Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate Project Management
Designed to work the way you do. Project Management is straightforward and easy
to learn because electronic documents mirror the many paper documents still used
today. Project Management lets you keep the right people well informed at all
Centrally integrated data
Through integration with Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate accounting, estimating, and purchasing systems, you're able to issue and see all owner contracts, subcontracts, updated plans and drawings, change orders, purchase orders, meeting minutes, requests for information (RFIs), and other project-related documents. You can set up your job as early in a project as you wish, then renumber the job to fit company standards and release all information to accounting at a later date for review, approval, and use. And as new project information is entered in accounting or operations, all updates automatically appear in Project Management and all related accounting applications. With Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate, there's no need for duplicate data entry.
Real-time information for solid decisions
A centralized source of information is your assurance of having a complete and current picture of any project. For example, with the Job Overview inquiry or report you can instantly see the status of contracts, profit, billings, costs, cash, RFIs, and submittals all at once. There's no need to manually synchronize accounting and project management software. Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate makes it automatic. Project information is always current and there's no limit to what information can be shared — costs, budget revisions, change orders, forecasts, owner contracts, whatever you like.
Create, track, retrieve documents
Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate gives you the tools to create and track common project documents, such as RFIs, meeting minutes, submittals, and transmittals. Take a look at which RFIs haven't yet been approved and understand the potential impact of outstanding requests on a project's cost and schedule. The central database also lets you easily query across logs or jobs to review the status of any document. You always know what tasks remain, assuring that nothing falls through the cracks. And to make sure e-mail is an accessible part of the project record, there's the correspondence log feature. You're able to associate Microsoft Outlook e-mail (as well as Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel documents) to the Project Management centralized database.
Access to information
By using inquiries and reports you can delve into the details behind the numbers. If you're ever on the phone and need to know about the payment of an invoice, you can pull it up in a hurry to see exactly how and when it was paid. Plus, job cost reports can also contain unposted costs as well, so you know where you truly stand today.
