SmartPM Technologies is dedicated to empowering stakeholders involved in commercial construction with the knowledge and tools necessary to minimize spending / maximize profits on capital construction projects and programs.
Comment from SmartPM
"Schedule data is the most complete and logically tied data set on a construction project. It connects all the parts and pieces of a project into a whole and is ideal for analysis. That’s because it provides a roadmap for how the entire project system will function, from notice to proceed forward. It’s just very difficult and time-consuming to get to the level of understanding necessary to convert schedule files to a digital experience and view them on the scale required to make meaningful differences in an organization. Important schedule data remains disjointed and, therefore, is not analyzed easily or effectively. SmartPM solves this problem. It is a real-time automated analytics platform that translates construction schedule data into objective, reliable, and concise visuals all stakeholders can understand and utilize proactively to address critical project risk issues. Automation allows for on-demand, real-time answers so better decisions can be made, and projects can move forward."
