Leveraging innovative technology to drive growth in construction with IFS Cloud

Why IFS Cloud?

The construction industry is one of the largest sectors in the world, and is a major contributor to the world economy. However, it is also chaotic, disconnected and constantly facing new disruptions. If you're running a legacy or end of life system, you're at risk of stalling your transformation efforts, losing your competitive edge and missing out on revenue—and probably facing rising costs too.

Build the foundations for success in a disrupted market

Construction and engineering firms often operate on tight margins. Now they are facing even greater pressures due to labor shortages, productivity levels and a rapidly globalizing industry that in many markets has brought new entrants. Despite these challenges, developments in new technology and construction methods have energized the industry. Many engineering and construction companies are quickly realizing that relocating activities formerly done onsite to a shop environment, similar to a manufacturing industry model, can contribute to significant gains in productivity and margins.

Integrated project and lifecycle management

Construction goes offsite and modular

In order to succeed, contractors may need to become more agile and embrace this major change, transitioning to an offsite manufacturing delivery model. Whether this is offsite or modular manufacturing, it relies on factory-made modules and components that are shipped and assembled on site. Offsite and modular manufacturing delivery methods allows project delivery to be more predictable, and faster — at a lower cost and higher quality.

To take full advantage of this new opportunity to increase revenues and margins, consider adapting quickly to the accelerating construction integrated manufacturing model. Ultimately, success in the new digital era for construction will come by harnessing the power of technologies to integrate processes across the business and develop the fast-changing, disruptive services that clients and owners demand.

Leveraging years of deep industry experience in the construction and manufacturing industries, together, Baker Tilly and IFS help construction businesses looking to begin modular construction address the difficulties that come with legacy software, silos of data, constraints on capital, poor processes and fragmented resources. Our team delivers unique industry-specific functionality, expertise and technology insight that empowers construction businesses in today’s unstable economy.
