KATONAH, N.Y. – During the process of developing Construction Pro Manager software (www.ConstructionProManager.com), Founder and President of Construction Pro Manager Andrew Arena learned how experience and drive can lead to process improvements and innovation for an industry and that these changes can be driven by a single person with a vision. His story is one of identifying a problem within an industry, envisioning the solution and developing the tools needed to solve the problem.
After 18 years of construction experience, working his way up the project management ladder serving as project manager and construction safety manager, Arena recognized what he perceived to be a big problem for project managers: The software they were using to store and retrieve project documentation was too complex, requiring considerable training and making it more, not less, difficult to find and share documents among all those involved in a construction project.
It became clear to him that the root cause of these complications was that real contractors in the construction industry had not been consulted to help in the development of the existing documentation software. With all due respect to software developers, project management is not a one-size-fits-all process that works the same across all industries.
With this realization, he decided to take back control of his industry – or at least the project documentation portion – and initiate the development of software that reflected the reality of construction project management as he knew it and had experienced it. This process led to Construction Pro Manager, which alleviates a major pain point for most construction project managers.
Arena explained, “The lesson I learned and I wish to share with you is that you must be ever vigilant and very observant about your job or profession and never hesitate to take back control with a new tool or process that will make the job easier, more productive or more profitable for your company.”
Construction Pro Manager was designed for construction professionals, including general contractors for the commercial and residential sectors; small- to mid-sized construction companies; single, prime contractors; private developers managing projects internally; consulting project managers; and contractors in most of the trades associated with construction projects.
All construction professionals and project managers are invited to use Construction Pro Manager for 14 days at no charge. They can start their free trial period by visiting www.ConstructionProManager.com.
