WHO IS CMiC?
Founded in 1974, CMiC today delivers state-of-the-art software solutions, purpose-built for the construction industry. From its inception, CMiC has maintained a laser focus on automating and enhancing essential back-office functions – such as accounting, enterprise planning, human capital management and asset management – as well as field operations, including project management & controls, collaboration and a full suite of apps for mobile devices.
The depth and breadth of CMiC’s construction management platform powers a variety of companies in the AEC industry – from general, specialty and heavy/highway contractors to project owners in government, higher education, high technology, hospitality, healthcare and manufacturing. While the full range of modules and applications have been developed in-house, the CMiC platform offers the flexibility to integrate 3rd party point solutions, such as OCR scanning, e-sign and service management applications, through integration adapters and API bundles.
Customers can choose from a range of flexible deployment options: on-premise; Platform-as-a-Service (private cloud); or a multi-tenant cloud environment. This gives all customers – from small regional contractors to multi-billion-dollar global firms – the flexibility to choose a model that best meets their requirements, budgets and timeframes.
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. CMiC’s platform includes a full suite of mobile apps that extend its comprehensive functionality and ease-of-use to smartphones and tablets—for any time, anywhere access.
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.
