IDAT-Precast-ERP – ready for digitalization and focus on the user


All-in-one software solution for the precast concrete industry

“Industry 4.0”, “BIM”, “Internet of Things”, “big data” or even more general – “automatization” are keywords in todays´ construction industry.

93% of construction industry companies agree that digitalization will affect every process in their company and less than 6% actually make full use of digital planning tools so far.*

To handle upcoming challenges concerning digitalization, it´s important to integrate all business areas of a company on one platform in a transparent and efficient way. An ERP system shall be ready for further digitalization steps and support a company in all business and production processes. This is essential, because digitalization influences all areas of the industries’ value chain like sales and marketing, procurement, production or logistics. As there is no alternative to digitalization, an ERP must be open to future progresses. Unlike traditional ERP systems IDAT-ERP distinguishes itself through a web-based, open architecture and is therefore ready for future technologies.
