Technological innovations have made it easier for project managers to obtain access to critical, job-related information with the same speed at a jobsite or other remote location as at the main office. Construction management software now allows an administrative assistant at a jobsite to handle paperwork and administrative tasks that used to be performed only in the main office. This includes entering time card information, equipment hours, and other information collected on the job. Project managers at the main office can, in turn, view on-screen the latest job-related information from the jobsite. They can enter production quantities and change orders for the job and compare billing quantities versus engineering quantities. They can also print reports and update job projections online. This allows construction companies to save time, make better decisions, and, ultimately, manage jobs better.
