PASKR Overview

The "Project Management Suite" produces all the information that you need to start a project for your accounting department such as budgets using the information inputted during the Bid phase.

The "Project Management Suite" compliments your existing estimating and take-off programs. You receive sub quotes via the internet. Type in your estimates into the bid compilation for self performing tasks. Record your take-off notes online as you prepare your Quote. Every detail is captured and ready on subsequent documents such as contracts.

Paskr becomes a paperwork valet and assistant when you are the successful bidder. Project Manager's suddenly have a virtual assistant to complete all of the back office work required to actually build a project. Change Orders, RFP's, RFI's, Subcontracts, Budgets and Purchase Orders all are only mouse clicks away and always parked in the right file.

Nothing can provide the speed, automation and access to vital project information in such a dynamic real time work center as the internet.

PASKR project management

Used Daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I've been using this management software for most of the last 6 years. Overall it is very helpful and makes me more efficient managing projects. There have been some recent changes that I feel have taken away some valuable functionality, but they have been very willing to listen and explain the reasons for the changes. They are also willing to look at my concerns and consider restoring some of the functionality that was lost.

Pros

It makes project management more efficient. I don't have to enter the same information over and over on various documents. It also gives multiple reports to track a project and watch the changes in profitability. It also is easy to prepare bills each month.

Cons

The scheduling module is very difficult to use in my opinion and the connect between scheduling and daily job logs could be better. Having to approve each schedule change individually is very time consuming, especially while the screen refreshes

Response from Paskr

Thank you for your comments. You spoke about some of the features you missed and we listened. We have recently added the functionality to be able to invite the subs by cost code and we will have a customer care representative contact you shortly to show you how to do this. We look forward to many more years of working together.

Paskr is the best web based PM software for small to medium sized contractors on the market

Over the years we have been using Paskr, they continue to improve our experience. From the field, all project information is easily accessible and daily reporta are a breeze because of the mobile apps. In the office, it is a powerful solution from project conception to closeout, handling and keeping all contracts, POs, change orders, submittals, drawings and drawing changes. All of our subcontractors present their bids, submittals, execute contracts, change orders and submit pay apps and lien releases in the system. Our AE folks respond to submittals and RFIs with ease. Its all paperless and immediate.
I love that a change order can be made and executed within 5 minutes, even from the field. I love that RFIs can be made in the field and responded to by the required parties, even from a smart phone. And Paskr keeps up with all of it electronically significantly reducing clerical time.

Pros

Portability, access from anywhere, anytime, and that it limits the bells and whistles and focuses on project management needs.

Cons

Doing drawing changes in the field is a little cumbersome, but maybe its not meant for just anyone to easily make drawing changes since they are official documents.

I have been a CFO for a commercial general contractor that uses PASKR for four years now, and have realized the benefits of this system.

-PASKR streamlines the process.
-PASKR provides full disclosure of financial information for each project on a real-time basis.
-PASKR reduces mistakes and thereby increases profits.
-PASKR has enabled both the accounting department and the project management team to work more efficiently.

After PASKR is implemented and employees are appropriately trained to use the software, we had a lot more success ensuring that important deadlines were met and budgets stayed on target, greatly increasing our ROI. PASKR can't replace a dedicated or experienced project manager, but it can help make him significantly more productive and allow him to manage more projects at one time.

As head of the accounting department, I have significantly more confidence with my financial forecasts because I can access all projects on a daily basis. I also have real-time access to pending/approved change orders for our owners and subcontractors. I can also hold my project managers accountable for the post buy-out budget, and easily track overruns.

Prior to implementing PASKR, the month-end closing process consisted of tracking down each project manager and discussing every single expected future costs and change order. I had to rely on the project manager to fully disclose the financial information. With PASKR, all of that information is readily available online.

One of my favorite processes within PASKR is the subcontractor billing process. Subcontractors represent 70%-90% of a general contractor's costs. PASKR provides added audit protection because it requires a subcontractor to sign his subcontract agreement before he is allowed to submit a pay application for a project. Also, it will ONLY allow a subcontractor to bill up to the amount of his contract, plus or minus any approved change orders. Over-billing by a subcontractor doesn't exist with PASKR.

My next favorite process within PASKR is the owner billing process. The project managers build the original schedule of values, and monthly create invoices for the owners based upon the percentage of work completed. All the accounting department needs to do at that point is review the owner pay app, notarize it, and distribute it to the appropriate parties. No extra Excel spreadsheets or wasted time trying to get the information from the forever-busy project manager.

I love being able to access any document (contracts, change orders, correspondence, drawings, etc.) from any computer at any time for any project. I don't even want to think about life in the construction industry without PASKR.

Overall we like the product. I think it could be more user friendly for sub-contractors and customers. The page for contractors seems more user friendly than the sub-contractor page, simpler is better for them. Also all customers want to be able to access their info from their phones through an app. All they really want to see are the daily logs, photos, schedule, and approve CO's, and most are on the go and not in front of a computer. As far as the features for us, we love them. It has definitely made us more organized, and we are tracking our budgets much better. It has also helped with protecting ourselves in making sure we were contracted properly and had all the correct paperwork.

Pros

Bid process, estimating, change order and rfi tracking, daily logs. There are still a lot of features we have not been able to try out yet.

Cons

Schedule (the feature is clunky, moving around the screen is difficult and it does not always update properly based on daily logs). Client interaction (not user friendly). Notifications, (I do not receive them anymore, and the clients are not receiving them either.

Response from Paskr

Brett, Thank you for your comments. We are currently updating the Subcontractor/Owner/Architect/Engineer portals. We will keep you updated on that release. The scheduling module is getting a face lift of features and functionality in the near future. We appreciate all your feedback to make that a better tool for all of our clients.

Paskr has really changed the way we operate our construction projects. Before Paskr, we would have to write contracts, price work, track changes, and send invitations along with various other tasks by using different programs from Microsoft. Once these items were done, we would then print out and try to organize files to make sure all documentation was kept. We can now do all of the items above online and from anywhere. We store them on Paskr’s website and allow our clients access to certain files. It is very convenient to have access to any file you need with a few mouse clicks.

Our project managers are no longer dependent on an assistant for tasks that Paskr makes easy. This has saved the company money by eliminating a position that is no longer needed, and making our project managers more efficient when running or bidding projects. Paskr offers templates of most documents we need, that we can modify slightly without having to type a tremendous amount of additional words.

Another benefit is that our project managers are less likely to make mistakes than the assistant inputting data, because the project manager knows the project better and can make sure to protect the company with proper wording. And, because this does not take a lot of time with Paskr, it is very easy for project managers to do this.

We purchased Paskr about 4 years ago, and our tenant division has been using it ever since. We start the bidding process with Paskr, and we use the system all the way through to billing. It is our project managers' lifeline, and assures that critical items are not missed. It protects from mistakes by tying the contracts to the bidding documents. The software does not allow sub-contractors to bill changes that are not first approved by us, or that have not been approved by the owner. Paskr takes us from start of project to the end, including close-out documentation. It then stores all of that information for us or the clients to review.

In my opinion, project managers are only as good as their system. Paskr has been a way for our company to reduce mistakes and create more efficient project managers. More efficient project managers and less mistakes equals a more profitable company. In other words, Paskr increases our profits.

Our bottom line: Paskr works well for flow construction.
