Design/Build Firm Improves Project Management With Simplified Access to Analytics

KDA Holdings, a design/build firm based in Georgia, needed to better track profit margins on its projects, but was limited by its Sage Timberline software. Managers at KDA could not easily analyze information in Timberline because of the slow performance of the database, a reliance on outside consultants to create sophisticated reports, and the accounting system's inflexibility. To improve operations, KDA worked with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner SIS to switch to Microsoft Dynamics SL. With the new solution, KDA managers and executives have real-time insight into their business and can better evaluate project information, leading to more efficient operations and project management. Since switching to Microsoft Dynamics SL, the company has improved average profit margins on its projects by 3 percent, and streamlined accounting.
