Irrigation Contractor | Sage 300 CRE

Client

Echo Valley Irrigation contractor has been busy building its reputation as one of the most creative and skilled irrigation design and development contractors in the business for nearly two decades. Specializing in golf courses and athletic fields, the company serves all of Western Canada from its headquarters in Edmonton, Alberta. Echo Valley Irrigation is a smaller irrigation contractor that tackles big projects. To ensure those projects remain on schedule and profitable, the company relies on Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate and Sage Construction Anywhere.

“Working with Sage 300 is not at all what I expected,” says Simpson. “I thought it was for huge contractors that do multimillion-dollar projects and have hundreds of employees. Honestly, I was intimidated.”

The Challenge

Echo Valley Irrigation had tried multiple applications in an attempt to better track and manage its projects, but none fit the way the company works. Payroll was a lengthy process, as approvals slowed when the president was out of the office.

The Solution/Outcome

Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate and Sage Construction Anywhere prove to be the right fit for this growing contractor.

 “Not only does that help us keep the current project on budget, it helps us bid future projects more accurately, and ultimately be a more profitable company.”

 

Payroll processing time cut from one full week to just minutes. Access to real-time project data from anywhere helps keeps jobs on budget and profitable. Estimating future projects is now more accurate, since actual historic data is used during the bidding process.
