1.0 Introduction Service Construction, Inc. is in a state of transition and is looking to expand its market focus from commercial office and warehouse space construction projects to higher margin industrial construction projects. Currently, staff at Service Construction, Inc. utilizes a ten year old enterprise management system, Pinnacle Business Systems (PBS), to process its data operations and to make decisions for its customers’ project needs. It has become challenging to retrieve timely and relevant information with the current system. Significant time is spent offsite at the customer’s location which requires a stable infrastructure for remote access capability. With the growth of the internet as a medium for exposure and accessibility, Service Construction, Inc. recognizes that having a web presence is critical to enhancing its competitive edge. Hence, lack of critical timely information, accessibility, and inflexibility with the system has the potential to result in decreased customer loyalty, credibility, and profitability for Service Construction, Inc. Senior Management at Service Construction, Inc. has a business requirement for the delivery of a implementation plan that provides for a recommendation for the right Enterprise Information System that meets its specifications and infrastructure needs, a company website setup, and remote accessibility setup. Team-A can bring its knowledge of the construction industry, information technology, combined with expertise in project management methodology, particularly assessment, planning, implementation capabilities insights to address Service Construction Inc.’s needs. We can demonstrate through sharing past successes with similarities to the client that we understand its challenges and has the right skills set and experience to aid in achieving its objectives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
