Milwaukee, WI – June 15th, 2010 - Penta Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of
enterprise software for the construction industry, today announced that W-Industries selected PENTA Software for unified Project Management, Field Service, Mobile Field Reporting and
Construction Accounting. W-Industries has grown rapidly in recent years, becoming a leading provider of Instrumentation and Control systems and services to the Energy industry, with over 450 employees and annual revenues exceeding $100 million.
As W-Industries’ business has expanded, so too have data entry time, errors and omissions when manually entering data into multiple financial and operational systems spanning three legal entities.
“We needed a new enterprise system which would provide us with a single source of entry for financial and operations information in one database,” said Salil Gopinath, Chief Operating Officer for W-Industries. “PENTA Software will help us reduce manual inputs, reduce transaction closing time, improve billing cycles and provide audit trails for our customers.”
W-Industries also sought a proven software vendor with a track record of success in the engineering and construction industry, and a flexible system capable of managing its multi‐company environment, labor and material tickets and mobile construction workforce.
“Penta has been in this business a long time and works with many similar companies, so they understand the nature of our business as well as our unique requirements,” said Gopinath. “All companies operate differently, so the PENTA system architecture, flexible setup options and mobile field reporting solution were particularly attractive to us.”
Diverse, geographically dispersed and multi-trade engineering and construction companies are increasingly turning to PENTA Software to improve business performance and simplify management of complex operations.
“We are proud to have been chosen by W-Industries - a proven leader in providing instrumentation and control systems and services to the energy industry,” said Karl Koenig, Penta President. “PENTA Software will give W-Industries the platform for future growth and expansion as its single source of real-time financial, project and service business information, driving consistent business process execution and continual management visibility to key performance indicators. This partnership is a strong endorsement of Penta’s ongoing commitment to the EPC market.”
Engineering and Construction firms are seeking systems that:
• Project Managers can use to effectively manage and deliver multiple construction projects to their customers meeting the highest standards of budget, schedule, quality and safety.
• Unify management financials and operations across engineering, procurement and construction operations.
• Simplify multi-location, multi-company and inter-company accounting.
• Eliminate paper and manual process inefficiencies with enterprise content management.
• Support the decentralized and mobile nature of engineering and construction by being available anywhere, anytime though use of Web, mobile and other advanced technologies.
