CMBoost Contract Management System

 
Powerful, Punctual, and Paperless eForms and Applets System!
SmartForms and SmartFlows for a complete automation package!
 

Built specifically for Construction Contract Management and Engineering Design Document Management on SharePoint for solid content management.

 
Where do we start on this one?  We are so excited with the impressive results our clients have had that it is hard to pick the best parts.  Only a live demonstration does justice, but here are some of the key points:

  • A full-fledged contract management software system which can replace PCM/Contract Manager or other limited database systems.
  • Paperless but you can print and file to binders, CDs, etc. as needed.
  • Design document reviews, markups, and approvals are paperless (on screen) also -- no re-scanning needed!
  • Joint drawing markups can be done in a shared online session.
  • The track record has been awesome in preventing lost communications.
  • Potential adverse events are avoided due to the very short communication cycling.
  • Would you like to cut your Submittal times from 28 days to 3?
  • Establishes a blueprint to follow but can be customized to you.
  • Singular and summary 'ball in court' notification options, including reminders and auto-escalation/re-routing.
  • Custom dashboards for the PC or tablet/iPad.
  • GIS Map integration to allow retrieval of key construction documents in relation to a geographic location or floor plan.
 
Note:  ProgramNet hosted portal deployment is available very rapidly and for any project length.  You can deploy first then customize to your project!
Common features across the CMBoost eForms:

  • Color and form flow sequencing are used for easy user experience.
  • Automated alerts and workflow avoids SharePoint's over-alerting tendency.
  • Form sections are role specific, can be saved as draft, and are locked down in progression.
  • Forms are auto-numbered and automatically link the resubmissions.
  • Resubmits are super easy and allow all prior entries to be saved and reused.
  • Tracking lists/logs are automatically generated showing a variety of information.
  • Lists/logs can be sorted and filtered at will to show open, closed, stuck, overdue, etc.
  • Lists/logs can have varying levels of security for monitoring, notification, and escalation.
  • Works on small projects to large and produces consistency across them.
  • Training time needed is minimal (a few hours versus days).
  • Works on Android and Windows tablets -- robust iPad option and support is now available. Click here for more info.

This is truly the modern way to do construction document management.  Seasoned construction managers have praised the CMBoost system over and above long-standing well-known contract manager systems.  Check out form-specific information via the links to the left or from the top menu.  But remember, this is only a partial list, they can each be customized for you, and new ones can be created at any time during your project.  And, they can be evolved as each project calls for it.

A few words about us...

A few words about us...

"As part of the Prairie Waters’ Project [Project Management Institute’s 2011 Project of the Year] ProgramNet was a critical partner in the Program’s overall success. Their expertise in data management, united with their knowledge of Program Management, allowed them to work closely with Program Staff to develop critical data collection, tracking and reporting tools for the overall Program. These tools, when combined with our SharePoint system, added a level of detail and accuracy that was key to better managing the numerous projects that comprised PWP. With six years of personally working with ProgramNet’s team, I would not hesitate to recommend ProgramNet for any project that requires expertise in data collection, management and reporting processes."

“As a Program Manager, I rely on proven processes, resources, and solution tools. ProgramNet fits that need and has been a valuable partner in past and present programs. I have found that ProgramNet is responsive and has a solid background in delivering quality, customizable solutions.  They also do a good job of thinking and advising toward future needs."

"I have worked with Mike Kirschbaum and ProgramNet for over five years as they developed the last two document control programs that I was involved with.  Both were web based SharePoint operations and both were exceptional.  Their finest qualities were:

1. Their simplicity.
2. Their flexibility.

We refined the program used on our Wichita, Kansas project as our client evolved his needs.  We were able to keep the records for 14 construction contracts on a  consistent path which is no easy task."
