InEight’s construction automation offerings include an SAP based solution CREW, while the HD Field Solution is a proactive task scheduler that delivers project execution alignment and visibility to enterprises. CREW is built using the SAP Business suite, optimized with industry best practices to improve key functions such as project procurement, subcontract management, project forecasting, and change management. The HD Field Solution delivers project execution alignment and visibility by connecting jobsite labor and equipment status to the InEight HD suite via a modern tablet interface. “Case studies of companies that use HD Field Solution show a savings of 10 minutes per timesheet over manual paper processes,” comments Ponseti.
Addressing the requisite to simplify complex construction designs that rely on inputs from a range of design tools, InEight built the InfinyD platform. InfinyD consolidates proprietary Building Information Models (BIM) into an open, Issued for Construction (IFC) based system. “Across the project lifecycle, the InfinyD model can be enriched with data from cost, schedule, and other project systems, while key processes, such as procurement, are optimized for time and cost savings,” articulates Ponseti.
InEight provides the intuitive foundation and visual information that construction companies need in order to keep teams aligned from start to finish
Ineight’s solutions have been successfully deployed across industries like engineering construction and operation, mining, oil and gas, and utilities. The appealing case of Aiken Group, a leading supplier of specialist engineering solutions, demonstrates the effectiveness of InEight’s project-driven solutions. The Aiken Group was spending significant capital on developing internal project management methods that failed to deliver strategic functionality. They were looking to increase the quality of estimation, project tracking, and customer reporting. After deploying InEight’s HD solutions, Aiken Group have significantly reduced time and labor needed to enter timesheet and man-hour productivity information. Migrating from legacy excel sheet to the HD Field system allowed Aiken Group’s team to triple the amount of work they can bid, effectively increasing bidding accuracy and improving per-project gross margins. Eventually, Aiken has seen more than a 300 percent increase in total productivity and a 40 percent increase in revenue.
Moving on, InEight recently opened its headquarters office in Scottsdale, and they continue to innovate in the end-to-end construction software solutions. “In today’s market, project-driven companies are challenged to meet tighter schedules and budgets on increasingly complex projects. InEight provides the intuitive foundation and visual information they need to keep teams aligned from start to finish,” concludes Ponseti.
