Construction analytics provider ProNovos and tax, accounting and consulting firm Smith + Howard are joining forces to better serve contractors.

In a strategic agreement signed earlier this month by the Atlanta-based companies, entrepreneurs who rely on Smith and Howard for accounting, auditing, tax and other services will have easy access to technology solutions and analytics provided by ProNovos. Smith and Howard will invest in the startup and support its mission to improve contractor performance through the power of data.

Sean C. Taylor, managing partner of Smith and Howard, said the automated reports and dashboards created by ProNovos are a perfect fit with his company’s building group’s central goal: to analyze entrepreneur problems and develop strategies that take them where they want to go.

“Our customers are already high performers, but they’re always striving to do even better,” Taylor said. “The tools ProNovos has developed for construction contractors can help them raise their game. We are excited about this strategic relationship and believe our customers will be too.

Tracking and analyzing performance has always been a best practice in construction, but pressures such as inflation, supply chain crisis and labor shortages 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 create data-driven solutions to meet their complex needs.

Earlier this year, ProNovos launched its Analytics Marketplace, a solutions hub filled with plug-and-play apps for entrepreneurs. The list includes executive and WIP dashboards as well as reports/analysis in areas such as labor hours, sales, invoicing, change orders, projected final cost, AP/AR and more.

In addition to its accounting, auditing and tax services for entrepreneurs, the award-winning firm assists clients with tax reduction, improved processes and controls, key performance indicators, incentive compensation plans , succession planning and enterprise risk security.

“Smith and Howard understand the power of measurement — carefully examining both your current trends and your past plans to boost 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 so strong. We can’t wait to start delivering results for our mutual customers.
