Common Construction Industry Problems

Managing a construction business is one of the most complex businesses and requires a lot of coordination. Between teams, vendors, and customers, time sensitive tasks and delays can wreak havoc in your project plan.

A well-designed construction and project-based ERP solution can help you to optimize plans for raw materials, efficient use of labor, architectural designs, project schedules and more. Our customers love the way we help them:

  • Eliminate disruptions and cost escalations.
  • Manage projects end-to-end in one system, including:
  • Contracts
  • Commitment
  • Subcontracts
  • Purchase orders
  • Change orders
  • Retainage
  • Service management
  • Field workers

Reporting is something we hear about from all our construction industry customers. Inaccurate reporting and lack of real-time data have been the major reasons for delays in construction projects. Without this critical information, construction businesses are unable to determine pre-calculated estimates for accurate use of raw materials, minimize or eliminate production issues, shorten inventory, and more. Accurate reporting improves profitability and productivity across the board.

Communication between office and field teams can make or break your business.  Many construction firms report having organizational silos, meaning information doesn’t flow easily between departments.  Without this real-time communication, controlling costs, change orders, expenses, etc. can easily get out of control.

Additionally, construction firms typically use six to 10 software applications in tandem with their main accounting system. If these applications are legacy systems, they probably aren’t very well integrated—if they’re integrated at all. As a result, the entire staff will have to jump between screens just to perform routine tasks.
