Building a successful business


It is a great time to review systems and procedures in your business during a slow down in the construction industry.

This can include a review of your staff and your consultants to make best use of the talent within your organisation, and searching out the right people to help you grow your business.

It is also a good time to reflect on some of those business decisions made in the past and check that the controls put in place since have helped ensure you can face the challenges ahead. Databuild works closely within the industry, providing software to many of New Zealand’s most successful builders.

Databuild and its consulting network can provide tools to assist customers to grow their business, even in difficult times.

This is done by reviewing current systems and assisting the implementation of business controls, which include rapid estimating, accurately-costed customer quotes (no guestimating), simple price catalogue maintenance and quote request features.

A major feature to help a business is the “live” job costing, providing detailed reporting throughout the construction process.

The comprehensive general ledger accounting system for balance sheet, profit/loss and GST reporting ensures business and government reporting are easily handled.

The document control functionality and contract management systems ensure customer service issues are easily identified, and appropriate actions are taken.
