DALLAS -- QuikTrip Corp. will implement Projectmates software from Systemates to manage its new store construction and renovation program.
"QuikTrip did an extensive review of the project management systems, demoing six to eight different software packages," said Pete Conlin, QuikTrip's construction manager leading the implementation effort. "The two things that caught our attention with Projectmates were the ease of use and feel of the dashboard."
QuikTrip will benefit from the nearly 200 out-of-the-box, enterprise-level reports in Projectmates, including many cost tracking and scheduling reports that can be set up for automatic delivery.
"Executives and supervisors will be able to view the status of any aspect of any project in a moment's notice. They will be able to see a project's total cost at any given time," said Conlin. "Our construction managers will be able to manage more projects with less time utilizing the online bidding system, contract administration, RFIs and change order modules."
Projectmates provides true two-way bidding, and QuikTrip can post bids and supporting documents like drawings and specifications for bidders to download, saving considerable money in printing costs alone, the vendor reported. In addition to managing Q&A and addenda, QuikTrip will also be able to receive and compare bid submissions all within Projectmates.
Training and implementation of Projectmates has already started. "We feel even more confident in our choice of Projectmates software due to the excellent customer service we have and are currently receiving during this implementation process. Our queries are many and the responses are very timely. We could not ask for better cooperation," said Conlin.
