Managing and tracking an increasing number of major construction projects has meant a surge in new staff for Beard. Historically, the award-winning company used MS Project to manage their construction projects but their increased staff numbers meant a dramatic increase in the software’s user base and a corresponding increase in the numbers of licences which made continuing with MS Project very expensive. It was also clear that switching to Asta Powerproject would provide huge advantages in functionality which would benefit both Beard’s construction and IT projects.
Teresa Braithwaite, Business Systems Manager at Beard said: “MS Project was becoming very expensive. We switched to Asta Powerproject not only because it would give us better functionality but because it would be far more cost effective.”
