August 5, 2009--ConEst Software Systems' JobTrac project management software (Version 4), features a new operating platform and updated user interface, along with expanded functionality for all construction trades.
Major enhancements include a .NET platform for improved deployment and serviceability, reliability, performance, and data security; SQL database for managing data on personal computers, minicomputers, and mainframes; improved construction project management capabilities, including purchasing, labor and inventory management.
"Our customer-focused development process is reflected in this release with enhancements that address the entire project management process," says ConEst president George Hague.
The JobTrac system provides tools for managing day-to-day project operations--from tracking project submittals, change orders and material purchase orders, to scheduling labor and project payment applications. Transmittals, e-mails, phone conversations, daily work reports, time cards and incident reports are all logged within the project. Material requisitions and purchase orders can be managed by task. A built-in Gantt chart is used to establish start/finish dates as well as assign dependencies and constraints for all the project tasks.
As the project proceeds, JobTrac will track and compare the budgeted estimate costs versus actual costs. JobTrac will also produce a schedule of values used for payment application and will automatically generate a payment application based upon the percentage of progress . Customers can also use the free ConEst FTP site to transmit their submittals and large files.
