TRAC has restored more than 1,500 buildings in Barcelona city and its surroundings, including buildings of all styles and architectural genres, all levels of organizational and technical complexity, and with a wide range of knowledge and skill requirements.
Their experience and results have allowed them to progress year after year, until reaching the current prestige that has made them one of the leading companies in the sector.
TRAC was in a period of growth, which, due to the complexity of its services, required a drastic organizational improvement.
Multiple restauration projects are managed, ranging from the initial study and commercial phase to the execution of the work, including material purchases and contracting of external suppliers.
As the first phase can be very long, many projects are managed at the same time and the company needed to monitor the status and situation of each project at any given time.
For TRAC it was clear that they needed to improve their information system. They turned to Auren, a consultancy firm they collaborate with in aspects of financial advisory and business consulting.
Auren performed an analysis of their business processes and designed two possible architectures to improve their information system.
The first option was an extensive ERP which included the management of work and the second option was a simple ERP for the general accounting and financial tasks combined with a BPMS to manage work tasks (purchasing, budgets, monitoring and cost control) integrated with existing software and Business Intelligence (BI) (the existing software was used to prepare construction budgets but fell short in terms of management).
They chose the second option, and following the evaluaon of different BPMS, they selected AuraPortal iBPMS.
Customer onboarding and Commercial follow-up.
Production management, Work certifications, Sub-contracting management, Sub-contracting proforma, Cost control of construction material, Time management and Margin management
Special permits and Vacations.
Payment control and Control of outsourced companies.
"AuraPortal also has very powerful document management capabilities that can generate and integrate documents in the system when needed, with easy access thanks to a fully structured organization."
"There is nothing more satisfying for a consultant than making and accurate recommendation and a grateful customer. The customer was involved in the system implementation, and collaborated with the project team when necessary. We must congratulate the management of TRAC for its commitment to a differential architecture and for its continued support in the project, which is surely a fundamental part of the success achieved."
"We were very clear about our work process, but we did not have the appropriate software. We have that now with AuraPortal and all our data is centralized in a single information system eliminating any vulnerability."
