For years, enterprise resources planning (ERP) software was to be found primarily within the manufacturing sector. Other forms of enterprise application were employed in other industries, and an increasing number of businesses have been enjoying the efficiencies that come from using a common technology platform and database. The construction industry, however, seemed reluctant to embrace the enterprise application concept and tended to stick with the 'point solutions' that had been developed over the years for each of the various stages of the construction processes.

In this paper we'll look at some of the factors and drivers behind the trend toward construction ERP and examine the types of functionality and other requirements contractors need to look for when selecting what is often their first-ever enterprise-wide application.
