Given the push to control costs, more and more project-based companies are turning to software, like Microsoft Dynamics SL, an SaaS (cloud-deployable) platform designed to manage multiple workflows.
For example, a construction business is usually involved with many ongoing jobs. Consequently, the task of monitoring each aspect of the job can be daunting, particularly if legacy programs are the primary source of data and data sharing. In such instances, when it comes to staging multiple work projects the risks associated with ineffective cost controls escalates.
Another illustration is the remote work site that uses rental equipment and machinery. Once in place, the tasks of maintenance and parts inventory become a top priority. Ultimately, the productivity of rental equipment can factor heavily into each project’s profit potential.
By using Dynamics SL, companies are better equipped to minimize the over-stocking of parts inventory for all of their parts inventory in the warehouse, or in the field. Old programs using Excel spreadsheets, for example, generally lack access to real-time data. Worse, the repetitive entry of data can lead to an inaccurate accounting of material and parts on hand.
Furthermore, the Dynamics SL software transforms the whole of scheduled maintenance. Crews spend less time providing unnecessary maintenance tasks, giving them more time to focus on other pressing tasks.
As a result, companies come to rely on the predictive maintenance capabilities of the software through its Field Service module: life cycles of parts and equipment are monitored, thereby reducing the amount of equipment downtime. What’s more, owners can track warranties along with vendor lists to streamline replacement or service work.
