During October 2011, the Armitage Williams Group chose CostCon to enhance service to clients, drive team productivity and business profitability. Following a thorough review of internal systems, business requirements, and the available software system options, the Armitage Williams Group has chosen the Christchurch based CostCon software package to handle their job costing, accounting and documentation requirements.
The Armitage Williams Construction and Interiors companies are utilising the earthquake induced “lull in proceedings” to replace ageing systems. Like many in the construction industry, Armitage Williams are waiting patiently, poised to fully get in behind the rebuild in Canterbury.
Ben Harrow, Construction Group Director, believes that the project management and costing structures they can deploy within CostCon, will free up Armitage Williams’ resource so they can focus on the real challenges in front of them. Ben acknowledges that their old systems would constrain their company’s growth. “CostCon will enable us to provide a higher level of service to customers and construction partners. Our project team management are confident that CostCon will free us to focus on delivering cost effective projects to tight timelines.”
Company Accountant, Ruth Kellow comments, “the high level of integration that CostCon provides will free up my team’s time to get in behind the rebuild effort. I know our division management and client project managers require tailored reports, schedules and documentation. CostCon’s flexible reporting gives us the tools to tailor the reports and forms to suit clients, insurers and rebuild project partners.”
