This starts with the development of a planning team that thorough- ly understands organizational needs and generates company- wide excitement, while dealing with any concerns or disrup- tions along the way. Simply put, today’s high-end implementations are no longer the painful, time-consuming and disruptive adventures that many construction and develop- ment companies were subjected to years ago. Most of today’s applications readily merge with legacy systems to provide wide- spread systemic efficiencies and the instantaneous access to accurate, up-to-date client, project and management infor- mation from a single, digitized location. The key is in the planning and ability to strategically and logi- cally expand and comport to the growing needs of organizations operating in an ever-changing marketplace. For construction contractors and developers, this often entails working side by side with trusted partners to create solutions that fix glaring weaknesses first and then sys- tematically roll out a succession of enhancements that reduce cost and waste, build employee confidence, and prepare for the next growth stage.
