GBQ is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with Atlanta-based construction analytics provider ProNovos, designed to bring advanced technology and analytics solutions to contractors across Ohio and the Midwest.

GBQ’s Construction Industry Services team has built a solid practice of leaning into the industry’s unique challenges and offering creative solutions. The introduction of automated reports and dashboards powered by ProNovos serves as an extension of the team’s commitment to empowering growth.

“While contractors across Ohio and the Midwest have eagerly embraced digital project-management tools, many could benefit by exploring analytics in greater depth,” shared Bob Biehl, Director of Construction Industry Services at GBQ. “Our clients’ controllers and other financial decision-makers are increasingly interested in gleaning more insights from their data, all in one place.”

Bruce Orr, ProNovos founder and Chief Data Scientist added, “These tools will be tremendously useful to contractors that already benefit from GBQ’s experience on the leading edge of professional tax and accounting practices in construction. We’re honored that GBQ is supporting our mission as evangelists, so to speak, for construction data.”

In addition to expanding its service offerings, GBQ will invest in ProNovos to further support the startup’s mission of improving contractor performance through the power of data. 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.

Since 1953, GBQ has empowered growth of the construction industry through consulting, business valuation, information technology and accounting compliance services. “The bottom line is that having more information helps contractors make better decisions. At GBQ, empowering growth of our clients’ businesses is a top priority, so we’re excited about this partnership,” added Biehl.
