The communication hub is outstanding for creating and tracking project comms, as well as being able to raise RFIs and variation requests in response to notices, it's so easy to use. It's been a big win for us. Grant Phillips (LEP Construction)

Key Features To Help You Work Smarter

All your key project information in one central location, for real-time, trackable project management.


Communication hub

Track all your communications in one place. Accessible to your whole team, ensuring continuity when someone is on holiday or leaves your company. This tool creates and tracks all your essential communications, including NTS, NTC, RFIs, variations, plus you can add public comments and private notes to self. Search and find what you’re looking for quickly & easily with references to variations or RFIs included in communication threads. Extensive reporting capabilities make this communication tracking a powerful dispute resolution tool.


Variation Management

The variation management function ensures your claims are consistent and compliant in their format (with reference numbers, time, date and any cost or time impact detailed). You can create variation requests easily and quickly within the communications hub by replying to a contract instruction. The variation requests are then automatically inserted into the progress claims to ensure they are never missed taking the pain out of document management. Full variation management is available, allowing you check status at any time, plus the system sends reminders to chase overdue actions on your behalf.


Retention Management

Make sure you are compliant with the Construction Contracts Act regulations. Retention values are automatically calculated within the progress claims function and held back from the payment certifications, with industry standard or custom time frames available. Reporting functionality allows you to instantly generate reports on all retentions your company holds (or has held for you) across all projects, on specific projects, or by specific company (subcontractor or contractor).
