Six Reasons Asta Powerproject Is the Best Construction Management Software
If you ask the average construction manager what his favorite construction management software is, he’d probably list off Primavera P6 out of habit. With Primavera’s massive market share, it is unlikely that he’s tried anything else. Despite their market share, however, we believe that a little-known, but very powerful competitor could be the best construction management software in the industry.
Asta Powerproject may not be the market leader in the United States, but it’s used frequently internationally. With over 85,000 users worldwide (and counting), they’ve evolved past fringe competitor and are poised to become major players in the US construction management industry.
So why are we such big proponents of their software? There are six primary reasons we believe their construction management software is the best in the industry:
1. Asta Powerproject is Easy to Learn
