Construction & Renovation (large companies)

ProcessMate is a cloud software managing processes through easy configuration that requires no IT skills and can be accomplished in a few minutes. The system requires no installation or hardware, it’s in Cloud so you can have it ready in minutes. A quick summary:

  • Construction and/or Renovation process is tracked as Process (that is, a sequence of activities), with all necessary information attached with each process, for example, site and contract details, type of work, etc
  • The construction process will follow a defined set of steps from initiation to invoicing the customer, each assigned to individual users – sales, on-site team, etc.
  • The time limits may be set for each activity in order to track delays. Users get notified of progress via email.
  • Documents and files may be attached to each construction & renovation process.
  • Users get notified of the progress via email.

Process

The Construction & Renovation Process is a workflow (set of tasks) that can easily be configured in ProcessMate and provide rich set of functionality to track and manage such processes starting from the moment when a is received and ending with invoicing of the customer. While various construction companies have own specific processes, we propose this as generic workflow that can be tailored to the needs of individual company.

Viewing Ongoing Construction and Renovation processes

The Process Repository of ProcessMate is a catalog of processes (so called “process types” or “process templates”). Here we are only interested in one process type: Construction & Renovation in Construction category.

The above view shows all ongoing Construction processes ongoing in the system, together with their progress, key details and steps that currently await users action. More information on each individual process can easily be reached by clicking More Info button.

Viewing All Processes

Upon navigating to the process, the list of the past and ongoing processes is shown (in ProcessMate each Processes "run" is called Process Instance) with their status and specific data:

Process List - list of individual Construction processes with their status and specific data Process List – list of individual Construction & renovation processes with their status and specific data

The above view shows all current and past processes, allows viewing details in a tabular form which works well for company’s managers and employees who need all details at once. The view can easily be exported into an Excel-compatible CSV file and imported to MS Excel if needed.

Construction Process Dashboard

Dashboard is a feature for viewing consolidated information of Constructions & renovations. Dashboard is comprised of several views: ongoing processes, past process performance and others.

The below view demonstrates the Current Processes dashboard, showing all ongoing Construction processes, all the ones that run late as well as all problems raised by users.
Dashboard view - Current construction processes

The above view is typically interesting to managers who like to see all consolidated information of the current status in one view.

Tracking Tasks (activities) of Construction processes

The next view shows a view of individual processes. Process Data section shows information of each process (the input fields may be extended or changed through easy and quick configuration). The Tasks section shows a list of tasks, their statuses, completion dates, due dates and assigned responsible users or groups.
