Life is Hectic
Imagine you are the Superintendent of a medium-sized school district. Your entire career has been dedicated to creating the very best learning environment for your kids. One that is safe, secure, and ensures that students, teachers, and staff have facilities they can be proud of.
I am sure over the last few weeks you’ve been overwhelmed by various online companies sending out privacy update notifications to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. I won’t bore you with explaining it, you can go here to learn more about that. If you can’t sleep…it will help.
Dr. Guy Sconzo has seen a lot of changes in his over 40 years in education. Most recently, during his tenure as the superintendent of Humble ISD for over 15 years, the district grew from 23,000 to over 41,000 students. “By and large, we tracked everything with a spreadsheet. That’s a lot of moving parts to keep track of when you’re looking at building 14 new campuses. I’m not saying it was the worst way to do it, but making the ongoing changes, keeping up with the accuracy of edits and new information, and only having limited access was challenging.”
The recent and tragic events at Florida International University and at the Kakahari Indoor Water Park in Sandusky, OH. illustrate the need for these Owners to have their own construction project management software for all their projects.
Sylvia, the director of construction for the local K-12 school district, always prides herself on having answers when questions are asked. Especially when those questions come from the school board or from a concerned parent or community member.
A customer of ours recently sent me an article about another construction project management software (competitor) that had just closed a big round of funding. The email said, "Steve, why aren't you doing this? They should be investing in Owner Insite because your product is so much better than theirs!"
This week my team launched even more new features to our project management software that we're pretty excited about. In fact over the last few months, Owner Insite has quietly launched new features and capabilities that are making us an even more formidable competitor to some of the industries self-proclaimed "best" construction project management software platforms.
