About KBD Group

Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, with offices in New Jersey, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Memphis, and Cincinnati, Kajima Building & Design Group (KBD Group) has designed and constructed quality projects throughout the U.S. since 1964. Their target markets include manufacturing, mission critical/ telecom, supply chain, and commercial and office corporate interiors.

Eliminated Double Entry

Instead of entering data into both their project management and accounting solutions, the team just had to enter information once, saving hours.

One Source of Truth

Having one system ensured all teams had up-to-the-minute information and could view changes in real time.

Streamlined Communication

With one integrated solution, project management and accounting teams could easily collaborate while also giving executives greater visibility into the project’s financial health at any moment.

"We no longer have to use two systems to do our owner changes because we can push info across both systems. The change order process in Procore is straightforward and simple, and it saves time because we have all our commitments and change orders in one place. It’s a pretty nice luxury to have."

Neil Lovelace, Technology Manager
KBD Group

The Challenge

KBD Group used Procore for project management and Viewpoint® Vista™ for accounting which meant the team had to double enter information, increasing the risk of human error and reducing productivity. Plus, users weren’t able to include all contracts and change orders when calculating costs, so executives didn’t have full visibility into the project’s financials. The team wanted to find a way to consolidate information without sacrificing the quality of either system.

The Solution

Integrated Solution

Using Procore and the integration, KBD got the best of both worlds: a top project management solution well liked by field teams and a leading accounting solution trusted by office teams.

One Consolidated System

Teams could easily sync all contracts and change orders (including prime contract, prime contract change orders, commitments, and commitment change orders) between Procore and Viewpoint® Vista™

Mobile Functionality

With Procore, collaborators could access important project information anytime, anywhere, ensuring greater communication and visibility across teams.

The Results

Utilizing the integration by Ryvit that connects Procore and Viewpoint® Vista™, KBD Group eliminated double entry, saving hours. In fact, Technology Manager Neil Lovelace estimates that this saved about 350 hours per year, or about $15,000. Plus, Procore’s intuitive interface made entering data easy which meant fewer errors, less rework, and faster turnaround. As a result, communication between project management and accounting was more efficient, and executive teams had better data for forecasting.

KBD Group also had the ability to manage all contracts and change orders right within Procore’s platform, meaning they could sync their prime contract and prime contract change orders between Procore and Viewpoint® Vista™. They had visibility into up-to-date budgets, commitments, and change orders anytime and anywhere—without worrying about limited bandwidth or spotty Internet connection.
