The construction industry has never been more competitive, which is forcing contractors to evaluate how to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
CTS Guides, a leading publisher of construction software reviews, ratings and evaluation tools, has added a new report to its Web site designed to help construction companies understand how integrated software delivers a competitive advantage. The free report, titled "The Key to Contractor Profit in the 21st Century: Integrating Project Management and Accounting in Construction Software to Improve Productivity and Profitability," explains how technology bridges the communication gap between accounting staff and the project management team to improve a company's bottom line.
Written by construction software consultant Bill Klein, JD/MBA, the CTS report sites specific construction accounting software solutions and project management systems to illustrate various points. The author provides a list of traditionally strong construction accounting software packages, discusses the leading project management systems and explains why the ultimate solution integrates these two construction management worlds. In addition, he describes emerging technologies that can improve important operational aspects like communication and document control.
"The construction industry has never been more competitive, which is forcing contractors to evaluate how to increase efficiency and reduce costs," said CTS President Sheldon Needle. "As our report demonstrates, integrated technology can help companies increase their competitiveness by achieving both of these goals."
Accounting and project teams look at information from different points of view. But construction companies looking to increase profit and gain market share in a demanding environment must recognize the importance of fully integrating project management and accounting functions. For contractors who are exploring the value of integrated software for construction, CTS' report is a useful resource.
