Graham Construction is adding a new piece of software to its toolkit designed to help it manage, track and optimize its use of equipment and tools.

Software giant SAP said March 16 the Calgary-headquartered contractor has picked ETM.next to digitally transform its fleet. The platform keeps track of equipment and tools digitally, documenting utilization, providing real-time oversight and making manual paper records unnecessary. Developed by BearingPoint, in collaboration with SAP and a group of customers, it can be integrated into SAP’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.

“Innovation, safety and continuous improvement are the cornerstones of everything we do,” said Matt Gramblicka, vice-president of IT & Enterprise Applications at Graham, in a release. “It’s part of the value that extends beyond the materials, talent and timeline. We see the ETM.next solution as one more example of how we’re enabling our frontline workforce and delivering value to our customers.”

Along with simplifying oversight of equipment, the platform is designed to improve bill accuracy by being fully integrated into SAP’s ERP. It also cuts down on delays by eliminating the need for manual updates.
