Benefits of Leveraging a Construction Project Management Software

When you’re building a house, there are a lot of moving parts to fit together. What goes into creating the house of your client’s dream is much more complex than what meets the eye.


Whether it’s creating the original plan with your clients, aligning subcontractors, creating a schedule, or any other task, keeping you and your team organized and on track is a major piece of the homebuilding puzzle.

How efficient are you at managing your team? If you’re spending hours on your phone, sending various emails, and working within multiple platforms or simply writing different things down here and there, it may be time to explore a new option.

A construction project management software is the tool you need to streamline your day-to-day processes and spend less time at your desk and more time on the jobsite.

Wondering how a construction project management software can help you? Here are 3 advantages:

1. Consolidate Your Data in One Powerful Platform

Spending your time jotting changes down, entering numbers in spreadsheets, sending emails, and re-entering information in different platforms can eat up valuable hours of your day.

What if you could do all of these tasks in a single platform? How much time could you save?

Find out today with a construction project management software like BuildTools.

2. Access from Anywhere

Questions about a project can arise at any time, no matter where you are. When you need to give an answer, it won’t help if that answer is written down at your office.

BuildTools is cloud-based, so you can access the information you need anywhere, any time. Plus,  you’ll be able to review that project budget, look over plans, or upload project photos from the jobsite.

BuildTools is available on Google Play and the App Store.

3. Save Time and Money

Your time is valuable.

Construction project management apps help you maximize what you can accomplish with the hours you put in. Keep all of your projects at your fingertips, and make updates and changes wherever you are, with the touch of a button. Communicate seamlessly with anyone involved in your project.

Stop wasting time sifting through emails. Construction project management software streamlines your communication, so you can get in touch with anyone you need to, whenever you need to.  

When confusion about change orders comes up, your construction project management software has your back.

BuildTools makes approval or rejection simple and official with a digital signature. Don’t let handshake deals come back to haunt you. You can’t afford to flush money down the drain because your client has one understanding of a contract and you have another. Get approval instantaneously, and in writing with your app. Then, if you need to, you can look back through your records and show clients what was agreed upon.

You’ll save money on operations, too. By being more organized, you can keep your team on track, keeping a tight schedule and making sure your people are where they need to be when they need to be there.

Get the Support You Need

Switching over to a new process can be daunting, even if it’s the right move in the long term. But it doesn’t have to be.

Look for a software with reliable, easy-to-access customer support. Ask questions like, “Will there be someone there to answer my questions?”, “How do I go about asking a question?”, and “Do you provide trainings when I add new hires to my team?”.
