Time Better Spent: How 12 Top Contractors Roll Back the Clock
August 20, 2019
By far, the most immediate benefit Pype users see is the time savings. From precon to closeout, our AI software performs tedious, manual tasks with lightning speed and unparalleled accuracy. Just how much time can you save with our platforms? We asked a dozen of our GC partners to find out.
Pype AutoSpecs automatically scans your spec book, creates a comprehensive submittal register complete with mock ups, QA/QC requirements, tests and inspections, LEED data, product data, and more, with a customizable export directly into your PM software—all within minutes. It’s no wonder GCs across the country have found incredible time savings with AutoSpecs.
Robins & Morton found that AutoSpecs reduced the time it took to create and review their submittal log from 30 days down to just two—over 90% time savings.
Warfel Construction spent 115 to 120 hours just making their submittal log, not including the time spent reviewing it. With AutoSpecs, this dropped to five minutes—leaving plenty of time for review.
McCarthy Building Companies typically spent between three days and three weeks creating submittal logs, and AutoSpecs reduced that to just eight hours, or a 200-500% increase in efficiency.
Stiles Construction reduced the time it took to create their submittal log by 80%, changing their two-week process into a ten minute process (plus a few hours to review).
Rogers-O’Brien Construction reduced the amount of time they invested into their submittal log creation by 80%, spending just a fifth of the time on the log now as they did previously.
Jacobsen Construction saw a stunning 90% reduction in the time they spent creating their submittal log, dropping their 30 hours process down to 3 hours.
Okland Construction was an earlier adopter of AutoSpecs, and has been able to save two weeks on every project thanks to our platform.
The closeout phase of a project demands that project teams do more (punch lists, document collection, financial closeout, etc.) with fewer team members. Pype Closeout and Pype eBinder automates the document collection and turnover package compilation processes by automatically notifying all of your trade partners of their specific closeout requirements, organizing closeout documents uploaded by those trade partners directly to the platform, and compiling all of your approved documents into a streamlined, hyperlinked, digital turnover package PDF. This lets project teams focus on other aspects of project closeout, helping them turnover faster and receive their retention monies sooner.
Layton Construction successfully used Pype Closeout and eBinder to shave off two weeks from their project closeout process.
MCN Build spent 10-15 hours a week contacting trades, reviewing documents, and organizing their closeout process. Using Pype Closeout, they spend only 2-3 hours a week on project closeout and still maintain high quality turnover packages.
Foulger-Pratt became one of Pype Closeout’s first enterprise partners after they saw their closeout process reduced from six months down to just two.
