(Denver, CO, 09/23/21) – Today, Assignar is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with Aktion Associates, Inc., a national software reseller and IT infrastructure provider focused on the Architectural Engineering & Construction, Distribution and Manufacturing industries.
The collaboration is based around Assignar’s integration initiatives with Acumatica and Sage 300 CRE, key accounting and ERP tools in the construction space. These integrations and strategic partnership bring contractors much-needed integration between the office and field operations for resource scheduling, timesheets, field data and more.
“Together Assignar and Aktion bring to market next-generation software solutions by combining construction field operations, such as scheduling and real-time data collection, and integrated workflows into ERP solutions. This enhances the value of these investments, allowing clients to optimize the operation of expensive equipment and resources, bill for completed work quickly, and get paid faster for that work.” Darren Metherell, Global Head of Strategic Partnerships
“Assignar’s integration with Sage 300 CRE will give customers a more complete view of their business,” said Steve Handly, Vice President Construction Division at Aktion Associates. “Assignar developed efficient and accurate workflows between the office and field. This is a game-changer for contractors using Sage 300 CRE.”
“The integration between Assignar and Acumatica is seamless,” said Bob Black, Aktion’s Vice President Multi-Industry Division. “For our Acumatica customers, they are making real-time, informed decisions from the office using field-collected data from the Assignar platform and mobile app,” Bob added.
Founded in 2014 by Sean McCreanor and Marko Tomic, Assignar is a cloud-based construction operations platform that helps self-perform general and subcontractors improve productivity and operations, such as labor, crew and equipment management, resource-loaded scheduling, field data, timesheets and more. The company was born out of Sean’s construction business while he was trying to solve problems of scale related to the office and the field. Assignar works with hundreds of customers, ranging from multinational, multi-billion dollar companies to specialist contractors with as few as five crews. Assignar’s customers operate in infrastructure, road, rail, civil, utilities and other construction disciplines. The company has offices in Denver, Colorado and Sydney, Australia and is backed by Fifth Wall, Ironspring Ventures, Our Innovation Fund (OIF) and Tola Capital.
