Pepper Construction Selects Asta Powerproject for Project Scheduling

11/2/2016 — Pepper Construction Group, one of the largest contractors in the Midwest, has selected Asta Powerproject for its project scheduling system.

The company, with nearly 1,000 employees and well-known clients in the commercial and private sectors, has long used technology to drive efficiency and, ultimately, a better finished product.

 “Construction technology has evolved rapidly in the last 20 years,” said Howie Piersma, vice president of IT at Pepper Construction. “That enabled innovation not only in how we deliver services but also in how we plan. We were looking for a software that would be as nimble as our team.”  

Pepper’s selection committee was looking for a fully capable, scalable, easy-to-integrate and simple-to-use system with an established track record and user community. After an exhaustive review of nearly a dozen options and an extensive trial of each, Asta Powerproject became the clear choice.

 “At Pepper, we believe that investing more time in planning up front actually compresses our overall timeline,” said Eric Bullion, Pepper project director. “Asta Powerproject will help us do that even more efficiently. The system is intuitive and customizable – providing our teams the ability to quickly produce a quality schedule in a way that supports the needs of each individual client.”

The construction project software is the first choice of many leading contractors throughout the rest of the world and has been enjoying rapid adoption in North America since its introduction here in 2013. More than 100,000 schedulers worldwide rely on Asta Powerproject every day to create and update precise project schedules, collaborate across the enterprise, manage resources and costs, and report progress to owners and clients.

Catalyst, the Chicago-area reseller for Asta Powerproject completed the sale and will provide training.

“When people first look at Asta Powerproject, they typically like it,” said Jim Dawkins, US channel manager of Elecosoft, the developers of Asta Powerproject. “But when they actually try it, they like it even more. For many firms, Asta Powerproject is simply the right tool for their project scheduling.”
