Milwaukee, WI -- Penta Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of construction ERP software, announces today that is has been designated a 2008 Constructech Top Product award winner for the Commercial Construction industry. Penta was recognized in the New Product Category for PENTA Business Analytics, which allows construction firms to analyze past performance for planning, trend current performance for forecasting, and identify exceptions to key performance indicators that may require immediate action.
The Constructech Top Products honor the best products tailored for the construction market. Winning entries were chosen based on product description, the product's overall usefulness and uniqueness to the industry, and the customer growth rate for the particular product throughout the past few years.
"The nearly 100 entries submitted for the first Constructech Top Products awards demonstrated what strides the construction industry has taken during the past few years," says Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Constructech. "I would like to congratulate the winners in the commercial sector for the steps they have taken to continue delivering quality solutions to builders and contractors."
"The highly competitive, high risk nature of construction is causing contractors to make useful and accurate analysis and reporting a top priority," says Harvey Shovers, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "Demand for PENTA Business Analytics has been very strong since its launch in early 2007. This award underscores the critical need for contractors to be more aware of all business issues and trends identified through measurement of key performance indicators."
PENTA Business Analytics automatically builds and distributes packages of information to designated users within a construction firm. Whether pre-built or customized, PENTA Business Analytics information packages are designed for analysis, and include graphical, flexible information views that can include data from non-PENTA applications as well. These personalized information packages, often containing Dashboards, can be automatically delivered by e-mail or posted to a server location on a scheduled basis. Publishing the information packages allows analysis work to be done anywhere, completely disconnected from your network, and without the cost of building and maintaining a data warehouse. PENTA Business Analytics also provides report-writing, drill-to-detail capability, user-specific dashboards, OLAP graphing and analysis, offline access and automated redistribution.
"The products chosen as the 2008 Constructech Top Products are innovative, successful, and some of the best of what can be utilized today. Constructech's readers are eagerly adopting the available technology solutions in the commercial construction space," said Mike Carrozzo, editor of Constructech magazine.
