Computer Guidance Corporation, the leading developer of financial and project management software solutions for architecture, engineering and construction companies, today announced that Motor City Electric Co. has signed a multi-year contract for the Hosted eCMS solution to secure a long-term IT business continuity plan.

Motor City Electric Co. has been a Computer Guidance customer for almost 30 years and an eCMS v.3.7.0 customer since 2009. Motor City Electric’s decision to move from the Enterprise eCMS solution to Computer Guidance’s Hosted eCMS was driven by the need to implement an enterprise-class IT business continuity solution.

“As we evaluated our business continuity plan, we determined that Hosted eCMS is the right solution for us because it combines integrated disaster recovery and managed services for solution maintenance to simplify our IT business processes,” stated Patrick Mitchell, Controller, Motor City Electric Co. With Computer Guidance’s managed hosted solution offerings, we can now better optimize our IT infrastructure, allowing for future capital expenditure savings.”

“Our managed hosting offerings start with our Hosted eCMS construction management solution, but it does not stop there. We also offer an enterprise-class High-Availability and Disaster Recovery solution for our customers,” stated Roger D. Kirk, President/CEO, Computer Guidance Corporation. “Computer Guidance has invested significant efforts and resources in support of our customers’ data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity initiatives. We are pleased to welcome Motor City Electric Co. as our largest Hosted eCMS customer, taking advantage of all our managed hosted offerings.”
