Intuit QuickBase is honored to be a finalist for the 2015 CODiE Awards in the Best Construction Management Solution category. The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier award for the software and information industries and have been recognizing product excellence for 30 years. The awards have over 85 categories and are organized by industry focus of Content, Education and Software. (QuickBase is also honored to be nominated in the Best Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) category).
This year’s program features 29 software categories, several of which are new or updated, including this one, to reflect the latest industry trends. Winners will be announced during a special virtual SIIA Software CODiE Awards Ceremony on May 7.
Construction companies of all sizes rely on highly-customizable QuickBase apps to manage nearly every aspect of their business, from managing customer relationships, to generating estimates, managing projects, permits, incident reporting, time sheets, payroll and more.
“Construction companies struggle with choices of software solutions to manage their business,” says D. Brian Cameron, Vice President of Corporate Operations, Cooper Construction Services. “Most software solutions are enormous, expensive and take a level of corporate commitment that typically ends up with under-utilization of the tool. Efforts to change whatever business process and workflow that might exist to fit into these products tends to be a long, arduous process yielding results that were not expected. Subsequently, parts of the business process revert back to spreadsheets and paper. This is more of a problem with small construction firms as they do not have the internal resources to implement these very large software ‘solutions.’”
“Theres an entire cottage industry that does nothing else than manage Davis-Bacon fringe benefit allocations and we’re doing it ourselves natively in QuickBase,” says Cameron. ”We use QuickBase to manage pretty much our entire back office operations from sub ledger accounting to human resources and project support. The platform is wonderful. It’s absolutely wonderful.”
Intuit QuickBase recently shared how construction companies can improve key processes such as project management, asset and estimate management, customer relationship management (CRM) and back-office operations in a free eBook, “From the Clipboard to the Cloud, 5 Keys to Maximizing Your Construction Project Management.”
Intuit QuickBase has won multiple CODiE Awards in the past, including Best Project Management Solution and Best Business Software Product or Service.
