The challenge faced by Automated Logic

ALC sought a solution to address several challenges including implementing consistent Project Management processes, improving upfront planning and collaboration, establishing resource/capacity management, accessing project documentation via the mobile, document and financial control, and improving reporting. A key element for them was the integration with their existing financial system to manage project forecasting through the Cora solution.

Capabilities Cora bring:

We established a consistent Project Management process for Automated Logic integrated into their enterprise systems providing consistent reporting/dashboards with project data resident in a secure cloud server accessible to field teams via mobile apps. The implementation minimized disruptions associated with change and provided an easy-to-use, intuitive system.


  • Visibility has increased across all projects with specific dashboards and reports displaying key project and financial data, giving Automated Logic’s team instant, accurate project status updates.
  • Early warning signs are now available through a number of compliance indicators which is helping to reduce project/budget deviation.
  • Control and visibility of all resources across all areas allowing for top-down capacity planning across Automated Logic’s entire organization.
