Speed to value - get MTWO Complete Construction Cloud up and running within 48 hours
The digital transformation wave that is taking over the construction sector has a decisive impact on today’s project management. Construction management software plays an important role in keeping construction projects under control and ensuring they progress according to plan. However, one of the top challenges contractors, developers and project owners face is the time spent on the implementation phase of construction software, which can take months and even years to get a fully equipped system up and running, in turn impeding project performance. Many construction leaders have experienced this challenge and frustration of system roll-out that can come with implementing digital construction systems, not only from the length of time for deployment, but also from the overhead costs brought on by system implementation. Fast deployment mitigates these issues. The ‘MTWO Go Live in 48 Hours’ solution is designed specifically to reduce this long implementation time to within 48 hours as best-practice standards, workflows and templates are pre-configured for fast deployment.
MTWO Complete Construction Cloud
Purpose-built for the building, construction and infrastructure industry by RIB Software, MTWO is the Complete Construction Cloud for contractors, real estate developers, and project owners – one centralized platform for all stakeholders to collaborate at every phase of the building process. From initial concept to completion, MTWO is a one-cloud platform for the whole project loop. Powered by one single source of truth, the platform supports real-time enterprise-wide collaboration with data that can be trusted. Meaningful metrics, displayed through the MTWO Control Tower, gives team members the real-time information necessary to know project performance in scope, costs, schedule, safety, quality, just to name a few, both overall and in detail. Our industry knowledge and expertise are combined with AI technologies to automate operations, turn data into insights to drive real-time decision-making, and eliminate tedious routine tasks for users.
