RedSky IT win IT Showcase Best Construction Process Management 2008 award at InterBuild

The winners of the 3rd annual iTSHOWCASE Awards, celebrating the best technology partnerships in UK Construction, were announced at Interbuild 2008.

RedSky IT won the BEST CONSTRUCTION PROCESS MANAGEMENT 2008 award. This was based on their implementation of their Summit 5000 fully integrated solution at Baxall Construction. They are integrating the key business areas of Estimating, procurement financials and contract management so they can efficiently manage the process of a contract from tender to final account.

The awards were presented to the customer and IT vendor partnership that had demonstrated to the judging panel a clear IT strategy and a successful implementation that had produced the most tangible business benefits.

Editor of iTSHOWCASE News and one of the judges of the Awards, Alison Jones, commented: "When the going gets tough - the tough get going and the award entrants this year have certainly proved that in spite of adverse economic conditions, there is still great business to be done, with the process and cost efficiencies that technology can bring to the sector still much in evidence.

"Our thanks to everyone who took the time to enter this year's competition and many congratulations to those who took home the awards, " Jones added.

RedSky IT's managing director Mike Aspinwall commented "We are delighted in Winning this award as it proves there are real cost saving benefits and process efficiencies from implementing our fully integrated Summit solution. With the current economic climate achieving these savings is more important than ever".
