Seattle-based construction software developer Dexter + Chaney (www.dexterchaney.com) has released its new Spectrum Project Management software at the 2013 World of Concrete trade show this week in Las Vegas.
Spectrum Project Management is available as part of the suite of applications that comprise Dexter + Chaney’s Spectrum Construction Software product line.
According to John Chaney, Dexter + Chaney president and co-founder, “Project management is not one task performed in one location. It involves a continuous flow of work, data and documents that move from place to place and person to person. We’ve designed a complete system to help project managers handle the work, the documents, the communication and the people that comprise complex construction projects.”
Spectrum Project Management is cloud-based, requiring no software downloads and accessible from any device with a web browser. “Just like every other Spectrum application, Spectrum Project Management is 100 percent web-based,” Chaney said. “Users simply launch a web browser from anywhere they’re working to access all of the features and functionality of the software.”
What makes Spectrum Project Management unique is how it combines the tools and information that project managers need into a single application. “Project managers are at the center of a storm of data and documents,” said Mark Peltz, Dexter + Chaney product manager for construction operations software.
“Instead of using three, four or more applications to build a picture of project status, they can use Spectrum Project Management to combine financial and field information, manage people and documents, and track workflow from a single project log screen that eliminates the need to maintain multiple logs.”
The Spectrum Project Management application covers numerous project management functions, including job cost and progress reporting, project logging, submittal and RFI tracking, and project document storage and sharing.
