Willmott Dixon has standardised on Powerproject for its planning platform
The company is utilising Powerproject to bring site managers closer to the planning process so they can be more directly involved in programme planning, and react to rapidly changing demands from clients and home-buyers.
“It feels like Powerproject has been built for the job in hand, and works with me rather than me having to struggle to get what I want from the software.”
Willmott Dixon is wholly committed to bringing its people and more accountable for the use of time.
To that end it is trialling the role that Site Progress Mobile tracking can have in enabling its project leaders and site managers become closer to its projects, more aware of project progress, and better able to manage the supply chain.
The business gains not only efficiency and greater accuracy in progress tracking, but is starting to enjoy a clearer and more accurate visibility of progress and position on the trial projects.
“We’re finding this tool is making it easier to build progress tracking into what our people do, rather than it being yet another thing that they have to do for someone else.”
