Press release date: Oct 31, 2017

Projectmates to be used by Conroe ISD to manage construction projects; the award-winning software will be instrumental in ensuring project success.

RICHARDSON, TEXAS - OCTOBER 31, 2017 Projectmates by Systemates, Inc. will be implemented for Conroe ISD to help capture and retain campus data as well as centralize workflow processes for billings and capital planning for future projects and bond programs.

Conroe ISD will be expanding their capital construction projects with Projectmates as the primary platform for scheduling, document management, and bond management. With over 40 built-in tool modules that can collectively manage the full lifecycle of a project, Conroe ISD will utilize their new software platform to manage its bond projects from capital planning all the way through construction, grand opening, as well as maintenance/renovation.

The capturing and centralizing of essential campus data for multiple projects is crucial for having successful projects. Projectmates offers the ability to access and reference documents and drawings whenever and wherever the necessity arises. Projectmates also has a native mobile app that users can have full access to all project files, tasks, and responsibilities regardless of location. Projectmates acts as an all-in-one platform for owners, executives, and project managers alike to collaborate easily - increasing efficiency, accountability, and productivity while simultaneously reducing costs.

Easy to use capital planning software is crucial for school districts who are granted bonds. The capital improvement module within Projectmates will enable Conroe ISD to track and maintain their capital projects and funding sources. Multiple funds can be created and grouped while balances can be followed within Projectmates construction project management software.

Instead of having to continuously update and maintain spreadsheets that can only be accessed by one person, Conroe ISD will have the ability to have multiple people work and collaborate with up-to-date information as commitments and pay applications are entered and approved within Projectmates.

“Projectmates provided the ability to look at construction projects and existing campuses from the Owner’s perspective while also having all the necessary tools for active construction project management and scheduling, and all at a very competitive cost.” Easy Foster Administrative Director of Planning/Construction for Conroe ISD.

Some project challenges Conroe ISD had previously experienced before partnering with Projectmates included keeping records in a controlled and regimented format. Another challenge for Conroe ISD was the lack of ability to maintain access to the data within their internal network, including the lack of knowledge for any outside team members to be able to access and upload current data. Projectmates helped to centralize project data and increase collaboration while offering mobile access to real-time information.
