A Better Way to Manage Capital Construction in 2017

A Better Way to Manage Capital Construction in 2017

We all know that software should be easy to use and intuitive, but the majority of solutions available today come with a steep learning curve and a glossary of new definitions to learn.

The goal for Projectmates is to be both intuitive and a platform you are already familiar with. Add to that the mobility aspect and availability on phones and tablets and you have a quick and easy solution to manage your capital projects as well as streamlining your cloud based project management software.

Some quick points I would like to touch on for usability with Projectmates is the customizable dashboards and ad-hoc reports:

  • Drag and drop functionality that allows you to view quarterly or annual reports
  • Project snapshots that show the health & status
  • Business intelligence updates to ensure projects are aligned with core goals

"The reporting function was a big challenge that we overcame with Projectmates. There are a lot of executives and different leaders who rely on the weekly report that is automatically sent out. It's become a part of the way we do things."
— Tova Vance, Construction & Design Manager with U.S. Cellular.

The second feature to look for when finding a better way to manage construction is to look at bid management. Gone are the days of having to sort, classify, level and compare bids from separate entities. With Projectmates, the bids are simple with line items and a 4 step process to publish bids.

"When it comes to taking care of paperwork, approvals and sign-offs on an awarded bid, what use to take a 2-week time frame can now be done within 24 hours with Projectmates." — Dave Major, Senior Project Manager of Reading Hospital.

The third innovation created by Projectmates is the easy ability to make schedules. Project managers can create different schedules for the various aspects of their projects. Projectmates gives you the ability to manage multiple schedules, decreasing the need to have one massively cumbersome plan and instead lets you choose to have smaller, bite-size schedules that are easy to navigate.
