Eyemart Express Selects Projectmates Construction Management Software for Retail Projects

Richardson, TX — August 13, 2013 — Systemates, Inc. announced that Eyemart Express will team up with Projectmates construction management software for retail construction projects across the country.

Eyemart Express helps millions improve their vision in over 30 states and 141 locations with an emphasis on providing attractive eyewear and making customers happy. As the company has grown over the years, the Design and Construction department has played a key role in improving customer satisfaction and experience within its stores. Everything from the waiting areas, doctor's offices, and labs has improved. Selecting Projectmates to manage its growing number of retail locations allows Eyemart to take its construction management program to the next level.

Projectmates will help us save time in the sense that everything is centralized," said Tom Wentz, senior vice president of design and construction.

Wentz said Projectmates' user-friendly software sets it apart from other construction management software he's seen.

Eyemart will be able to overcome current challenges in their construction process by using Projectmates to keep track of project costs, track and award bids, and manage the punchlist from the field using iPads and other tablet devices.

"Projectmates will be a lot quicker and easier to use when in the field," Wentz said. Wentz is particularly excited about the punchlist feature because people can access it from the field.

With Projectmates for Retail, Eyemart can better keep up with workflow processes, check tasks and add photos from the field. Everyone from store operations and merchandising to human resources all play a part in getting a store open so it was important for Eyemart to select a software system that is accessible by all project team members.

Projectmates is 100% cloud-based, which allows the owner, contractor, architect, and other project team members to collaborate on a common platform.
