National tax, accounting and advisory firm Smith and Howard
supports ProNovos mission of bringing data-driven solutions to
construction contractors nationwide
ATLANTA, Aug. 13,
2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Construction analytics
provider ProNovos and tax, accounting and advisory firm Smith +
Howard are joining forces to better serve contractors.
In a strategic agreement signed earlier this month by the
Atlanta-based firms, contractors
that rely on Smith and Howard for accounting, audit, tax and other
services will gain easy access to technology and analytics
solutions provided by ProNovos. Smith and Howard will invest in the
startup and support its mission of improving contractor performance
through the power of data.
Smith and Howard Managing Partner Sean
C. Taylor said the automated reports and dashboards created
by ProNovos are right in line with a central focus of his firm's
construction group—analyzing contractors' problems and crafting
strategies that take them where they want to go.
"Our clients are already high performers, but they are always
striving to do even better," Taylor said. "The tools ProNovos has
developed for construction contractors can help them elevate their
game. We're excited about this strategic relationship and believe
our clients will be as well."
Tracking and analyzing performance has always been a best
practice in construction, but pressures such as inflation, the
supply-chain crunch and the workforce shortage make efficiency
especially important today, added Bruce
Orr, founder and Chief Data Scientist of ProNovos. His
company has spent years working closely with hundreds of
construction contractors to build data-driven solutions to meet
their complex needs.
Earlier this year, ProNovos debuted its Analytics Marketplace—a
solutions hub packed with plug-and-play apps for contractors. The
list includes executive and WIP dashboards as well as
reports/analytics in areas such as labor hours, sales, billings,
change orders, projected final cost, AP/AR and more.
Smith and Howard boasts more than 50 years of experience in
serving the needs of construction clients in good times and bad. In
addition to its accounting, audit and tax services for contractors,
the award-winning firm assists clients with tax-minimization,
process and control improvement, KPIs, incentive compensation
plans, succession planning and enterprise risk security.
"Smith and Howard understands the power of measurement—looking
carefully at both your present trends and past projects to bolster
performance and gain new insights," Orr said. "And like us, they
see data as the future of the industry, which is why this strategic
alignment is such a strong fit. We can't wait to start getting
results for our mutual customers."
