Richardson, TX — January 14, 2014 — Systemates, Inc. is excited to announce a new partnership with New Jersey City University. With multiple major projects planned, New Jersey City University sought a construction project management software that would efficiently streamline their upcoming construction projects. After reviewing several vendors, NJCU deemed Projectmates to be the best fit.
New Jersey City University recently announced three major construction projects planned: a 103,000 sq. ft. West Campus Academic building, expansion and renovation of their current Science building, and a 415 bed residence hall. In addition, NJCU will also be undertaking several renovation projects designed to meet the needs of their academic programs in coordination with the school's Facilities Master Plan. As a result of the variety and scope of the projects, NJCU decided to look into a construction management solution that fit the needs of education programs.
Projectmates demonstrated that it was the best fit for our needs," said Andrew Christ, Associate Vice President, and Deborah Morales, Associate Director of Facilities and Construction Management. "It is focused on construction project management; has a variety of templates that we can use, provides excellent 'at your fingertips' executive reports, is cloud based, and was within budget."
NJCU's main needs consisted of a tool that would provide consistent and streamlined processes of their cost tracking. Not only does Projectmates have the ability to streamline workflows, it also stores and manages all related construction data in one location. Because Projectmates is a web-based multi-platform solution, all team members, from project managers through Directors, can input information anywhere at any time.
Additionally, Projectmates' extensive out-of-the-box reporting feature allows for a snapshot of individual projects as well as the construction program in its entirety. Executive management at NJCU will now have access to project information at a moment's time, engaging team members and partners in a way that encourages collaboration and provides historical data for future planning needs.
