Let your data show you the way
Like any business, your firm generates data—and lots of it. But how you use it is what matters most; and it must help you look forward rather than into the past. Putting your data to work can be a challenge, but HSO can help. With a combination of Microsoft’s leading technology and our AEC industry expertise, we’ll help you gain true, data-driven insights that improves the way you do business.

Our team can help you create and deploy role-based Power BI content to provide your employees with the information they need to make informed business decisions.
Find and win more work
Your firm needs to keep the pipeline full and win rates up. That requires insight, which requires data. We can help you apply advanced analytics to uncover new opportunities with both existing clients and prospective new clients, gain valuable insights into your relationships and experience, and build a steady stream of new projects that drive growth and financial performance.
Deliver better projects while maximizing profitability
Your project teams must balance project profitability with performance. Many factors can impact both, from inaccurate or unrealistic project estimates to ineffective resource management. Without visibility into areas like burn rates and progress, your bottom line and your firm’s reputation can take a hit. We can help you keep all these factors under control—even stay out ahead of them—with predictive analytics and reporting that will help your project managers build more informed project plans, better manage resources, and keep budgets under control.
Accelerate your firm’s cash flow
Accounting teams must control cash flow, but there are many factors that threaten it. Capturing time and expenses, billing clients, and collecting cash can all get caught in a web of complex, lengthy approval processes. Our predictive analytics can give you better insights into your cash flow and help you optimize your most valuable financial resource.
