An engineering and consulting company, with offices in Hong Kong and the USA, wanted to develop a financial management system for companies offering professional services in the AEC industry. The proposed system would have the facility of cost planning, tracking, and control with budgeting for the multiple projects. The system would be integrated with modules for time reporting and invoices management.

Nathan Ark's end-to-end involvement in the engagement, from business modeling to solution implementation, spanned the development and integration of multiple systems and packages as part of the financial management system. A cutting-edge, scalable and modular solution based on a robust architecture was developed to meet the client's requirements. The application also has an exhaustive built-in help system to guide different levels of users on the features of the application. New features planned included internationalization for use in China and other countries.
