Leading California General Contractor Chooses To Replace CGC and Integrate All Departments with CMiC
TORONTO – April 22, 2010 – CMiC, the leader in creating the most advanced and technologically open enterprise-wide software solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Charles Pankow Builders, LTD, an award-winning general contractor, selected CMiC construction software to integrate all departments, improve efficiency and enhance productivity.
Based in Pasadena, California with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland and Honolulu, Hawaii, Pankow has consistently delivered quality projects with speed and efficiency since 1963 and is a pioneer of the Design-Build project delivery system. Pankow will replace its current system, which has been in place for more than 10 years, with the latest version of CMiC software. "Our previous software system lacked the integration and flexibility that CMiC software provides," said John Bassetti, Director of IT of Pankow. "At the time the software was chosen, in 1998, it provided adequate functionality. As Pankow has continued to grow, the system became inflexible in meeting our needs, and the lack of integration between financials and operations was a major issue."
One of main factors in Pankow selecting CMiC is CMiC's philosophy of total integration, where all departments and functions are integrated on a single, scalable database without the need of data bridges. CMiC's integrated approach reduces multiple data entry, which in turn reduces the chances of errors and increases the reliability of the information. CMiC also increases communication between departments, creating a more productive organization.
"CMiC is extremely pleased to have Pankow join our growing community of users that have recognized the business value in integration," said Bassem Hamdy, Vice President, solutions, CMiC. "By choosing not to upgrade to the next version of CGC and selecting CMiC instead, Pankow will benefit from having the only construction software solution designed for companies of Pankow’s size. Our clients are some of the largest and most technologically progressive construction organizations in North America, who have all realized the benefits of using a fully integrated, construction-industry specific software solution. We are sure that Pankow will achieve great success in using CMiC software."
