Executive Support System (ESS)

Definition - What does Executive Support System (ESS) mean?

An Executive Support System (ESS) is software that allows users to transform enterprise data into quickly accessible and executive-level reports, such as those used by billing, accounting and staffing departments. An ESS enhances decision making for executives.

ESS is also known as Executive Information System (EIS).

Techopedia explains Executive Support System (ESS)

An ESS facilitates access to organized enterprise and departmental data while providing analysis utilities and performance assessment predictors. An ESS provides potential outcomes and quick statistical data that are applied to decision making processes.

Ultimately, ESS reporting tools and results are contingent on developer and industry application. For example, Cambridge Systematics, Inc. built an ESS that is integrated with the investment plan for the Ministry of Transportation in Canada. This ESS version includes features that contrast the version used by Medical Information Technology, Inc. (MEDITECH).
