Plant management in construction
4PS Construct is the leading plant and equipment management software in the industry. It gives you total visibility over your plant and equipment – availability, costs, locations, bookings, billings, status and related resources. Gain full control of your plant and equipment with 4PS Construct.
Why is Plant and Equipment management software necessary?
Whether owned or hired in – knowing even simple things like where your plant is and how much it is costing is much trickier than you might think. Costs can be easily ramped up if plant is under-utilised or simply not returned, and keeping track of damage, service requirements, plant procurement, current asset values and inspections can be very inefficient. In addition you may hire plant out directly – in which case keeping control of invoicing is also vital.
With 4PS you have complete visibility and control over your plant and equipment management. You may have hundreds of pieces of plant, with some requiring dedicated personnel to operate, and some workers may be subcontractors. We give you the tools to track every aspect of plant – from finance to physical use, from purchase costs to project costs.
Plant management is an integral part of 4PS Construct, designed specifically to manage your plant and tools. Buy an asset, register it as plant, capture purchase costs, record depreciation and set up costs, record key data, safety information, barcodes and locations. Then use it in project, process plant requests, allocate it, invoice hire and post costs.
“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.”
"It’s interesting that the reliable day to day running of the system with no down time has raised staff morale. Due to this, the workforce want to engage with the system more and more and are pushing the business to take more advantage of Dynamics NAV/4PS. They’ve had their eyes opened to the limitations of the old system so improvements and refinements are continually being made driven, quite often, by the users."
