What software do project managers in construction use?
Project managers use a range of software to support their daily tasks, from cost controls to communication, to document management systems. PlanRadar combines several of these tasks into a single platform where site managers can assign tasks, collect photographs and videos, communicate with subcontractors and alert the project manager to any issues. PlanRadar also enables the sharing of plans and documents so that the whole project team is working from the same information. And finally, the project manager can use the input from other users to generate statistics and reports, track project progress and report to the client or senior management.
