InEight, a global leader in construction project management software, has today announced a strategic integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365, delivering Construction 365 – a unified enterprise platform incorporating more than 30 different integrations to help businesses improve and standardise insights and information flow between office and field for capital construction projects.
The integration unifies the data experience (including CRM, Estimating, Project Controls, BIM, Risk Management, Document Management, Scheduling, Accounting and Procurement, through desktop and mobile capabilities) to deliver businesses with improved transparency and alignment, providing a single source of truth to enhance ease of user access, collaboration and security across Microsoft and InEight applications. Using the end-to-end, customisable platform, customers can now connect data and processes seamlessly and intuitively across systems to reduce errors, omissions and redundancies while improving the outcomes of complex long-term projects.
Speaking on the announcement of Construction 365, Pål Christian Hustoft, CFO, at Veidekke Entreprenør AS, a joint customer of Microsoft and InEight and one of Scandinavia’s largest construction companies said, “Veidekke is the largest construction company in Norway due to organic growth and a history of mergers and acquisitions, and we take pride in being a company that develops a best practice for our business, and we want a unified approach to the digital transformation.
“We believe InEight’s Construction 365 solution will meet our business needs as a fully integrated digital transformation platform, providing us the transparency and control throughout our business. We expect the ongoing implementation will confirm our beliefs, making it possible for us with a greater ability to create great projects for our clients with our desired profitability and on schedule.” added Hustoft.
Petter Merok, industry executive, architecture, engineering and construction, Microsoft Norway, commented, “Complex construction projects involve huge amounts of variables and many different cross-practice and company personnel. This powerful Microsoft Dynamics 365 integration with InEight empowers teams with unified, real-time data across all processes to make smarter decisions that drive business progress. We are proud to be playing a role in supporting productivity and performance improvements in the construction industry, at a time when it has perhaps never been more important.”
Explaining InEight’s integration strategy, Mike Paul, managing director for EMEA at InEight, said: “While the physical world is still seeing borders and restrictions on freedom of movement, the trend in the data world is the opposite. Connectivity is key. Through this integration with Microsoft Dynamics, InEight is creating interconnected workplaces to enhance collaboration and project outcomes in capital construction. It’s an important and timely step towards our goal of digitalising construction project management.”
