Sage X3 is suitable for enterprises operating in the construction space who need a comprehensive end to end business system especially when the enterprise consists of multiple legal entities dealing with complex projects. Sage X3 Construction is a good fit for non-traditional construction industries such as airplane, commercial vessel, and maritime construction projects. It isn’t a good fit for a single home builder but is suitable for large scale housing developers. The Sage X3 Construction system is also suitable for enterprises involved in building Infrastructure (Highway, roadwork, water works, gas lines etc.) and civil engineering.
The addition of SAWSOFT software to the Sage X3 ERP system creates an industry specific solution similar to the Sage Real Estate and Construction system (Timberline) but on a Web native modern platform.
The business profile for Sage X3 Construction is ideally fewer than 75 projects p.a., and annual revenue of £15 M GBP p.a. and greater. FTE count isn’t a good indicator of a company’s suitability to use Sage X3 Construction, but project management maturity is. Companies employing Project Managers, Project Schedulers, and Construction Managers in distinct roles are more likely to obtain value from an investment in Enterprise Management Construct.
