Release of New Notification Manager Embedded With Construction Management Software
Reviewing notifications manager, which can be useful to set reminders with regards the work requirements and status. Thus makes the project less dependent.
- (1888PressRelease) November 30, 2016 - Brighton, UK - One of the biggest advantages a construction management software offers its users is the automation. Tasks can be set and reminders to the relevant parties can be sent at the right time. This makes the project less dependent on the fallible human memory, thereby making operations more reliable.
However, not all users need to be notified of everything. Also, everyone does not need to be reminded of every task. As the co-founder of BuilderStorm, Mr James Sandwick, puts it "no one wants hundreds of notifications coming as a text message every 2 minutes".
According to Mr Sandwick, BuilderStorm was built on the principles laid down by the UK government. The Building Information Modelling (BIM) guidelines are designed to streamline and improve the efficiency of the building industry. While this means the program keeps a track of all processes, it also means the notifications need to be managed.
"It all depends on your priorities", says Mr Sandwick, "If you have tasks that are high-priority, like filling up RFIs, then you would want those notifications coming to you immediately. Other tasks that are not super-urgent can be sent together as an email once a day. It's all customisable and totally user-friendly."
Indeed, BuilderStorm's new Notification Manager gives its users a great deal of control over what they get notified about, how they get notified about it, and when they get the notifications.
The three options of receiving notifications are emails, SMS text messages, and in-browser notifications. Based on the user's preferences and their perceived importance, the said notifications can be organised. This way, only the important notifications are sent urgently, while other notifications are sent as a daily email or not at all. The new Notification Manager even has a time parameter, where the users can set deadlines. The software will then notify the user of any pending deadline, ensuring none is missed.
The new notifications manager feature is great for high-priority tasks like RFIs and defect reporting. The program ensures that any Request for Information sent to another user will be responded to as soon as possible. Since RFIs are critical for the efficient progress of the project, it means fewer delays.
Even defect reports are processed and resolved quicker with the notification manager. The report is emailed to the relevant parties and the person or department responsible gets a notification. They can then work on correcting the issue and as soon as it is resolved, they can close the defect report.
"The new Notification Manager is a great way to ensure that human error does not delay your project", says Mr Sandwick. "Apart from eliminating errors, it also increases the user's efficiency, not just by reminding them of what they might have forgotten, but also by putting their mind at ease. Once you know that you have a reliable reminder system, you can focus your energy on the task at hand."
The increased flexibility offered by BuilderStorm's notification manager can indeed be a huge asset to any building company. It is perfect for companies of any size. A large company will find coordination between departments easier and quicker. A small company, on the other hand, will find that they do not need to hire a person specifically to keep track of the project's deadlines.
Having a virtual project manager makes it easy for every employee to devote their attention to their own tasks instead of worrying about remembering to keep track of others.
Built with the aim of making building projects more efficient and streamlined, BuilderStorm is a product that is taking the market by storm. In spite of being a relatively new software programme, it is rapidly becoming one of the most popular. Developed by David Lawrence and James Sandwick, experts in construction and IT respectively, this product is fully compliant with the BIM principles laid out by the UK government.
