Technology Creates Accountability for California Contractor

Construction companies are discovering that software can create accountability. One example is Pankow Builders, which specializes in complex projects and work in facilities.

The company has experience in design management, sustainable design and construction, virtual design and construction, and lean construction practices. It also is experienced in the areas of design-build and integrated project delivery.

For this organization, a large percentage of the business is spread across different regions and jobsites. With this in mind, the company knew it needed a business process management (BPM) platform that provides a view of processes by role. It also needed a tool that could integrate different departments around common processes.

Managing Processes with Software

Pankow Builders researched and reviewed many tools, and ultimately decided on Promapp’s cloud-based software. The tools goal is to standardize and streamline business processes in its three offices and across various jobsite locations.

The builder expects to be using the software by early February. This comes at a good time too, as it anticipates expansion in the year ahead. Currently the organization has 250 employees, and expects that number to grow to more than 300 in the next six months as it begins a number of new projects throughout California.

While this is only one example, a BPM platform can enable construction companies to manage processes across a various projects. As more companies look to adopt technology tools and to incorporate data into their everyday systems, tools like BPM, are just one example of many that can help construction companies streamline processes and gain greater visibility in an effort to ultimately land more projects.
