How ProjectPro Has Helped Customers Have An Extra Edge During COVID-19


Extended Customer Support On ProjectPro During The Crisis

The spread of COVID-19 has turned to be a major setback for the construction industry. Especially when it comes to increased project spans, labor shortage, and massive cost overruns, the contractors have gone through major transitions, temporary deferments, or complete suspensions.

This has prompted the construction companies to evaluate and define their needs as the situation has worsened with the spread of the pandemic. With current circumstances, construction companies are either struggling to return to the site, while those who have returned or never moved from site struggle to keep up with the safety guidelines.

Meanwhile, contractors and project managers have a growing need for construction management software to keep up with tasks that require extensive documenting. The unsettling loss to construction projects demand technology that can improve the process to retain workflow while securing profits.

Considering the changing needs of contractors, ProjectPro with the capabilities of Dynamics 365 Business Central and our COVID-19 resources for construction industry brings everything required for communication, documenting, and management across office and site teams. Here we have a few quick examples of how ProjectPro has helped their customers navigate through the pandemic while taking a competitive advantage over others.

Real-time Documentation

The primary reason why our customers rely heavily on ProjectPro as a construction management software is the advantage, they have with their record-keeping process. From routine inspections at the site to the project progress reports, ProjectPro has added value to the entire documentation process. The ease that it brings with logging of job labor has made it simple to accurately track labor hours assigned to a particular task.

ProjectPro’s extended customer support and features have helped customers have detailed insights into their construction projects.  It made it easier to plan alternate shifts of the workers when the working capacity at the site was reduced to ensure social distancing.
