The Ins and Outs of Construction Software
B2W Software (www.b2wsoftware.com) | Paul McKeon, CEO
Why Buy: As margin pressure, competition and job complexity intensify, specialized software is providing heavy civil construction companies with imperative opportunities to improve estimating and operational performance as well as profitability.
Critical capabilities include a modern architecture that can run applications fast and reliably, accommodate the latest features and scale up as needs evolve. Individual applications must be designed for the specific requirements and challenges of the construction environment so they are easy to deploy and learn and intuitive to use. There are also huge efficiency, accuracy and collaboration advantages when applications for estimating and operational workflows — including scheduling and dispatching, field tracking and equipment maintenance — work together within a unified platform with one source for operational data such as employee, equipment and job information.
Finally, an enterprise-wide application for data capture and analysis allows companies to capture and analyze data from their operational platform, electronic forms and other sources and turn it into actionable intelligence delivered where and when employees need it to make more informed, data-driven decisions.
Product Spotlight: B2W Inform is a mobile-first data capture and analysis solution. The software mines data enterprise-wide to generate reports, dashboards and alerts, providing construction companies with timely, accurate information delivered where and when they need it to improve operational performance, safety, quality and financial outcomes. Fast, easy creation and management of highly configurable form templates also enable companies to expand and structure data collection, replace inefficient paper-based processes, capture richer content in real time and connect field and office employees anytime, anywhere and on any device.
