Project Management Challenges
Tracking the different documents required on a job (RFIs, submittals, meeting minutes, and field reports, etc.) individually, in excel and word, is tedious and doesn’t provide management adequate visibility into the project.
Provide the project manager’s with their respective up-to-date project costs, to enable them to better project what their cost to complete is going to be, for each of their tasks for their jobs. This provides management the ability to generate more meaningful reports and better visibility into a project’s status.
Managing Subcontracts (contract values, scope, retain-age, insurance requirements, invoices, dates, payments, etc.) is all consuming and difficult to stay on top of.
Provide a centralized Subcontractor Management and Compliance system that takes all the guess work and mitigates a lot of the risks of managing subcontractors.
To forecast where the job will end up is impossible. Without getting up to date costs from accounting, and getting updated cost to complete from the project managers, I have no chance of providing management effective, and meaningful reports, as to how our jobs are doing.
Provide project managers with their respective, up-to-date project costs, to enable them to better forecast what their cost to complete is going to be. This provides management the ability to generate more meaningful reports, and better visibility into a project’s status.
Our change requests and change order management is challenging, and we continually miss opportunities to bill for work that we have performed because it wasn’t documented properly.
Document a change in scope immediately, and track its progression through its cycle. Whether it is internal or external it will be tracked. By tracking it, you can create the subcontract change orders automatically from the owner approved change orders, saving you time and increasing accuracy.
