When selecting a piece of construction-management software, industry professionals look for a technology solution that solves multiple pain points within the enterprise. Construction companies may need a solution to automate scheduling or calculate job costs, and quite often, adopting a solution specifically designed for use in the construction industry is a good place to turn.

For RoadSafe Traffic Systems, www.roadsafetraffic.com, Bensalem, Pa., provider of traffic safety and pavement marking services, after considering a number of different software providers, the company decided Viewpoint Construction Software, www.viewpointcs.com, Portland, Ore., offered an attractive feature set.

Viewpoint provides mission-critical ERP (enterprise-resource planning) and ECM (enterprise-content management) software for construction companies. The company says its integrated V6 software is an ERP suite of integrated applications for accounting, human resources, project management, and construction operations.

On why RoadSafe Traffic Systems selected V6 as its ERP software solution, John O’Brien, CFO, RoadSafe, says the company appreciated Viewpoint’s construction-specific management tools, as well as its integrated accounting and data-sharing capabilities.

“Viewpoint’s contemporary .NET and SQL database platform technology was also a key strategic factor as it will allow us to scale and create customized processes in house, avoiding inflated consulting costs that are associated with many software companies,” says O’Brien.

Because business leaders are typically looking forward toward growth and expansion, scalability and a reputation for continual innovation are also important when selecting a new technology solution provider. In the case of Viewpoint, Jay Haladay, CEO, Viewpoint Construction Software, says integrated, flexible, and scalable software can be a catalyst for efficiency as construction companies grow.

Finding a provider that addresses pain points specific for the construction industry and aims to alleviate those challenges is the goal of many companies looking to migrate to an updated software solution for business processes. Instead of turning to generic software, more and more construction professionals are turning to the solutions tailored to meet their unique needs.
