Sunstruct modernising their construction industry software
Sunstruct modernising their Construction industry software.
The team at Sunstruct identified the need to update their construction management tools and after exploring several options landed on Procore as the best suited package to meet their requirements.
With change comes challenges and Lorenzo and the team realised the best way forward for their admin team was an integration between Procore and their preferred accounting package Xero, enabling the business to save both time and money by stopping data double entry, reducing manual errors and enabling comparable reporting between the two systems.
After some research and assistance from the Procore team, Sunstruct reached out to Glen and the team at Smoothlink to bridge the gap. Smoothlink’s integration was initially custom built as a solution for a large Queensland construction company who in the past had struggled to find the right integration fit for their growing business, comparable to where Sunstruct now found the business themselves.
The Smoothlink integration allows a live two-way synchronisation of all financials between the two platforms, along with Contacts, Cost Codes, and Cost Types. Financial synchronisation includes attachments and proactively reduces human error.
A proactive onboarding process with Smoothlink, including a setup and mapping meeting allowed Sunstruct to quickly bring both Procore and Xero implementation together with minimal disruption to day to day operational requirements of the business.
“Without Smoothlink’s integration between Procore and Xero we would have not adopted Procore.” Lorenzo Reginato, Director
With innovation as the driving force of Smoothlink, their integration has become a key solution for Sunstruct bridging the gap between Procore and Xero. The accuracy of financial data is critical to any business and the information unification between Procore and Xero, covering Head Contract & Commitment Progress Claims along with Direct Costs ensures real time financial reporting for all projects.
