Richardson, TX — November 14, 2013 — Mike Zamora, Sr. Solutions Architect, of Systemates Inc., recently presented at the Construction Management Association of America National Conference. Construction managers across the country gathered at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 27-29 for the CMAA National Conference and Trade Show. Zamora's speech focused on the importance of having a collaborative construction project management solution when utilizing Integrated Project Delivery methodology.
One of the main topics of conversation was around selecting and implementing project management software early in the process instead of relying on an external solution your architect or contractor may already have in place. By finding and implementing a project management solution early on, owners can avoid the unnecessary finger pointing and operate from one version of the truth. Essentially, this will provide owners with views of the bigger picture and allow for more informed decision making.
Integrated Project Delivery is designed for team building and collaboration early on in the project. Its goal is to unite the team in an environment that is efficient and allows for a more successful project. The same can be said for a project management solution. When a PM solution is selected earlier on in the life of a project, the more successful the project will be.
Zamora will also present this speech at the CMAA North Texas Chapter meeting later this year.
