Article source: AFR ThinkingUrban

Is PSA Software the Key to Solving AEC Firms’ Bottom-line Profitability?

 
August 7th, 2014 by Mike Salem

AEC firms face constant challenges balancing budgets and getting projects completed on-time and on-budget.

Operating these tasks manually is costly, time-consuming and can be prone to errors. A recent survey on FoxBusiness.com [1] revealed small business owners collectively waste four billion hours of company time annually by spending too much time on back-end support functions and administrative tasks. A manual approach keeps AEC owners and management from focusing on what’s important – their core business processes.
