HeadsUp iCPM Scheduling Software


 

Since 2000, HeadsUp iCPM has provided integrated bid solicitation, scheduling, field reporting, contract/reference document management and budgeting/cost management to many construction firms.

Because HeadsUp iCPM is cloud-based, the system requires no hardware or IT staff for support or to install upgrades; HeadsUp releases a new, updated version every two months at no charge. With iCPM, a single staff member can prepare and send bid solicitations to several thousand vendors in just a few hours. This includes the scope, drawings and specifications.

iCPM also facilitates collaboration. Users can create their own folders in iCPM, dragging and dropping documents and files straight from their hard drive, which can then be accessed by the team. RFIs have automatic return links so that everyone's email responses and documents are centralized into a single location. In fact, all emails and project-related documents that come through Outlook can be routed straight to the project. Critical documents can be accessed, signed digitally and then sent out with just a few clicks.

The system works for building owners, construction managers, design/build firms, engineers, general contractors, and real estate developers with revenues ranging from $5 million to over a billion.

In response to the changing needs of our clients, we have evolved into a third generation, full-range professional design/build organization. We work hand in hand with Studio 109 Designs, LLC on all our projects to provide financial institutions the very best in design/build services. As we grow, we want to stay current with industry products that assist us in providing the best services to our customers. We began exploring better communication and management software in 2004. After choosing HeadsUp iCPM, we find they keep improving their products and services so that after almost 7 years, we feel like we remain up to date. We are pleased with their software, and in particular their quick responses to questions or needs we have.

Design Structures, with locations in Middleton, Wisconsin and The Dalles, Oregon, is a commercial and industrial design-build construction firm. Our principals have over 200 years of combined experience in the design-build construction marketplace.

Managing design/build projects in areas several thousand miles apart started us looking for a project management system that would improve our commutations, bridging the distance, and help all team members keep on top of all projects.

HeadsUp iCPM provided the answer. Not only were they web-based and had the product features we wanted; they were extremely helpful in our implementation and training. They continue to do a great job of supporting us whenever we have a need.

We are the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, and we serve more than 420,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County. The city of Memphis receives Federal Home Investment Partnership grants to improve the efficiency of aging homes. The city elected MLGW to implement these grants.

MLGW needed a bid solicitation system, which would allow them to document home conditions, request bids, and select contractors to make these homes more energy efficient. To do this; we inspect the home, take pictures of deficient items, and write up required action. Weekly we send this package of 10 homes to over 100 contractors and request on-line bids for each home. Usually, the contractor with the lowest bid for all 10 homes is chosen.

We selected HeadsUp Bid Solicitation to accomplish this task. Since May of 2009, over 2000 homes have participated in this program. We are very pleased as HeadsUp handles the entire process, other than our gathering the information and photographs, electronicallyIt has been a very successful program.

Located in West Monroe, LA Mann's Construction concentrates on remodeling, school additions, and smaller GC projects. We usually have between 5 and 10 projects going at one time. We were looking for a system that pulls together our documents and field reports. We also wanted a bidding system.

After reviewing several options and calling some references, we selected HeadsUp iCPM. Our selection was a good one. We use almost all parts of their system, with the exception of scheduling. We found the system easy to get up and running and give them 5 stars for training and support. We also appreciate that they continually improve the system throughout the year and we don’t have to do anything when that occurs. They send out an announcement and several days later – there is the new system.

We were looking for a way to manage our work crews and evaluate their performance. We pre-manufacture most of our product and then need to know which crew will be available to assemble it when the building comes out of our manufacturing facility.

HeadsUp iCPM adapted a multi-Gantt chart that helps us see at a glance where and for how long our crews are assigned. We also pick up time for each crew and compare that against our standards to evaluate how well they are performing and to identify ways we can improve the erection process. We have used HeadsUp iCPM for over 4 years and are pleased with both the product and service.

Stanbrooke Custom Homes is a scattered lot custom homebuilder in Fife, Washington. We take pride in building specifically what the homeowner wants. Historically building about 100 homes a year, we were looking for project management software that would help us know the status of the many homes being worked on at the same time.

We selected HeadsUp iCPM and it has been a good choice. It helped us cut our average construction time by 45 days a home. It helped in the office also. We have one person who spends between 30-60 minutes a day and about ½ day on Friday with the software – about a day a week – as opposed to what was a five day a week job for one person before.

Morette Company is based out of Pensacola and has been in business since 1978.

We had been running an old version of Expedition but wanted something more up-to-date. Our needs were pretty straightforward – documents, schedules, etc. Ease of use was very important. We wanted to “walk up to it and start using it”.

We are pleased with our decision of selecting HeadsUp and impressed with the high level of customer service and the true concern that is expressed each time we have a need or question.

Elzinga & Volkers is locally owned and operated out of Holland, Michigan.

In 2008, we were searching for a project management system to enhance communications between the field and office, have scheduling in a centralized location, improve the bidding process and provide owner access to view the schedule and pictures.

HeadsUp has met these needs. In addition, they enhance the system every couple of months, so the system becomes more capable as time goes on, and they do a great job at support.

We found HeadsUp to meet these needs and use almost all of the system except scheduling and site reports. We use the bidding, RFI’s, submittals, contracts and PO’s. We are very happy with the system and their support.

We are a general contractor company in Chicago and specialize in commercial office build-outs both small and large.

Signature Construction is a division of Pedcor Companies in Carmel, Indiana. On average, Signature has about a dozen active residential projects and 4 or 5 commercial. Our annual revenue is around $100,000 million. Since 1986, Signature has constructed over 14,000 multi-family housing units in 11 states throughout the Midwest.

Back in 2005, we were looking for a system to improve our communications between our scheduling and field personnel.

Overall we like the product and feel it is a benefit to our company and operations. The ability to stay up-to-date with the daily reports and real-time schedule at any time, from any computer with Internet access is one of the key factors to our success. Our ability to save project templates is a big help in getting a project started. Our schedules are huge, due to our product and delivery method, and for the most part, iCPM has allowed us to maintain a schedule with greater detail much more easily than our previous method. I really like the system and appreciate the excellent customer service. I certainly feel that they are looking out for our best interests and pay attention to us personally. I don’t feel like an account number in my correspondence with iCPM.

We began looking for a project management system because we wanted to bring everything into a single formal system. We wanted great document control for RFI’s, submittals, and other logs. Budgeting and cost controls would also be a nice to have.

We are pleased with HeadsUp. We use most of their offerings, including bid solicitation, scheduling, field reporting and document management.

We are a small professional design group specializing in civil, structural, and geo-technical engineering services. As a growing company, and in an effort to expand business opportunities, we looked for an economical software solution in order to integrate our current system of four individual applications: time keeping, project management, document control and financial software programs, into one self-supporting program.

Our search led us to HeadsUp Technologies (v2011.3.5.1). After speaking with a HeadsUp representative, we determined that we could effectively transition from our current system (used to create financial spreadsheets, track documents, manage payroll, and schedule projects) into one web-based program. Furthermore, through the company’s customer support, we would have the ability to customize any of their existing reports into formats we already are accustomed to. We purchased HeadsUp Technologies in February, 2011, and after a few short training sessions we began implementing the program.

HeadsUp is user-friendly, easy-to-use. Our team learned to navigate and use HeadsUp iCPM very quickly. Within weeks we started customizing reports and seeing results. Project tracking has become more efficient and reporting has become more accurate. We have reduced the potential for error due to double data entry and cross referencing between programs.

One of the greatest benefits has been the ability to utilize the employee timekeeping entries and estimate/budget summary to generate daily reports that track our actual labor costs against budgeted labor costs. This allows our Project Managers to review and manage resources on a day-by-day basis, and ensure we complete projects on time and under budget.

All in all, we are very satisfied with HeadsUp Technologies and their services, and we look forward to future product enhancements.

Owen Signature Homes is a general contractor, specializing in custom homes in the Bay Area in California.

We decided to incorporate HeadsUp into our organization because we were finding a disconnect between creating contracts (using Excel) and integrating them into our accounting software. Mistakes were appearing more regularly and we needed a program that directly synced the contracts.

The staff at HeadsUp worked with me for HOURS to train me on the system and created templates for our contracts that were easy and efficient for us to use. We currently use v2011.3.5.1 and it has been working very well for us. I find the system to be very user-friendly and it has been easy to train others.

We have used HeadsUp for almost 4 years now, and still find it effective and efficient.

Working for a General Contractor we use HeadsUp primarily for RFI's and Daily Reports. Before HeadsUp iCPM we were doing everything using Excel spreadsheets. This system allows us to document daily activities and maintain a log of critical project documents. Upon initial purchase of HeadsUp, we received a walk-through presentation via teleconference to help us get started.

Technical support is very responsive and knowledgeable; I can always count on them to help me navigate through the software.
