Projectmates Construction Management Software Version 9 is Launched to Great Acclaim
You spoke and we listened. You asked for greater
functionality, customizable project dashboards, and a streamlined
appearance and we delivered—with Projectmates Version 9.0. Here
are just some of the advantages our ASP and Total Control server
customers have realized in the upgrade to this web-based
construction management software:
Project Home Page
There are many new and exciting changes that have occurred on
the home page for every project, namely with customizable
project dashboards. For instance, an improved Ball-In-Court section now
allows users to filter their assignments by date or module and
to send those items directly to their Outlook calendar. This
means deadlines and dates won’t be missed again.
Project Photos In earlier versions of
Projectmates, photos were only part of the photo albums. With
this recent upgrade, however, users will notice the latest photos on a
scrolling bar on the home page, along with the “Progress
Pictures”. Choosing an image will enlarge it in the pane
just below the bar, where the user can then zoom in and out for
more detailed views.
Project map has also been added. And this is not just any map.
This is fully customizable to the project location to show
specific area landmarks, hardware stores, eateries, and the like
for easy identification and access.
Schedule Scheduling has also had a facelift,
now providing users with the ability to track baseline, planned,
and actual dates in the schedule module. All three of these date
categories are displayed in both the task list and Gantt chart
views. This functionality allows users to better manage
Budget Users are
thrilled to discover that an upgrade to Version 9.0 means there
is now access to budget approvals. When building the budget,
authorized users can alter the specified columns of detail;
however, once the budget has been approved, those columns are
locked from future editing. Then, that budget can be managed by
making changes in the Variance column (column 2).
A Master budget overview has
also been added so project managers have an at-a-glance progress
report on all or some existing projects. It is completely
customizable, so the user is able to create a Master Budget that
fits his or her particular needs. The Master Budget can also
be used to approve and allocate funds to multiple subprojects
and then see the
reports on actual costs of each subproject in the same view.
Projectmates users are excited about this new version.
“I love the new Project Homepage!” says Kavita.
“Now I can sort all my responsibilities by module or by week and
prioritize my tasks.”
“From what I’ve seen this
morning already, the changes to Projectmates are great!”
says Larissa. “The home page for the stores displaying the
map, latest uploads/updates, and file storage space (used &
limit) is really nice. Not too much for the eye to absorb, since
all the aspects are compartmentalized in their own little
