The Results

The adoption of Archdesk heralded a new era for CDC:

  • Centralized data leading to enhanced project and financial management.
  • Advanced procurement tracking and dashboard enhancements.
  • Holistic financial management, reducing data loss and refining access.
  • Integration with third-party applications for a holistic management experience.

Project Management

By managing projects in Archdesk ERP they gained full control over all projects (of all subsidiary companies) in one place. What it means is that the admins are able to manage all the companies easily and have all data in one place. Dividing the accounts allowed to add different employee groups to separate accounts at the same time managing all financial matters from one place.

Financial Management

Having all documents and all processes tracked within one software made it easier to manage all activities connected to procurement, quotations, valuations and invoicing. There is no possibility of losing data anymore, and access is granted based on responsibilities inside the company.

Budget tracking

The crucial part was setting up specific dashboards that allowed to analyse data much faster and easier. It became possible to better control planning, the budget spends and reporting.


An important factor of implementation was to integrate with external software f.ex. Accounting software Xero. This gave the opportunity to control even a bigger part of operations from one central place, making it easier to manage.


Key Achievements

  1. Creation of a scalable, structured system
  2. 10% growth within 12 months post-implementation
  3. 30% reduction in human error through tailored processes
  4. Centralized operations for all linked companies

Pioneering Building Designs

The newfound management efficiency bestowed CDC with the luxury of time, allowing them to innovate and realize industry-leading projects, illustrating the unparalleled heights achievable through the seamless operations enabled by Archdesk.
