The needs for managing projects and assets have changed as the construction industry has developed and matured. In other words, project management has evolved into a matrix involving numerous complicated responsibilities such as project management, resource management, financial management, and more. Construction projects can have hundreds, if not thousands, of moving parts, as we all know. Employees, contractors, suppliers, materials, and inventories must all be tracked and aligned on a regular basis. In the construction sector, the issue is to keep track of all of these elements while staying on budget and on time.
Even though spreadsheets and custom software solutions have found their way into many organizations’ management processes, the risk of error is always present, especially when working on a series of projects, whether they are related or have unique requirements. As the demand for high-quality, predictable results grows, more construction companies are turning to integrated business management systems such as Dynamics 365.
