Construction Companies need the IT and Telecom Support from a trusted Technology partner. The construction industry is one of the most information-intensive industries, as a major construction process requires extensive exchange of data and information between the project’s participants on a regular basis. In the construction industry, employees must adopt new forms of technology to achieve the time, cost, and quality goals of a construction project. During the construction phases and the life-cycle of a building, the construction industry depends on large amounts of information. It’s important that the information provided to the construction site enables task control, data integration, material and resource control, and communication between the company and the suppliers. Time is of the essence in the construction industry. When contracts are on the line, you can’t afford to waste time with unreliable networks, incompatible software and employee communication breakdowns. That’s where Alpha Computer Group comes in. We know the technology tools that companies in the construction industry rely on every day. Let us manage your IT and Telecom so you can manage your business. We understand the challenges your company faces. Supervisors, estimators and your sales team need 24×7 access to their computer tools. CAD, estimating and other software must be properly integrated. Your network must maintain uptime. In short, we’ll work to eliminate the downtime that costs you time and money. Alpha Computer Group provides affordable, efficient solutions to meet your technology needs.
Here are some of the most accommodating forms of information technology for the construction industry:
• Cloud Computing
Cloud computing has a strong appeal in the construction industry, with many benefits due to the constant change of workers and setup of new job site locations. Often, construction workers require access to company data to provide timely decision-making and reporting ability while working in the field. Stay productive in the office and in the field.
Construction companies benefit from the cloud’s ability to offer increased freedom and easy access to information at any time, from any location, such as job sites, customer locations, and satellite offices.
• Project Management Software
Project management software allows contractors to manage complicated business processes with planning, organizing, and managing the various resource pools available. Construction companies are required to deliver projects on time and according to budget.
With project management software, the construction industry has the ability to execute projects more efficiently, while delivering high quality results and increasing their overall business profitability.
• Mobile Device Management
In the construction industry, employees use mobile devices as their main line of communication during a project. Whether it’s emails, texts, or phone calls; the smartphone has become the construction industries primary tool of communication.
With the ever-growing amount of mobile devices and applications, mobile device management is increasingly important. With mobile device management software, the construction industry can optimize the functionality of mobile devices, while protecting the configuration settings and data for mobile devices in a network; thus lowering the overall business security risks and support costs.
• Technical and Network Support
The construction business requires you to spend much (if not most) of your time away from your office. However, to stay productive while working on various job sites often means that you rely on the technology tools of your trade even more.
So what happens if your network goes down or your estimating software is suddenly out of service? That’s when you turn to Alpha Computer Group. We’ve spent the last 10 years helping construction; engineering and contracting firms implement and maintain technology systems that help their businesses run flawlessly, in the office and in the field.
• Remote office and project site connectivity

Having worked with businesses in the AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) industry for many years, we have hands on knowledge of the connectivity tools that will keep your office operating efficiently — tools that you can use from any location.
A strong, secure network is the backbone of any connectivity plan — after all, if your network is down or compromised, there’s no such thing as ‘business as usual.’ Our technical support team is dedicated to keeping your network working flawlessly, and to provide on-site or remote support should an issue ever arise.

• Sage Timberline Office and Star Builder
Considered “industry standards” in the construction world, Sage Timberline Office and Star Builder both combine many business functions — estimating, billing, procurement, and production management — into a streamlined view. But this integration offers a unique challenge: If something isn’t entered, coded or configured correctly, one mistake quickly travels through your entire system, creating disorder at every level of your organization.
