Operating a construction business can leave you feeling overwhelmed with paperwork and the need to keep tight track of costs. With the right construction company software, however, you can streamline operations and save both time and money. Learn about the essential features to look for when choosing software for your business.
Estimating and Budgeting
Estimating and budgeting for your projects is a critical part of construction company management software. We can build customized software that offers automated estimating tools, such as bill of materials (BOM) functionality and budget comparison reports. The ability to create accurate estimates quickly and easily can help you remain competitive in the market, while still ensuring profitability.
Project management capabilities are essential for construction company management software. Look for features such as Gantt charts, scheduling tools, resource planning, and project tracking capabilities. These features should allow you to easily monitor and manage projects from start to finish, track costs associated with each job, and ensure that materials are delivered on time. Being able to keep tabs on multiple projects at once can save your business both time and money.
Scheduling and Resource Planning
Scheduling or Resource Planning is a must-have feature as it helps to visualize the use of resources needed for each project, ensuring that each job can be completed on time. Resource planning also allows for efficient allocation of tasks with availability monitoring so you know where and when your employees, subcontractors, and third-party suppliers
are at all times. With this information in tow your business can stay organized and ensure everyone involved is up-to-date on projects from start to finish.
Document Management simplifies how construction companies manage documents and store all the essential data associated with a project. This feature ensures that documents are easily retrievable, and accessible from cloud-based access, so that everyone working on the project can keep up with changes in plans or specs as they occur. Contractors also no longer need to search through various document versions as all files are organized into a user-friendly navigation system.
Time tracking is another essential feature of construction management software. Project managers should be able to quickly and easily view time cards compiled by each team member, keeping everyone on the same page when it comes to completing projects in a timely manner. That way, no hours are wasted and allowed to go unrecorded as contractors can log their own hours at once without having to rely on a manager or other team members for input. This data can also help to inform where teams need to focus their energy so that projects stay on track.
