The construction and property services sectors operate on complex and interdependent, and sometimes vertically integrated supply chains. For well established organisations, operations are driven by sophisticated and often legacy ERP systems. To achieve strong supply chain integration or facilitate joint-venture arrangements, we have learned that maintaining the centrality of these systems is critical.
As these organisations modernise through the adoption of domain specific ERPs such as HCM SaaS, there are also complex integration requirements. In these scenarios we have applied abstraction principles to deliver seamless integration flows (see our case study on Thiess). An adaptive ecosystem is required to accommodate the multiple integration patterns needed to service the different domains and use cases.
The construction and property services industries are also driven by highly structured operational workflows and decision-making processes for cost control and legislative compliance. These processes present significant opportunities for applying automation and artificial intelligence for efficiency gain and competitive advantage (see our case study on a Property and Infrastructure Group).
