We look forward to having the capability to capture the right information and use this to drive continuous improvement within the organization.

Viewpoint Construction Software®, a leading provider of innovative software solutions and services to the construction industry, is pleased to announce that Queensland-based Shadforths Civil Contractors has selected Vista™ by Viewpoint as their new ERP solution. Shadforths Civil has over 40 years' experience working on some of the largest civil contracting projects in Queensland.

Shadforths Civil was looking for a long-term technology partner who could meet their growing technology needs now and into the future. Their existing system was end-of-life, and they had outgrown the capabilities of their current accounting software. Additionally, their business had matured, so new systems and functionality were required to meet the needs of new and growing areas of business, most importantly in project management.

“We conducted a rigorous and formal assessment of the market to select a technology partner that would grow with us,” stated Michael Jantke, Business Systems Manager with Shadforths Civil. “In the end, Viewpoint emerged as the provider who would be best able to adapt to our business requirements. Viewpoint has all the features you would expect from a construction financial system, but most importantly for us, it also has a full featured and robust equipment management module, which is a requirement to manage our large in-house fleet.” Jantke added, “We look forward to having the capability to capture the right information and use this information to drive continuous improvement within the organization. Support was also top of mind, and existing customers we interviewed spoke very highly of the responsiveness of the support team.”
