The State of Idaho wanted a robust and proven construction management software that could replace the Division of Public Works outdated financial system as well as provide project management tools for document management, scheduling, and collaboration with state agencies, design professionals, and contractors for hundreds of projects. Projectmates improves technology and efficiency directly related to the capital construction and management of government and commercial projects. Increasing the access State of Idaho has to a digital workplace will greatly enhance autonomy and productivity for Idaho state agencies.
After a rigorous RFP and evaluation process, the state chose Projectmates over other vendors because of its collaborative features, fund tracking capabilities, and ease of use. Projectmates’ smart government technology features mobile access, fund management, easy communication, and quick implementation. These factors set Projectmates above the competition.
Projectmates implementation takes months, not years, because the software was designed and created by experienced capital planners, architects, and construction professionals directly for the capital construction industry. Projectmates offers over 40 out-of-the-box modules and can be quickly set up and specialized with customized workflows specific to the State’s needs.
Projectmates also offers the only mobile app in the market with push notifications and instant messaging discussion forums that can be both team and project wide. This facilitates collaboration for project managers to work on the go and collaborate statewide.
Approvals between the Division of Public Works and a state agency will be much easier with Projectmates. Many of the project managers are constantly on the road since they work on projects across the state. Before Projectmates, a project manager would have to email a coordinator in the office to print paperwork and then walk it around the office for signature. Then the coordinator would have to scan and send it back to the project manager to forward to the agency. Now all this will happen electronically through automated electronic workflows.
“Mobility is critical, and that is what we aim to deliver for our clients. We are proud to work with the State of Idaho to help increase smart government and paperless technology,” stated Kaely Culbertson, Systemates Director of Client Services.
