Managing your construction project schedule is one of the most difficult tasks in the construction process. But, it doesn’t have to be. When you use Projectmates® project schedule program, building task-based timelines is easy. Set task predecessors, assign responsibilities, set reminders, and your schedule will start to manage itself. Everyone on your team will be able to access their specific schedule from anywhere on any device. Whether you’re in the office or on the go, access to your schedule is never far away.
Looking for a construction project schedule program that does it all? Projectmates’ high-end scheduling functionality puts you back in control of your project timeline. Compare baseline tasks to planned and then to actual. Projectmates will clearly show you if your project is on schedule or if it’s behind, and where it’s slipping. It’s like having three schedules in one.
Bulk import from other construction schedule programs or create schedules from scratch. If your team uses Microsoft Project or Primavera, they can import it in Projectmates’ project schedule program. In fact, you can import schedules from 10 scheduling formats. You can then export all tasks in Microsoft Excel in a single click.
Whether you are viewing your construction project schedules in a task view, Gantt chart, or calendar, you have the flexibility to match your preference. Filter your schedule as a 2- or 3-week look ahead to see what’s just around the corner, or use a custom date range. Our critical path Gantt chart gives you primary dates that must be observed. You can also quickly check milestones across your entire portfolio of projects.
Save time by creating predecessor relationships between schedule tasks like ‘Finish-to-Start,’ ‘Start-to-Start,’ or ‘Parent-Child.’ These relationships naturally update as your team makes progress. Projectmates’ construction project schedule will show you the percent completed for task groups as well as the whole project. When it comes time to close out, you can create a custom action list. Linking action list items to a schedule task will automatically update their completion status.
Keep your team engaged when they fall behind. If someone is late on a task, an automatic email reminder gives them a gentle nudge. The Projectmates mobile app will also send push notifications to keep them on task and the ball rolling. OK, less painful than a cattle prod, but it gets the job done—all within the construction schedule programs.
