Leveraging Tech to Manage Big Projects Better
CSG (Core States Group), www.core-eng.com, Duluth, Ga., is an integrated program delivery provider that empowers clients with a suite of services that encompass architecture, engineering, program management, development, and construction services. To enhance its ability to manage immense multi-site programs, CSG selected Projectmates Construction Program Management Software from Systemates, www.systemates.com, Richardson, Texas, to standardize its processes and maximize efficiency.
CSG, which offices and clientele spread throughout the United States and is typically involved in well more than 1,000 projects annually, will leverage Projectmates to standardize its project management workflow and manage huge multi-site construction programs. CSG has begun adopting the software at a rapid pace, with plans to incorporate hundreds of additional users in the near future.
The company found that there was a lack of standardization in its project management due to the sheer volume of projects it was responsible for with project teams spread across the country. This resulted in a lack of communication and realtime project information. Additionally, CSG operated under a previous system that relied on a web of spreadsheets stored on a FTP site alongside other pertinent documents. This proved to be cumbersome, difficult to moderate, and was detrimental to providing transparency to its clients.
For a company of Core States Group’s scale, it was imperative that its teams received the most attentive support possible during its initial stages of Projectmates adoption. Whether it’s document management, cost tracking, bidding, or scheduling, CSG has been quick to adopt all of Projectmates’ tools for their program management. Now onsite work across sites can be managed and tracked on the Projectmates cloud.
CSG is using Projectmates as a collaborative platform for internal team members, clients, and external parties such as contractors. By configuring user access rights based on these roles, all parties involved in Projectmates are able to login and access their own unique view tailored to their needs. CSG is leveraging this feature to allow the numerous players within a construction program to simultaneously access and communicate across Projectmates.
