InEight and Microsoft Launch Construction 365

InEight has announced a strategic integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365 to deliver Construction 365, a unified enterprise platform comprising over 30 different integrations to help businesses improve and standardise insights and information flow between office and field for capital construction projects.

This integration unites the date experience (CRM, Estimating, Project Controls, BOM, Risk Management, Document Management, Scheduling, Accounting and Procurement) to help businesses deliver improved transparency and alignment, by providing a single source of truth to enhance ease of user access, collaboration and security throughout the Microsoft and InEight applications.

Using the end-to-end, customisable platform, customers will have the ability to connect data and processes seamlessly and intuitively across systems to reduce errors, omissions and redundancies while improving the outcome of complex long-term projects.

Speaking about the announcement of Construction 365, Pål Christian Hustoft, CFO at Veidekke Entreprenør AS, a joint customer of Microsoft and InEight and one of Scandinavia’s largest construction companies, said: “Veidekke is the largest construction company in Norway due to organic growth and a history of mergers and acquisitions, and we take pride in being a company that develops a best practice for our business, and we want a unified approach to the digital transformation.

“We believe InEight’s Construction 365 solution will meet our business needs as a fully integrated digital transformation platform, providing us the transparency and control throughout our business. We expect the ongoing implementation will confirm our beliefs, making it possible for us with a greater ability to create great projects for our clients with our desired profitability and on schedule.”

Explaining InEight’s integration strategy, Mike Paul, Managing Director for EMEA at InEight, commented: “While the physical world is still seeing borders and restrictions on freedom of movement, the trend in the data world is the opposite. Connectivity is key. Through this integration with Microsoft Dynamics, InEight is creating interconnected workplaces to enhance collaboration and project outcomes in capital construction. It’s an important and timely step towards our goal of digitalising construction project management.”
