This version adds analytical tools to the B2W Estimate element, enhances electronic signature capture with the B2W Track element, and creates opportunities to cut equipment downtime and maintenance costs using the B2W Maintain element.
B2W Software updates the elements within its enterprise-class ONE (Operational Networked Elements) platform up to three times annually to incorporate emerging technologies and specific requests from clients for new features.
“Version 15.1 is the most aggressive of these continuous enhancement efforts in our history in terms of software development and added functionality,” explains B2W Software CEO Paul McKeon. “This reflects our commitment to addressing the growing demand in the heavy construction space for a unified software platform that can improve operational efficiency, enable data-driven analytics and, ultimately, make companies more cost competitive and profitable.”
B2W Software elements are built on the ONE platform to empower construction companies to optimize data and establish a unified workflow among functions essential to profitability. Data can be entered and shared in real time across the entire network of individual B2W elements for estimating and bidding, field tracking, dispatching and maintenance. This visionary B2W approach eliminates inaccuracy, redundancy, delays and the complexity of integrating disparate applications.
