Paskr Project Management Suite Software


 

Paskr allows construction firms to take control of their entire operation with the convenience of an Internet client. Delivered as an on-demand offering, Paskr has amassed an impressive user base that includes over 17,000 contractors that have completed thousands of projects using the software. The fact that the software is delivered as an on-demand offering means that firms can purchase only the software they need to use and can access the software from anywhere they desire. After start-up and implementation costs are covered, the fee is volume based with a modest hosting fee attached. Paskr also offers implementation that can be completed in only a few days.

In addition to adding convenience to project management, the software also allows for greater collaboration between the multiple entities involved in a single project. Construction firms can share project designs and schedules between key players such as the engineers, architects, and subcontractor. The software offers estimating, project management, and bid management applications to manage a firm’s construction projects. Both the bid management and project management applications can be purchased separately but the estimating application only comes with the suite.

The project management suite provides all aspects of subcontractor management - from bid management to sub billing, as well as owner and architect management - from bid proposals to owner billing. Additionally, the software improves collaboration between the general contractor and the project team through RFIs, submittals, punchlists, meeting minutes, daily logs and scheduling as well as collaboration between your project managers and accountants through real time budget updates, time cards and sub-billing approval/pass off.

We often find ourselves recommending the software to construction firms that have up to $50 million in operating revenue and come from construction manager, general contractor, and design and build trades.

It does take need a little learning curve in order to implement.

Recommendations

Carefully research the products you are looking at. We thought we had but quickly found out that the other product had numerous flaws because although it had most of the same features it was not all integral. It had separate modules for each function. This made it very difficult to use because there were separate data bases for each user. Paskr is one database for all users on your system.

PASKR has the ability to import all of the sub billing into QuickBooks even if you don't have your vendor loaded into QuickBooks just yet. We like the budget importing option into QB which allows us to be more efficient in a team environment. We also opted to import the item list so that we can effectively cost code all of invoices. And, invoices in QuickBooks that were previously coded with the old QB cost codes were very easy to correct manually. Over all the experiences we've had with PASKR have been excellent.

Well, being a new customer and since our entire set up is new we want the training program to be a little more tailored. It's not so much the software but the need for training many employees who are all at different levels. After speaking with some of our "new-bees" we have all concurred that we need the training on the go type program on not really prior to all of our necessary applications. Because as you may very well know, it's much easier to retain something as you need the information. If you don't need the information right then, it's most likely not going to be retained.

Recommendations

Tailor your training programs for very busy office set ups so that employees can actually retain what they've learned, especially if they've never used the software system before.

They have thought of almost everything. I wish I would have had this ten years ago. The support team has bent over backwards to make sure we understand and get the most out of the system. I'm not sure about other companies, but Paskr really wants you to know how to use their system. Although they do web conferences and you can watch the recorded versions on you own, they don't leave you to figure it all out on your own. That's nice. I like that.

The chat support isn't always available. I would like to have vendors bill against a PO, but there is a workaround for that. Plus, I think that they are working on this feature.

Recommendations

It's a great product, especially for the price. I'm almost over the learning curve, and I love it. It will save our company so much time, and it's a great way to keep all of our project information in one place.

I have to be careful setting up cost codes. After you use them, you cannot change them. There are a few glitches that are being worked out. There's too much clicking with mouse; it needs more hotkeys. They need to fix the sales tax issues.

Be very careful when setting up cost codes and putting in your vendors.

Low upfront cost. The Paskr fee is captured at the project level and not with general overhead. No long term contracts. Customer Service is over the top. All calls and emails are returned in an expeditious time frame. The learning curve is minimal. Paskr is as easy to use as any app i have on my iPad. Customization of software available with their programming team for a minimal cost. Reports generate critical information to our management team that we were never able to run before. Total oversight of your company employees. Great document control system from bidding to closeout.

We are a General Contractor in the Chicago area that was looking for a system that would keep our projects organized and eliminate repetitive entering and incorrect billings. I was looking to find something that could organize the information we receive from our subcontractor’s proposals to the owner’s contracts and the billings that I produce to the owners. I wanted to be able to store documents that were accurate and easy to find.

Paskr Project Management actually exceeded our expectations. The database they have formulated is so complex and every item that is entered into Paskr interfaces with the next document needed. Billing is so simple now and all of my subcontractors love using this system. For them, it eliminates all billing questions, change order questions, and waiver questions. We have received great support from Paskr. They offer great training on the program basics, and their support is there when ever I need it. I would recommend this system very highly and our company and staff all feel the same way.

Our company is a small, woman-owned business. We are a commercial general contractor specializing in tenant build-outs. Prior to Paskr we were using Excel to track costs and estimates. This caused multiple entries of information throughout the jobs. We were also not tracking subcontracts and change orders with any consistency. Subcontractors and suppliers were billing on multiple types of forms without a purchase order or subcontract to back it up. Binders of paper were kept to organize project documents.

When we first started looking for a new program, cost was an issue. There were many different options available. However, a small company like ours could not afford the start-up and annual renewal costs.

By investing in Paskr, we committed to new procedures that streamlined our processes and kept them consistent across all project managers. The financial investment was affordable and ongoing costs are based on use.

I have personally been using Paskr for over five years. I was new to construction project management when I first started using it. In that regard, Paskr taught me the proper progression of a construction project. It aided in keeping the job organized and forced subcontractors to sign subcontracts prior to billing.

With Paskr being Internet-based, there is no software to purchase or maintain; I can access Paskr from any computer that has access to the Internet. The owner of our company can "look in" on all jobs to see how they are progressing and with the consistency of the way all jobs are handled, it limits the number of questions.

The company's customer support is remarkable. Whether it is a username/password request or an error message, the response time is close to immediate.

Overall Paskr has provided us a solution for tracking documents and costs for our projects. It has also allowed owners and architects to easily see information regarding the project that keeps them informed. Having this ability with Paskr has helped us "seal the deal" with owners.

I have been a CFO for a commercial general contractor that uses PASKR for four years now, and have realized the benefits of this system.

-PASKR streamlines the process.

-PASKR provides full disclosure of financial information for each project on a real-time basis.

-PASKR reduces mistakes and thereby increases profits.

-PASKR has enabled both the accounting department and the project management team to work more efficiently.

After PASKR is implemented and employees are appropriately trained to use the software, we had a lot more success ensuring that important deadlines were met and budgets stayed on target, greatly increasing our ROI. PASKR can't replace a dedicated or experienced project manager, but it can help make him significantly more productive and allow him to manage more projects at one time.

As head of the accounting department, I have significantly more confidence with my financial forecasts because I can access all projects on a daily basis. I also have real-time access to pending/approved change orders for our owners and subcontractors. I can also hold my project managers accountable for the post buy-out budget, and easily track overruns.

Prior to implementing PASKR, the month-end closing process consisted of tracking down each project manager and discussing every single expected future costs and change order. I had to rely on the project manager to fully disclose the financial information. With PASKR, all of that information is readily available online.

One of my favorite processes within PASKR is the subcontractor billing process. Subcontractors represent 70%-90% of a general contractor's costs. PASKR provides added audit protection because it requires a subcontractor to sign his subcontract agreement before he is allowed to submit a pay application for a project. Also, it will ONLY allow a subcontractor to bill up to the amount of his contract, plus or minus any approved change orders. Over-billing by a subcontractor doesn't exist with PASKR.

My next favorite process within PASKR is the owner billing process. The project managers build the original schedule of values, and monthly create invoices for the owners based upon the percentage of work completed. All the accounting department needs to do at that point is review the owner pay app, notarize it, and distribute it to the appropriate parties. No extra Excel spreadsheets or wasted time trying to get the information from the forever-busy project manager.

I love being able to access any document (contracts, change orders, correspondence, drawings, etc.) from any computer at any time for any project. I don't even want to think about life in the construction industry without PASKR.

As a woman-owned company trying to expand and grow our business, we were looking into many project management programs to help us manage our workflow. After numerous demonstrations of different systems, our company decided to go with Paskr.

Paskr is easy to use, and works great for small to large projects alike. The customer support is one of the best available, answering any questions that may arise.

Paskr has really changed the way we operate our construction projects. Before Paskr, we would have to write contracts, price work, track changes, and send invitations along with various other tasks by using different programs from Microsoft. Once these items were done, we would then print out and try to organize files to make sure all documentation was kept. We can now do all of the items above online and from anywhere. We store them on Paskr’s website and allow our clients access to certain files. It is very convenient to have access to any file you need with a few mouse clicks.

Our project managers are no longer dependent on an assistant for tasks that Paskr makes easy. This has saved the company money by eliminating a position that is no longer needed, and making our project managers more efficient when running or bidding projects. Paskr offers templates of most documents we need, that we can modify slightly without having to type a tremendous amount of additional words.

Another benefit is that our project managers are less likely to make mistakes than the assistant inputting data, because the project manager knows the project better and can make sure to protect the company with proper wording. And, because this does not take a lot of time with Paskr, it is very easy for project managers to do this.

We purchased Paskr about 4 years ago, and our tenant division has been using it ever since. We start the bidding process with Paskr, and we use the system all the way through to billing. It is our project managers' lifeline, and assures that critical items are not missed. It protects from mistakes by tying the contracts to the bidding documents. The software does not allow sub-contractors to bill changes that are not first approved by us, or that have not been approved by the owner. Paskr takes us from start of project to the end, including close-out documentation. It then stores all of that information for us or the clients to review.

In my opinion, project managers are only as good as their system. Paskr has been a way for our company to reduce mistakes and create more efficient project managers. More efficient project managers and less mistakes equals a more profitable company. In other words, Paskr increases our profits.

Our bottom line: Paskr works well for flow construction.

Our company has been using Paskr for approximately two years and we have been extremely pleased with our experience. Paskr took us to a completely new level in project management. Previously, we used two different PM systems. One was integrated with our accounting system and the other was not. Paskr made these two programs look like dinosaurs. Paskr is written by project managers for project managers. It encourages me to have a disciplined approach to how we execute our projects and it keeps other personnel out of our accounting system, unlike many other project management systems.

Implementation took us approximately one month and the Paskr team has been quick to respond to any question we have had along the way.

What used to take me an entire day getting a project bought out, now only takes me about two hours. Paskr has kept me from hiring another project manager. So without a doubt it has paid for itself again and again in the length of time we have used it.

Its internet based approach and paperless qualities have saved my time and money. I can use Paskr anywhere and anytime and I have recommended it no less than one dozen times since I purchased it.
