SIS Software: Software Solutions Enabling Business your Way

Maxwell Thomas, Partner and EVP
Over the last few years, the demand for point solutions in the construction technology landscape has been gradually increasing. Most construction companies have to deal with ten or more critical business applications that are often not integrated to run their business. Organizations need a solution that takes them from the bid or proposal phase to the project close-out, with proper execution and analysis along the way to help them preserve margins. In order to help companies achieve operational excellence, SIS Software, headquartered in Georgia, provides, develops and implements financial and operational software for construction companies to help them achieve operational excellence. SIS helps companies manage every stage of the project life cycle with complete project management, accounting, and CRM Software built on Microsoft Dynamics, CRM, and SharePoint. SIS with its industry solutions focuses on ease of use, integration and cost of ownership. “With flexible software we can preserve many of the business processes that have made a business successful and leverage a common database platform like Microsoft SQL thus enabling easy integration between solutions as well as integrations to legacy applications that are required,” says Maxwell Thomas, Partner and EVP at SIS software.

Companies in the construction industry are in need of software solutions that are user friendly and enable “business my way” in a manner profitable to their organization. The software solutions delivered by SIS, using Microsoft’s integrated platform with SIS industry IP, provides the ability to efficiently integrate business development software (CRM) with ERP, and Compass Project and Document Management built on SharePoint. The company’s recent add on modules in the area of mobile time entry, along with union and certified payroll for Dynamics AX have been an area of focus and growth for SIS, bridging major gaps for contractors.

SIS software has major clients in verticals like architecture, construction, energy and caters to general, specialty, government, and professional contractors.
In one instance, Industrial Electrical Company (IEC), a company in the field for more than 75 years in electrical contracting, electronic field services, industrial automation amongst others, had issues with implementation. IEC partner’s had failed to properly implement the enterprise software package they had purchased to combine their three divisions into one core financial system. SIS software was called in to implement AX and deliver add-on IP to better manage cost and margin for the larger electrical contracting business as well as complex Payroll requirements. This helped the client to consolidate their consulting, parts sales and electrical contracting, while giving them the unique functionality and the autonomy they needed.

SIS also just recently launched “Compass in the Cloud Project Management” solution powered by SharePoint to enable contractors to acquire robust solutions with minimal investment. SIS stays in lock step with Microsoft with development, as the next version of Dynamics AX releasing this year will transform an “all” user interface to pure HTML5, enabling complete mobility regardless of role or function.

“Many implementations fail because they get bogged down in business process re-engineering due to software, and we avoid that with configurable software as much as possible. We want to enable companies to keep their “secret sauce” intact as they implement software,” says Thomas on an ending note.
