The paradigm for Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) firms is changing more rapidly than ever before. Executives in search of transformative change must rely on software that can easily adapt to evolving AEC industry demands.

Microsoft Dynamics AX for Architecture, Engineering and Construction, along with Sopris Field Service mobile apps, delivers on the promise of change by implementing a sophisticated, comprehensive ecosystem that provides all of the tools and best practices every AEC firm needs. And, with Sopris Systems, an organization can have their solution on premises, in the cloud, or a combination of both.

These AEC tools are not only built to work seamlessly together, but also to allow Architecture, Engineering & Construction firms to deliver solutions in stages that align best with the organization—beginning, for example, with the resource and project management module, moving on to core financial control, and then to elements like performance management, competency, employee profiles, and even mobile time and expense management. The order and method of implementation is up to the organization, and Sopris plans the project in detail with you, leveraging extensive AEC experience to ensure your success.

Human capital management can be particularly confounding for AEC firms, where employee profiles and subcontractor records are not always easily shared and/or updated. With Dynamics AX and Sopris Field Service, necessary resources can be hard-booked or soft-booked as needed. Budgeting and cost controls; templates for project planning; field data capture and reporting, even when offline; and workflow approval are all part of a seamless, integrated ecosystem that leverages the familiar and ubiquitous Microsoft Project, Excel, Outlook, SharePoint, and Windows software, greatly minimizing internal training time.

With AX and Sopris Systems, organizations can:

  • Optimize your return on human capital.
  • Create a catalyst for innovation both within and throughout project delivery.
  • Deliver customized client experiences.
  • Leverage project analytics for invaluable insights.
  • Implement industry best practices on a platform that grows with the organization.

With Dynamics AX, a firm’s leaders can finally glean a three-dimensional view of their business that includes human resources, sales and marketing, project management and accounting, service management, and company financials—and increased reporting and accountability throughout the organization—from anywhere, on any device.

The result: a more immediate return on investment.

Your implementation partner matters as much as the software. Sopris Systems has extensive experience bridging cultural and process boundaries that often lead to project failures—between owners, builders, subcontractors, engineers and architects—and builds change protocols into the very nature of your organization regardless of location or local expertise. With those kinds of capabilities internalized, Architecture, Engineering & Construction firms are ready to compete at the highest level, now, and in the many years ahead.
