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.

For the most part, the site is very user friendly and has saved us time and money over the years by simplifying and organizing steps required to complete a project.

Likes Least

Our site has been shut down several times without notice after payment was not received by the due date, even though it was sent in a timely manner. Our CFO prefers to issue paper checks, and there should be more of a grace period, or at least a phone call before the site is shut down. This has been an inconvenience on several occasions. There is also some minor "clunkiness" to the site, though Paskr has worked to make improvements. I prefer the old user name system, where users could select their user name, versus using their e-mail addresses. Some of the menus are also very close together and it's difficult to hover over the correct menu without opening up the drop down for the adjacent menu (beside, above or below the intended drop down menu).

Recommendations

It's difficult, if not impossible to find a product that will fit every single need of the customer. I would recommend identifying a list of "must have" features and then comparing the different products to see which most closely meets those needs. For us, Paskr was the solution that worked best for us, and we have been pleased with it over the past 5-1/2 years of business.

The absolute best part of PASKR for us it the sub and owner billing. I can do owner billings in just a few minutes now where before it would take a few hours. Also the Sub billing is a great feature and works well with our interal account practices.

What I like most about the product is that it is pretty intuitaive and user friendly. I have also always gotten great costumer service and support. They go above and beyond.

Look and see how much time you are spending doing most of your projects tasks. Then look at the time saving that it will bring and how much more your employees can accomplish in the same amount of time.

As with any software, if you want to use it to the fullest capability, one needs to "stay within the lines." It's strength is also a weakness. Limited flexibility.

Recommendations

The system will streamline your efforts, reduce errors, may help you reduce or redirect staffing. The more you use the system the better you get and the greater you benefit. Best tech support I have every experienced, with any software from any company - ever.

Paskr in general is a great software, it does take time to learn the ins and outs of this software and a year later we still learn more. The Team at Paskr is constantly upgrading things to make the GC lifes easier. I believe firmly because they all have lived our life before Paskr. The understand the ups and downs and frustrations that comes with the life of General Contractor.
The support team at Paskr is second to none. They help anytime of the day or night and never are upset for having to do so. The Paskr team really believes in the product and wants the General Contractor to succeed. They are fantastic!

I dont have bad things to day about the Paskr product. The issues we have is trying to get our subcontractors on board. Thats not a Paskr issue, they even offer to talk with our subcontractors to help them. Change is difficult for a lot of older generation contractors but when they do engage in Paskr they realize that they also save money by using the system.The ones that do love it.

Recommendations

Look no farther..this system does everything you need and then some. We looked at all systems out there and none compare. Last year our company had 1050% growth and there is NO WAY we kept up with all that growth without Paskr and the Team over there. I attribute a lot of our success last year to Paskr.

- The billing and approval process for the subcontractors to bill completely electronically. It makes the process quick and painless once the subs do it once!
- The ability to send bid invitations and track the process.
- Customer service! I always have the help I need when something is not working or I need help figuring something out. LOVE the Chat window!

There are often "hiccups" that happen (random mistakes in billing numbers, etc). Sometimes it is user error...sometimes it has to be fixed by the tech team, I have to clear my browser history, make sure I'm using the correct browser, or its just the "the internet being wonky" that day. It can be frustrating and keep me from getting things done when it needs to be done, but I always have help when I need it, and it's usually prompt.

Sorting Drawings - I hate that you have to move just one at a time. It takes for ever!! Would be great to move groups of them at once. :)

Take the time learn the software and make it work for you.

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.
