Penta Technologies, Inc. – Helping industrial contractors improve efficiency and effectiveness through world-class enterprise software and services


Companies from the construction and construction-related industry must prove themselves in a competitive and challenging market environment in which the use of material resources and a high degree of flexibility in project management are very important. Intense national and international competition, increasing administrative requirements, and high pressure to innovate require contractors to support advanced business solutions that can simplify complex and unique construction processes. ERP software offers various integrated solutions that support all aspects of the construction business, from planning, project control to the cost and revenue estimation. With the help of an ERP system, construction managers can easily monitor each project's status, create milestones, delegate assignments to the right staff, and keep track of staff timesheets with just a few clicks. Real-time data enables contractors to track each staff's time on each task, making it easier for them to bill clients.

Penta Technologies, Inc. is one such firm that develops enterprise construction software that helps construction, service, and engineering enterprises improve business performance. Its software incorporates enterprise-wide document, content management, and industrial-strength business process management capabilities beyond traditional construction ERP software. From integrated Multi-Company Financials, Projects, Service, Labor, and Equipment, to Analytics, Document Imaging, Workflow, and Mobile Field software, the firm helps ensure that engineering and construction firms' best practices are leveraged more consistently across their organizations proactively to help them do what they do even better.
