Business Analytics Software for Managing Construction Projects

RedSky’s Business Analytics Software for Managing Construction Projects makes it easy to find and use management information right from your web browser.

When your managers need specific information for a construction project, they don’t want to waste time trawling through endless reports. They want pertinent information, delivered quickly and easily in a clear, recognisable format.

That’s exactly what the Business Analytics module delivers. End users can interrogate the Summit database directly via their web browser and develop their own unique views to examine relevant, real-time information.  

These user-friendly, role-based dashboards are easy to develop and provide sleek, real-time visibility to your teams. Key information is displayed in an ‘at a glance’ overview, allowing your teams to manage project performance effectively and efficiently.

Example: Project Manager Dashboard

Today’s managers expect to be able to access information at the touch of a button. The Business Analytics user interface meets this need in full: it’s fast, direct and intuitive. What’s more, it offers impressive new ways to help users understand, analyse and visualise the data using the system’s filtering, formatting, grouping, drilling and charting features.
