Industries

Successful contractors typically have a reputation for delivering projects on time and on budget. And contractors who invest in information technology (IT) are executing projects more efficiently, delivering a higher quality product, and improving employee satisfaction.

The right financial and operational software translates into a clear competitive advantage that reveals itself not only in the project bidding and execution phases but, more importantly, in maintaining the company's bottom line.

Microsoft Dynamics provides powerful systems designed to help construction organizations manage complex business processes without the burden of a large, expensive IT infrastructure. These solutions can assist you in reducing costs while increasing value, improving interactions with customers and suppliers, and making faster, smarter decisions.

Benefits of Microsoft Dynamics solutions for the construction industry
Microsoft Dynamics solutions can help your company:

  • Integrate business operations. Integrated software systems support key business processes such as project management, purchasing, and managing labor costs, all with the flexibility to adapt to changing requirements. Stakeholders have common information and management tools at their disposal, improving efficiencies and driving profitability.


  • Manage projects more effectively. Gain immediate access to data across the entire organization. Integrated project management provides accurate information that can lead to better decision-making and a positive impact on your bottom line. Construction activities are scheduled and executed in a timely manner, and project managers can spend more time scheduling labor, materials, and subcontractors.

    Automate office operations. Streamline office tasks through process automation. Automate time and material billing processes, and create invoices automatically using predetermined business rules to calculate costs. This helps enable you to spend more time on value-added services that contribute directly to an increased return on investment (ROI).


  • Streamline internal communications. Portal solutions can help you increase collaboration through a rich, browser-based interface. Use the portal to review and publish role-specific documents, reports, queries, and announcements. Tailor key business indicators and functions to a specific role or project, and provide employees with information to manage their jobs more effectively. Share project document libraries to more efficiently organize teams, meetings, and deliverables. And robust security and user-based access helps protect business-critical information while keeping data available.


  • Improve customer relations. Deploying robust software applications can help you improve client relationships and increase customer retention. Customer relationship management (CRM) solutions assist with managing and tracking all customer-facing activities. Through every stage of the project, from inception through completion, CRM solutions help you manage customer contacts through a guided process with defined rules, automated routing, notifications, approvals, and escalations.
