TORONTO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 10, 2009 — Performance Contracting Group (PCG), one of the largest specialty contractors in the United States, has chosen to integrate their financial and project management functions with CMiC software. By replacing its current systems with CMiC Enterprise, CMiC Project Management and CMiC Integration, PCG will achieve a significant return on investment while optimizing business processes.
“Our overall evaluation process led us to pick CMiC as our partner,” said Mick Matthews, senior vice president of Performance Contracting Group. “Our company made the decision to move to an integrated system that a 3rd party software vendor would support and enhance. CMiC met all of our requirements and we are looking forward to developing a partnership that both companies can leverage.”
Based in Lenexa, Kansas, PCG’s largest subsidiary, Performance Contracting Inc, is the #1 Wall and Ceiling Contractor in the U.S and the company, as a whole, has about 3,000 ongoing projects at a time. For the last 20 years, PCG has been using a combination of homegrown, internally developed software packages and heavily customized 3rd party accounting software to meet their business needs. Though the systems served the company well, the lack of integration and multiple vendor databases became an issue.
“With CMiC software, all mission critical information is stored on one central database,” said Bassem Hamdy, vice president of solutions, CMiC. “This approach reduces multiple data entry and increases data accessibility and integrity. By integrating all functions on a single database, companies can reduce operating costs and lower software support payments by eliminating multiple software vendors. Given the current economic situation, companies in the architectural, engineering and construction industry need to utilize their software systems to reduce costs intelligently. CMiC looks forward to working with PCG to align CMiC software solutions with PCG’s business objectives and lower costs, improve productivity and enhance efficiency.”
Based in Lenexa, Kansas, PCG is ranked 8th among the top 600 U.S. specialty contractors, and was named the number one wall and ceiling company in ENR magazine. PCG’s family of companies provides a wide range of quality services and products to the non-residential, commercial and industrial markets.
