Consultancy

With You Every Step Of The Way

CCS track record, covering over 35 years, means that our people are experienced and knowledgeable in construction industry business solutions and processes.

This knowledge goes beyond CCS-specific offerings. We are well placed to help you plan the way forward in an industry where new technology and processes can bring real value, but where it can be challenging to choose the right approach in gaining these benefits.

CCS business consultants work with clients to assess current business opportunities and identify solutions processes. There are always options - we work with you to identify the most appropriate tools and techniques.

Using industry best practice, our advisors can recommend the most appropriate future model, build the business case, assess readiness and design a change program to support you in reducing the risk of the potential benefits not accruing.

Our team has extensive and wide knowledge having held management positions within the construction and service industries. Whatever your challenge, the CCS team delivers results by drawing on practical experience, lessons learned and industry best practice.

Business Intelligence

Information When You Need It

We understand that when it comes to construction, time is money. With so many moving parts to any project, it’s critical to have the right information at the right time to avoid missed opportunities and expensive mistakes. At CCS, we believe that good decisions are a result of experience as well as accurate and timely data, and our products provide you and your teams and stakeholders with just that, helping you stay one step ahead. Managed, developed and supported by over 100 experienced construction & engineering industry professionals worldwide, CCS is your partner when it comes to providing you with quality business intelligence.

Implementation

Implementing new systems into an organisation requires training, communication, buy-in from stakeholders, and the trust that the change will improve people’s lives. Due to the best-of-breed nature of Candy & BuildSmart, we employ an aggressive implementation programme, which reduces the time and cost of implementation. We will help you with this transition to ensure your teams can reap the benefits of the system as quickly as possible.

Round-The-Clock Expertise

The CCS teams set the standard when it comes to after-sales support and service. All support, training and implementation personnel are experienced construction industry professionals providing expert, 24/7 assistance and advice on the practical application of CCS in person, by email, telephone or remote services.

We understand the stress of meeting tight deadlines for either a tender, cost report or financial management report. The need for assistance can’t be scheduled and we at CCS recognise that, as our staff have been in the Users safety shoes, wearing a hard hat and wanting help NOW. Support is something we pride ourselves on, and our Users are testament to this. Interaction between Users and system designers is encouraged to ensure the solutions stay abreast of User requirements and developing industry trends.

The Client Area of this website provides a convenient central coordination point for customer support requests, access to important notices to our clients, release and software upgrade information and other relevant CCS documentation.
