RESTON, Va., March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a partnership with AECOM, the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, to provide Digital AECOM’s industry-leading PlanEngage™ platform to the Public Sector. Bringing together over 2,000 digital practitioners, Digital AECOM combines AECOM’s digital consulting services and products. As digital experts and trusted advisers to the architecture, engineering, and construction industries, Digital AECOM is the bridge between the digital and infrastructure worlds, equipped to create a more sustainable and equitable future, and to deliver a better world.

“Major infrastructure projects tend to be highly technical and dense, which creates a barrier for participation, transparency and efficiency,” said Mauricio Palomino, Global Digital Leader for SaaS/Hosted Services at AECOM. “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.”
AECOM’s PlanEngage platform provides extensive opportunities for stakeholders to understand a project, its impacts and potential before it advances. The platform facilitates deeper engagement and informed consent while driving better and more cost-effective project decisions. Easily accessible in the cloud, and simple to use, the PlanEngage platform enables agencies to create, edit, and publish highly visual and interactive communication throughout the life cycle of the project – including videos, 360-degree project progress images, visualizations, project dashboards, and more.
The PlanEngage platform can be used across a wide variety of projects such as transportation, active transport, alternative energy and defense, resilience and sustainability, natural capital accounting, environmental approvals and management, and master planning.
“We are thrilled to add Digital AECOM’s PlanEngage to our solutions suite and help agencies streamline standard paper-based project planning,” said Lacey Wean, Sales Director who leads the AECOM Team at Carahsoft. “The digital platform creates opportunities for public participation in large-scale infrastructure projects, enabling widespread collaboration and increased productivity.
