Construction Industry Has Unique IT Challenges

Traditional ways of storing data and tracking projects may be lacking in


Are you in the construction business? Think for a moment about the challenges you face when tracking a collection of projects. Each operating with its own profit and loss centers. Each on its own timeline.

Monitoring all that data, forecasting results, and meeting deadlines is complicated. If your project information is stored in Excel spreadsheets or within multiple complex IT (information technology) systems – Then it can be next to impossible to get the big picture on company-wide success, or risk…

If you’re a corporate controller stuck in the middle of a project storm, then calculating, recording, and reporting results could be a major pain point.

Would you be interested in an enterprise-wide database solution that put every project detail in one place and allowed for customized dashboards where you could easily view and track progress across multiple-sites with a click of the mouse?

RutterKey Solutions, LLC is a consulting company that helps businesses like yours track operations, improve data efficiency, and provide visual analysis for key performance indicators (KPI).

We are experts in planning and implementing IFS Applications™ – a Best in Class* ERP system that brings a company’s entire data profile under a single software solution. IFS Apps are easy to navigate, and our professional engineering team can help create training material that makes every user feel comfortable interacting with the software environment.

Take the Guesswork out of the Equation

What kind of risk are you facing if you have project information stored in a “jury-rigged” combination of Excel spreadsheets and industry vendor software strung across a variety of servers and company laptops?

For starters, you risk having no way to legitimately reconcile the estimates of a project forecast against an authoritative base source. How do you know if you’re on time and on budget?

Next, when large scale projects span years to complete, you risk having cost and time overruns spin out of control.

Finally, with a loose security structure and access not tied to employee role, you risk not having the checks and balances in place to detect and prevent manipulated data from being entered in the system.
