The contractor has adopted a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution from conject (formerly BIW Technologies).
Mace made the switch as efforts to maintain and update its existing in-house platform became more expensive and the existing Microsoft Access-based system was not flexible enough to meet the demands of new client projects and programmes.
All new projects and programmes are now managed using the new system with 70 projects globally now ‘live’.
About 250 Mace staff now use the conject commercial management application every day.
Commercial directors can monitor groups of projects and programmes using the system’s Business Intelligence module; cost managers and quantity surveyors can manage budgets and project costs, by work package or cost code.
Mace operations director Crawford Patterson said: “Many of our workflows run across different project disciplines and project functions, so the ability for teams to collaborate on the same platform is most important to us.
“Conject gives us visibility into our commercial activities, with detailed auditability whenever required.”
