In 2018, Ryan Hale, CIO at Lithko Contracting LLC, came to Penta Technologies, parent company of STRUXI, with a problem. Lithko, a customer of Penta, was using the Penta ERP in their construction business, but needed to find a solution that streamlined manual time collection and coding – one of the key problems plaguing the entire construction industry – all while integrating with the Penta ERP.
Lithko was prepared to look outside of Penta for this solution as it didn’t exist there, however, the Penta team quickly jumped at taking on this challenge and developed a mobile application to meet Lithko’s needs.
Penta’s development teams got to work and developed a beta software called the Labor Productivity Suite (LPS). Within months, LPS was implemented on Lithko job sites and integrated with the PENTA ERP.
