Brookfield, Wisconsin – August 29, 2016
General contractor, Vogel Bros. Building Co., was awarded the Constructech Vision - Gold Award at a ceremony in Schaumburg, Illinois. Penta Technologies (construction management software) was jointly recognized as Technology Enabler.
Vogel Bros. received the award due to their innovative use of PENTA (an industry leading construction management software) to seamlessly bring together project management, accounting, and other critical operating functions to increase efficiency and profitability across multiple locations and 120 employees. For example, before on-boarding PENTA, Vogel’s admin staff members were assigned to duplicate data entry. Vogel has already experienced a 20 percent reduction in admin staff time related to data entry. This capacity has been redirected to support other vital priorities within the organization.
At a higher level, PENTA provides Vogel managers with real-time summarized views of projects and the ability to drill down into granular details. Vogel managers can now access reliable data and perform real-time decision-making with greater confidence. This gives Vogel the ability to quickly identify potential constraints and proactively create solutions for its customers.
“Using PENTA, I can easily analyze performance for the whole company, Wisconsin operations, Florida operations, or countless other ways, to get a clear vision of our status in real-time” said Eric Ballweg, Treasurer & Chief Financial Officer at Vogel Bros.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the Vogel Bros. team and their dedication to bringing these efficiencies to life. This is a testament to the partnership we have and we look forward to the next challenge we can tackle together”, said Andy Lambert, Director of Account management at Penta Technologies.
