Executive leaders & Business owners

Business owners and leaders of Construction organisations have a heavy burden to carry. With a push to  rise above industry disruption and increase competition senior leaders within the construction space are rapidly being pushed to increase revenue, become more data driven, minimise cyber security risk and to digitise the business as a top priority. Having worked closely to implement Dynamics 365 within the Construction industry, we’ve helped business leaders like you

With Power BI, Predictive Analytics and Dashboards you can easily measure how efficient any project, or your entire operation is with a simple, 360-degree view of your business - giving you the ability to put your organisation’s energy, and focus, into what really matters

Improve the customer experience

Every step of the customer journey is important, from the first touch point to the last. You want your customers to view your organisation as not only capable builders, but as the clear choice for making the home build process easy and manageable. With Microsoft Dynamics 365, you have one system that can help you better understand what customers want, create communications and show room experiences that leave a lasting impression, and build a package to put them in their dream home.

Providing a bird’s eye view of your operations

From delays in stock, efficiency issues, or management of tools and machinery, Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Construction can help you monitor each project and find areas of the process you can improve. Using advanced AI, your forecasting can predict show room turnouts based on billboard advertising campaigns, and new land release advertisements, and proactively manage any opportunities that come out of them.

Optimising your operations and keep your people happy

Okay, the contracts are signed – what now?! You now need to think of time capture, general staff management, placing orders and dealing with quotes (to name just a few). Microsoft Dynamics 365 provides a user-friendly environment that your team will quickly get to grips with - and make them wonder how they lived without! Missing parts can be catalogued and ordered while on-site, project managers doing warranty checks can post pictures of defects, and with a simple HR process, you can streamline the most common staffing tasks.

Technical Managers & Users

The role of the CIO, IT Manager, or technology leader in construction organisations is often heavily focussed on keeping BAU systems and hardware working, while balancing new projects and initiatives such as rolling out new ERPs or security upgrades.

Additional Security in an agile environment

If you don’t have a system in place that is flexible and can adapt to change in the construction industry you can either fall behind the competition or be penalised for not adhering to strict regulations. The information you store in your systems is often commercially sensitive (pricing, margins, key suppliers) so it is vital that any information you share is controlled - Controlling who has access to what across multiple devices, procedures in place for when staff move on and real-time control over your Microsoft licensing when you need to ramp up in a hurry or scale back during off-peak times.

Data on the go

Dynamics 365 allows you to set up real-time monitoring and predictive analytics that help the business manage quality, quantity and supplies from the office or on-site. Empower key staff to know when they’re going to run out of essential supplies in advance, and create role-specific dashboards, alerts, task lists and reports for improved productivity and decision making. This includes both offline and online elements for when internet is out of reach on-site so your staff can still get the job done. With regular updates to Dynamics 365 via the cloud and Microsoft Azure Backup Security, you can be relieved of the headache of storing data and ensuring high-end protection as well as remaining compliant to ongoing industry changes.
