By automating the scheduling and data management, the SmartPM™ and Procore integration empowers the home office and field teams to be on the same page with planned vs actual budget and timelines–protecting profits,” says Samantha Journey, Business Development Manager at Procore Technologies.

SmartPM™ has worked tirelessly developing business process automation software to bring next-level project analytics to the construction industry,” said Michael Pink, CEO of SmartPM™ Technologies, Inc. “We have automated analytical processes that are typically performed by high-dollar professional service firms and we couldn’t be more excited to have the ability to offer these analytics directly to Procore’s customer base; Procore has done amazing things for the construction industry and we are honored to be a part of their ecosystem.”

What Customers Are Saying About SmartPM™

“All Construction projects start out well and run well for a while, but schedules can be deceiving by Month Twelve.

This has certainly been our saving grace.” Ted Lodigensky, Senior Project Manager at Confluent Senior Living


“Using the SmartPM™ system, we are now driving the successful outcome of our projects effectively instead of being fooled by overly aggressive schedules.  SmartPM uses the project schedule in a unique way that guides users to understanding all aspects of the project – the good, bad, uglyand better understanding leads to better outcomes for all parties involved.” – Will Chappell, Former VP of Construction at Wood Partners

“The SmartPM™ analytics platform has been instrumental in helping us better understand project performance and mitigate future risk. The result has been a savings of $700,000 on a single project and the peace of mind that comes with confidently forecasting realistic end dates for every project within our portfolio.” – Ryan Swingruber, VP of Development at Stoneleigh Companies

SmartPM  is Empowering the Construction Industry

November 2018

SmartPM Technologies Platform Empowers Construction Industry with Digital Intelligence that Automates Delay Analysis

Technology provides dashboard of in-depth project-level analytics of schedule quality and integrity for construction projects

ATLANTA –  – SmartPM Technologies, the leader in cloud-based construction schedule analytics, is revolutionizing the construction industry with its cohesive dashboard that provides in-depth project-level analytics.  This innovation is disrupting the construction industry by automating delay analytics by providing real-time insight into how projects are progressing as it relates to schedule delays and cost overruns.

Construction projects rarely go as planned, which means contractors, insurance companies, funders, buyers, and developers all benefit from SmartPM’s analytics.  In addition, its data is provided within seconds, rather than through the historical laborious process of developed by hand.

In fact, according to a KPMG Global Construction Project Owner’s Survey:

  • 59% of commercial construction projects are more than 10% over budget
  • 75% of commercial construction projects delayed beyond 10% of their original duration

“It’s been estimated that 50% of overruns tied directly to avoidable delays and scheduling inefficiencies,” said Michael Pink, Founder & CEO of SmartPM Technologies.

As a consultant for 15 years, Pink manually deconstructed dispute resolution cases in the construction industry. He knew it was a laborious and costly task, so Pink developed a more accurate, faster and cheaper way to resolve these issues through a patented software that automates dispute resolution.

SmartPM has received strong adoption by both private and public owners, commercial developers and general contractors, because its single platform is consistent, connected and transparent. The platform removes any guesswork from project oversight, so organizations can make informed decisions based on real data to maximize ROI.

“SmartPM can be implemented at any point during the project lifecycle,” said Pink. “Our clients who implement the program proactively are finding great success in monitoring the project without any surprises or costly delays from the beginning. While, our clients who don’t utilize our program until they’re already in a dispute, quickly discover that the software is able to quickly uncover historical issues where missteps may have occurred along the way.”

By translating the schedule data into meaningful insights, the SmartPM platform:

  • Analyzes Schedule Quality & Integrity – Ensure schedule quality is aligned with industry standards and identify changes made to future schedules that are unrealistic and misleading.
  • Diagnoses Project Performance – Get real-time, data driven analysis of progress and performance of contract.
  • Forecasts Milestone / Completion Dates – Extrapolate historical performance data onto future activities to predict completion dates of critical milestones.
  • Provides Forensic Delay Analysis – Identify historical critical path delays that drove project costs and delayed the schedule, rather than hiring consultants and lawyers.

Hosted by Amazon Web Services, SmartPM’s SaaS architecture facilitates ingestion and analysis of Oracle Primavera P6 and Microsoft Project files in minutes. This innovative analytics approach provides unique insights previously obtained only by costly and time-consuming manual effort.

The company has signed agreements with three of the top five commercial developers, the leading federal government agency responsible for complex construction initiatives, and one of the nation’s top program management firms.
