What is Noveco?

Noveco is a family of seamlessly integrated software components designed to complement and enhance SAP Project System (PS). It adds new functionality into SAP PS including cost and revenue estimating, project dates scheduling, cost forecasting, progress analysis, variation management, risk analysis, resource & capacity planning, cash flow forecasting, calculate accruals, powerful reporting with graphical representation of project KPIs and drill down capabilities.

Noveco is a simple alternative to complex SAP Commercial Project Management (CPM). It’s built to enhance and simplify SAP Project System, by creating a single integrated platform for end-to-end project management directly in SAP without the need for Excel spreadsheets or additional third-party tools.


Noveco is not a stand-alone application that you need to integrate to SAP PS.  It does not have its own database, therefore once installed, Noveco becomes part of your SAP system.

It is natively real-time, since it requires no interfaces, no middleware,  no BW/BI, no Remote Function Calls etc.

Noveco will enhance your Project System to enable integrated project lifecycle management directly within your SAP system, excel sheet free!
