A powerful ERP system creates efficiency & transparency.

The construction industry is notorious for finding it difficult to implement digitalisation and automation measures. According to the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE), the civil engineering and building construction sector is one of the least digitised sectors in the world. This is partly due to the large number of players involved, from contractors to designers. But it is also due to the decentralised and fragmented processes of the construction industry.

Digitisation in the construction industry may be difficult, but it is of course not impossible and things are happening here too. Building Information Modelling, for example, is a good start. And a good ERP system also ensures greater efficiency and plannability.

Challenges in the construction industry

Many construction companies have one or even more IT solutions in use for the commercial area and one or more software solutions in use for construction as well. These software systems, which are not networked with each other, increase complexity and make it difficult to work transparently and efficiently.

An ERP system specifically for the construction industry has the ability to support and standardise common processes in the construction industry. It enables the holistic management of your construction projects and your supply chain from one central location.

Special features in the construction industry that an ERP system can support:

  • Deposits, 
  • Project management, 
  • Tenders 
  • VOB tenders and standard texts 
  • Public clients 
  • Equipment management
  • Location and time-independent access to construction files

Understanding the processes of the construction industry in detail

Understanding the processes of the construction industry in detailERP systems must be able to map these specific requirements of the construction industry. For this, it is important to understand the processes in the construction industry precisely. Only then can an ERP consultant support you effectively and find a powerful ERP system for you.

Dreher Consulting has experience with:

  • Companies in civil engineering, 
  • Companies in building construction, 
  • Companies with their own raw material extraction,
  • With project developers

In doing so, we solve questions regarding the specification of the process landscape so that these can be mapped in specifications. We have successfully completed several projects in which ERP software was required for the requirements of the construction industry.  The requirements for processes in the BIM environment are also special features that we know and take into account.
