ICS has announced enhancements to its line of software products that include the advanced cost-estimating solution, CONCERTO. In addition to the estimating solution, the company has also released a new software tool named COSMOS.

Target applications include building automation, fire, access, security and integration projects.

COSMOS is a design and submittal preparation tool that operates as a stand-alone utility or can be fully integrated with the Concerto estimating solution for a unique advantage.

COSMOS highlights include:

    1. Organization and assembly of Project Submittal information.

    2. Management of schematics, B.O.M. equipment lists, sequences of operations, product data sheets, and any other project details for submittal to clients or installation package preparation.

    3. Creation of system schematics direct from item database, drag and drop.

    4. Creation of valve, I/O point and damper schedules.

    5. Electronic conversion between fact-based Cost Estimates and System Designs.

    6. Support of as-built documentation preparation, including cost comparisons and retention of information for future data harvesting.
