Eos Group has received requests for an automated mapping feature in Cortex and plans to add this functionality in the future. In the meantime, here’s how you can use Google Maps to create a map in just a few easy steps!
When benchmarking a new project against past projects, it’s critical to level the playing field. Cortex calls this normalizing the data. In the Administration module, you can set up many different types of factor tables to adjust:
Common ground. Common source. Common basis. We use these words interchangeably when we talk about our data, but few companies have achieved it.
It’s impossible difficult to make good decisions as a team if you don’t agree on the data.

Programs pose a unique challenge for estimators hoping to capitalize on project history. Projects constructed as part of a group or program are often executed in fundamentally different ways than their stand-alone counterparts, which offers economies and efficiencies that do not exist for stand-alone projects.
