Utility of MAPREX for Civil Construction

The challenge of a professional in the area of ​​civil works and infrastructure, requires the management of software and computer tools for the proper processing of information, calculation, monitoring of works and to generate results of field work. This is what we call the Control of Works. The costs and budgets associated with the work determine the correct use of resources, as well as the successful administrative process that can lead the framework of the construction process to a happy term. Ensuring the economy by the company and the minimum generation of capital losses.

With the help of MAPREX We can achieve a satisfactory user experience because it is a system that meets all the necessary characteristics to process data and deliver reliable results. The activities developed in the work should be grouped into items. Likewise, the items contain the subgroups: supplies (materials), equipment and workforce. In this way the engineer can control each of the aspects of the work, related to computable quantities and updated prices according to the indices that the market manages.
