Dallas, TX — February 25, 2010 — Systemates and OxBlue, the leading provider of construction cameras, today announced they've partnered to integrate OxBlue webcams into Projectmates, the award-winning construction management software. Owners and project executives already equipped with Projectmates now have the added ability to be virtually present at any jobsite.
With Projectmates OxBlue integration, project stakeholders can see the construction happen in real time with up-to-date progress pictures. As a complete construction management software solution, Projectmates has powerful tools for everything from two-way bidding to construction workflow to cost tracking and earned value analysis. Projectmates dashboard quickly alerts users of their tasks and due dates, missed and upcoming deadlines, and other vital information in user-friendly charts, graphs, and icons. "A picture is worth a thousand words," says Systemates Partner Hemant Bhave. "OxBlue webcams provide an additional level of transparency in construction management."
Projectmates integration with OxBlue is great. When you log in to Projectmates, you get a complete snapshot of everything related to that project including live video-feed of the construction site via a hi-def webcam. The latest site picture is automatically pulled from the live webcams. Clients also love the link that opens the camera page showing the time-lapse movie of the project progress as well as the ability to overlay the pictures," says Bhave. "This just takes visibility and project control to a new high!"
The integration brings the best of construction management project software and construction cameras into one Web-based application accessible anytime from PC-based and mobile devices. "We've consistently heard from customers that they want to integrate the OxBlue construction cameras with their project management systems," says Chandler McCormack, owner of OxBlue. "So when customers who use Projectmates construction management software requested the technology be integrated to capture all project information seamlessly in one place, both OxBlue and Systemates were in favor of working together to make that a reality."
