The recommendations are in line with Beca's business and IT strategies, and aim to eliminate or reduce the issues that are currently present. They aim to achieve a consolidated, consistent and valuable software solution for Beca. This move into more advanced technology, increasing efficiency and effectiveness of their operations, as well as being an adaptable and scalable application for future growth of the company.
