Systemates, Inc. today announced that Burlington School District, the largest district in Vermont, will leverage Projectmates construction project management software for its annual bond program that includes several critical maintenance projects, ranging from updating fire alarm systems and electrical systems to improving energy efficiency and physical accessibility.
The Burlington SD project team was up and running on Projectmates within weeks of contract signing. Burlington SD is using Projectmates construction management software to automate construction administration, track project costs, improve communication, and securely store information such as documents and drawings. Contract change management and pay application approvals are automated through electronic submission and approval workflow.
"The construction industry has come a long way in technology over the years," said Christopher Hinckley, Senior Solutions Architect at Systemates. "In fact, Burlington SD has as-built drawings in Projectmates dating back to 1952! These are completely accessible online from the office or field, which was just unthinkable in the industry just 10-15 years ago."
Burlington SD and partnering architects, engineers, and general contractors benefit greatly from the collaborative nature of Projectmates. Projectmates can be accessed through a simple web browser anytime at the office or in the field on a variety of devices, such as laptops, Smartphones, and tablets. With Projectmates role-based security, the school district still has complete control over access rights to information.
