B2W Software, a leading provider of enterprise-class construction software, services and solutions, today announced its comprehensive cloud solution — B2W Cloud. The company has embedded its entire Operational Networked Elements (ONE) platform into the cloud to create an easy-to-use and flexible mobile tool that gives construction professionals anytime, anywhere access to core business data with the highest levels of uptime, security and scalability. In addition, B2W’s cloud offering was also recently recognized by the 2014-2015 Cloud Awards Program, within the Best Cloud Hosting Provider category.
The ONE offering, which includes its Estimate, Dispatch, Track, and Maintain elements— networked in a single, unified platform—gives construction personnel and executives mobile device (tablet and smartphone) access to real-time data right on the construction site and beyond. This ubiquitous access to all information results in more informed decision-making, deadline adherence and maximized profits.
“The B2W Cloud enhancements make it easier for decision makers to access and leverage data anywhere, regardless of location,” said Paul McKeon, CEO of B2W Software. “All critical data from estimates to equipment maintenance, can now be securely delivered via the cloud; there’s no need to toggle across multiple silo’d products with inconsistent information. Now on-site workers can make immediate, informed decisions based on real-time information.”
In addition, B2W Cloud offers a multi-layered security system to guarantee confidentiality, integrity and availability. The offering is fully SSAE compliant and ISO audited for statutory and regulatory requirements. All data is updated and secured within B2W’s data center – eliminating worries over IT maintenance and reliability. This frees IT departments from time-consuming building, management and maintenance of servers and applications.
Other B2W Cloud features and benefits include:
- Increased operational efficiencies and accuracy for more profitable jobs
- ONE operational database for single-point data entry, enabling instant cross-module resource visibility and collaboration
- Comprehensive integration with every major accounting software package
- Advanced capabilities between the field and office via tablet and smartphone access
