InEight: Transforming Construction Projects, Built with SAP

Bill Ponseti, President and CEO
The construction industry is pivotal to the infrastructural development of an economy. However, project-driven companies often lack technology tools that can connect and plan work processes, eliminate unnecessary costs, and prevent project delays. “Meticulous planning and the right technology provide the foundation for success of any construction project,” says Bill Ponseti, President and CEO, InEight.

Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, InEight is a technology company dedicated to helping customers improve cost certainty, visibility and operational control of projects across the construction, oil and gas, utilities and mining industries. InEight solutions help companies estimate, control and connect all aspects of their capital and maintenance projects, from the back office to the job¬site, across the project lifecycle. InEight is an SAP OEM partner and value-added reseller and recently won the 2015 SAP OEM Platform Innovation award.

InEight solutions include Hard Dollar Estimating and Control, the InfinyD visual platform, CREW solutions for SAP, and a full range of professional services that help customers achieve project success.

Most of the InEight solutions leverage SAP technology. For instance, built on SAP NetWeaver technology, CREW enables project-driven companies using SAP Business All-in-One determine true project costs, eliminate guesswork, and maximize profitability. In addition, CREW helps companies more quickly create new projects in SAP, improve subcontractor management, easily man¬age union payroll, enhance change management processes, and forecast labor requirements with more accuracy. It also serves as a fully-integrated platform that supports customer relations and improves visibility in business operations.

Another solution, InfinyD, consolidates proprietary 3D design models into an open platform that can be leveraged across the project lifecycle. The InfinyD platform can be enriched with data from cost, schedule, and other project systems, while key processes, such as procurement, can be optimized for time and cost savings.
With InfinyD, the entire construction team can visualize successful project outcomes. InfinyD is built on the SAP 3D Visual Enterprise platform.

Built on the SAP Mobile Platform (SMP), the HD Field solution also utilizes SAP technology. The HD Field solution delivers project execution visibility by connecting jobsite labor and equipment actuals to the Hard Dollar suite via a mobile interface. With a simple Android, Apple iOS, or Windows Surface tablet, foremen can plan work and then collect daily jobsite activity. This provides managers with the visibility they need to avoid surprises and keep projects moving forward.


Through continued collaboration with SAP, InEight is set to transform today’s capital project solutions into tomorrow’s industry standard


In January 2015, InEight was recognized for innovation, leadership, and commitment when it received the SAP North America Partner Excellence Award 2015 in the category “OEM Platform Innovation”.

“Through continued collaboration with SAP, InEight is set to transform today’s capital project solutions into tomorrow’s industry standard.” said Bill Ponseti. Through its partnerships with SAP and strategic technology platforms, InEight delivers powerful business solutions for the entire capital project lifecycle. InEight’s connected solution suite—built on SAP BusinessObjects™ business intelligence solutions, SAP mobile solutions and SAP 3D Visual Enterprise applications—narrows the gap between project expectations and outcomes. The innovations InEight has developed using SAP technology are driving customers to realize improved project certainty and reduced project risk.
