Are your projects ready for the Real-Time Economy? Real-time enterprise operations is not simply about speeding up information flow. It is also about being able to monitor your entire portfolio continuously and react instantly when conditions change.

Contractors

For general contractors doing construction right means ensuring all the details are right because all too often things just don’t go as planned.

There’s a lot of information connected with every construction project that general contractors in the utilities sector have to consider, including closing requests for information; getting the precise information for submittals; and ensuring there are written sign-offs for change orders rather than merely quick verbal approvals. Get these details wrong and they can seriously affect the profits for the entire construction project.

The members of the project team have to be responsible for getting things done but because there’s just so much going on, it’s hard to track every detail. Of course, general contractors in the utilities industry can speed up the process to save time and money, however the accuracy of the information will suffer.

It can seem almost impossible to organize and manage numerous documents, including thousands of emails, multiple revisions to drawings as well as other communications flying back and forth between team members located around town, across the state, or even throughout the world.

Project Based

Take into consideration, the different versions and contract updates, project plans, insurance documents, RFIs, submittals, and change orders and the amount of paperwork seems endless.

To be successful, general contractors in the utilities industry must achieve consistent, repeatable profit margins on each construction project and that means having the information necessary to keep track of every detail, no matter how small. The problem is that when things go wrong – and they will – companies already operating on tight profit margins can become unprofitable.

Challenges

General contractors need a system that lets them gain control of all of this project information. They also have to be able to distribute and reallocate their materials and resources at a moment’s notice to ensure their projects don’t become completely unprofitable. They need software that lets owners, engineers, specialty contractors and architects, collaborate and stay informed about the progress of their projects.

Because they serve such diverse markets, it’s important for general contractors to know which projects are having problems and which are most profitable. Having a 360-degree view of all of their projects enables companies to better forecast the profitability of future projects.

As a project-driven business, every step depends on the previous step and the ability to effectively manage subcontracts and collaborate on projects are absolute necessities. That’s why the entire project must be integrated into one powerful project management software solution.

Project ERP

General contractors in the utilities sector need a totally integrated Project ERP system designed for construction so they can efficiently manage their operations, manage risk, and remain competitive.

As the construction industry continues to increase the speed by which it operates and general contractors fight harder for each project, enterprise resource planning systems have become critical components for everyday business. General contractors need technology solutions to enhance the productivity and efficiency of their teams – in the field and in the office.

Project ERP systems allow general contractors to make critical information available to multiple people, in multiple locations for a variety of reasons and uses.
