The digital revolution is affecting every legacy industry and a host of new ones, and construction is no exception. Technologies like GPS tracking and the Internet of Things can keep your costs lower and your workers safer, and your employees and customers can benefit from a digitized workflow that will improve communication and collaboration.
we can do
ITMAGINATION has developed a Digital Construction strategy that’s based on our conviction that an innovation-driven IT organization can build bridges of knowledge that span technology gaps. Our experience shows that digitally reinvented products and tools like smart office buildings can take margins to previously unimagined levels. We’ve identified six key technologies that make Digital Construction a viable proposition:
- BIM 5D Systems Automation
- Mobility and Geolocation
- ERP for Construction
- Data Management
- The Internet of Things
- Dynamic Risk Management

Who are they?
Founded in 1887, Skanska is one of the world’s leading construction and project development companies. In 2014, the Financial Times described Skanska as aiming to be the “greenest contractor in the world” – while having 57,000 employees, 100,000 suppliers and 250,000 subcontractors, all of whom deliver more than 10,000 projects annually.
Skanska needed three things:
- A single project-oriented system that would cover all development processes
- The integration and automation of controlling, financial, business, and reporting processes
- A user-oriented solution that could support employees
We built KORAB, a Cloud-ready ERP system to support mobile applications that covered more than 2,500 business processes and integrated over 1,700 user interface screens. And we didn’t stop there, providing consulting, design, implementation, maintenance, and development services, plus ongoing maintenance.
Skanska immediately began to benefit from secure integration with banking systems as well as flexible document and workflow configuration. The capital group system was such a hit that it now operates in 4 countries for more than 60 legal entities and 3,500 users, maintaining over 1,500 projects.
