Cold Spring Construction Reaps Significant Benefits with Computer Guidance Corporation’s Dynamic eCMS Business Intelligence and Analytics Functionality
Federal Contractor Achieves Improved Productivity, Efficiency, and Effectiveness Driving Greater Profitability from Real-time, Accurate ERP Data
Scottsdale, Arizona—October 20, 2020—Computer Guidance Corporation, the leading developer of cloud-based ERP solutions for the construction industry, today announced that Cold Spring Construction has gained significant benefits from leveraging eCMS’ advanced Business Intelligence and Analytics functionality.
A long-time CGC client, Cold Spring Construction has recently implemented eCMS Interactive Data Inquiry (IDI) business intelligence and analytics functionality enabling the federal contractor to streamline and automate its user-specific dashboards, data views, and reporting capability for the entire organization. Cold Spring has also been able to standardize its corporate consolidated financial reporting and the benefits of both of these activities have been tremendous.
“eCMS puts true power in our peoples’ hands by providing our teams with a clean and easy way to access business-critical information on a daily basis, from any device anywhere,” stated Richard Forrestel, Jr., Treasurer, Cold Spring Construction. “We have an ongoing and immediate understanding of our AR balances, cash accounts, billings, AP status, job costing, and more. It’s basically a real-time snapshot of our current cash flow status, and our current jobs and their performance, supporting faster, fact-based decisions to drive our business forward.”
eCMS houses a wealth of integrated information that users can tap into on demand, in real time through a secure Web-based interface powered by IDI functionality. Users have the ability to quickly and easily create customizable dashboards specific to their areas of responsibility. Users can now drill down into granular data or view information at a high level, depending on the task at hand. Users can also export information into Microsoft Excel or just simply share the ERP data through the web interface as IDI data within the organization, leveraging various output options such as integrated workflows, emails, reports/views, and dashboards.
“Our innovative web-based BI &A technology is designed to allow everyday users to quickly and easily extract specific data elements from the underlying ERP system and repurpose it, display it, or share it in customizable, user-friendly formats, including dashboards, tiles, views, reports, and more.,” said Ken Kopal, Director of Business Intelligence and Emerging Technologies, Computer Guidance Corporation. “In doing so, Cold Spring Construction users are now spending their time making and managing critical business decisions and future outcomes rather than developing reports or coding programs of their own.”
