Founded in 1979, David Evans and Associates provides engineering, design, and construction management services for large commercial, residential, and public sector building projects. For years, the company used separate systems for project management and accounting. The lack of integration among its various systems required employees to manually reconcile account information, which extended monthly close times and made it impossible to gain real-time insight into the company's profitability. As David Evans expanded into new markets, executives recognized the need for a fully integrated enterprise resource planning system. After a thorough evaluation process, company leaders selected Microsoft Dynamics SL based largely on its renowned flexibility and ease of use. Now, the company has an integrated view of operations and benefits from improved profitability and increased productivity.
