Pepper Construction Standardizes on Innovative Scheduling Leader, Powerproject
Pepper Construction Group, one of the largest contractors in the Midwest States, has selected Powerproject for its project scheduling system. The company, with nearly 1,000 employees and well-known clients in the commercial and private sectors, has long used technology to drive efficiency and, ultimately, a better finished product.
Pepper’s selection committee was looking for a fully capable, scalable, easy to integrate and simple to use system with an established track record and user community. After an exhaustive review of nearly a dozen options and an extensive trial of each, Powerproject became the clear choice.
“At Pepper, we believe that investing more time in planning up front actually compresses our overall timeline, Powerproject will help us do that even more efficiently. The system is intuitive and customizable – providing our teams the ability to quickly produce a quality schedule in a way that supports the needs of each individual client.”
The construction project software is the first choice of many leading contractors throughout the rest of the world and has been enjoying rapid adoption in North America since its introduction here in 2013. More than 100,000 schedulers worldwide rely on Powerproject every day to create and update precise project schedules, collaborate across the enterprise, manage resources and costs, and report progress to owners and clients.
“When people first look at Powerproject, they typically like it,” said Jim Dawkins, US channel manager of Elecosoft, the developers of Powerproject. “But when they actually try it, they like it even more. For many firms, Powerproject is simply the right tool for their project scheduling.”
