Before diving into the benefits, let’s try to understand who really is an Equipment manager and what exactly is his/her role in a construction company.

Construction Equipment/Machinery/Plant managers are those designated authorities who are responsible for; managing plant, machinery and heavy equipment usage authenticating the logs, implementing cost centres for internal hires, conducting preventive and corrective maintenance works, overseeing warehouse activities and operations, stores operations, performing stock audits to ensure smooth supply chain operations to close the gap between demand and supply of materials and equipment at the site level, and many others.

When a construction firm decides to take its entire operations, including the operations of managing the equipment and materials, the first step would be implementing the construction management software that has well-defined modules to target and address the pain-points in almost all the segment of construction. The summation of the advantages for the equipment & machinery managers of using Tactive construction ERP software includes the following;

  • The managers can schedule the generation of Lease / Purchase requests from the site for Equipment and Inventory
  • The ERP with its BI (business intelligence) creates RFQs and manage vendor rating and relationships that can be analysed to arrive at the most promising vendor. 
  • The software assists in identifying idle stock and equipment and helps in the transfer of those underutilised stock to those sites where their demand is relatively higher
  • Detailed analysis of high-value items can be done with the BI and the gathered analytics can be transmitted in real-time to the finance module for effective cost control
  • The managers can now use the ERP for making log entries instead of excel which has too many setbacks for maintaining data in huge quantities and track requests for equipment requirement schedules at sites. 
  • Monitor project-wise equipment and machinery utilisation and the analytics can be saved and later retrieved from the database to predict the project nature wise demand for different equipment and the costs associated with their utilization to make informed decisions. 
  • Can do hire vs buy analysis and release idle equipment hire back to vendors
