"We are enjoying working in CORE!"

"Time and expense, project management and billing features in CORE have definitely helped us solve problems. Most importantly providing detailed work instructions and budgets to our team. CORE is really helping us manage time and expense tracking. On the project management side we can easily forecast capacity in hours and can create detailed estimates with minimal efforts. Billing process is easy and intuitive as we can provide clients with a detailed invoicing if required. Ability to manage subcontractors pretty much like our employees is very helpful. Last but not the least we are enjoying excellent customer service and support."

FAQS

What if I don't Use Project Management Software?
Without project performance tools, your firm may be working inefficiently, costing you time and money, and impacting the quality of your work. Each project has several stakeholders, collaborators, and phases, so it’s natural for teams to need a little help planning and executing their work.

If you continue to work without practice management software, you put your firm at risk of lost time, communication issues, cost overruns, errors and rework, a lack of data and analytics, delays, and an unmotivated team.

By adopting a project management platform, you equip your firm with real-time data that helps you make more informed business decisions, a visualization of project progress, transparency and accountability across the team, and reminders about crucial upcoming tasks and deadlines.

To ease the challenges of planning and monitoring projects, we’ve made it easy to understand the numerous benefits of project tracking software, which features are most impactful, and how to choose the right software for your needs. PM software will help your firm avoid costly mistakes and enable you to improve your project delivery to clients.
How Do I Manage My Project's Progress?
Project scheduling software helps you establish a framework to measure progress and communicate it across your project team. Starting each project with a kickoff and scheduling recurring check-ins (ideally weekly) provides built-in time to check in on project progress to see if you’re right on track or falling behind. By keeping an eye on progress, you can adjust as soon as you realize you're behind schedule or over budget.

Using a project management platform helps you track and visualize KPIs, with features like customizable dashboards and analytics reports that you tailor to your firm’s needs. Once you determine the most critical metrics and financials to track, you can set up your project management software to automatically generate reports and send them to project collaborators. This ensures everyone has access to the data they need and is on the same page.

Tools built into PM software, like time and expense tracking, provide data on how productive employees are and how much work goes into a project. These insights allow you to offer any additional training that's needed, optimize your workflows, and plan more accurately for the next project.
How Do I Manage Scope Creep with Project Management?
Projects rarely go exactly the way we intend. Once a project is in progress, perhaps you discover that you need to make some tweaks, or a client requests changes. It’s best to be transparent with your client about the effect their requests may have on the project’s timeline, budget, or results, to ensure everyone’s on the same page about how to handle changes.

Scope creep occurs when work expands beyond what was planned, including projected time, budget, or labor. It’s very common and can cause projects to fail, but it is avoidable and fixable, especially when using modern project management tools like what’s available from BQE.

To prevent scope creep, you should clearly define a project's scope upfront, know the early signs of scope creep, and have a backup plan or steps to descope. Establishing a framework to help you prioritize and make decisions around the project scope will help you stay on track to hit your targets.

Project planning software helps you avoid scope creep by streamlining your processes and helping you recognize issues early on. It also makes it simpler for you to communicate updates to all project collaborators and stakeholders.
