In the past several years, the construction industry has experienced unprecedented changes—driven by new technologies, including integration with multi-dimensional modeling, an explosion of cloud-based offerings and the demand for robust mobile capabilities. CMiC has kept pace by constantly upgrading and enhancing our advanced platform to reflect the changing needs of the industry. To match a broad spectrum of IT requirements, CMiC can be deployed as an on-premise platform, as a service (Platform-as-a-Service, or PaaS) or as part of a multi-tenanted Cloud environment. In addition, CMiC’s suite includes a mobile solution that extends its comprehensive functionality and ease-of-use to smartphones and tablets—for any time, anywhere access.

about us

A truly strategic enterprise solution won’t just enable your employees to work efficiently in the back office and in the field. It will also set the stage for future growth and expansion —at little to no added overhead cost—by leveraging the same platform for financial controls, resource and asset management, and project delivery. The benefits of an enterprise-level, single database platform extend beyond data conflicts. A system that captures and organizes data from every department in the same way allows your leadership team to draw richer insights from all the data—in real time.

When your team can successfully complete critical business functions as the number of projects expands, your organization can grow without the traditional burdens of scale. Having more data doesn’t slow down your ability to analyze it; it only makes your data more robust, your analyses more insightful and your decisions better informed and more actionable.
