The C-level business leaders in a construction company depend on business intelligence and analytics to make decisions. The CFO must view company revenue, budgets, and profitability metrics. The COO must regularly pull reports for construction project success levels, material pricing, and field service data to compare to forecasted timelines. Customized dashboards help the CEO accelerate decision-making with real-time insights into the project pipeline to stay ahead of the competition with agility and speed.
