ERP for Engineering Industry
Middle East is the region where all the action is. Infrastructure creation is the biggest contributor to the economies. The urge to grow rapidly and provide the best amenities to its citizens is motivating respective governments to create infrastructure for its populace in nearly all the countries here. It is a region that is future oriented.
In this scenario, companies in the infrastructure arena are growing rapidly. It is not easy to manage projects from a remote location nor is it easy to manage multiple locations, sometimes, some of these locations might be in inhospitable geographies. With high competition, shrinking margins and highly demanding institutions it is necessary to have a good Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System that is tuned to Project acquisition and implementation within the given budgets and controlled margins.
Typically, an Engineering ERP Software catering to Project oriented companies’ needs to address some critical issues –
- Interface and two way data flow between ERP and software like MS-Project.
- Creating budgets and MIS keeping track of budgets for project and various activities under it.
- Scheduling of various activities and sub-activities of projects and tracking target dates of deliveries.
- Facility for downloading and uploading BOQs from tenders and response to tenders.
