EnduserERP– We Know End-user Better

"Technology is the key to drive efficiency and take the sector to the next level" was one of the key highlights of 'Emerging trends in real estate – India 2012,' a paper published by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in collaboration with Grant Thornton India LLP.

The construction industry is one of the most unorganised sectors in India today. Inability to obtain real-time information from far-flung sites, reconciliation of labour and material costs, traceability of high-value machineries across sites, poor inventory control leading to high inventory carrying costs, and little control on overheads are the major impediments in decision-making. Intervention of information technology is the need of the hour to tackle these impediments.

The successful companies in this sector today have an integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in place for substantially improving operational efficiencies across the board.

Keeping this in mind, Ravish Systems led by Dr Yashodhan Joshi, a Ph.D. holder in Information Technology has developed an integrated web-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application for the construction, infrastructure & real estate industry. EndUserErp, developed keeping end-user in mind, has been built ground-up, using the latest cutting-edge open source tools, and draws from Dr. Joshi's twenty-plus years of experience in the IT space across diverse functional domains, including valuable domain knowledge inputs from industry veterans.

All the ERP products available in India are rigid and based on the so called "Industry Best Practices". This approach does not work in the construction industry where execution is not based on "Standard Operating Procedures" or "Industry Best Practices". In this scenario, the application should have the wherewithal to customise according to the requirements of the ultimate user. After a lot of research on a varied database of current construction practices, EndUserErp has built this unique capability of being able to be customised to the tune of 30% as per the requirements of the user organisation.

The over-arching functional goal of EndUserErp is to provide Information that can be converted into knowledge by decision-makers whenever and wherever the need arises. It provides an aggregation of a large amount of data and functionality at one place, where it is presented in a user-oriented format for purposeful service to its users and decisionmakers.

The procurement and inventory module of EndUserErp enables the enterprise to achieve maximum value for money. Purchase indents and purchase orders have a strong approval process flow. Resources can be allocated from one project site to another to save on inventory carrying costs since EndUserErp receives updates in real time from all the project sites and offices. The integrated modules in EndUserErp helps project managers to take project execution to a higher level by getting higher bang for the buck. Maximum flexibility to define and calculate overheads in the estimation module enables them to plan for and track the smallest of material and overhead costs. The project scheduler and daily progress module are simple to use and enable the project manager and the senior management to track performance of major work items on a defined timeline from the project dashboard. A simple tool for employees to plan and update tasks on a daily basis is also available for efficient utilisation of time.

For builders, the CRM module enables effective monitoring of the sales cycle, from enquiry management, stage payments to possession. Customer information is available at one place in a 360 degree view. It improves the performance of sales executives exponentially.

EndUserErp employs the technology of cloud computing. The enterprises running on EndUserErp, don't worry about application maintenance, hardware upgrades or data backup. It thus becomes extremely cost-sseffective as compared to the other conventional construction ERP applications. Lastly, the entire application is accessible through a normal broadband internet connection.
