Today’s project owners need a tool that can provide visibility across every phase of the construction project—from initial planning and design through construction and final closeout. PWC suggests portfolio management optimization tools typically increase overall portfolio value by between 5% and 20%. To achieve this and other benefits, project owners need the right data, the right technology, and the right skills and processes.

Projectmates answers this need with a suite of tools to improve document management, budgeting, scheduling, change order tracking, and risk assessment, just to name a few. While its cost-tracking tools provide detailed insights into how costs impact individual projects as well as the overall construction program in realtime, Projectmates stands out for its out-of-the-box reporting capabilities.

“Projectmates brings something very dependable to project owners, providing a holistic solution that covers the entire project lifecycle,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director of Constructech, and president of Specialty Publishing Media. “What makes this product so unique is that it’s intuitive and highly configurable, minimizing the need for costly or time-consuming coding.”

One of the factors that makes the product so valuable is the technology enables owners to tailor the platform to their unique requirements—with no coding required.

While the product has been trusted by project owners for years, the company has made several enhancements in the past year, including new integrations with OxBlue and EarthCam, meaning users can gain direct access to visual documentation of a project’s progress right within the Projectmates platform.

The company has also enhanced Projectmates with multilingual and multi-currency support, introduced zoom and pan functionalities in the photo galleries, redesigned the scheduling system, and implemented an even stronger password security feature, among other notable updates.

With all of this in mind, Projectmates was named to the 2024 Constructech Top Products, which awarded 91 products making a real contribution to construction. Out of these, only 24 were selected as the best of the best, and Projectmates was among them. A trusted product is defined as an application that has been in the market for more than three years.

The awards program aims to cut through all the noise to find the best products serving the construction industry and ultimately hopes to inspire future generations to see the possibilities that technology can provide in the construction industry.

For project owners, Projectmates gives the ability to meticulously track and report on program and project progress, status, changes, and issues, providing crucial insights to all major stakeholders. This realtime visibility enables swift and informed decision-making, resulting in faster project delivery with reduced errors. At the end of the day, isn’t that what every project owner needs and wants for today’s projects?
