Grow Your Business with Construction Management Software

Construction ERP Handbook

Attempting to run and grow a successful construction organization in today’s business environment is a multilayered undertaking with many moving parts and players. With shifting industry demands and building delivery methods, it’s more important than ever to focus on efficiencies and productivity, high-quality, on-budget project delivery, open communication between associates and clients, profitability, and client satisfaction—all while taking on more projects.

There are many Construction Management Software solutions on the market today that can solve pieces of this puzzle, but few are able to offer a holistic answer to the problems that the modern contractor faces—handling bids, project management, budgets and job costing, subcontractors, compliance, and so much more.

This handbook guides construction companies through the evolving world of Construction ERP applications, including functional requirements based on the type of construction and the contracting services provided. Readers will discover differences between general ERP and industry applications, standard features available in midmarket ERP systems, and industry-specific requirements.


In this handbook, construction organizations and contractors can discover:

  • How project scope and duties impact system needs
  • What the 4 major construction types are, and the ERP features they require
  • How legacy construction ERP solutions fare against core construction ERP systems
  • What general ERP and contractor-specific ERP features look like
  • Why Acumatica’s construction ERP is the way to go
