Hill-PCI Software Services History
Hill-PCI Software Services was established in 1996 as a construction scheduling and claims service organization under the name PCI Group, LLC. In servicing clients, Hill-PCI consultants established expertise in Primavera software products and began offering software training and implementation. In the year 2000, Hill-PCI became an official VAR for the Prolog Manager Product line while continuing to provide services for Primavera Products.
By 2004 Hill-PCI experienced record growth in the scheduling and claims business. There was also tremendous success with Hill-PCI and became the #1 VAR for Meridian Systems’ Prolog for 2005, 2006, and 2007. In August of 2008 Hill-PCI was acquired by Hill International.
The Hill-PCI scheduling and claims business was a natural fit for the Hill International business model and was absorbed into Hill Internationalís core business. The Project Controls Software and Services portion of the Hill-PCI business operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of Hill International.
