ERP is dead – how the AEC design industry will flourish anyway


Your architecture and design business runs on digital technology. That’s just how it is now. Whether it’s CAD drawing files, accounting with Xero or QuickBooks Online or marking up PDFs with Bullclip. When you’re designing, invoicing, communicating with clients or collaborating on projects, it all happens digitally.

ERP (enterprise resource planning) software is how all this used to be managed and automated.

ERP is dead, design friends.

You need to know that to keep your architecture in the now and to help it burst into the future.
