500 Million Dollar TIGER Grants: The Beginning of Widespread Capital Improvement

President Trump made headline news back in May when he announced his 200-billion-dollar capital improvement plan for the country. Recently, there has been some movement on the infrastructure improvement program with the United States Department of Transportation receiving $500 million in Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grants.

This is a major development for the many organizations that have projects looking to get funded. The criteria for a project receiving a grant is as follows:

  • Project needs to be ready to break ground
  • Project needs to have significant job-creation potential
  • Project needs to have significant applications for American manufacturing

This major news story means that the beginning of widespread capital improvements all over the nation has started and is expected to continue through September 2020 and beyond. Now more than ever, it is imperative that organizations are properly managing all of their capital construction projects as efficiently as possible.

That's where Projectmates' award-winning software comes into play.

With Projectmates, being away from your desktop is no longer an issue.

The mobile app allows you to quickly access your project management responsibilities on the "My Work" page. This area displays every task that has been assigned to you across all of your projects.

Projectmates Mobile can alert users every time a new task has been assigned to you or and even when updates have been made. Users can then simply give the notification a swipe, and the app will open and take you straight to that item so that you can take immediate action and complete tasks faster. Users can easily respond to RFIs, complete a schedule item, approve an invoice, as well as much more all from your mobile device at any given moment.

As the construction management industry takes a prominent role in the transformation of our nation's infrastructure, it is critical to success that projects are managed efficiently through improved communication, increased accountability, fiscal transparency, and the complete control over every step of the construction process that Projectmates provides.
