Project Management with Dynamics CRM in Construction

Construction of an Apartment Block (Condominium)

I had the pleasure last week of learning about a Dynamics CRM solution for construction.  Now what do I mean when I say construction, I am not talking about a one-off build of a new home, I am talking about construction as it relates to building massive projects that are filled with red tape and very specific process that must be followed, with a major focus on compliance.

If there is not a level of rigor around managing the smallest details it can lead to cost overruns and people litigating against each other to get things sorted out.  No construction company want that to happen so here is a solution to help mitigate that risk.

IPM Global Project Management Softwarelogo-ipm-global

This is a fully integrated solution built on Microsoft Dynamics CRM (in this case we would call it an xRM solution), to manage construction projects in the building industry.  So don’t plan on using this for software projects, this is software specific to the building industry.

Industries that use IPM Global Project Management

Commonly this product is implemented in the following industries:

  • Civil / Highway Construction
  • Public Utilities
  • Engineering and HVAC
  • Electrical Contractors
  • Property Developers
  • General Construction

To understand the full benefits of this software you need to book a demo, links can be found on their website ipmglobal.net.

Can you trust this product?

One thing I always look for in an add-on solution to Dynamics CRM is whether the product has been certified to run on Dynamics CRM.  This is called CfMD or Certified for Microsoft Dynamics.  I have been through the process a few times and it adds a level of trust that the product has meet standards set by Microsoft.

Time

This company has provided this solution for some time (over 20 years’ experience have gone into it) to the construction industry and they support clients all over the world.
