As noted on the Natural Resources Canada website, there are “...over 825,000 kilometers of transmission, gathering, and distribution lines in Canada, [and with] most provinces having significant pipeline infrastructure, a huge portion are federally regulated.”
With such a competitive market, HVAC projects, both short and long-term, demand a solid database management system to monitor a wide variety of mechanical systems. HVAC contractors must remain diligent in every aspect of their jobs to offer consistent, quality results.
To make this easier, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system helps decision-makers monitor all aspects of their projects with real-time data, customized dashboards, complete transparency, and more opportunities for collaboration. An ERP also offers mobile capabilities, automation, and a single database with highly organized, easily accessible data.
With mobile capabilities, field managers can assess project costs and generate financials on demand through their mobile devices. Payrolls are handled more efficiently regardless of the number of independent contractors/vendors, and tax requirements are automatically accounted for in job quotes as well as payroll.
Often, the responsibility of tracking the information related to these projects continues long after a pipeline is finished. In fact, according to the National Resources Canada agency, it’s the responsibility of the National Energy Board to oversee the complete lifecycle of every project. The National Energy Board holds “... companies accountable for compliance, including meeting regulatory requirements, project commitments and approval conditions.”
Companies need to respond quickly to inspections and audits to make sure they can prove they are in compliance. ERP software makes this possible.
