ADEACA PBA™ for Construction and Engineering (AEC/CEC)
Project Business Automation™
Construction business is notorious for its complexity, but also known for its disjointed tools and systems - which is not a great combination.
Learn how PBA can provide process integration, real-time insight, and better outcomes.
From Point Solutions to Project Business Automation
Standardize, integrate, automate project business processes with ADEACA PBA™ + Microsoft Dynamics 365
Real-time insight, lower risk, better outcomes
Disjointed Point Solutions Cause Crucial Delays & Errors
Construction companies constantly need to realign downstream activities due to project schedule revisions or change orders. Typically this requires significant manual intervention in terms of translating, mapping and consolidating data from multiple point solutions. At best, this slows the organization down. At worst, it means schedule changes go unnoticed, EAC is not computed, variances are not projected and change orders are based on guesswork.
Delayed Insight vs. Real Time
When business processes span multiple point solutions and rely on manual intervention, tasks that should be done daily are managed weekly or monthly. When data must be mapped, translated and consolidated, critical metrics are only generated monthly or after contract close-out rather than on demand and in real time.
The business impact of managing your construction business in disjointed point solutions is real and significant. It not only leaves the organization unable to react efficiently to changing circumstances and client requirements it also inhibits the ability to take timely and corrective action through early detection of disruptions and variations, which raises mitigation costs and erodes margins.
Project Business Automation Delivers Real-time Integration & Insight
With Microsoft Dynamics 365 and ADEACA’s Project Business Automation™ (PBA) you can take back control of your construction business - stop managing data and start managing projects.
Eliminate Reliance on Point Solutions
Most construction companies rely on multiple poorly integrated point solutions to manage their construction business. A typical setup includes Primavera P6 or Microsoft Project for project planning, ERP for back office activities and a host of Excel spreadsheets and homegrown applications to fill in the caps.
Point Solutions = Inefficient
Unintegrated, specialty business applications for scheduling, resourcing, budget management and costing may serve their own isolated business purpose but do little to improve productivity and profitability or to provide much needed timely and actionable business intelligence.
ADEACA’s Project Business Automation™ (PBA) helps construction companies eliminate point solutions and enables them to manage the complete customer engagement within a single collaborative solution. From baseline budgeting and scheduling through MRP, procurement, fabrication and change management to subcontract management, resource management, EACs and the month-end process. All you need to run your construction business in one solution.
Why PBA Makes Sense for Construction
Disconnected Processes & Data Lead to Poor Performance
Construction companies suffer from massive inefficiencies arising from operational and system silos. Disconnected processes and poor visibility results in errors, inflated costs and stagnant productivity.
Construction companies need sophisticated operational and financial project management capabilities far beyond mainstream ERP
What’s more, operational and financial project plans must be inter-linked and connect tightly with back-office activities, like procurement, time and expense reports, cash-flow projections, payment plans, inventory consumption, and MRP.
By embedding sophisticated project capabilities within Microsoft’s flagship ERP, ADEACA PBA™ enables construction companies to run their entire business within a single solution. Streamlining and automating end-to-end business processes improves the organization’s ability to react to changing circumstances, minimize costly mistakes and effectively manage disruptions to project schedules and financial performance.
