3 reasons for choosing 4PS Construct
- It did have bearing for us that it was a Microsoft product and it could be easily interfaced to other products.
- All the users said it looked easier to use when we showed it to them.
- It seemed to cover all our functional needs.
"Compared with earlier systems, 4PS is distinguished by being fully adapted for our operations. We have also put a lot of focus on configuring the key areas to suit us even better. We began with service and will continue by fine tuning project management."
"We know we’ve got more control over the business and the day to day running. Reporting is much improved by using Jet and the standard CVR Report. Processing sub-contractor payments is so much easier as are so many daily tasks so we are definitely more efficient."
“In 2011, we made the transition to 4PS Construct and made our first steps in the field of data and digitization. We realized the “paper process” could be organized in a smarter and more efficient way, both for our customers and our own internal process. The starting point is that the activities are carried out correctly from the start and that standardization and transparency in the process are strived for. Also across chain partners, in order to prevent waste as much as possible."
“At BAM, we agreed that we would process existing projects just like we had done in the past. New projects now run via 4PS Construct. This was a conscious decision because of the international environment we are operating in. We are taking it step by step. In consultation with 4PS, a number of adjustments were made in the standard software. A prerequisite for our business and an enhancement of their standard product for 4PS.”
