Richardson, TX — February 25, 2015 — Systemates, Inc. is proud to announce Poma Retail Development as one of its newest clients to implement Projectmates, the industry leading construction program management software. With an extensive and diverse retail development portfolio ranging from food establishments, luxury retail, to toy stores, Poma Retail Development was on the lookout for a solution that would allow them to more efficiently manage their construction projects. PRD's implementation of Projectmates has been an incredible success, allowing them to continue focusing on what's most important: being one of the most professional and reliable design and development program managers in the retail industry today.
Poma Retail Development has seen immediate benefits from how easily Projectmates consolidated the data for its many construction projects. Prior to implementing the software, PRD handled the vast majority of its construction projects in Excel, Word, and email, resulting in data and approval process management being tedious and exhausting.
Living in the Stone Age working with Word and Excel just didn't cut it anymore," said Tim Baze, Chief Controller at PRD. The company noticed immediate improvements in communication between all of its relevant members, including clients, GCs, architects, and vendors. "When you go from archaic to modern everyone is happy. Having consolidated project information is a huge help to everyone," said Baze.
Due to Poma Retail Development's recent growth, quick implementation and software adoption were incredibly important factors when selecting Projectmates construction program management software. Fortunately, a key advantage of Projectmates is how quick the implementation process is. From the time the contract is signed, the first project launched in the software typically occurs as quickly as 8-12 weeks. PRD took that to the next level by incorporating Projectmates into its workflow at an astounding rate. Within 1 month, over 100 contracts and 150 invoices had already been loaded into Projectmates!
