Germany’s largest family-owned construction business chooses Board decision-making platform for  flexible implementation  and autonomous  development

Board International, the number one Decision-Making Platform provider, announced today that the construction and service company Goldbeck, which is known throughout Europe for modular construction systems , selected Board as a comprehensive planning platform.  

"It is important for  us to drive digitization across all areas of the company, and Board is an important building block for  this. The Board platform helps us to plan flexibly, effectively and from any location. At the same time, we avoid disruptions thanks to the interfaces to data sources, within Board and keep all important information in one system,” explains Stephan Ruhmann, Head of Controlling at Goldbeck. “The coaching approach that Board offers is perfect for us. We’ve learnt how to use and design Board applications ourselves from scratch and can develop and adapt the system independently moving forward," continues Ruhmann.  

The high level of user-friendliness and intuitive user guidance through a flexibly adaptable workflow makes Board an ideal platform for integrating all Goldbeck’s user groups from management to employees on the construction site. The design of user interfaces (UI) ensures a positive user experience (UX) throughout. The graphical representation of important key performance indicators (KPIs) allows users to understand progress against KPIs quickly. 

Goldbeck is planning to progress the usage of Board over various stages, starting with personnel and overhead cost planning. In addition, project planning and strategic three-year planning are on the priority list of the family-owned company. Later, deployment within plant planning is also an option for Goldbeck’s use of the platform.  

"With Goldbeck, we have gained an important and future-oriented company from the construction and real estate sector. We are proud they selected Board due to the advantages of our integrated planning capabilities,” said Ansgar Eickeler, General Manager Central & Eastern Europe at Board International. “We focus very much on the user-friendliness and flexibility of our platform, to lead the digital transformation of major industries, and support companies to plan smarter and drive better business outcomes,” continued Eickeler.
