Powerproject by Elecosoft: Because Construction Project Planning Is Complicated Enough

Construction project schedules can become things of enormous complexity.

Accounting for all the moving parts of a project to get it to on-time completion is no small feat – no matter the size of the project.

As a construction planner, you’re:

  • Directing the allocation of resources, contractors and equipment.
  • Optimizing for cash flow.
  • Working to proactively mitigate clashes and delays.
  • Gathering and reporting on progress to stakeholders.

The last thing you need slowing your team down is time out of your day to learn a complex and expensive software solution.

But, to protect against litigation caused by delays, adhere to owner requirements, and keep schedules, tasks and resources on track, a project scheduling software is a must.

When every day counts, you need a software that’s simple to use, yet robust enough to handle your most complex projects, and grow with your team.

Why Construction Planners Are Switching From MS Project or Primavera P6: 

Traditionally, construction planners have relied on MS Project or Primavera P6 to develop construction schedules.

However, many planners have found these solutions to be clunky, counterintuitive and difficult to learn.

Instead of the software supporting the way construction planners work, it was creating more work. For example:

  • P6: Has Confusing Defaults
  • P6: Has A Difficult Interface Resulting In A Longer Learning Curve
  • P6: Has Expensive Licensing Fees
  • P6: Doesn’t Have A Free Mobile Viewer
  • P6: Has Long, Drawn Out Project SetUp Times

Powerproject: A Simply Better Scheduling Tool

Powerproject is the globe’s favorite alternative to MS Project and Primavera P6.

With over 100,000 users worldwide * Powerproject takes a different approach to construction project management software.
