Increase supply chain visibility
The Get it Right Initiative (GIRI) has measured that 21% of the cost of a construction project is due to avoidable error, increasing visibility across your supply chain can help reduce this.
In a sector where margins are so tight, any inroads can improve performance dramatically. Technology can help projects substantially reduce avoidable errors by improving supply chain communication and collaboration. This area needs the same focus and culture change that has seen safety records improve.
Improve decision making
Bridging the gap between field and office is key to unlocking improved productivity. Without up-to-date information available anytime and anywhere, the potential for errors and costly rework is high. Real-time project information lets you make faster and more informed decisions. It’s a significant opportunity for an industry where traditionally, information collection and analysis can take days or even months.
“Initial results have been very positive and open up great possibilities: our salespeople have adopted Microsoft Dynamics 365 and now have access to real-time data, whether from their computer, smartphone or tablet, whenever they are on the move”
