“FinancialForce.com will be an integral part of AECOM’s overall business strategy,” said Chris Amirault, vice president of strategic initiatives and business applications at AECOM. “Choosing FInancialForce.com provides us with the unique opportunity to leverage the Salesforce1 Platform, expanding our capabilities and offerings to our clients that expect premium project management. FinancialForce PSA will be a strategic differentiator and will help AECOM quickly achieve its goals and objectives in the market.”
With FinancialForce PSA’s offerings in its arsenal, AECOM aims to achieve full integration of its legacy systems in order to automate workflow and increase overall efficiency for project managers across all departments.
