Richardson, TX — April 15, 2015 — Systemates, Inc. is proud to announce GPD Group's recent selection of Projectmates, one of the industry's leading construction program management software. With team members specialized in many different disciplines, GPD Group is capable of overseeing an incredible variety of projects throughout any phase of the project lifecycle. To streamline these projects for clients that did not already have a management solution, however, required construction program management software that was just as robust and adaptable as GPD itself.
Projectmates provides GPD with a single platform of seamless communication between team members and clients. Clients are able to remain constantly aware of program status through Projectmates' document sharing system. Site documents and photos are meticulously archived for viewing by both team members and clients. Additionally, the comprehensive emailing tools allow a consultant or contractor to quickly notify GPD team members of new uploads to the system. This functionality also incorporates non-users, as links for documents and files can be emailed to parties that aren't even on Projectmates.
Projectmates is extremely configurable out of the box, which really sets it apart from competing construction program management software systems. As such, GPD is able to customize each client program to better suit its workflow. Understandably, each of GPD's programs can have different milestones based on client requirements and deliverables. To facilitate this, Projectmates' enables each program to have custom tailored schedules that can be easily modified with minimal hassle.
For GPD Group to better track and communicate a program's status to its respective client, it needed extremely efficient and customizable reporting tools. Projectmates' reporting module delivers this in spades. In addition to over 100 pre-built enterprise reports, Projectmates also features ad hoc reporting; users are able to formulate their own reports simply by dragging and dropping in data. This allows users to produce reports tailored to each viewer, whether it is a fellow team member or a client.
These comprehensive archiving and reporting features of Projectmates also double as assets towards GPD's marketing. Because the software acts as a single storage platform for all project data, GPD Group can easily create project reports highlighting improvements on their schedule delivery and quality control as the years pass. These in-depth facts can be used to support GPD's marketing efforts and display their continued dedication towards improving project quality and delivery.
