ERMCO, Inc. selects Explorer’s Contract Manager V7
Top 50 electrical contractor, ERMCO, Inc. embraces innovative new technology with Explorer Software’s CM7
Based in Indiana, ERMCO is one of the country’s 50 largest electrical contractors, with revenues in excess of $100M. The company is one of the region’s go-to contractors for high profile projects, including Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis International Airport, and Eskenazi Health Hospital, a $620M facility slated for completion this year. Working with various other contractors, ERMCO has also completed projects nationwide, including Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals, Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and a new 18,000-seat stadium for Major League Soccer’s San Jose Earthquakes. They were recently named Specialty Contractor of the Year by ENR Midwest, for excellence in innovation, safety, community involvement and their work on the Eskenazi Health Hospital project.
ERMCO has been a long time user of Explorer’s TCMS solution, a legacy product that Explorer acquired from Ferrell Companies in 2005 and continues to maintain today. "We never end-of-life our legacy products, so our contractors can choose to upgrade when they’re ready," explains Jim McFarlane, President & CEO of Explorer Software. For ERMCO, that time came this year.
Rod Burton, CFO for ERMCO, Inc. describes the reasons for the upgrade, citing new technology and an integrated Project Management module as key factors. "Contract Manager is on a different playing field than the other products we looked at. Explorer has really taken Version 7 to the next level, incorporating impressive new features that will not only make our lives easier, but help us achieve the results we’re looking for."
"We are delighted that ERMCO has selected Contract Manager as their accounting and project management solution," says Explorer’s President and CEO, Jim McFarlane. "Many of the new features in Version 7 are the direct result of client requests. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Together with our clients, we solve the everyday challenges contractors like ERMCO face."
