Powerful Dashboards and Reports
With Primavera Contract Management, accurate and up-to-date information is always accessible. It provides role-based dashboards with key performance indicators (KPIs) and powerful reports. You gain visibility early, so you can prevent minor issues from becoming major problems. With a personal dashboard, you can review the latest project status, see new issues, and identify potential problems. With two clicks, you can access the project details necessary to make decisions and keep projects on schedule. Use any of the 150 standard reports—or create your own to track budgets, cost variances, and project changes—and then analyze comparative trends and cause and effect among multiple projects.
Track Accountability with Document Controls - Primavera Contract Management facilitates team interaction. Role-based views display action lists, alerts, and turnaround graphs that immediately identify
- Who is holding up the process
- When each deliverable was required
- If the delay will have an impact on the budget or the schedule
The ball-in-court (BIC) feature lets you clearly see who needs to act next within the approval workflow process.
With hundreds of submittals in progress, it's easy to let one or even several slip. Primavera Contract Management provides comprehensive tracking of every submittal to ensure that appropriate action is taken, submittals are approved, and contract-specified materials arrive on time and as ordered. Primavera Contract Management provides real-time information, so you can see where each submittal is in the approval process and know who is responsible for what and by when.
Maintain Supporting Documentation
Primavera Contract Management's Content Repository feature provides a structured and secure environment to store records associated with projects. The drawings log capability in Primavera Contract Management maintains and identifies drawings, specifications, and other supporting documentation, so you can meet contractual requirements and ensure the completion of your work. Tracking documents through the drawings log lets you keep records of all revisions and know who received what revisions and when. The drawings log also manages the distribution of drawings to make certain everyone has the latest drawings required to construct the building.
Shorten Submittal Approval Times
Primavera Contract Management accelerates design reviews and approvals. It also provides flexible workflow options for creating, sharing, and reviewing submittals in real time.
Reduce Turnaround Time for Information Requests
Documenting and managing changes are critical for successful projects. Primavera Contract Management organizes potential issues and gives project team members an opportunity to collaborate on RFIs, propose solutions, and communicate the final answer.
Master the Issues
It happens in every job. A problem, a misunderstanding, or a difference of opinion is discussed, reviewed, and debated, and eventually it affects people throughout the project with new or amended documents and weeks of involvement. With the issues management functionality in Primavera Contract Management, no issue goes unresolved or unrecorded. Documents are tied together to create an electronic file that compiles what happened and when and enables the project team to maintain an accurate history of events.
Comprehensive Change Management
Nothing is as predictable as the fact that changes occur throughout a construction project. Tracking, documenting, negotiating, getting paid, and making payments for changes are also part of the job.
Change Management Workflow Processing
Controlling changes involves notifying and coordinating affected project participants as well as containing the costs and schedule for the project. Primavera Contract Management provides an overview of each change—from the estimate phase to final approval—for both budgeted and committed costs. Because the change process in a project differs with the nature of the change and the company's process for recording and tracking changes, the change management functionality lets you create a customized workflow to meet the change management needs of your company.
Primavera Contract Management gives you a better way to track the change process, create supporting documentation, and analyze the financial and schedule effects a change may have at any stage in the negotiation process.
Flexible Approval Processing
Primavera Contract Management offers two types of approval processing: a standard process when simple approval is required based on the document's To and From vendors, and a configurable workflow routing process. Primavera Contract Management's document routing process is designed to be flexible enough to be compatible with an organization's standard business processes yet easy enough to use that companies can be up and running quickly.
Superior Job Cost Management
With Primavera Contract Management, you can analyze budgets and funding, review commitment documents, and record requisitions and invoices as they are received. The cost worksheet automatically collects and summarizes detailed cost elements from contracts, requisitions, changes, and purchase orders and then dynamically displays them so you can forecast project costs and simplify contract control.
Subcontractor Management and Control
The contracts functionality in Primavera Contracts Management improves contractor, vendor, and supplier management. Contract managers can create, manage, and review the status of a contract and the contractor's performance in one simple view. They can also verify that the contractor's insurance is current, contractor submissions have been delivered as specified, and payment requisitions have been submitted.
Primavera Contract Management facilitates the preparation and negotiation of monthly payment requisitions. It streamlines the process by consolidating contractor requisitions into monthly requisitions, dramatically reducing the time required to prepare and submit the requisition for payment.
Integrated Program Management
As construction projects have become increasingly complex, engineering and construction project managers are facing challenges that are more and more difficult. Projects have more subcontractors, more issues, and more owner requirements, along with liquidated damages and a host of other potential problems. In addition, competition for projects remains high. Many general contracting firms are still operating at record-thin margins. Every contractor knows what an over-budget project can do to the company's bottom line. Given the financial impact of changes to plans or schedules, construction projects today simply have no room for error.
