Building Success: Insoftive's Custom ERP Solution Enhances Efficiency at Cross Design

Industry: Engineering and Architecture


Cross Design, a reputable structural engineering company based in Romania, has been at the forefront of delivering innovative and sustainable engineering solutions since its establishment in 2009. As the company continued to grow and take on more complex projects, they faced challenges in managing their operations efficiently. To address these issues and streamline their business processes, Cross Design partnered with Insoftive to develop and implement a comprehensive ERP solution.

The Challenge

Cross Design encountered several challenges in their day-to-day operations:

Disparate Systems:

  • The company was using multiple disconnected software tools for project management, financial control, HR management, and analytics. This resulted in data silos, lack of real-time visibility, and increased manual effort in consolidating information.

Inefficient Project Management:

  • Allocating the right team members to projects and monitoring their productivity proved to be challenging, leading to potential delays and resource mismanagement.

Limited Financial Control:

  • Cross Design faced difficulties in managing their finances effectively, tracking project costs, and ensuring optimal treasury control.

Inadequate HR Management:

  • The HR processes were time-consuming, and there was a lack of a centralized system for employee data, performance evaluations, and workforce planning.

Lack of Comprehensive Analytics:

  • The absence of advanced analytics tools made it challenging for management to gain quick insights into various departments' performance and make data-driven decisions.

Insoftive's Solution

Insoftive collaborated closely with Cross Design's team to design and develop a customized ERP solution that addressed their specific requirements. The key functionalities of the ERP system included:

Project Management with Advanced Team Allocation:

  • The ERP solution incorporated a project management module that allowed Cross Design's project managers to create, monitor, and track project timelines, milestones, and deliverables. Advanced team allocation tools facilitated the efficient assignment of resources based on skills, availability, and project requirements, ensuring optimal utilization of talent.

Clocking Tools for Productivity and Efficiency:

  • To enhance productivity and efficiency across all projects, Insoftive implemented clocking tools within the ERP system. Employees could log their work hours, and real-time data provided insights into project progress and resource allocation.

Financial Management and Treasury Control:

  • The ERP solution integrated robust financial management capabilities, enabling Cross Design to manage budgets, expenses, and invoicing efficiently. The treasury control module facilitated cash flow management, ensuring financial stability and liquidity.

Clients and Contracts Management:

  • The ERP system offered a centralized repository for client information and contract details, streamlining communication and facilitating effective client relationship management.

HR Management:

  • With the HR management module, Cross Design gained access to employee records, performance evaluations, training needs, and attendance data. This centralized system simplified HR processes and enhanced workforce planning.

Advanced Analytics:

  • The ERP solution incorporated advanced analytics tools that provided management with a comprehensive overview of all company departments. Real-time data visualization and reports enabled quick decision-making and performance evaluation.

The implementation of Insoftive's ERP solution brought significant benefits to Cross Design:

Improved Efficiency:

  • The ERP system streamlined business processes, reducing manual effort, and improving overall operational efficiency.

Enhanced Project Management:

  • With advanced team allocation and clocking tools, Cross Design achieved better project planning and resource utilization, leading to timely project deliveries.

Insoftive's ERP solution successfully transformed Cross Design's operations, empowering the company to manage projects, finances, HR, and client relationships more efficiently. With a centralized system in place, Cross Design achieved better collaboration, improved productivity, and enhanced overall performance. The ERP solution enabled Cross Design to continue delivering high-quality structural engineering solutions, maintaining its position as a leader in the industry.

Using Insoftive solutions, we managed to centralize all the essential information for company management in one place. Accruals, current and project-based expenses, contracts, invoices, receipts, clients, investment budgets, all this information together generates a clear picture of the current situation and forecasts for the future.

For me, all this information is essential in the decision-making process. A very important thing is the possibility of customizing the system according to the needs of the company and the users. In this chapter, I have not yet found a requirement that the people from Insoftive cannot implement. I highly recommend their services.
