Dean Crowder Construction Stays Lean and Profitable With Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate and Sage Construction Anywhere
Paving Contractor Increases Efficiency in the Office and Reduces Costs With Sage Construction Business Solutions

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Sage North America today announced that Dean Crowder Construction, Inc., a paving contractor in Northwestern Arkansas, has grown more profitable by using Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate (formerly Sage Timberline Office) with cloud-based Sage Construction Anywhere to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

The company began using Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate several years ago. The solution, which includes everything from construction job costing to payroll to estimating to project management and more, helped the staff increase productivity when it had to downsize during the recent economic downturn and was integral to its ability to survive the recession in good financial health.

"Thanks to the checks, balances, and alerts within the software, we were able to discover where a vendor had overcharged us," said Maeva Mayes, office manager at Dean Crowder. "Using the documentation the system provided, we were able to go back and collect more than $20,000."

Dean Crowder recently added Sage Construction Anywhere, a cloud-based collaborative solution that works with Sage 300 and arms field personnel with the real-time job information that they need to keep their projects moving. Billy Tate, one of the foremen at Dean Crowder said, "Sage Construction Anywhere has made my job tremendously easier. When I'm on a piece of equipment, I can look down at my iPad and see every aspect of the job in my hand without having to go to the office and dig through stacks of prints. That's invaluable." The field staff can now use their iPads to access all project reports and documents, including site drawings and photos, while on the jobsite.

"With tools like Sage Construction Anywhere, our project managers easily can do what their assistants used to have to do," said Mayes. "We can get more work done with fewer staff members while keeping our teams in the field where they are most productive. In this way we can grow revenues without growing our payroll."

Dean Crowder Construction continues to find new ways to optimize its use of Sage 300 and Sage Construction Anywhere. The company recently began tracking all of its subcontracts with Sage 300 and soon plans to have employees enter timecard data using mobile devices through Sage Construction Anywhere.

"We've had people knocking on our door and wanting to show us new software, but there isn't software out there that meets our needs like Sage 300," said Lisa Crowder, president of Dean Crowder Construction. "It's been amazing. It's like having an extra person in your office to help you manage the things that you need to manage."

The rest of the Dean Crowder staff agrees. "It's the solution to all of a contractor's problems," concludes Mayes. "We are a smaller, leaner organization than we were a few years ago, yet we are more profitable. We attribute much of our success to Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate and Sage Construction Anywhere."
