There are a number of challenges facing college and university executives when it
comes to the delivery of capital projects, including: clearly communicating and
managing the project owner’s requirements; cost concerns; and the level of visibility
throughout the process.
At Projectmates, we understand these challenges and have designed the latest version
of our online construction project management software with you in mind.
Following, we touch on these concerns and explain how Projectmates’ construction
project management software addresses each.
Project Owner’s Requirements
In order for a capital project to run smoothly, it must begin with a clear set of
expectations from the project owner. This includes identifying all the requirements
involved to accomplish the task at hand, setting guidelines for all team members,
and establishing criteria for success.
With our online construction project management software, owners have the ability
to completely customize each project portal to meet the needs of his/her organization.
All of the details including the schedule, responsibilities, deadlines, etc., can
be modified until you decide it’s complete and seal access to the original plan.
From that point on, you and all applicable team members can enjoy 24/7 access, an
audit trail, a history log, and version control.

Significant cost savings are recognized from fully-electronic document generation,
eliminating the need for document printing and shipping costs.
As paperwork decreases and communication becomes clearer, this means a more efficient

There will be no more surprises at the end of a project when the large number of
effects that can alter a budget have already made their impact. You can manage and
monitor any and all changes to the budget as they occur so there are no surprises
at the end of the project—minimizing costs.
Level of Visibility
When visibility is increased, it makes it easier to schedule, allocate resources,
and ensure success. With our online construction project management software, you
have the ability to view the current status and every detail of a project in an
at-a-glance window, forgoing the need for constant progress-checking. Team members
can share drawings, documents, meeting minutes, discussions, project budgets, invoices,
and many more management processes.
