Viewpoint Construction Software® has been selected by Real Goods Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: RSOL), a leading provider of turnkey solar energy solutions, to implement cloud-hosted, enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Viewpoint V6 Software®.

As the construction industry evolves and readily moves to technology solutions to achieve more efficient and better business processes, many contractors are finding that cloud-hosted solutions offer the option to take advantage of the benefits while avoiding much of the maintenance and building the infrastructure these robust technology solutions require.

Real Goods Solar recognized that Viewpoint’s V6 Software solution is both scalable and cost effective. From a logistical standpoint a cloud-based solution offers Real Goods Solar the advantage of eliminating it’s need for a data center or co-locating the company’s servers at a secondary service.

“I think one of the most difficult tasks an IT manager faces is to quantify the cost associated with an application,” said Real Goods Solar IT Director, Joe Thielen. “If you go into the cloud, questions about cost disappear. You know exactly how much it costs each month - no surprises and no estimating. In addition, a cloud-based ERP solution provides better scalability as Real Goods Solar prepares for strong growth in 2013.”
