With a vision to provide real-time data visibility and analytics in construction management functions, Construx Solutions has effectively improved profitability for several construction businesses. For instance, a medium-sized construction company was struggling to maintain essential tasks such as CPM scheduling, delay and impact analysis, cost analysis and project reporting. Consequently, they often had to either hire external consultants or write off the loss in hopes that they would make it up on other projects – all of which negatively impacted its bottom line. After setting up Construx Solutions’ cloud-based SmartPM system, that construction company gained complete visibility on performance through real-time metrics, analytics and daily evaluation of site activities, reducing losses and increasing profit margins.
SmartPM is a competent data management system that has various built-in functionalities to capture, store, analyze and utilize data in ways never seen before. “These integrated functions build a very detailed “as-built” history of the project and allows clients to analyze project cost variances, schedule impacts, and the progress and performance of the various trades at any level, at any time, at the click of a button,” says Pink,
While we still offer all of our consulting services to clients involved in commercial construction, we strive to automate most of the services that we are hired to perform through our SmartPM system
Pink also believes that the major problem that curtails well-organized deployment of technology in the construction space is a lack of software integration among useful systems. “Majority of IT products in the construction space have difficulty supporting each other, and rarely include multiple important processes, often increasing the user’s workload by having to enter information into multiple systems,” says Pink. SmartPM solves that problem by providing a one-stop-shop for data entry through multiple “standard” entry formats which are designed to extract relevant data entered into the system to update other crucial systems through integration. According to Pink, “By utilizing our system, businesses can monitor the status of an on-going project to prevent critical delays and cost overruns, while adding significant efficiencies to the construction management process.”
After mastering the art of data tracking and management, Construx Solutions is focusing on simplifying and enhancing the construction management landscape through the additions of predictive analytics features, as well as extensive integration and automation efforts. Currently, the company aims to fully automate their data management system for ensuring maximum output and minimum human intervention.
