FOUNDATION

What

The first steps are crucial. Gate Three Foundation services the critical path to project efficiency with aligned and timely communication. Project execution improves when the entire project team (at the jobsite and in the office) are collaborating from the same information source, are reviewing the correct document version and understand who is accountable.

Gate Three is a single source of the truth for all project communication including, meeting minutes, contact information and project profiles. With your team electronically assembled, the Communications module enables your Project Inbox to reference and archive all correspondence - emails, letters, memos, conversation logs, all of which will be consolidated into eBinders during project close-out.

Additionally Design Documents are seamlessly uploaded, shared and stored for reference and review. As the project advances the Meetings module captures agendas and corresponding minutes, all the while an Activities Dashboards delivers a single workspace view of all related tasks and information.

Why

Managing contacts, activities, and communication are the foundation of every project. Double-entries, different drawings, misaligned activities and correspondence create are unnecessary delays and distractions that requires attention. There is already enough work to be done and time needs not be wasted on what should be automated processes. Every building needs to start with a solid Foundation, every project needs the Foundation Bundle.

With the minimal work I've done, it has been very easy to set up the contacts, and draft pursuit contracts. Also, the job aids for Pursuits have been an easy guide to follow on how use these modules. - Kevin, PM
