OUR SERVICES

Contracts Monitoring

Our focus is to minimize our client’s losses during contract executions.

Sextante’s contract monitoring provides early-on detection of potential adverse situations and structured follow-up processes in case such situations occur, supporting the coordination of mitigation activities and data gathering.

The work is usually split into two sequential phases. The first focuses on the analysis of contractual documents and the issuance of diagnostic reports. The second phase focuses on a continuous monitoring of the key aspects of the contract – scope, planning and cost – to identify deviations and propose action plans.

Our experience in complex contracts ensures:

  • Information reliability
  • Results-oriented action plans
  • Outstanding technical, legal and commercial performance

AICO - Management Software

AICO is a software developed by Sextante focused on integrating, structuring and streamlining management processes in construction sites, bringing the field closer to the office.

The software leverages Sextante’s decade-long experience with contract management to tackle the many challenges project managers face in their day-to-day routine, such as unstructured processes, lack of team communication and limited data traceability.
