ERP for the

Construction Industry

It is often said that the many challenges facing the construction, building and trades industry is defined by the projects undertaken.

For example, most construction businesses always have multiple projects on the go, and some of them take months or years to complete.

Projects start with tender documents, followed by quotes delivered to the customer. So begins a long and detailed data trail.

Within each project are numerous smaller tasks, each with a list of labour and equipment requirements, a bill of materials and a schedule for completion.

Each task requires skilled tradesmen, who have to be paid, sub-contractors, likewise, and the costs of materials and equipment usage must also be recorded to ensure the project is conforming to the budget that the customer has agreed to.

Multiply all these factors across however many jobs the business has on the go, and the task of managing all this data appears mind-boggling.

This is why construction and building firms need fully integrated business systems capable of handling complex data sets and delivering information that is crucial to the viability of the business.


MYOB ERP software is built fo it

Intelligent business systems save construction and building businesses time and money. They can automate manual tasks, reduce paperwork, enable sensible process change and provide valuable KPIs on departments and staff members.

By eliminating multiple data entry and enabling automated approvals and alerts, they can streamline business practices and boost efficiency.

An MYOB ERP solution is able to change and expand alongside your business. New functions can be added easily, third-party apps can be integrated, and the whole system can be delivered via the Cloud, for greater ease of access and capital cost savings.

New divisions or companies can easily added by designing templates that are just filled out and dropped into the system. Inter-company consolidations are simplified, as is regulatory compliance for health and safety. Payroll adjustments, taxation and multi-currency transactions can all be automated.

All this functionality provides a platform for growth and better-informed management.
