Tools to Solve Your Construction Project Management Headaches

No matter the size of your construction project, there’s always a ton to keep track of. From manpower to supplies to machinery, you have to manage a lot of moving parts, and the schedule inevitably changes. The good news is there are easy-to-use, affordable tools that can simplify and streamline your construction project management.

Whether you’ve got a five-man team or are managing dozens of subcontractors, you don’t have to spend a ton of money, time or effort getting everything you need in one place. Most of the out-of-the-box construction project management software is expensive, highly complicated and more than a lot of companies actually need.

Every company is different, so effective construction project management tools need to be flexible and easy to customize. That's the beauty of working with Quickbase as the foundation of your construction project management software. It allows you to bring information together from a huge variety of platforms and databases, customize your displays and get all your project management needs consolidated into the same place.

Ditch the spreadsheets. Sync up everyone’s schedules. And do it at a fraction of the cost.

Streamline Scheduling

Whether you want to view your schedule from a Gantt chart or a calendar view, you’ll be able to keep track of all your assets at-a-glance. And you can keep things organized in real time.

Schedules change constantly. That’s just a fact of life in the construction industry. You shouldn’t have to worry about making updates in multiple places or scrambling to communicate those changes to everyone involved. With either our Constructbase or QLean products, or a simple custom solution, you’ll be able to keep everyone up to date and communicate changes directly from the field.

Here are just a few of the ways that our construction project management tools can take the headache out of scheduling:

  • Automatically update all dependencies when something changes
  • Make changes directly from the field using mobile access
  • Quickly identify and manage variances
  • Automatically notify everyone impacted by a change
  • See how many people are on a job site on a given day
  • View daily and weekly work plans
  • Track task status and manpower

Manage All Documentation in One Place

Keeping track of your RFIs and RFPs doesn’t have to be a nightmare of folders on a desktop. Using our construction software, you can centralize your documentation and view status updates from the same place. If you’ve already got a system – whether you use Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, or any other cloud storage system – it will integrate seamlessly with your new project management tool. 

Rather than having to store your documents in one place and open another program to track the status, you can manage and track your documentation from the same dashboard. Accept, store and approve of submittals in one place. View the status of estimates and invoices without having to bounce between applications.

Keep Track of Safety Requirements

It’s easy to overlook who has fallen behind on their safety training if you have to open a separate program just to keep track. With VeilSun's construction project management software, you can sync up any existing training platforms and easily keep an eye on requirements. Set up automatic reminders for ongoing training, and view at a glance if anyone is out of compliance.

Similarly, you can easily sort your database by who has completed appropriate training for which tools and tasks. Whether you’re managing employees or subcontractors, you’ll be able to quickly identify who’s licensed or qualified to operate any given machinery. And if you have your schedule synced up with your team database, you’ll also be able to identify who’s available on a given day!

Save Time and Money with Easy Onboarding

Perhaps most importantly, our construction project management tools are user friendly and cost-effective. Stop wasting money on over-the-top solutions that don’t really fit your needs. If you’ve already got systems in place, you can quickly and effectively bring those tools together in a centralized hub without breaking the bank.

We’ll help you find a flexible, customized solution and have it up and running. The dashboards and interfaces are intuitive, so you won’t have to worry about extensive training or technical expertise. Best of all, the cost structure operates on a user-basis rather than a project basis. So it scales to fit your needs regardless of project size or expense.
