The biggest problems in construction right now are too narrow profit margins, the inefficient implementation of business processes, a lack of both skilled and unskilled workers and insufficient digitalisation. Yet now that the economy is doing so well, and there are plenty of contracts, it would be nice if more construction companies could benefit properly from this economic upturn.
Construction projects are complex. Everyone has to be on the same page. In practice, inadequate communication using a patchwork of independent systems, error-prone spreadsheets and paper documents leads to sky-high failure costs, unnecessary waste and systematic inefficiency for all companies involved. Digitalisation will allow you to complete construction projects more quickly at higher margins and with satisfied repeat customers.
If you are looking for a partner who knows both the construction industry and small and medium-sized businesses inside out, meet Exact. Exact has more than 30 years' experience in digitalising small and medium-sized construction companies.
Exact for Construction allows you to digitalise and integrate both your office and your construction site and make that data work for your construction company.
The result? Higher margins thanks to a lower risk of errors. And thanks to your clear communication, you will be working with satisfied customers, subcontractors, suppliers and other partners – now and in the future.
Construction projects tend to be under a lot of time pressure and project communication and exchange of information are often fragmented. The client and the various contractors and subcontractors and finishing companies may or may not already be working digitally. They may be using different packages and means of communication resulting in a web of calls, messages and emails. This soon causes miscommunication and ultimately results in high failure costs.
Now that the economic situation is improving, personnel, material and subcontracting costs are on the rise. And the next dip may be just around the corner. Paper-based administration, a handful of separate packages and a build-up of error-prone spreadsheets make it difficult to schedule employees as effectively as possible.
It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life now and to keep postponing a full digitalisation process. If the processes within your construction company are insufficiently integrated, your margin will continue to systematically evaporate. And by the time the economy takes its next hit, it will be too late. You will miss out on the capital and the integrated competition will be snapping up the contracts from under your nose.
