Carahsoft and AECOM: ‘New Opportunities For Public Participation’
Mauricio Palomino, global digital leader for SaaS/Hosted services at AECOM, commented:
“Major infrastructure projects tend to be highly technical and dense, which creates a barrier for participation, transparency and efficiency. With the addition of the PlanEngage platform to Carahsoft’s solutions portfolio, public sector agencies can now streamline communication and collaboration across complex projects to minimize risk and improve outcomes. We look forward to working with Carahsoft and its reseller partners to provide easy access to tools and solutions from the Digital AECOM product suite.”
Lacey Wean, sales director, leader of the AECOM team at Carahsoft, said:
“We are thrilled to add Digital AECOM’s PlanEngage to our solutions suite and help agencies streamline standard paper-based project planning. The digital platform creates opportunities for public participation in large-scale infrastructure projects, enabling widespread collaboration and increased productivity. We look forward to working with AECOM and our reseller partners to create greater project transparency and efficiency for our Public Sector customers.”
