Revolutionizing Construction Management: Harnessing the Power of Cost and Schedule Integration
In the construction industry, discussions at every conference center around well-funded general contractors (GCs) and large engineering, procurement, and construction services (EPC) companies that have the resources to track project delivery using a dedicated project controls staff. However, this level of resource allocation is often unattainable for most organizations. This is where Relay, a modern project controls platform, enters the scene to modernize project controls for the commercial construction industry.
Understanding Project Controls
Project controls serves as the real-time link between on-site activities and the world of accounting. This critical connection ensures that project costs and schedules remain appropriate while providing management with an accurate, up-to-date assessment of project status and requirements. However, implementing effective project controls is notoriously challenging, as it demands a deep understanding of both field activities and cumbersome accounting systems. Furthermore, many contractors struggle to connect data systems across stakeholders, leading to project controls being too time-consuming and labor-intensive to implement effectively.
Enter Relay, a modern project controls software specifically designed to overcome these challenges. By leveraging untapped sources of data, Relay creates a self-reinforcing project data environment that connects your data systems, enabling you to efficiently plan and track project costs and schedules in real-time.
The Relay Advantage
Relay users can quantitatively measure project performance without adding to their existing workflows. This innovative software solution enables organizations to reliably align project delivery expectations with real-time status, internal estimates and subcontractor commitments, while sourcing conceptual estimating from actual past project data. By providing a common data environment, Relay translates real-world activities into project outcomes in terms of dollars and time, facilitating more accurate resource forecasting. Moreover, Relay seamlessly integrates with your existing accounting systems and scheduling software.
