Focused on IT Strategy and Business Performance
Construction companies place specific demands on information technology, with key processes and departments highly reliant on information exchange, tracking, and monitoring. From job costing to inventory, project management to finance and accounting, your business depends on its information systems. Burger Consulting Group (BCG) understands that. We know your customers and your internal stakeholders – from management to line personnel – need accurate, timely data. We can help you establish a strategy for how IT should function for your company, and can design a solution that meets your specific needs. Our services include:
HR Process Review, Automation, and Selection
BCG will review current HR process to determine areas of inefficiency and risk with the organization and their relative impact. BCG also will provide guidance on best practices with an industry-specific focus.
ECM Readiness Assessment
Learn how an ECM Readiness Assessment could benefit your organization.
IT Strategic Planning
Working with senior management, operations, and accounting, BCG’s professionals will develop a clear IT strategy based on your company’s direction and objectives, identifying practical issues and constraints. This includes reviewing the potential opportunities presented by advanced technologies, such as field data collection, electronic content management (ECM), building information modeling (BIM) and GPS solutions.
Software review and selection are critical when making a technology investment, especially when considering an enterprise solution (ERP), and vendor independence is a key differentiator of BCG. We maintain relationships with the industry’s leading technology providers, but our evaluation, selection, and implementation processes remain completely objective. We monitor developments in software to understand emerging technologies while minimizing clients’ implementation risks, and help clients determine the optimal solution for their business.
Implementation Planning and Project Management
BCG coordinates with executive management, operations, and external software resources to develop, schedule and budget for an effective implementation. We offer insight on the structure and reporting relationships necessary for an internal project management office (PMO); we monitor software installations; and we offer guidance on specific challenges that emerge during a project, from data interchange to migration to internal process and change management.
BCG’s systems evaluations focus on determining the capability, strengths, and weaknesses of your existing systems, including finance, job costing, inventory management, project management and HR applications, against the framework of your organization’s operational requirements.
Business Process Review
BCG evaluates your current project procedures and systems, including accounting, job cost, forecasting, change order processing, billing, project management and scheduling to provide objective advice on ways to more fully optimize your existing technology platform and/or realize improved ROI.
After any implementation is complete, organizations frequently need to revisit certain business operations and processes to better take advantage of the new technology. BCG’s post-implementation assessments review the effectiveness of the newly deployed architecture and functionality, and identify how to fine-tune your use of the systems.
Project Management and Contract CIO Services
To best evaluate an organization’s return on its IT investment, ensure internal adoption of technologies being deployed, and ensure the correct use of new systems and processes across departments, function, and geography, it is often beneficial to establish a Project Management Office (PMO). Burger Consulting Group can recommend a structure for such a PMO, as well as provide on-site CIO support in order to best leverage project management techniques across the enterprise, keeping IT strategic planning and specific projects on time, on budget, and on course with your organizational objectives.
