Surface area

There is more behind cost controlling than just a spreadsheet. Structured financial data enables quicker and comprehensible outlining of project processes as well as serve as a source of all important project information. Project teams use cost monitoring not only as a tool to keep control over finances, liquidity, revenues and make important decisions but also for reporting to external stakeholders such as project investors; drawing on the information contained in the data.

Leveraging on the importance of financial data in construction project management, Alasco combines invoice workflow with real-time controlling. Financial information from invoices, budget changes or addenda is automatically structured for order-related cost overview and forecasting. The digital capture and processing of all data and documents in one system enables continuity, transparency and up to date data collection. This creates data with added value: time-consuming manual tasks such as manual checking and calculation of data are no longer necessary. Project managers can now make decisions even faster and more reliably.
