Construction Software and Services
Each product has over 30 years of development and they are extremely rich in functionality. And they are both backed by a range of support and training services, delivered by people with an excellent understanding of the needs of these sectors.
Construction, building and mining are tough sectors, generally involving delivery of highly complex projects, usually at high risk. ‘Generic’ software solutions can be used but doing so places unnecessary pressure on management and professionals. Candy and BuildSmart are tailored to meet these sectors’ unique needs, which include:
- change-management requirements that can be extremely challenging
- tight margins + high risk = need for excellent planning + cost control
- very high impact of delays in provision of cost information
- need for data consistency between estimating, planning, sites and HQ
- high complexity in reconciling site costs and accounting records
- reporting with wide variety of data and format requirements
- diversity of resource types (labour, plant, material, subbies, fuel, inventory, etc)
- generally, high complexity in interfacing multiple software applications
- Two software products — both offering an extensive range of standard modules; BuildSmart also offers several optional modules.
- Used individually — each product delivers outstanding functionality.
- Used together — they tightly integrate with one another, delivering unrivalled visibility of project status and outlook.
- Other integrations — Candy can also be connected with other financial management systems.
- Candy licensing — to accommodate variations in level of project activity, Candy is offered on a flexible month-by-month rental basis.
- BuildSmart licensing — offered on a licence plus annual maintenance basis.
