The first step in developing effective, streamlined project management systems is becoming vigilant against information silos. Easily created and difficult to remove, builders often (and inadvertently) find themselves creating information silos - isolating teams, departments and companies from the information, activities, and reports that they need. Without the free-flow of information, success is hindered and growth is stifled.
One of the best ways for any construction company to ensure that projects remain connected is by adopting a Project Management (PM) platform. Almost like an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for jobsites, this all-in-one solution neatly connects all project management activities onto a singular, cohesive platform. As a result, instead of relying on a myriad of software products to manage workflows, project leads need only to log onto their project management dashboard to access all their project tools; accounting, change orders, checklists, contracts, designs, estimates, RFIs, safety reports, submittals (and more).
In the Project Management category of Construction Tools, Blue Collar Labs explores the technology products that are helping construction companies orchestrate project teams, activities, documents and contractors from a single dashboard.
The 2 sub-categories of Project Management include:
All-in-One PM: An “all-in-one” management solution that combines all aspects of project management into a singular multi-point solution.
Module PM: A project management platform that can be purchased as individual pieces (or “modules”), to address specific project-level information silos
