When Structural Challenge first spoke to us in early 2010, it was the estimating side of the business that they wanted a new solution for. With STRUMIS there’s a complete steel estimating software module, standalone and ready to use, to enable integration with CAD systems, superior workflow and a greater degree of accuracy.
With an industry-specific enquiry and steel estimating software tool, it specifically meets the needs of estimators in the steelwork fabrication industry. Allowing users to process and manage information throughout the tendering process, using a number of pricing methodologies. STRUMIS’ estimating software is for Estimators, QS and Commercial Managers involved in the detailing of accurate tenders for steelwork fabrication. It was this feature that proved to be the key selling point for growing business Structural Challenge.
Structural Challenge certainly did their research and chose STRUMIS, after carefully comparing the market, due to our local presence. With our office in Western Australia, they felt reassured knowing that we wouldn't be an entire continent away for support.
At the time of the implementation, back in July 2010, Structural Challenge were one of the few structural steel companies in Victoria who had embraced such an in-house technology. They felt, and continue to do so, that the implementation at this early stage really gave them an advantage over their competitors.
Operations Manager Nick Mavrikos said that using STRUMIS software has offered many benefits and comments: "Structural Challenge can now better manage and administer projects, providing efficiencies in material handling, quality control and production. All as a result of implementing STRUMIS”
Chris Roos, STRUMIS regional manager in Australia comments, "We’re pleased that Structural Challenge came to us with a need to improve the estimating side of their business. The benefits of having a local support team means that our clients can come to us and we can provide them with all the information, guidance they need to maximize the potential of using STRUMIS. We continue to build on our good working relationship with Structural Challenge and will be there to help them manage their workflow more efficiently."
