Whether it is constantly new bureaucratic regulations in the form of laws or requirements, or the necessity for ever more efficient work processes to make up for regularly increasing non-wage labor costs through increased productivity: adapting quickly to the always-changing situations is one of the greatest challenges faced by the construction industry today. A medium-sized construction company will therefore bank on a modular strategy and planning tool which, by simulation and forecasts, reliably maps the (potential) impact of corporate decisions as well as external influences. In BPS-ONE, the construction company has found a high-performance, practicable tool that transparently maps all business parameters and, due to strict data security, offers the basis for solid decisions.
Highlights are data security and simulations
In 2012, the construction company implemented the BPS-ONE solution with the modules balance-sheet and profit-and-loss account, human resources, investments, contracts and management consolidation. “What I previously had to tediously and error-prone enter in the various Excel lists is now automatically input by BPS-ONE,” declared Schmidt. “And precisely the resulting data security is to me one of the highlights.” Although developing the appropriate structure was a complex task, the Denzhorn customer consultant Andreas Kirschner had competently supported the company in this effort. “The support provided by Denzhorn is fantastic, including post-implementation: The staff there are highly competent and, most of all, can be quickly reached,” says Schmidt. “We are called back immediately after the ticket solution, and the problem is quickly solved.”
Once the customer-specific modifications are implemented, the tool is reportedly quick and easy to operate. “The software is very practicable,” Schmidt sums up. “Best of all is that we can obtain a comparison with just a few clicks. Previous-year’s figures can be compared with current actual data, and the target figure at the full-year date in such a way that the planning can, at any time, be adapted to changing conditions. It is immediately apparent whether we can reach the full-year target and, based on that, we can draw the appropriate conclusions.
And in this way the Business Intelligence solution, oriented toward medium-sized structures, supports the construction company with a systematic analysis of the market, competition and corporate data in a profound decision-making process due to its strict data security and its eloquent market-oriented control functions.
