Paperless Construction Projects - Software applications for construction project management (document management, of course, is part of that)

Yesterday, I “Google-searched” on the term “paperless construction”, and one of the “hits” that came up was a Press Release from Englewood Construction, a General Contractor, promoting the fact that they launched a “paperless construction project management system”. That Press Release was issued in September 2009.

Well, that Press Release provoked my curiosity, so I went further, and that led me to the web-site of a company called “Procore Technologies”.

Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, Procore Technologies, Inc. was founded in 2003 by a team with proven backgrounds in construction management and creating successful software as a service (Saas) applications.

Procore makes construction project management easier, more efficient and more profitable. If your company manages construction project teams, you can do your job better with Procore. With Procore, communications are more efficient, project information doesn't get misplaced, people can get the documents they need whenever they need them, and items with due dates aren't forgotten.

And, a visit to Procore’s web-site led me to the web-site of “Digital Construction”.

While at that site, I explored some of their monthly “digital” magazines, and found that, in October 2010, they published an article – “Top 5 Construction Project Management Applications”

You can get to that October issue by following these steps:

Title of Article: The Top 5 Construction Project Management Applications

The top construction project management applications, designed to improve collaboration, and keep projects on-time and on-budget

Author: Laura Clapper

Software applications mentioned in the article:

- - Aconex

- - AEC-Sync


- - Procore

- - Skir Unifier

Before I found this article, I’d never before heard of any of these construction management software applications. Quite frankly, before I read the article, I was “kind of” expecting to see at least one software application – from the reprographics industry – mentioned in the article. But, alas, I found none mentioned.

Perhaps ReproMAX, ARC and MySmartPlans, all of whom offer software applications that deal with construction project collaboration and management, should contact the owner of Construction Digital Magazine to let that magazine know that their “products” exist!
