PENTA construction ERP software chosen to improve ATEC Steel's field labor productivity management

Brookfield, WI - 
Penta Technologies, a leading developer of enterprise software for the construction industry, announced that ATEC Steel has selected PENTA software to run their field construction operations.

Construction ERP Software for Steel Contractor

ATEC Steel is an industry leader in the design, fabrication and construction of vessels, shop-built tanks, specialty / custom fabrication and field-erected storage tanks. They will use PENTA to manage business processes including:

  • Construction Job Cost Accounting
  • Forecasting
  • Project Management
  • Work Order Management
  • Automated Billing
  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receivable

“Previously, we used a manufacturing software system to run both the manufacturing side and the field installations sides of our business,” said Nick Morfeld, Controller at ATEC Steel. “It really didn’t provide the job cost controls needed to increase profit margins and make smart decisions to help grow our construction operations.”

The features and functions of the software were important; industry experience was even more crucial.

“Experience with industrial contractors was critical to us. We have specific ways we recognize revenue, and many software vendors don’t understand how important that is,” said Morfeld.  “We spoke with people who had worked at Matrix Services who’d had good experiences with PENTA. Right from the start, we could tell the people at Penta Technologies understood our business and could help us accomplish our goals.”
