API Group Inc., parent company to more than 40 independently managed fire protection, industrial and specialty construction companies throughout North America and the United Kingdom, has selected ADEACA ONE to standardize the entire organization on one business system to support the company’s growth.
Throughout its history, the local offices of APi Group choose their own technology systems, making it difficult for the company’s business leaders to collect, analyze and use the massive amounts of data flowing into the organization every day.
Because project tracking details and financial data were spread across multiple companies and systems, it was extremely challenging for APi Group’s executives to have a good understanding of the business.
By 2014, APi Group realized it needed a better way to manage projects to improve effectiveness, ensure positive outcomes in its work and remain competitive.
Like other project-based companies, APi Group knew that to successfully fulfill its contracts with its customers, project managers had to accurately plan the work, understand the status of each job in real time, and accurately forecast the final cost of the project.
The company also knew that not having real-time insight into its delivery operations would decrease profits and increase risk. So APi Group decided to migrate the entire organization onto one common business system capable of scaling to meet the company’s growing business.
APi Group’s main goal was to improve its ability to create one common platform across the organization to gain timely insight into its projects. The company wanted to track its delivery operations in real time as well as manage its global portfolio of large-scale projects.
After looking at a number of products and extensively vetting them, including Oracle/JD Edwards, SAP and Microsoft Dynamics AX, the company selected ADEACA ONE software as its platform.
APi Group selected ADEACA ONE because of the simplicity of its design and its ability to gain control of the planning, monitoring and delivery of its projects.
With ADEACA ONE APi Group can gain real-time insight into its projects and reliable metrics into performance, thereby reducing risk and increasing profitability.
To ensure successful deployment and adoption, the project leveraged a wide variety of cross-functional business experts from APi Group’s existing companies to design, configure and test the system.
ADEACA ONE will help APi Group save time and money and allow for more flexibility for the project manager whose ability to interact with the system will be a lot simpler.
With ADEACA ONE, project managers and company leaders across APi Group will have better information at their fingertips to help the company make better decisions and improve the delivery and productivity of its projects.
Put simply: The information will get to the right people at the right time quickly and easily.
