Up until all hours of the night, just keeping up with the administrative tasks of your project? Stressed out trying to make your business balance between various spreadsheets and software systems? Did you envision a different life when you got into project management within the construction industry? Would you rather spend more time actually managing projects, as opposed to sitting in your office locating information and chasing a paper trail? If these questions resonate with you, then it may be time to look into an integrated construction management solution.
Here are five ways a construction management solution can add value to your business:
Enhanced Customer Satisfaction
Having a more clear and complete understanding of how each project is progressing keeps operations on track, and therefore, improves customer satisfaction. When a project is moving along as planned, your customers can rest assured that the project is on schedule and on budget. If an issue does arise, a construction management solution allows for easy location of the problem so it can be fixed immediately. Your customers will also appreciate the speed and accuracy in which you will be able to report, as you will be able to not only access a quick snapshot of how the project is going but also be able to drill down into further detail quickly and efficiently.
With a construction management solution in place, keeping track of financial data and ensuring each project is progressing according to budget improves the efficiency of your business. Improved efficiency directly correlates to increased profitability, as you will be to complete projects quicker and increase revenue, and you will be able to take on even more projects with the same amount of resources. For example, new functionalities such as being able to enter information directly from the field to the office or cloud, saves travel costs for your employees while allowing them to be more efficient with their time as well.
Simplified Planning Process
An integrated construction management system gives you the ability to streamline the planning stage of the project for your customers. You will be able to provide information such as specific materials required, the expected budget, and time required to complete the job all in detail to your customers. You can then schedule your project, using Jonas’ Project Scheduler for example, all the while keeping track of the progress from your Project Management view in the system as well.
Keeping organized is essential to the success of any project. It is also one of the biggest challenges. By having a dashboard view in place to quickly identify if a project is on track, you will be able to focus on the actual project instead of patching up issues as they arise. A construction management system will also allow you to better keep track of your employees and the resources being used to ensure the project is on the right track.
Actually Manage Your Project
Instead of focusing on day-to-day tasks, a construction management system lets you focus on the big picture when it comes to sustaining and growing your business. Information the software can provide in real-time such as in-depth cost analysis, project performance, and productivity will prove invaluable to the decision-making process for your business. Having this information readily available will give you the necessary knowledge to make accurate and informed business decisions.
