Specialty Contractors benefit from rich features in Microsoft Dynamics 365 from Sopris

Streamlining Operations

The last thing Specialty Contractors need is for technology to hinder their work day. At the same time, technologies such as mobility, the cloud and file management all need to be considered. Whether in the field or at the home office, these technologies improve communications with customers, general contractors and subcontractors to streamline operations and improve accuracy.

These technologies can also help organize and access all the documents and images that Specialty Contractors are responsible for. But as powerful as these technologies can be, they should not change the operations of the company. Instead, they should aid in streamlining existing workflows. It’s also important to implement technology in a controlled, deliberate manner—so as to encourage adoption by veteran employees.

Applying Technology to the Most Pervasive Issues

At Sopris Systems, we’re discriminating about the projects we take on and the companies we work with. If we are not absolutely certain we can transform your business performance, we are quick to recommend others better suited for the project. With our unique approach, we help Specialty Contractors address the industry challenges of implementing new technologies.

We also specialize in designing, deploying and supporting Microsoft Dynamics 365 technology solutions. Along the way, we address the challenges of information overload and the growing complexity of technology that contractor firms face every day.

Our best-fit solutions encompass scheduling and mobile field management as well as ERP, CRM, project management and content management. We deploy these solutions to address the most pervasive issues throughout the entire project lifecycle.

Sopris made the strategic decision to focus on Specialty Contractors based on our legacy of delivering superior projects and increased business performance for many current clients in this sector. Our clients’ success is based on our three-legged stool of business acumen, industry insight, and a proven technology platform.

“Sopris is helping make our organization better and stronger. The work they’re doing by deploying ERP technology will have a big impact on our future success.”

Chatbots are like Tribbles with Jobs

Ok, maybe I’m reaching with this one.  I doubt most of you even know what a Tribble is. But, to those of you who’ve enjoyed Star Trek reruns of James T. Kirk (circa 1967) up to his ears in fuzzy little space puffs, you’ll understand the reference completely.   Today,...
