Based in London, 8build have been operating since 2005 as experts in fit out and construction working across various industries including commercial, educational, residential and healthcare.

The company had been using Eque2’s Construct for Sage 200 contract management software integrated with Sage Accounts for over 10 years to manage their construction-specific processes.

Following continued growth, and as 8build were already using Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the company felt it was time to implement a solution that would help further connect their departments and integrate business processes. Having spent a year diligently researching various solutions, 8build opted to continue their relationship with Eque2 and move onto the ERP contract management software EVision.

Navjit Bakshi, I.T. Manager at 8build commented “We selected EVision as we felt it would help us remove data silos and ensure our management and delivery teams are effectively brought closer together through the use of one integrated solution.”

The company were also drawn to the solution as it is developed on the latest Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Business Central on-premise) platform providing them with integration with other Microsoft tools including SharePoint – an online tool allowing companies to easily collaborate, share files, documents and other resources.

Navjit added: “As well as the tangible benefits of saving time, ensuring our teams have the information they need to hand and removing silos which we know EVision will deliver, we’re also looking forward to reaping some of the intangible benefits which are just as important to us. We feel this will have a positive impact on staff retention as the system is easy to use and makes people’s lives easier, and therefore they are able to focus on the main purpose of their jobs and be more efficient.”

8build have also chosen to implement Eque2’s modern construction estimating software EValuate which will seamlessly integrate with EVision allowing their delivery teams to closely track budgets and variations for each project.

Doug Openshaw, Head of Sales at Eque2 added: “The use of EVision and EValuate will provide 8build’s management and delivery teams with complete visibility of performance across the business and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to continue supporting 8build.”
