Cruickshank Construction Limited (www.crucon.ca) is a progressive road builder and aggregate producer based in south-eastern Ontario. The family owned business, founded by Les Cruickshank in 1956, continues operations under the guidance of son Steve, company president since 1999. The company motto is “we do our level best” and its business is focused on road construction, highway maintenance, construction materials, ready mix concrete, asphalt and aggregates.
With continued growth in business volumes, Cruickshank recognizes a strong need for an integrated ERP system to support the management of its large construction projects / contracts. The company also requires improved information system support for maintaining its fleet of heavy equipment and managing its quarries. Moreover, Cruickshank wants an HR system, integrated with its ERP system and providing a particular focus on qualifications and certifications.
To this end, Cruickshank chose SAP® Business All-in-One as its business management software platform and Illumiti as their implementation partner. Monika St. Louis, Cruickshank’s CFO, said: “The decision was easy – SAP has all of the functionality to accommodate our existing business and future growth. Illumiti was very knowledgeable and professional; we are excited to be dealing with a Canadian based systems integration and management consultant.” Illumiti will implement SAP® Business All-in-One to support a broad range of business functions, including Finance, Sales, Job/Project Costing, Production, Maintenance, Procurement, Inventory Management, HR and Payroll. The first phase is planned to go live within approximately 3 months.
