LONDON, January 5, 2011 — U.K. builders can schedule, track, and manage projects more efficiently by using one of Xactware’s latest innovations — the Project Management and Scheduling module in Xactimate®.
With this robust tool, builders and renovators can quickly create schedules of all company activities to improve organisation, manage resources, and increase productivity. The Project Management and Scheduling module is contained in Xactimate, an estimating platform that helps builders and insurers reliably estimate building replacement costs faster than with conventional methods. Xactimate was developed by Xactware, an international leader in claims estimation technology, and is used by 80 per cent of U.S. repair builders.
“The module is an ideal solution for builders who want more control over scheduling and managing their work,” said Vernon Davenport, Xactware’s director of European Operations. “Builders can keep tabs on the status of all their projects so they can avoid double-bookings, make better use of essential resources, and cut down on wasted time.”
Xactimate customers can import estimates and assignments into the Project Management and Scheduling module to generate a running list of all work-related tasks and to view projects, employee and subcontractor schedules, plant lists, and workload allocation information from a single user interface. The project schedules and resource lists can be emailed to coworkers, employees, and subcontractors to improve coordination and avoid costly misunderstandings. The Project Management and Scheduling module can also generate easy-to-read charts and diagrams that enhance a builder’s professional image.
“Scheduling and managing projects, resources, and employees has never been easier,” Davenport said. “With this tool, builders and renovators can run their companies like well-oiled machines and show customers they are working with an organisation that can get business done.”
