Overview

PENTA is construction ERP software, which is short for construction enterprise resource planning software. It combines advanced enterprise technologies with decades of construction industry experience into one, integrated system. Going beyond traditional construction management software, PENTA also incorporates document, content, and business process management capabilities, empowering contractors to:

  • Unify management of construction accounting, financial management, payroll, projects, and service operations into one database.
  • Capture all business content electronically. Eliminate paper and manual process inefficiencies.
  • Mobilize labor, equipment, and material field reporting by crews and technicians with mobile field technology.
  • Analyze historical performance for planning, identify exceptions for action, and trend current performance for forecasting, while "drilling down" to critical supporting detail.
  • Automate multi-location, multi-company, and inter-company accounting.
SYSPRO enterprise resource planning (ERP) software supports the control, integration and synchronization of all aspects of the manufacturing process and accommodates both short and long production runs in several manufacturing environments. This single source solutionis compatible with computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS software), and it features several quality control measures. Most notable is the lot traceability function, which tracks raw materials through their entire life cycle, beginning with their receipt, manufacture and assembly, and moving on to their inspection, stocking and distribution. It also keeps track of expiration dates and certifications of quality. Another valuable feature of this mining industry software is the inventory management component, which accurately forecasts inventories by analyzing sales history and other factors. Several companies have implemented this software to improve their business operations, including U.S. Salt. They found SYSPRO's focus on the client/server environment and the solution's scalabilty as two reasons to implement this software. The software's combination of manufacturing, distribution and financial functions was enough to convince U.S. Salt that this was the right software for their company. The result for U.S. Salt was highly efficient operations that maintain inventory levels for on-demand shipments within three to five days. U.S. Salt also cited the usability of the software as a benefit. Their employees could easily use it and even personalize it for their work stations. SYSPRO is a global leader in ERP business software. With 35 years of experience in the industry, SYSPRO has gained the trust of more than 15,000 customers and has partnered with 1,500 ERP channels in 60 countries.
