Clark Construction group, one of the largest general building and civil contractors in the United States, with revenues of over US$4bn per annum has been working with Scott Unger’s construction Platform-as-a-Service specialist Kahua (July 2015 post) on a major business process and workflow reengineering project (news release).
Clark embarked on a study of its business processes with the objective of dramatically reducing costs while improving overall jobsite and team productivity. It selected Kahua’s PaaS offering for its ability to both conform to their business processes and dynamically change to meet their evolving needs. Additionally, Clark favoured Kahua’s platform for collaboration and rapid application development, as well as its online marketplace with a variety of applications to address common construction industry challenges. Steve Stankiewicz, Clark’s applications development manager, said:
“We began this initiative with a goal to reduce costs, improve efficiency by streamlining key business processes, and explore better integration options with our financial systems and other third party applications. We are achieving our objectives and are very pleased with the results.”
Since rolling out Kahua, Clark has realised improved efficiency with data retrieval, as well as seamless integration with accounting systems and other essential applications. Clark has already deployed Kahua on projects across the country totalling more than $2B of work.
