RationalPlan Multi Project Software Review: Graymark Costruction

By | January 6th, 2011|Reviews|Comments Off on RationalPlan Multi Project Software Review: Graymark Costruction

When Ted Stephens, owner of Graymark Construction, purchased RationalPlan software for project management, he was elated at the level of project planning he was able to get for his $90 investment. RationalPlan lets contractors create consistent project plans, allocate resources and analyze workload, track work progress, estimate projects’ costs and manage budgets. Stephens said, “It is much easier to use that Adaptec, which I’ve used before, and more feature-rich.

When a change comes up, Stephens can quickly change the work flow to accommodate it. On one project this construction scheduling flexibility saved a week of labor, which Stephens estimates at $2,500.

One drawback is that RationalPlan is not tied in with QuickBooks software with respect to the hourly rates and time, which adds a little more work to setting up projects, Stephens noted.

Overall, Stephens rated RationalPlan a perfect 10 out of 10. This software for project management fits all of Graymark’s needs on projects large and small. As Stephens put it, “We have been able to be more productive, my workers appreciate the direction and timeline, and my customers love being able to see their project end!

RationalPlan Multi Project Software Review: HPS Maintenance & Restoration

By | November 10th, 2010|Microsoft Project, Project Management Software, RationalPlan, Reviews|Comments Off on RationalPlan Multi Project Software Review: HPS Maintenance & Restoration

Tony Kramer, a senior contract manager at HPS Maintenance & Restoration, faced challenges trying to communicate complicated project details using Excel spreadsheets. At the same time, he did not have the budget to invest in a full-blown construction project management tool like Microsoft Project or Primavera P3. So Kramer scoured the Internet until he stumbled upon RationalPlan. At a cost of only £60, it was cheap enough that he could just dive in.

RationalPlan does not have all the bells and whistles of some of its more expensive competitors, but it does have all the basic features Kramer requires. For example, Kramer appreciates the ability to be able to pass detailed planning information on to his contract manager. In addition, the application makes it easy for multiple people to keep track of the status of projects without a lot of back and forth phone calls.

Kramer rates RationalPlan an 8 out of 10 and recommends the software to anyone planning medium sized jobs or who needs to send a schedule to an outside body via a PDF file.
