Change orders are inevitable; how you manage them makes all the difference. Proactively handle change orders with quick, efficient and integrated communications. Ensure your team stays informed of all updates, and readily adapts to changes as a cohesive unit by working on a single database platform that spans your entire enterprise. The result? Your workflows stay on schedule and your costs stay in check, preserving your profits.

Manage Changes as They Come

You need a system that can help you think ahead. Using a single platform with embedded project controls, you can access any detail of your project, understand the impact to costs and make quick adjustments—all in real time. And with the ability to anticipate potential change orders, your team can predict how unexpected costs will affect your project—and how to bill your subcontractors and suppliers appropriately. In the event a predicted change order materializes, you simply approve the order and your system will automatically create all the necessary changes to subcontracts for you.

Explore why project controls are critical for effective change management.

"With our old systems, we'd have to manually write a change order twice; but with CMiC, we can manage our day-to-day business seamlessly."

Mitigate Risk with Real-Time Synchronization

Change orders bring risk. In the event of an unexpected change that affects your teams, you need to share the new information and the updated schedules without delay—and that’s no easy task when different teams use different tools to get their work done. Using a platform where all the administrative information from across the enterprise resides in only one place, you can rapidly respond to unanticipated changes and ensure that everyone is always looking at the most up-to-date schedules.

Layton Construction revitalized the way its teams communicate by moving to a single database platform with mobile capabilities. Now everyone operates under a single, collective umbrella.

See how you can effectively manage every change order that comes your way with CMiC’s single database platform with embedded project controls.

Maximize Your Operational Agility

The only way to get ahead of a change order is to prepare for it. Though you hope to never use your contingency plans, you want your financial and internal control systems ready in the event that you need to activate your contingency plans. With a single database platform, you can see all cost, schedule and project overview changes in one place, giving you the optimal vantage point to proactively adapt to change orders as soon as they occur.
