AHT Cooling Systems USA has plans to support regional and national grocery and convenience clients, and to do this, they chose to partner with Projectmates, an award-winning Construction Program Management Software, to help AHT Cooling Systems USA manage its commercial and retail installation of their proprietary refrigeration systems.
Projectmates is the most comprehensive construction project management software available today, providing an easy-to-use native app and a web-based interface for efficient management of construction projects from design through completion.
One key feature to selecting Projectmates was the rapid implementation in under 30 days, vastly undercutting the average industry standard for 3-6 months. By offering a quick implementation, AHT Cooling Systems USA will see an immediate return on investment.
When asked what the deciding factor for selecting Projectmates was, Jon Nixon, the Director of Store Planning, stated that, “Projectmates provides us a central, collaborative platform to connect our different teams to ensure our projects go smoothly and remove the need for manual tracking of spreadsheets.”
The speed at which Projectmates implementation went is in large part due to the expert team that utilizes a future-proof process. Throughout the early stages, the Projectmates implementation team meets with the principal department’s core personnel to communicate the plan, needs, and review configuration and project progress. Shortly after an onsite “Proof of Concept” meeting, AHT Cooling Systems went “live” in Projectmates. Due to Projectmates intuitive design, AHT cooling systems was quickly able to roll out Projectmates to the entire project team with minimal training.
Now, AHT Cooling can connect sales, warehouse, installation, and service teams for managing their different projects. Based on the experience of the US implementation, AHT Cooling is now exploring potentials for expanding Projectmates use for their global group in Europe.
Projectmates offers many key features, including a centralized document manager, bidding system, integration with external financial software, contract manager, scheduling, task management and more. Projectmates owner focused Construction Program Management Software provides automatic routing and tracking tools, allowing project executives to concentrate on the project and not the paper.
“We are excited to work with AHT Cooling Systems USA and help them to create more efficiencies for their work process. Projectmates was made specifically to help address modern construction management issues as well as being quick and efficient to get up and running.” – Hemant Bhave, AIA, Vice President at Projectmates.
