  • Construction Project Management

    With 360-degree visibility into engineering and construction project performance, you can monitor project analytics, commissioning, and handover while controlling financial risk. You can also leverage information as a project progresses across different phases and work with other companies and manage risk through contract automation and collaboration.

  • Job Cost Accounting

    Capture labor, material and equipment costs from any device providing instantaneous updates to keep project management and accounting in sync. Simplify the process of calculating taxes for a project – tax zones are specified directly in the project and automatically retrieved and calculated for all invoices, purchase orders, subcontracts, and expenses.

  • Change Orders

    The change order is a document for profitability analysis and an audit trail of changes to the project revenue budget, commitments, and budgeted costs. Manage back charges or reduction in vendor commitments through the entry of a negative change order. Drop-ship workflows connected to change orders improve business workflows while allowing users to manage change orders easily. Streamline change orders for multiple construction projects with unit rate changes, custom retainage, and cost-only change requests.

  • Project Billing

    Confirm details and automatically generate pro forma, progress, and time and material invoices from one screen, including quick billing. Flexible progress billing by percentage of completion or by quantity like linear footage, square footage, etc. reduces the project owner’s risk while allowing customers to meet their unique business needs.

“It’s easy for things to get tied down as corporations get bigger, but HubSpot keeps us agile. And something we really appreciate is that the updates are constantly being rolled out. Six months or one year from now, the system will have improved in ways we didn’t even know we needed. That’s a huge upside – and one of the reasons I highly recommend others use HubSpot."
