It is believed that $14.4 trillion estimated global construction output by 2030 and $7.28 trillion was what the construction market valued in 2021.

Based on the following statistics, 72% of companies say that construction projects have taken longer than expected. Nearly 70% of tradesmen identify poor scheduling as the leading factor in the decreased productivity of their workers. Approximately 35% of construction professionals' time is spent (over 14 hours per week) on non-productive tasks, such as finding information on projects, resolving disputes, and dealing with mistakes and rework.

With that being emphasized, construction firms wedged with the conventional operational practices to resist expenses on a construction technology are majorly deprived of productivity and revenue. The inability to choose and adopt the right construction project management software is another potential reason for the loss of visibility. Therefore, there are various factors that Proficient may advocate for construction companies to explore in order to increase productivity.

Maintain Project Schedule 

It is more complicated than it seems to keep construction projects on schedule since many factors are continually impacting the operations. Nothing may slow down a project more than an unexpected setback. It is essential to do preventive maintenance and other activities to keep the project's assets and machinery operating efficiently.

This is where construction project management software like Proficient comes in to assist in keeping track of each project and ensuring that everything is delivered on schedule and with all pertinent information in one location.

By utilising Proficient to maintain the project's schedule, construction developers would be able to establish an optimal maintenance schedule for the project. They could anticipate potentially at-risk jobs and respond rapidly to bring them in line with the project schedule, with the added benefit of staying within budget thanks to the ability to gain real-time information on how labor costs affect the budget.

Integration of Productivity tools and a robust document management system (DMS) 

Why are these important? 

It enables consistent, real-time, and secure access to critical project information for making the best decisions possible. It is essential to combine productivity tools with a comprehensive document management system (DMS). Stakeholders in the construction industry may take immediate control of the company's files and operations to keep them organised and efficient, which will increase productivity and reduce the likelihood of missing papers. 

Proficient is the only construction software that integrates productivity tools in a project management framework with DMS, enhancing team productivity without a doubt. It facilitates the uploading and storage of data with robust capabilities that make it simple for users to search for and locate important information. Proficient enables simple access to your project information, saving construction stakeholders time they would have otherwise spent on non-productive tasks. 

Bridge stakeholders’ communication

As an end-to-end construction project management software, Proficient coordinates and manages every part of the construction process. This includes the identification of stakeholders, the development of communication plans, and the implementation of strategies to keep all stakeholders informed of the project's progress.

Automatic reminders for assigned tasks are one way in which Proficient bridges communication gap. An engineer will receive an email reminder 24 hours before to a planned inspection, allowing them to schedule a time to review the assignment. Daily reminders are afterwards sent automatically to the necessary parties. There will be a reminder at the time of the assignment, followed by reminders every 24 hours until the work is complete. All parties are now accountable, and there will be no communication gaps. 

The days of using a spreadsheet to track the progress of submissions and technical approvals are long gone. All relevant parties are able to view which inspectors are awaiting permission, what information their inspectors are asking, and what is non-conforming.
