On premise or in the cloud, single platform, affordable end-to-end solution simplifies business operations and project management
Waltham, Mass. – February 24, 2016 – B4 Consulting, helping construction companies grow with innovative software, services and support, today announced its new solution set for small- to mid-sized general contractor, self-perform, and specialty trade firms. Integrating best-in-class technology for construction management, the offering supports the full construction lifecycle. It provides an end-to-end solution enabling companies to efficiently manage critical business operations such as Bid-to-Contract, Project Delivery, and Asset and Facility Management. Solution functionality can also be deployed for specific business requirements such as Enterprise Content Management and integrated with a customer’s existing applications. Priced for the mid-market and easy-to-use, the suite can be deployed on premise or in the cloud by firms with as few as two to five employees or hundreds of employees. This announcement comes on the heels of the B4 Consulting Mobility for Construction app released earlier this year.
“Construction companies – large and small – work on very tight profit margins. And, industry data indicate that the construction industry does not look to technology to help improve those margins. Yet technology will be the lynchpin for construction industry growth in the 21st century,” said Klaus Schottenhamel, president and CEO of B4 Consulting. “Our new solution set enables mid-market construction companies to leverage the innovative and margin-enhancing technologies used by some of the world’s largest and most successful construction companies. We work with those companies and understand how technology can be applied for construction industry growth. We’ve applied this industry IP to our mid-market solutions that meet the business needs of construction companies —regardless of size.”
