THE REAL-TIME ECONOMY
The Real-Time Economy is the macro-trend in which business processes and value chains are becoming entirely digitized and connected so that data dissemination and business decisions are occurring closer and closer to real time. The Real-Time Economy is all around us. We see it in every facet of our lives, from the automated and immediate availability of products and services to instant updates on just about anything across all our devices.
This shift into the Real-Time Economy is not new. It has been occurring undeniably for some time. What is new is that this trend is now pervading project-based businesses.
As a Fire Protection Contractor in the engineering and construction sector, you have to deal with any number of demanding construction project management challenges. The installation of quality fire protection systems for customers is critical because the consequences can be devastating if a sprinkler system doesn’t adequately suppress a fire. No longer can fire protection contractors rely on paper-based work orders to meet the inspection and maintenance requirements of their customers.
As a project-based business, the Real-Time Economy is instilling new and more demanding expectations in your customers. The key to success is the ability to manage all of your projects, which vary in size and complexity, in real time.

DOING BUSINESS IN REAL TIME
FASTER RESPONSE. MORE CONTROL. LOWER RISK.
What does it mean to operate in real time?
It is about monitoring your entire project portfolio continuously with the ability to react immediately when situations change. Project insight, such as estimate at completion, variance, margins and risk profiles should be aggregated and accessed with the tap of a button. Armed with such real-time insight, you are better equipped to meet the demands of the Real-Time Economy by responding faster and exercising more control over risk, profitability, and cash flow.
SPECIFIC FIRE PROTECTION CHALLENGES
You also have to monitor and manage projects to comply with safety, quality, and productivity requirements as well as report to the general contractors about the progress of their projects and consult on any modifications that might be needed.
When it comes to fire protection contracting, each one of a company’s customers is different with different projects, different timelines, different needs, and different expectations. Keeping track of each specific project, while still maintaining service records and billing data accurately is challenging. A project-based company must be able to manage each project effectively despite the fact that it is unique.
As a fire protection contractor, you need a system that will enable you to solve your project collaboration and communication problems. It’s nearly impossible for fire protection contractors to address the multitude and magnitude of the challenges faced without an integrated system.
THE RIGHT SOLUTIONSimply put, as a fire protection contractor you need a totally integrated Project ERP system designed for construction so you can efficiently manage operations, manage risk, and remain competitive.
As the construction industry continues to increase the speed by which it operates and fire protection contractors fight harder for each project, enterprise resource planning systems have become critical components for everyday business. Project ERP systems allow fire protection contractors to make critical information available to multiple people, in multiple locations for a variety of reasons and uses.
ADEACA’s Project ERP solution is a complete project management software solution that’s designed specifically to meet the needs of fire protection contractors. Project ERP from ADEACA helps companies in the fire protection industry understand and control contracts.

>Addresses your entire project-based business, not just a part of it. With ADEACA ONE, the functions of ERP and operational project management are different aspects of the same system, working together in concert.
Only this comprehensive structure will enable you to meet the demands of the Real-Time Economy.
A one-size-fits-all ERP just doesn’t work for project-based businesses like fire protection companies in the engineering and construction sectors. In fact, implementing a generic enterprise ERP system could even hinder productivity and profitability. ADEACA’s Project ERP, on the other hand, can help fire protection contractors effectively manage and deliver their projects, achieve better results and grow their businesses.
