Do you remember when filing cabinets were a staple in the office? And then, even when technology started taking off, maybe you weren’t quite adverse to the idea of using technology, but still – certain types of critical information, like client contracts, lead developments, and all that project documentation just seemed safer physically within arm’s reach.
Now that you’ve expanded your business, however, there are several issues you might be having. One being that with so much new business, you and your staff are spending all of your time thumbing through what seems like a million client folders to find the right document. Another being that maybe you’ve expanded so much that you have more than one location and/or the need to work both on location and out of the office. In that situation, you don’t even have access to client or contract information because your filing cabinet isn’t anywhere near you.
Technically, these are great problems to have, because who doesn’t want to start a business and have it expand? The problem, of course, is that now you’re spending too much time searching for things, and your filing cabinets aren’t in the right place at the right time, and some of your documents have been misfiled – and all these things equal bad customer service.
So today you should be using a customized Sage 300 software platform designed specifically for heavy construction project management. Its functions include modules on project management, estimating, full accounting services, including payroll, and service management. In addition, the ability to allocate work schedules and resources assigned on a per-project basis make cost projects and expense tracking easier.
With a lot of capital invested in expensive machinery, having Sage 300 can save you money as a predictive maintenance strategy that tracks the full life cycles of parts and keeps you apprised of your parts inventory. As a result, equipment downtime is nearly non-existent.
Moreover, employees are able to collaborate while at off-site work environments, vendors can be contacted about their orders, change orders can be verified and tracked with accurate histories on file, etc. – all because of Sage 300’s mobile capabilities.
In short, the overall return on investment from the purchase and implementation of Sage 300 will surpass your expectations.
