Although many people love to hate reports, in the construction industry reports can be enhanced to maximise benefits to your company. In terms of reports for construction companies, there are three reports that are of the most importance. These are status, risk and resources reports.
For many construction project managers, the request for a status report is all too common. Regardless of where the request came from, it is important that project managers are able to produce a status report.
For many construction managers without market-leading software, producing a status report can be a nightmare. However, with software such as BuildSmart, accurate and up to date information is readily available helping to simplify the process.
Given that construction software is updated constantly, information can be drawn from multiple departments and cross referencing can be done with ease. Project managers no longer have to ‘guess’ the status of other areas of the business, allowing for much more accurate reporting. Thanks to BuildSmart, status reports are available at the touch of a button.
For construction companies, risk factors are considered throughout the entirety of the project. Generally, these are reviewed periodically. Despite forward planning, dealing with risk in such a way has the potential for retrospective action or repairs after damage has already occurred.
Fortunately, it is possible for risk to be identified continuously with construction software. BuildSmart has all the accumulated knowledge from past and present projects and can identify current risks, as well as potential risks. In doing so, risks can be eliminated or minimised before they become an issue.
Ideally, it would be possible to know who was where, doing what at all times. In the past to find out this information would be extremely tedious. Information would have to be collated from multiple documents and plans just to have an idea of what was happening.
Construction software simplifies this process astronomically. By having all the information in one location, it is possible to accurately manage resources at the touch of a button ranging from staff to equipment. By having information so readily available, it is possible to tweak resources to ensure maximum business efficiency.
