Engineering firms have a variety of crucial responsibilities. Projects that range from small compressor stands to massive transportation systems require applications and integrations that stray outside typical business requirements. In addition to the customer engagement and financial tools required by most companies, engineering firms require an additional set of tools to ensure projects run smoothly. Time and expense reporting, work-breakdown structures, document handling and transmission, employee scheduling and integration with new or existing project management applications can vastly increase productivity and accuracy. Ascent understands these requirements and offers a full suite of solutions and expertise for project-based environments.
Ascent Understands Engineering
Ascent understands you need a variety of software solutions to handle a project. Our system integration and cloud solutions allow easy access to the data needed across multiple parties.
Our field-management solutions keep on-site contractors, managers and inspectors in constant communication in all kinds of environments. Real-time data collection reduces double-entry and delays while information is being uploaded.
We initially contracted with two larger consulting firms to replace our Oracle system with the Microsoft Dynamics ERP system. However, we found that we were not receiving the quality service we were expecting simply because the consultants assigned to the project were also assigned to numerous other clients.
As a result, many of the tasks on the project plan were falling through the cracks and behind schedule. Ascent was on the project quickly, implemented a solution in a timely manner and completed the work exceeding expectations.
