Miron Construction Co., Inc. has come a long way since its founding in 1918 by Patrick G. Miron. While its roots have always been in commercial and industrial projects, the scope and scale of their jobs has grown considerably, as have their procurement methods. Over the last decade, much of the company’s work has moved from hard to negotiated bids. Construction management and services, which have always included self-performed concrete, steel, masonry and carpentry work, have expanded to include preconstruction and virtual construction services.
That growth also highlighted some disconnects in the way the various offices and field crews communicated, in part due to disparate systems. By 2014, the company relied on about 18 different systems that were all siloed. Edward Ruffolo, Director of Technology Innovation at Miron Construction, further explained, “Like others at the time, our workflow interfaces were largely paper-based. We’d print a subcontract and give it to accounting for input. We realized we were outgrowing our systems and knew the mom-and-pop technology workflows had to stop. We needed a way for our offices to digitally come together.”
With an eye on a fully integrated system that connects accounting and payroll with project management and project controls, the company launched an evaluation of leading ERP solutions.
