Sage Launches Job Ready, Providing Resources to Tackle Construction Business Challenges
New initiative empowers construction and real estate professionals to think boldly, act decisively, and run their businesses more efficiently
IRVINE, Calif. (December 14, 2012) – Sage North America today announced the launch of Job Ready, an education-rich initiative that empowers construction and real estate professionals to think boldly, act decisively, and run their businesses more efficiently.
Construction and real estate professionals who are Job Ready:
- Are prepared for whatever the day’s work throws at them.
- Know how to contain costs, reduce risk, and keep projects moving by acting decisively.
- Have clear visibility into the people, processes, and projects that drive their business.
- Benefit from purpose-built software that’s custom-built for the industry.
“Being Job Ready means more than just having the right tools; it is about gaining business knowledge and understanding how to use information and technology to better manage a construction or real estate business,” said Jon Witty, vice president and general manager of Sage Construction and Real Estate. “Sage knows that today’s firms cannot afford to deal with situations and challenges in a reactive manner. We are committed to helping construction and real estate professionals focus on a variety of key topics so they can be prepared to tackle challenges and better position themselves to remain competitive and grow their businesses in a tight market.”
Through its new Job Ready website, Sage will provide education and resources including case studies, expert insights, and practical tips on a series of topics to help construction and real estate organizations focus on key business concerns. Business Visibility, the first Job Ready topic, focuses on the five types of visibility every construction firm should have: reporting, to know what happened in the past; monitoring, to know what’s happening now; analyzing, to understand why things happened; predicting, to know what might happen; and mobilizing to access key project data from anywhere.
A Business Visibility reference guide and an interactive e-book “The Construction Executive’s Interactive Guide to Business Visibility; Part 1: Reporting” are among the first free resources available on the topic of Business Visibility. Stay informed of new content, tools, and resources for all Job Ready topics as they are released by registering for updates here.
