How to build bespoke construction management software for your business?

1. Gather the requirements

2. Select the software’s features and functionalities

  • Calendar integration — Another essential feature of construction management software is a team calendar for scheduling and arranging meetings. Setting up a shared calendar that syncs with common calendar software guarantees that everyone gets reminders and shows up for meetings on schedule. Important due dates can also be added to your team calendar for a fast overview of forthcoming objectives.
  • Budget tracking and planning — All report information can be categorised and assigned to specific projects. Your software solution should be able to tell you which projects have higher profit margins and which ones you should avoid. Construction management software can assist you in gathering data for a project, and you are aware of your budget. The actual costs can be compared against the budget. Contractors can monitor their profitability and project development on a daily basis.
  • Track time — Utilize time tracking software to keep track of how much time you spend on tasks and then use the information to automate your billing. Construction management software with built-in time monitoring capabilities is available, but it may come at the expense of other vital functions. To document your work and relate it to client profiles and projects, you can always add a time-tracking solution into the platform.
  • Analytics — Businesses that use business intelligence and analytics technologies are more nimble, effective, and productive, which can indeed be the difference between winning a contract and failing to convert a prospect in the construction industry. Analytics-enabled construction management software can be utilised for a variety of goals and demands, ranging from finance and reporting to new client acquisitions and improving customer relationship performance.
  • File sharing — Access control, document sharing, and contact lists are all included in the top construction management software. Everyone on the team can input data into the system, and some will have instant access to it whenever and anywhere they require it. Some construction software systems allow you to attach files to projects for easy distribution. Check to see if your project software provides free storage for your files and data while making your selection.
  • Change management — It’s really about intelligence and flexibility when it comes to process improvement, and cloud-based construction management software can help with both. When big changes are required in the construction industry, these techniques will often lessen the stress placed on employees and leaders, while also improving the outcomes of forward-thinking methods.
  • Dashboard — Pick a good software solution that allows you to create team dashboards that are accessible to everyone. Your dashboard can include graphs, charts, visual metrics, and key performance indicators (KPIs). A team dashboard can be used as a project KPI report, and it’s a great tool to use during meetings to show your monitored metrics to everyone and compare real-time results to the timetable.
  • Create Invoice — The simple truth for good project margins is sending correct bills. Work that is completed outside of the scope of the project must be documented and invoiced accordingly. Many contractors who use antiquated procedures waste a significant amount of money. Their field personnel has a difficult time reporting all out-of-scope activity, and even when they do, clients dispute the work. Not only is being able to demonstrate an accurate log and appropriately invoice out-of-scope labour prevent arguments, but it also demonstrates competence to the client.
