Project developers and controllers still face many challenges on a day-to-day basis, such as controlling financing, permitting, planning and design. To overcome these multi-layered challenges, it is important for the project developer and controller to have a linked overview of their projects and costs.
A consistent project management and budget management strategy is of great importance.
We met our long-standing client, h3-munich GmbH, in Munich and asked the managing partner, Mr. Appelmann, how he copes with the current challenges. The company h3-munich GmbH specializes in project development, project management and control, construction monitoring and owner representation.
Why do you like to work with project control software?
As a project controller, I know from my experience how important it is to keep an eye on costs on an ongoing basis. That's why we decided to work with a project management software that was developed specifically for the construction and real estate industry and thus offers comprehensive functions for cost tracking, processes and project control.
What makes working with a proptech different from Excel?
Since the beginning of my career in project control, I have worked with professional cost tracking systems (even when Proptechs were not yet born). I use Proptechs and their databases for all projects: from cost tracking of both development plan development to supposedly "mundane" tenant improvements. I find that the software for multi-project controlling and multi-project management is very user-friendly and logical. Compared to other systems I have come across, PROBIS software is easy to use and the early warning systems, e.g. for funding requirements planning, are project-eminent. With PROBIS, you realize that cost control professionals are at work.
In addition, I am currently in the testing phase for the new Developercalculation Tool calculate, of which I am already enthusiastic after a short time, as I can calculate and document several development variants in parallel.
Mr. Appelmann has committed himself to sustainable project management ("we can't go on as before") and will participate in a panel discussion at the "Decision Sustainability" conference in the no Olympic Hall in Munich www.entscheidungnachhaltigkeit.de.
The projects as well as ESG data are controlled with PROBIS
