Digital transformation for engineering & construction businesses

The engineering and construction industry deals with the unique challenges that come with selling a complex project that involves diverse equipment and services that can be invoiced in a myriad of ways.

Big players, big numbers and booming business: the engineering and construction industry has experienced a decade-long growth period. With so many agile new companies active in the sector and new project-related trends to tackle, engineering and construction firms have to streamline business management, automate back-office processes and integrate multiple systems to keep up.

By implementing a comprehensive IT tool that serves key sector needs, project-driven companies of all sizes can win big in precision, reliability, efficiency and effectiveness. A central place where employees can plan and manage projects doesn’t just optimise efficiency, though. It also gives a company the power to gain insights from business data to drive sales, decision-making and continuous improvement. 

Complexities of project industry business activities

  • Incompatibility of engineering bills of material and assembly bills of materials
  • Manifold, complex machines are difficult to assemble and schedule to adhere to tight delivery dates
  • Complex and changing production cycles driven by a variety of different strategies
  • Financial and invoice management
  • Intricate logistics flows

These specific challenges require innovative new solutions to digitisation implemented by people who know the business.
