"I never have to go on the hunt for information anymore. Clearstory offers real-time access to all of our Change Orders. All of the information is there, whenever I need it!"
Project Manager at Blach Construction
Clearstory offers Blach the ability to consolidate their change order process, which eliminates the stress that comes with juggling multiple Change Orders over the life of a project. “There’s always a nerve-wracking moment at the end of a job as I account for varying Change Orders, when I wonder if everything is accounted for, and hope that nothing was inadvertently overlooked,” Tami states.
Increasing Accuracy & Eliminating Paper Tags
Paper Time & Material tags are universally despised throughout the industry, as Blach’s team can attest. Prior to using Clearstory, Tami recalls having stacks of paper tags in file cabinets at her desk, which would have to be logged before being entered into their financial software. She spent hours each week referencing each tag with her log, ensuring added scope was accurately documented. The process was laborious, time-intensive and challenging -- and one of the key reasons Blach turned to Clearstory.
Clearstory reduces unnecessary and excessive back and forth communication. “Because information is real-time, Clearstory provides up-to-the-minute clarity, which eliminates the potential for confusion,” observes Pablo.
Enjoying Peace of Mind
Change Orders are a reality in the world of construction. Inevitably, they require valuable time in a Project Manager’s work day– time that might be better spent on other initiatives. Clearstory mitigates the unnecessary and sometimes excessive administrative burdens that accompany the Change Order process. Clearstory offers efficiencies that extend beyond immediate access to real-time cost information and Change Order status. By using Clearstory, Tami and Pablo have found that they have more accurate data for meetings, are quicker to address client inquiries and can more skillfully analyze project information and cost data. Ultimately, Clearstory simplifies what is often an ongoing and complex process in the world of construction.
