Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) January 06, 2015
Viewpoint Construction Software®, a leading provider of innovative software solutions to the construction industry, is pleased to announce that Mississippi-based Gulf Coast Shipyard Group, Inc. has selected Viewpoint as its new technology partner, purchasing Vista™ by Viewpoint, Viewpoint For Mobile and Viewpoint for Content Management, all hosted in Viewpoint’s Cloud. Gulf Coast Shipyard Group, Inc. is a leader in the design and construction of offshore commercial vessels, offshore and inland barges, oil spill response and patrol vessels, as well as oil field support vessels. Gulf Coast has yards located in New Orleans, L.A. and Gulfport, M.S.
Gulf Coast’s previous ERP environment was anchored by an antiquated system that left them extremely vulnerable to information loss and offered very limited functionality, especially in the area of project and cost visibility. Gulf Coast was looking for an ERP solution that could support the growth of its current product focus as well as its focus on new products, as they expand into the commercial shipbuilding market.
“We evaluated nine different software providers, helping to ensure we found the right fit for our needs. Viewpoint demonstrated a user-friendly interface, superior functionality and the kind of forward-thinking philosophy that I believe will consistently increase their market share. I feel we are partnering with a company that will lead the construction software industry for years to come,” stated Mitchell Skrmetta, Controller at Gulf Coast. “The project management and collaboration functionality in Vista offers the potential for significant savings from both a cost and resource standpoint. It will also allow us to better our processes, adding real value to our bottom line.”
