Richardson, TX — March 20, 2014 — Systemates, Inc. recently announced the release of Projectmates 12.5, the first of at least two major upgrades planned for 2014 of the award-winning construction project management software.

In addition to multi-browser capabilities and new upload and download features, Projectmates 12.5 also has a brand new mobile application designed specifically for smartphone users.
With a history of partnering with its clients to further develop and improve Projectmates construction software program, Systemates made this version no exception. One such example is the improvement to browser functionality and support. Projectmates is now fully compatible amongst the most popular browsers, providing users with additional means to access the collaborative solution. Additional plugins, previously required in order to utilize the software to its maximum capabilities, are now a thing of the past. As one of the most exciting upgrades yet, the new Projectmates Mobile application provides a streamlined user experience and advanced, touch-friendly technology developed for today's mobile workforce. Built with accessibility and universal access in mind, the mobile application follows progressive enhancement and responsive web design (RWD) principles.
