SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Computer Guidance Corp., a developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for the construction industry, announced that Ivey Mechanical Inc., a customer of Computer Guidance since 1990, has successfully gone live with the company’s latest ERP solution — eCMS v.4.0.

The ERP deployment was a collaborative effort between the two organizations involving 11 company locations, many specialized custom programs, over 60 concurrent users, and an extensive set of eCMS applications.

Ivey Mechanical, founded in 1947, offers HVAC, plumbing, fabrication, building information modeling (BIM), and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) capabilities to its customers across the southeastern United States.

We are pleased with the eCMS v.4.0 implementation and now we look forward to taking advantage of the new features and functionalities that eCMS v.4.0 has to offer.”
