One dashboard to manage all aspects of your Construction Projects.
The Power of Using a Cloud Project Management ToolWithin a single platform, Project teams have the full range of tools they need to work quickly and successfully: from managing project costs and contractors, through to client contacts and real-time performance updates. The innovation of PROStruction as a new SaaS solution makes all aspects of project management straightforward and easy from your desktop or tablet.
Effective Project Controls
The success of a construction project is measured across specific metrics such as time alloted, budgeting, accuracy of contractors, variation management and a smooth procurement process. It also hinges on effective client communication and document management and having the correct controls in place to eliminate waste, meet compliance and governance standards (reduce exposure to fines) and promote a generally healthy relationship between workers and clients.
These are the key elements of PROStruction which companies find to be more effective than any other system on the market. At every level of employment, from the QA and Estimator, through to the Admin Team and Senior Management, have access to joined up tools which smooth the process of construction project management.
ProStruction starts with the preparation of Plots. This can be done in a number of ways including upload via a Microsoft Excel document. Plot reference and descriptions allow plots to be linked back to the original tender documentation.
Measured Works (relating to allocated labour requirements) are associated to plots. Each measure contains details on the type of activity, quantities and costs. Once a measure is active, all labour costs can then be monitored and tracked.
Variation Manager allows project managers and QS’s to dynamically control unapproved measure costs. This helps to identified both recoverable and non-recoverable variations which can impact the profitability of a project very quickly.
Extra Costs – Prelims / Journals
To create an accurate breakdown of costs within a project, PROStruction also allows for the recording of additional costs outside of the constraints of PROStruction. This may include on-site management charges, PPE equipment, office stationary etc.
The breakdown for each type of cost is easily visible and helps Senior Management to properly explore costing in a logical and time efficient manner. Depending on requirements, PROStruction has the capability to provide alerts when specific costs are added to speed up the approval process and ensure the project is managed closely by the team.
Monitor all active projects with the ability to quickly view critical information. Projects are viewable depend on users’ permissions based on their role. Project Managers will only be able to see the projects they are managing while Senior Management have access to the full range of ongoing projects for review.
All aspects of PROStruction from user access to contractor payments and biometrics are driven through respective projects allowing management at all levels to view project efficiencies and ultimately profitability. The fundamental goal of the solution is to allow users to get access to any required information within 4 clicks of a mouse.
Project Costing Summary
Prostruction users can manage all aspects of costings, such project costs for Labour, Materials, Journals, and Orders. Data can be filtered, and made viewable at a low level to ensure each user has the required information to complete their role effectively. Access to specific information can be changed depending on company setup and operating practices.
Within the system each plot has a target activity for that area. PROStruction records labour costs at the agreed rate as per the original tender. All costing requires approval from the relevant Quantity Surveyor (QS) associated to that project before payments are released.
Information, Contacts and Updates
Each project contains a list of linked contacts with that project. This includes internal contacts and client contacts – communication can either be sent directly through PROStruction or users can use the contact details to get in touch. There is also a notes section where communications can be recorded and shared with other people managing the project.
Bulk Variation Approval
PROStruction allows for bulk approval of variations across a live project with the required information to make informed decisions in good time. This means the delay required for cost checking and approval is greatly reduced and administrative control does not become a burden to project management.
Import / Export with Excel
Ongoing project lists can be imported and elements can be viewed and exported directly to excel as required. All exported data is time and date stamped to ensure proper version control. Senior Management can also schedule bespoke reports as required.
