Milwaukee, WI – Penta Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise software for the engineering and construction industries, announces today that ITAC Engineers and Constructors have selected PENTA as their new engineering and construction management software. Ranked in 2008 as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc. Magazine, ITAC Engineers and Constructors is one of the Mid-Atlantic’s premier providers of quality design and build services to the industrial plant engineering and maintenance markets.
ITAC (Industrial TurnAround Corporation) Engineers and Constructors’ diverse family of industrial services have historically required the internal development and use of custom software programs to manage critical financial and operational functions.
“One of the most important considerations in our system search was that we would no longer need to build and maintain custom systems outside the business financial system,” said Jon Loftis, President of ITAC Engineers and Constructors. “We needed software that could manage engineering, design-build and self-perform construction work, all in one database.”
After a system search and evaluation process which spanned 18 months, ITAC selected PENTA Enterprise Accounting Software for its ability to provide unified management of all the types of work ITAC performed, including fee-based, lump sum and time and material jobs.
“Penta’s staff was quick to understand our language, demonstrate how PENTA Software could meet our needs, and accommodate requirements that are unique to ITAC,” said Loftis. “The PENTA system will envelop everything we do.”
Integrated PENTA management applications will allow ITAC Engineers and Constructors to eliminate duplicate work required in using multiple management systems, and with PENTA Business Analytics, analyze past performance for planning, trend current performance for forecasting and continually measure performance against key indicators.
“We see PENTA as an investment that will deliver improved performance, productivity and accuracy in managing our project cost control, purchasing and time tracking processes.” Loftis added.
Diverse, geographically dispersed and multi-trade contractors are increasingly turning to PENTA Enterprise Accounting Software to simplify management of complex operations and improve business performance.
“To continue to be agile and opportunistic in the marketplace, expanding Engineering and Construction firms need to manage office and field operations with less effort, consistently execute business processes and continually analyze performance,” said Karl Koenig, Penta President. “We’re excited to help ITAC drive continued growth with integrated PENTA Software for financials, project cost management, field data collection and business process management. PENTA Software, and our construction and EPC market experience, will be valuable resources supporting ITAC’s strategic initiatives.”
Engineering and construction firms are seeking systems that:
- Project Managers can use to effectively manage and deliver multiple construction projects to their customers meeting the highest standards of budget, schedule, quality and safety.
- Support the decentralized and mobile nature of engineering and construction by being available anywhere, anytime though use of Web, mobile and other advanced technologies.
- Analyze historical performance for planning, identify exceptions for action, and trend current performance for forecasting, while "drilling down" to critical supporting detail.
- Integrate customer, vendor and employee data throughout engineering and construction operations.
