Business Intelligence in Construction Facilitates Predictive and Proactive Decisions That Drive Growth

by | Updated July 28, 2017 | Construction, Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Commercial construction companies have a lot of data to manage and must react quickly to changes in customer needs or marketplace conditions. When data is spread across disconnected applications, it’s difficult to manage people and projects with efficiency and make the data-driven decisions to improve productivity or profitability. Deploy a unified business management solution to unlock reliable, real-time data and use your data to solve challenges and make the predictive, proactive decisions that drive growth.

Data plays a pivotal role in many business operations from the bidding process to managing construction projects, to satisfying customer needs. Construction companies still relying on disparate, specialty software are unable to reach data quickly or be confident it’s accurate when making important decisions.

Business Intelligence for Construction in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supports Data-Driven Decisions

Business leaders and project managers are often forced to take a reactive approach as data crosses their desk. They react to project changes, such as delays with contractors or as projects run over budget. Replacing inefficient software with a comprehensive, integrated solution, such as cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics 365, fosters a proactive approach. Centralizing data from across your organization makes it easier for leaders to quickly access real-time, reliable information. Microsoft Dynamics 365 also offers added mobility, arming employees in the field with the same information project managers have in the office. Connecting field and office employees, as well as contractors and customers, nurtures communication and collaboration, which is often needed to keep projects on target.

Business intelligence features within Dynamics 365, such as dashboards and interactive graphical scorecards, offer at-a-glance metrics or drilled-down details supporting predictive and proactive decisions. Project managers can monitor KPIs, such as real-time project costs, for example, to avoid the surprises leading to cost overruns. In addition, project managers avoid scheduling conflicts or project delays using drag-and-drop schedule boards to monitor the labor, equipment, and assets assigned across multiple projects.

Project managers and business leaders can make predictive, proactive decisions using the centralized data, mobility, and business intelligence features within Dynamics 365. Harness the power of your data to strengthen productivity, profitability and drive growth.
