“We needed greater accessibility to business-critical data across all of our business units and wanted a single integrated system to deliver it.” Marty Schaper, CAO at Flintco
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 20, 2015
Computer Guidance Corporation, the leading developer of ERP software solutions for the construction industry, announced that Flintco, LLC has implemented Computer Guidance’s Construction ERP solution to replace their current legacy cost accounting system. Computer Guidance’s eCMS construction enterprise resource planning solution now serves as the organization’s technology backbone to standardize and consolidate business processes and integrate mission-critical data across all business units.
Since its founding in 1908, Flintco has made a name for itself as one of the premier construction companies in the country. Flintco has a reputation of providing the very best construction solutions and services to a wide array of clients across the United States. It has consistently been named among the Engineering News-Record’s Top 400 leading general building contractors as well as in the Top 50 in a variety of market-specific categories, including correctional, entertainment, sports, educational, hotels, motels and convention, healthcare, general building and green construction. In 2013, Flintco was acquired by Alberici Corporation setting the stage for tremendous growth opportunities for the two organizations.
“After seeing the successes that Alberici has had with the eCMS v.4.0 and the improvements it brought to automating essential off-line processes and critical project metrics to project managers, we decided to migrate Flintco to Computer Guidance’s construction ERP,” said Marty Schaper, CAO at Flintco. “We needed greater accessibility to business-critical data across all of our business units and wanted a single integrated system to deliver it.”
The Flintco ERP implementation was successfully completed in March 2015, doubling the size of the overall eCMS user base and ERP footprint at Alberici. The year-long project included more than 30 project team members working together to coordinate tasks, including extensive data conversion and process re-engineering. The contractor went live on eCMS v.4.0 cost accounting, financial management, payroll, job cost, equipment accounting and maintenance, purchasing, Cognos Business Intelligence and Analytics, Enterprise Content Management applications.
“An organization that manages hundreds of large-scale construction projects at multiple locations, Flintco had a significant need for a robust enterprise-class ERP solution that places business-critical data into the hands of back-office and field employees on demand.” stated Steven Gross, Vice President of Client Solutions, Computer Guidance Corporation. “With our eCMS ERP, Flintco users will now rely on integrated financial and project data to manage their day-to-day business operations allowing them for improved decision-making and greater productivity.”
