Dallas, TX — March 08, 2011 — Systemates, Inc. today announced that Constructech Magazine named Projectmates as a 2011 Commercial Top Products winner. The Constructech Top Products honor technology solutions that have demonstrated the greatest innovations geared toward the construction market. Projectmates was named in the Trusted Products category; the construction program management software was first released in 2000 and has undergone two to three major version upgrades each year.
The latest data compiled from Constructech magazine shows that nearly 41% of construction companies believe there is real value in expanding IT efforts by implementing both new technology initiatives, as well as maintaining existing systems," says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Constructech magazine. "The winners of the 2011 Constructech Top Products Awards can help companies to do just that. These products come from companies that offer tried-and-true solutions, but have also proven they are willing to continue making enhancements to meet the ever-changing needs of construction professionals."
Judging was based on a variety of criteria, including a product's overall usefulness and uniqueness to the construction industry. "We were thrilled to learn Projectmates won a spot in the 2011 Constructech Top Products. Running a more productive and profitable capital program is at the heart of Projectmates," says Hemant Bhave, AIA, Vice President at Systemates. The construction program management software was designed for owners and has a large client base in retail, real estate development, government and educational agencies.
Projectmates clients derive substantial value through rapid deployment of Projectmates, free online video tutorials, and ASP as well as on-premise hosting options. With the ability to integrate with financial/accounting software, the construction program management software provides construction accounting based on AIA standards, fully collaborative 2-way bidding, and Key Performance Indicators like Earned Value Analysis (EVA). New users learn Projectmates quickly because of its easy-to-use interface and get more done thru fewer steps and clicks and better collaboration via email.
"The Constructech Top Products Award winners represent those companies that were able to deliver award-winning solutions regardless of the state-of-the-economy. The current marketplace is demanding evolution, collaboration, and strong IT strategies, and companies that were not able to rise to the top did not make the cut," says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech magazine. "However, the companies appearing as part of the 2011 Constructech Top Products have risen to meet the needs of their customers, and they are raising the bar for those around them."
