Project Management Challenges

CHALLENGE
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.

SOLUTION
Provide the project manager’s with their respective, up-to-date project costs, to enable them to better forecast what their cost to complete is going to be for each job. This provides management the ability to generate more meaningful reports, and to have better visibility into a project’s status.

CHALLENGE
Managing subcontracts (contract values, scope, retain-age, insurance requirements, invoices, dates, payments, etc.) is all consuming, and difficult to stay on top of.

SOLUTION
Provide a centralized subcontractor, management and compliance system, that removes all the guess work and mitigates a lot of the risks of managing subcontractors.

CHALLENGE
To forecast where a 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.

SOLUTION
Provide project managers with their respective, up-to-date project costs, to enable them to better forecast what their cost to complete is for each job. This provides management the ability to generate more meaningful reports, and to have better visibility into a project’s status.

CHALLENGE
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.

SOLUTION
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.
