across the business, across our execution platform. All things are thumbs up as far as the results of using Cora has been.”
