Dexter + Chaney has released what it terms "enhanced Project Management software for its 'Forefront' Construction Management software for plumbing, mechanical and hvacr contractors." Project Management, a fully integrated component of Forefront, is designed to document and track changes to a job'' original contract that might create a cost impact. Project Management's new features provide greater job control for busy project manager, adding to its existing capability to track Requests for Information (RFIs), submittals, transmittals, daily logs, and more.
Project Management's new change request system allows the user to create and submit change requests from documented RFIs and custom issues. (Custom issues are requests initiated by the owner or architect rather than the contractor, and include items such as owner directives and drawing revisions.) The change request system makes it easy to combine items along with a cost estimate, including subcontract change requests, and submit them to the owner for approval.
