Contractors

To succeed in today’s competitive world, structural steel contractors in the energy industry have to win more bids and ensure they do their jobs better than their rivals. And that means they have to deliver their projects on time and on budget.

However, that’s often easier said than done because of the complexity of a typical structural steel project. Among other things, structural steel contractors have to coordinate and collaborate with a variety of other construction trade sectors, including architects, general contractors, masons, engineers, carpenters, and electricians.

To ensure the design, engineering and installation of the steel for use in bridges, buildings, and other infrastructure isn’t compromised, a structural steel contractor in the energy sector must operate efficiently and provide the top level of quality workmanship as well as safety on the job.

Therefore, structural steel contractors must meet high global standards for structural steel design, fabrication and erection in commercial buildings, industrial settings, bridges and other construction. From planning through execution, structural steel contractors have to efficiently, accurately and flawlessly manage and integrate the detailing, production and construction of all types of steel structures.

Structural steel contractors have to manage purchase orders, detailed product specifications, volumes and delivery schedules. And they have to do it as cost-effectively as possible while still delivering top-notch customer service

Project Based

Estimators and project managers have to work together to ensure a project is profitable. Supervisors need real-time access to the most current set of plans to keep the project on schedule. And all stakeholders need to easily share this information because communication keeps everyone up-to-date on the progress of a project and enables project managers to make the right decisions at the right time and ensure the success of the project.

Challenges

Consequently, structural steel contractors in the energy industry need project management software they can use to manage purchase orders, detailed product specifications, volumes and delivery schedules. Software that can help them optimize cyclical production demands, improve supply chain efficiencies and be more competitive.

To help manage the complexity and volume of data, structural steel contractors typically implement disparate project management tools but their business operations continue to run inefficiently. Advanced technology is key to helping structural steel contractors deliver projects more efficiently

Project ERP

Unfortunately, most ERP packages are too limited or segmented in their functionality to allow true project lifecycle management to structural steel contractors. The solution is to integrate all these functions into one Project ERP system that will enable project-driven firms like structural contractors to create business rules to enforce their critical processes

With Project ERP software, all their standard processes are documented, and all operations and results are tracked and logged to meet their reporting requirements.

Project ERP software helps ensure the success of their projects by enabling structural steel contractors to communicate expectations, goals, needs, resources, status reports, budgets and purchase requests on a regular basis to the various business functions.
The premise of Project ERP is that accurate and timely information must flow seamlessly between the various business functions. That way decision-makers will not only have visibility into what’s going on inside the enterprise, they’ll also have greater control over all parts of the business.

Proposition

By choosing ADEACA’s Project ERP solution to help manage day-to-day project operations, structural steel contractors can meet their project goals and deadlines. With a true Project ERP system like the one offered by ADEACA, structural steel contractors in the energy sector can:

  • Effectively evaluate the profitability of projects in the sales phase and maintain that profitability through planning, design, and development
  • Ensure high cost equipment and resources are utilized effectively across a portfolio of projects
  • Reduce margin variance and cost overruns by showing exactly which resources and equipment will be available prior to project start
  • Improve post-delivery service opportunities by coming in on time and on budget more often
  • Quickly respond to scope changes and other external delays, including the impact across their portfolio of projects
  • Provide a clear real time view of their utilization and profitability across their entire portfolios of projects and clients
  • Enable close collaboration between their people, no matter where in the world they are based
  • Effectively manage time, costs, resources, contracts, and changes in a single solution

Generic ERP just doesn’t work for project-based businesses like structural steel industry contractors. In fact, implementing an enterprise ERP system could even hinder productivity and profitability.

Project ERP software from ADEACA, on the other hand, will enable structural steel contractors in the energy industry to effectively manage and control their client engagements and all related processes while at the same time provide the required insights into business performance. This means they can operate more efficiently, make timely and informed business decisions, reduce risks and increase profitability.
