Line at NEOM. One of the most ambitious projects currently in development by Atkins.

In just under one month, Keross implemented a completely tailored digital bid management tool that would enable WS Atkins to have a centralized, efficient and collaborative approach to pricing new projects.

Ikon allowed WS Atkins to link and centralize, in real-time, all relevant data sources such as Finance, ERP, Governance, HRMS, CRM, etc. Governed through a central dashboard, the summary of activities, assigned responsibilities and defined program are all accessible through a single platform.

Ikon further enabled the push & pull of data in real time, enabling the business to compare baselines for each iteration. Additional functionalities such as developing trends and analyzing discount margins were made available.

Single Source of Truth (real-time data integration & management).
Sandbox area allowing management to adjust bid, time or resource to see business impact.
Governance enforced by automating approval processes.
Geography and additional functionality enabled.
