A new generation of construction professionals, according to On Center Software, www.oncenter.com, The Woodlands, Texas, demands a turnkey solution to meet the industry’s rapidly growing needs.

Hence, the provider of technology solutions to construction industry professionals has answered the call with Oasis: the first step toward what it describes as a cloud-based end-to-end solution for the entire construction lifecycle.

In what it says represents a first for the construction industry, On Center describes the Oasis platform as the foundation for seamless integration for applications across the construction project lifecycle, with robust security and data storage capabilities.

“Collaboration, mobility, access to critical data from anywhere—this is what today’s construction professionals need to be successful,” says Robert Bonavito, Chairman of the Board at On Center Software. “The Oasis vision is to deliver this and more. We launched Oasis as the foundation for the entire AEC (architecture engineering construction) industry to build on.”

The platform is architected with standard integration capabilities that are expected to enable companies, over time, to choose “best-of-breed” software applications and customize their individual workflows—without spending the time and money to do one-off integrations.

The first two cloud applications built on the platform are Oasis Takeoff and Oasis FieldCenter. “The early customer feedback has been tremendous,” reports On Center Chief Executive Officer Cecilia Padilla. “Oasis Takeoff enables true team estimating and Oasis FieldCenter allows for realtime collaboration between the office and the field,” she adds.

An established concrete subcontractor serving the Houston market reflects the optimism expressed: “I believe that On Center’s Oasis platform and solutions will help in three critical areas of our business,” says Scott Scully, senior manager at TAS Concrete, www.tasconcrete.com.

“Oasis Takeoff and FieldCenter will lead to improvements in overall estimating efficiency, document control with the field, and end-of-the-month report processes,” Scully predicts.
