  • Solution: Real-time access to up-to-date-communication

    Linking all necessary spreadsheets can be arduous, if not impossible. An integrated cost management solution allows teams to centralize all cost activities in the cloud, providing an accurate view of project costs.

  • Solution: Streamlined and centralized change management

    Streamlined upstream and downstream change order workflows create clear accountability and ensure company defined processes are completed. Throughout the entire process, a detailed activity log is captured for audit purposes.


    Switching to a comprehensive cloud-based platform allows teams to leverage custom document templates to standardize and auto-generate contracts and payment documentation.

  • Solution: Integrated schedule and budget management

    With an integrated platform, teams can visually plan time-based allowances and align them with the overall project schedule. This type of cost management tool allows you to manage budgets and associated sub-items by adding start and end dates, ratios of time changed, associated unit costs and more, displayed in a Gantt chart.


    With a software platform that integrates your existing tools, the right data will move freely from ERPs and other project management tools into your cost management solution. This eliminates the need for duplicate data entry, removes the risk of human-generated mistakes, increases transparency of needed information, and streamlines workflows.
