A large part of being in the construction industry is being able to deliver projects on time and on budget. Rather than using limited software to keep track of projects, project managers use databases to define custom projects, create workflows and keep everyone in the loop.

In the meantime, here are some of the ways that project managers use database software to run safer and more efficient operations.
Field & Site Management
Having a central database allows all partners to communicate with each other and manage documents in real time. Plus, critical business information can be accessed at any time, allowing partners to make informed decisions. This helps projects to be completed on time and to the highest standards. A single platform where everyone is kept in the loop also provides peace of mind for project managers who can’t be on site all of the time.
Estimating & Bidding
Custom estimation and bidding software makes it easy to stay on track with your budget and ensure everything is accounted for. After all, projects that go over budget can have your company losing money. Estimation software lets project managers run accurate projections for what each part of the project will cost. There are also options to prepare and manage bids.
Equipment & Inventory Tracking
To ensure your project has everything it needs, it’s important to keep tabs on equipment and inventory. Database solutions help project managers stay up to date on the statuses of their parts and materials by sharing real-time updates. Also included is fleet management for dispatch, scheduling and maintenance tracking. This ensures that all fleet are accounted for and properly managed.
Thankfully, today’s database solutions aren’t limited to your desktop computer. After all, you’re probably on the go and away from your desk most of the time! Thanks to mobile platforms, project managers can talk to vendors and field teams, review project plans, approve time cards, access project contacts and more. Everything can be easily accessed on any mobile device from anywhere in the world.
These are just a few examples of how database software can be used to streamline operations, improve efficiency and protect customer data all from a single platform. For more information on how Arkware can work with your construction company, contact us today.
