Noncompliance Notifications  The Construction Project Manager

For General Contract lump sum projects the job cost variance report can be used to report profit projections.

Warranty Management  The Construction Project Manager

This new module manages all warranty work during the warranty period. When a warranty call is received from the Owner it is assigned from a pop-up list to the Subcontractor or Supplier responsible for the repair. A Warranty Notification form is then printed and issued to the Subcontractor or Supplier. This form contains areas for the responsible party to enter the work completed and date completed. The form is then returned to the Owner and/or Contractor. A Warranty log can be printed showing all warranty items, or just items pending completion.

Improvement of Existing Modules  The Construction Project Manager

Various improvements have been made to the existing modules based on responses received from customer questionnaires.

Internet Access  The Construction Project Manager

Many of our current customers are accessing THE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER™ through the Internet by using Microsoft Windows Terminal Server or Citrix Metaframe. The Microsoft 2000 and XP Operating Systems are preloaded with Client access License to Microsoft Windows Terminal Server. Therefore, we are delaying release of a web based companion product of THE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGER™ due to new developments in Operating System Internet Access technology. This would potentially save our clients the cost of purchasing a special separate Internet Accessible version of TCPM™.
