    What construction project management software/techniques do all of you use? Legal pad, spreadsheet or something more complex?

    My company produces web-based construction project management software but we're also curious what all of you use. Reply with your answers!

    I use wordstar on my C64. 2 mhz processor. It is not web based. But it has Bugs, no spiders.

    I've tried basecamp and google wave but I'm not sure wave is a project management software package.
    If you want to have ideas on the various project management software you can check project management alternatives here.

    I have recently get to know about this project management software called Procore. I haven't used it yet though.

    I've used Microsoft Project in the past, but for smaller projects its like buying a Greyhound bus for your daily commute. When we used it for bigger programs we had to hire a scheduler and other folks to gather data and keep it up to date.

    Most of the time what you need as a minimum is a good Gantt chart program and the ability to track and manage cost for each task. Many PM programs provide more features, but then you have to keep the data current to get the features to work right. For example, you can try to level personnel workload (plumber, framer, electrician, etc.) across jobs, but that requires detailed data on what skills are needed for each task, who has the skills, how much time of that skill is need on each job, when is it needed, and what job/task is each person already assigned to.

    We use Bridgit Bench as our project management software, it's a resource allocation management tool that enhance multiple aspects of construction management such as manpower planning, equipment and materials allocation, cost/budget and timeline estimation, and many more. You can learn more about it here https://www.bridgitsolutions.com/guide-construction-resource-management What we also love about Bridgit Bench is that it is easy to use on its own and easy to integrate as well with our already existing tech stack, thanks to its open API. I highly recommend them because it promotes collaborative effort through remote access which allow us to keep working on on-going projects despite the on-going pandemic.
