What is Cloud-Based Construction Software

There has never been a better time to transform your construction business with cloud-based construction software.

Acumatica’s Construction Edition software provides builders with the tools to help manage their budgets, commitments, and costs. Acumatica construction software also lets you link to contract details and record change orders, subcontracts, fees, warranty costs, and more. Keep on top of company-wide project schedules and the availability of key staff and resources.

Cloud-based construction software makes sense, especially now 

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted all sorts of businesses, and builders are not unaffected. More than most businesses, those in the construction industry can benefit from cloud-based construction software. You know how vital mobility, flexibility, and security are to your operations. General contractors, commercial real estate developers, owner/operators, and subcontractors are on the road every day. Keeping their projects and businesses on schedule and on budget will be the key to competitive success.

Cloud construction and accounting software is a powerfully efficient tool for construction firms. Implementing Acumatica’s cloud-based construction and accounting software will position your construction company for a complete digital transformation.

Here’s a brief overview of the transformational benefits your organization can experience with a cloud-based ERP specially adapted for the construction industry:

  • You’ll connect every aspect of your construction business

If you currently have an accounting system supplemented by multiple non-integrated apps patched together to accommodate the specific processes fundamental to your business, you are missing out on several benefits. A cloud-based, integrated solution will allow your teams to collaborate on projects. An integrated system will help you manage sales and opportunities, track costs, order materials, monitor daily tasks, capture time, schedule on-site visits, and so much more from one solution accessible to all.

  • You’ll manage cash flow more efficiently

If you are trying to manage your cash flow without a solution designed for construction companies, you already know some of the headaches. You need to balance your expenses with your budget, but the data required to do that may reside in various systems. With cloud-based software, you can pull up combined bank balances, billings, and invoices for a complete picture of each account and the health of your whole business. Having such a comprehensive view will allow you to make contractual commitments, meet payroll, and manage your business much more efficiently and successfully.

  • You’ll have tighter control over your projects

Cloud construction software from Acumatica allows you to simplify and tailor your business processes. Real-time dashboards with drill-down capabilities will ensure that nothing falls through the cracks. That will increase productivity, reduce risks, and promote your clients’ satisfaction.

  • You’ll be able to work anytime/anywhere

This is important. Contractors are often on the go. Without cloud-based technology, you may be struggling with inefficient, paper-based processes. If the information you need is located only at your office, you’ve got a problem. Mobile access to your information anytime/anywhere will transform the way you manage projects. Your team will be aware of issues while they can still be solved. You’ll avoid delays when you increase your connectivity.

  • You’ll streamline workflows and integrate your teams

Ordering materials for the job site is easily done within one app and without the paper piles. Cloud-based technology will keep everyone up to date and on the same page. No more backlogs or silos while you wait for memos to be passed around. Business intelligence tools help you analyze what you’ll need for current and future projects. Acumatica Construction Edition will be the linchpin for your field and office management functions, including Sales, Materials, Inventory, Project, Payroll, Financials, and Service. Everyone will have access to real-time, synchronized information. Decisions made by those in the office or in the field that affect profitability and growth will be based on a single source of truth.
