The ECOS Platform provides the core software services needed for Community Service Programs (CSP) such as security, a central database, document management and many others. ECOS offers the best practices of businesses to the Community Service Program network. Each individual CSP such as LIHEAP and Weatherization are separate Enterprise Software (ES) modules joined together in the ECOS platform.
The system is highly configurable enabling our partners to select program modules, incorporate agency policies and business processes, even customize branding by program.
The ECOS solution is designed with the user in mind. We customize our training and support to each partner. and work together to formulate a training plan suited to the specific needs of the agency. ECOS is designed to be user-friendly and provides intelligent user guidance and data validation throughout the application to assist the user and ensure program compliance. We provide hosting for the ECOS Platform on the highly secure Microsoft Azure Cloud. We also collaborate with our partners to install ECOS on-site at partner location if needed.
The Agency Level ES displays, manages and stores all data to support the administration and delivery of multiple programs in one IT platform. Agency level ES provides a comprehensive and integrated view of the entire agency. Agency level resource planning can be achieved with ES at the state agency level, an individual Community Action Agency level or at the program level.
Program Level ES integrates all core business functions or an individual program in one system, providing a comprehensive and unparalleled view of all program data. For example, the Weatherization ES joins together the financial management, administration, intake, analytics, grant management, energy audit/job management, and document storage in one system.
