Yes, an internet connection is required to participate in this programme. However, you do not need to be connected all the time. When an internet connection becomes available, the information is automatically transmitted. There is no impact to your connection.
No, the information cannot be displayed. This programme is designed to work for millions of users without affecting their product use, so the data is sent automatically only after Powerproject is closed. The data is also encoded so that it can be processed efficiently.
Information is collected as long as you use the product version for which you have agreed to participate or until you decide to stop participating in the programme. If you wish to stop participating, please contact our support team.
“Anybody can write a simple programme, but Powerproject links all the elements of the project and creates a strategy. This is invaluable when you need to demonstrate to the stakeholders of the construction project what an impact, positive or negative, any small change to the schedule or specification could have.”
“It’s now quick and easy for our construction directors not just to generate a programme and customise it, but one that can be organic and evolve week by week as it is progressed. We can always see how far we are ahead, or behind, using a jagged progress line which is easy to understand.”
“Powerproject Vision now helps us see how close we are to that across all projects, based on contractual milestones and internal progress indicators, keeping a clear view of planned and actual completion percentages.”
“Powerproject is one of the most flexible programme management software solutions.”
“Our project teams are using Powerproject because it’s user-friendly and performs like other Windows systems – it is more straight-forward to use than some other project management applications.”
“Digital construction is changing how we deliver and manage projects, and that’s a good thing. Tools like the Site Progress Mobile app help us to take people out from behind desks, marking up progress on drawings or schedules, to managing the work on site – which is exactly where we want them.”
“Linking programme tasks to model data is very simple with Powerproject BIM.”
