Plaza Construction Selects CMiC Construction Software

Leading National Construction Company Chooses Value, Flexibility Provided by CMiC

TORONTO – September 15, 2010 – CMiC, the leader in creating the most advanced and technologically open enterprise-wide software solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Plaza Construction, one of the nation’s largest Construction Managers and General Contractors, selected CMiC Open Enterprise v10, the most advanced software solution ever created, to integrate all departments on a single database and improve interoperability.

"With CMiC, Plaza Construction has found a tool that allows us to distribute and fully execute our core business rules and procedures as we focus our energies on building projects, serving our clients and growing nationally," said Richard Wood, president, Plaza Construction.

Based in New York City and servicing the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, Southeast and Southwest, Plaza Construction is driven by a mission of "Building Value With Vision", a philosophy that has led to the company’s success. Before choosing CMiC Open Enterprise v10, Plaza Construction had used proprietary systems for financials, project management and human resources. "As we started to expand, it became apparent that we needed a solution that ran on a scalable platform," said Chris Mills, vice president, Plaza Constriction. After a long investigation of almost every system on the market, Plaza Construction decided on CMiC construction software.

"One of the major factors in our decision was how intuitive and natural the software was right out of the box," said Richard Wood. "CMiC provides so much visibility to information for our clients, which is a fundamental aspect of our business. There’s a deeper level of transparency with CMiC that other software packages don’t have."

CMiC Open Enterprise v10 integrates all functions - financials, project management, project controls, human resources and business development – onto a single, scalable database, allowing project stakeholders to operate with real-time information. CMiC grants unparalleled access to information with flexible reporting capability, from a big picture overview of the project to drilling down into detail for specific transactions.

"CMiC welcomes Plaza Construction to the growing CMiC user community," said Bassem Hamdy, vice president, solutions, CMiC. "CMiC Open Enterprise v10 will help Plaza as they grow nationally and enhance their already high quality of customer service. By integrating all departments and using real-time information, Plaza Construction will continue to be one of the nation’s top construction managers and general contractors."
