The accelerating pace of information sharing requires technologies such as browser-based applications, cloud technologies, mobile applications, and possibly even a single database-driven platform. For construction companies, these are big considerations today.

As another example of this adoption,  Intl. Cooling Tower, www.ictower.com, Edmonton, Alta., has completed the implementation of Computer Guidance’s, www.computerguidance.com, Scottsdale, Ariz., eCMS v.4.0 Construction ERP (enterprise-resource planning) software, bringing additional productivity and efficiency tools to its financial administration and jobsite operations.

Intl. Cooling Tower offers technologically advanced products and services that are specifically designed for a diverse range of applications, including power generation, petrochemical, central utilities, pulp and paper, mining, refineries, and others. This company uses eCMS v.4.0 Construction ERP to manage its accounting, financial reporting, payroll, human resources, equipment, job cost, and project management business processes. And the onsite ERP deployment also includes Computer Guidance’s Enterprise Content Management and Cognos Business Intelligence & Analytics solutions.

With the implementation of eCMS v.4.0 construction platform from Computer Guidance, Intl. Cooling Tower gains many benefits, including the ability to merge data and processes for U.S. and Canadian operations, bringing immediate productivity gains and added efficiencies to the business.

Building on standardized processes and unified data, Intl. Cooling Tower is now introducing reports and dashboards with Cognos Business Intelligence & Analytics, as well as implementing advanced imaging, workflows, document management, and archiving for users.

Software developers for construction enterprise resource planning solutions, such as Computer Guidance, continue to provide these kinds of opportunities, enabling business intelligence and analytics applications and advanced productivity tools.
