Software that Runs the Construction Industry

These days we document our lives by computer systems. It is impossible to spend a day without the use of any computer device or software system. So it should be no surprise to learn that the construction business relies heavily on software to efficiently operate.

Construction management software is used by designers, engineers and estimators in addition to folks in the field as it is extremely simple to keep track of all aspects of the job, progress towards goals, budget and more. It provides an at-a-glance dashboard for job status and progress towards milestones and which responsible party or sub-contractor is working on a which part of the construction project. The construction accounting software module plays a vital role in estimating and tracking costs.

Payroll software is a must for each and every industry but even more so because of the influx of employees working on various stages of the construction project. The payroll accounting software preserves a record of all the workers on the project, hours worked, bonuses owed and more.

One important aspect of project management software is the role it can play in the coordination and collaboration of the architects, engineers and other professionals as they all work towards the common goals on a project. Keep in mind proper coordination is vital to the success of any large construction project and therefore your construction management software is integral to the success of your company.

The CAD program will help you determine how much steel is needed while the project management software will keep you updated about when you will need it. The accounting software will stage and track the orders for that steel and make sure it arrives when it is needed.

The market is filled with a variety of software from a number of suppliers. Some come from large companies that develop software for a wide variety of industries and some are from construction specialists. Your choice will largely be determined by the cost and functionality you need for your particular company as well as how difficult it will be to transition to the new software. Seamless backward integration into your existing platform can be a huge time saver and should be a top consideration in your selection criteria.

contractorHow Construction Managers Bring Value

Anyone who has ever started a construction project knows that managing all the moving parts of that project is not as easy as it appears.

This is why finding and hiring a great construction manager is one of the best decisions anybody could make.

A good construction manager is well versed in all aspects of construction. This includes understanding the rules and regulations surrounding the particular type of project. A second valuable asset a construction manager brings to the table is the knowledge of each individual trade and how to manage and schedule their jobs. Thirdly, a construction manager will have a good feel for the various subcontractors available in the local market and will know which ones to hire and use for your project in order to deliver the best results for the best price.

Working with a reputable construction manager is like suddenly having access and control over a space that would otherwise be difficult for you to work in. When a project owner starts construction (whether a commercial owner or home owner), it might be a first time experience. Employing an individual that can view both sides of the project and act as a liaison to all parties is crucial.

A seasoned construction manager also aids with ensuring that a project stays within budget. From scoping the project to negotiating material purchases and labor agreements, construction specific, experience, knowledge and communication skills are important for success.
