3 reasons for choosing 4PS Construct
- The price was attractive and within our budget
- SQL based product, so it fitted into our current and planned infrastructure
- Functionality and ease of use ticked all the boxes
"Compared with earlier systems, 4PS is distinguished by being fully adapted for our operations. We have also put a lot of focus on configuring the key areas to suit us even better. We began with service and will continue by fine tuning project management."
“In 2011, we made the transition to 4PS Construct and made our first steps in the field of data and digitization. We realized the “paper process” could be organized in a smarter and more efficient way, both for our customers and our own internal process. The starting point is that the activities are carried out correctly from the start and that standardization and transparency in the process are strived for. Also across chain partners, in order to prevent waste as much as possible."
“At BAM, we agreed that we would process existing projects just like we had done in the past. New projects now run via 4PS Construct. This was a conscious decision because of the international environment we are operating in. We are taking it step by step. In consultation with 4PS, a number of adjustments were made in the standard software. A prerequisite for our business and an enhancement of their standard product for 4PS.”
"It’s interesting that the reliable day to day running of the system with no down time has raised staff morale. Due to this, the workforce want to engage with the system more and more and are pushing the business to take more advantage of Dynamics NAV/4PS. They’ve had their eyes opened to the limitations of the old system so improvements and refinements are continually being made driven, quite often, by the users."
