Often times more important than the accounting, are all of the spokes in the wheel that is the project. Each spoke represents employees, equipment, sub-contractors, suppliers, engineers, architects, distributors, and documents associated with the job.

Venture is a single solution that allows you to better manage all spokes in the wheel ensuring you and your staff are up to date and staying on top of the project.

Documents

Any builder will tell you that managing the paperwork on a job can be a nightmare. Venture has a document management that allows for one point of contact for all users to scan documents, associated the documents to the project and store those documents. Other features include document markup, folder discussions and takeoff.

So, there are a lot of programs that track documents, but how many can do the following:

  • Monitor who has opened, downloaded or edited a document
  • Automatically send project notifications based on your defined rules
  • Maintain a complete audit trail of changes
  • Offer tools to your team such as electronic takeoff

People

Venture was designed and built for the construction industry and construction people. Manage the contacts for each project, prequalify subs and vendors, maintain information about subs (including financial background, safety record, bonding and insurance).

Venture’s Smart Address Book helps organize your contacts. View a basic snapshot of each contact to know if:

  • The contact is an architect, subcontractor, owner, user, general contractor or customer
  • What kind of work does this organization perform?
  • Where do they work? Do they have multiple offices?
  • Are they a certified MBE, DBE or WBE?
  • Are they a union shop?
  • What is their bond limit and do they have insurance and are they state insured?

Communication

Venture automatically logs and records not only project notifications but team responses as well. You have full visibility into project activity and maintain a complete archive of project communications. Venture’s automatic audit trail instantly tracks project communications and gives you instant insight into which documents people have viewed, downloaded or printed. The next time you need to report on project status, Venture puts the information you need in your hands.

Management

The goal of the Venture software is to allow for better management of the projects. Project managers can view updates, make changes, create notifications and correspondence, and manage internal staff. What better way to oversee all aspects of a project than use the Venture system.
