During the second half of 2021, we saw a huge increase in companies approaching us looking to make improvements to the way they bid for new work in the pre-contract phase, and how they can streamline the delivery of projects during the post-contract phase.
At Eque2, we supply a range of construction-specific software solutions which manages the whole project lifecycle from start to finish. Therefore, with the turn of the new year, we wanted to recap on how we helped more construction companies in December start the process of maximising efficiency and accuracy across their business using our software.
Pulse Design & Build
Pulse Design & Build Ltd (Pulse) undertakes building and refurbishment contracts for public and private clients. Based out of Congleton, Cheshire, Pulse offers a highly personal, attentive service, and a consistent professional approach to design, pre-construction, construction, and aftercare.
In the past, Pulse were using Conquest for their pre-contract processes. However, they wanted to streamline their estimating processes and find a solution which was easier for their whole team to use.
After discovering Eque2, a demo was arranged where Pulse saw how EValuate Estimating software can help them to produce accurate tenders whilst providing the ability to produce Bills of Quantities quickly and easily. They also saw how user-friendly the interface was, meaning that anyone who needed could access the system without feeling overwhelmed. After the demo, Pulse Design & Build decided to go ahead with Eque2’s EValuate.
WCI Sewage Treatment
WCI Sewage Treatment (WCI) is a recognised expert in the UK sewage and wastewater industry. With over 35 years of experience and proven capabilities, WCI provides best-in-class solutions that exactly meet client requirements.
Before Eque2, WCI were using Redsky. They found the solution far too complex and expensive for their needs. They reached a point where they were using Excel spreadsheets, Redsky and QuickBooks side by side, tripling the amount of work needed.
WCI needed a post-contract solution that reduced the risk of duplication whilst providing total visibility of costs and projects through advanced and live reports. Soon after looking for a new solution, WCI approached Eque2 and a demo was arranged.
Through the demo, WCI saw how Eque2’s Construct for Sage could increase the visibility of their projects exponentially through a variety of live reports including Work in Progress (WIP), Budget vs. Costs and Profit & Loss views. They also saw how Construct integrates with ServiceStream, our maintenance management software, which would allow them to manage the administration of planned or reactive maintenance works and issue work out to their engineers.
After the demo, WCI Sewage treatment purchased Sage Accounts, Construct for Sage, ServiceStream and the Invoice Capture Module to create an integrated suite of solutions which will together remove the need for duplication throughout the lifecycle of their projects.
