Woolpert Selects Dynamics 365 and aec360 to Enable Cloud Transformation Initiative

Leading international architecture, engineering, and geospatial firm selects Microsoft Dynamics 365 and aec360 as its next generation cloud business application platform

Atlanta, GA – October 4, 2021: HSO ProServ, author of the aec360 business management suite, today announced that Woolpert has selected Microsoft Dynamics 365 and aec360 as the firm’s new cloud-based business management platform. Woolpert and aec360 will begin working together immediately to deploy an integrated marketing, business development, project management, accounting, human resource management, and business intelligence platform based on the Microsoft cloud.

Founded in 1911, and with over 1,600 employees working out of 60 office locations across multiple countries, Woolpert is the premier architecture, engineering, geospatial (AEG), and strategic consulting firm, providing multi-disciplinary services to public, private, and government clients around the world. The firm is the fastest-growing AEG firm in the United States, ascending to a leadership position as an ENR Top 150 Global Design Firm.

“Woolpert is committed to a vision to be the world’s premier AEG firm and one of the best companies in the world,” explained Keith Zecchini, Chief Technology Officer for Woolpert. “A key enabler of this vision is to leverage the best and most modern software platforms available to help manage our business. After our legacy software provider announced the sunsetting of our current system, we surveyed the market for new, cloud-based business applications that could help us take our business to the next level over the next 10 to 15 years and beyond. Microsoft Dynamics 365 and aec360 stood out as the most complete and sophisticated alternative to meet the long-term needs of our business.”

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is Microsoft’s next-generation business application suite, built to leverage the power of the Microsoft cloud, Office 365 (now Microsoft 365), the Power Platform, and Microsoft’s advanced intelligence tools. The aec360 industry solution pre-configures and extends Dynamics 365 to meet the unique needs of the architecture, engineering, and consulting (AEC) industry, helping firms like Woolpert gain a 360-degree view of their finances, projects, clients, and people within a single cloud platform.

Through the implementation of Dynamics 365 and aec360, Woolpert will take advantage of the #1 cloud for business to drive better integration, collaboration, and insights across their business. We’re very excited to help Woolpert successfully complete this transformation and position the firm for continued growth and success well into the future.”
