Digitising your operations and using our Construction Management software platform will save you and each member of your organisation hours every week. This is achieved by eliminating paperwork, automating repetitive tasks and using the cloud to bridge the physical gap between remotely located sites and head office, allowing staff to get the information they need to make important decisions at the touch of a button from any location.
On-site observations have demonstrated average time savings each week for site management team members of up to 4.5 hours. Remember, these site management team members are the key personnel you've chosen to drive, manage and supervise not only the budget, progress and quality of your projects but also the welfare and safety of your operatives and subcontractors.
I think you'll agree that the time you and your staff save using our construction apps could be used to improve other aspects of your business.
In a low margin industry such as construction it's important to improve efficiency and save money at every opportunity. However, the savings offered through the use of our construction software go well beyond the savings you make on reducing your use of consumables like paper or printer ink.
Incorporating our construction apps into your site management operations will allow you to leverage the power of the cloud to monitor, record and analyse the on-site performance of your subcontractors on a project per project basis. What this means for you is that you'll be better informed to determine who is under or over-performing through reports that can be produced at the touch of a button. For example, our digital construction software will allow you to answer questions like; did the rework involved in using that particularly cheap subcontractor make their appointment a mistake or was it worthwhile in the end?
Knowing and understanding the performance of subcontractors whom you award work worth large sums means that the potential savings can be in the tens of thousands; maybe even more?
Whilst construction is a mature industry (we have been building structures for millenia afterall), it remains a risky industry in which to work and do business, not only in health and safety terms but also contractually. The risk of injury and/or litigation makes the importance of adequate compliance frameworks and processes clear; no one should be getting hurt on a modern construction site and you do not want to get embroiled in any legal proceedings as a result of a flawed contract or poor handover. Not only will it cost you significant sums financially but the loss of reputation for winning public contracts can be terminal.
Through the use of our mobile apps and our flexible compliance framework we can make health and safety, quality assurance and financial compliance a breeze; improving the rate and quality of your compliance activities and reducing the potential for injury and litigation.
In addition, using our mobile forms for tasks such as to secure the handover of elements from one party to another or to record/issue on-site instructions will negate the risk of potential disputes arising with clients and subcontractors. The end result of this is clear; should you enter into dispute with any party, correct use of our site management software, will leave you in a much better position to reach a result or settlement in your favour.
Make Better Decisions
Having key information at your finger tips is crucial to making good decisions. Our mobile and web apps for construction allow you to access and undertake work from any location. Whether it's wanting to quickly check a site plan or drawing for a particular reduced level or you want to check the site induction register to see if a particular operative has been correctly inducted or not; all of these and more can be done with a few taps of the touchscreen.
Using our construction software allows for the quick and easy production of reports with key metrics included. This allows you greater understanding of the performance of your projects, allowing you to improve the management and efficiency of precious resources across your organisation. Allowing you to get more done with less.
As a leader in your organisation its crucial you remain informed and maintain total oversight of the actions being taken by your employees, especially on high value or complex projects. Use of our construction site management software means all actions are recorded, form revisions automatically managed by the platform and quickly auditable.
This not only saves you time on tedious tasks such as document management but it gives you the ability to determine whether particular areas of your business are being neglected. For example, no one wants to find out that health and safety compliance is suffering on a particular project through an incident or accident occurring when it could easily have been identified through an off-site audit. This has the benefit of your organisation being able to remotely audit the performance of a particular project and staff without distracting them from their day to day activities.
Condidence in Security
Setting up, maintaining and de-mobilising a site can be a lengthy and time-consuming process. Couple that with the requirement to store your project data means that the use of a construction software platform like ProProject and the cloud is a no-brainer as all your company's data remains securely stored in the cloud and is easily accessible at any time from any location.
Our commitment to security goes further than data storage through the use of a permissions system that allows company admins to restrict the access of staff not only to the platform itself but also particular types of data, apps, projects and even down to the granular level of individual forms. For example, a company admin can quickly revoke access to the platform to any employee who leaves your organisation or they can create a permissions template for a particular type of employee, e.g. foremen that restricts their access or ability to edit particular mobile forms such as Site Instructions or Variation Orders. We've built the flexibility into the platform so you keep using the same processes as before but just with a new medium; technology instead of paper.
