Three Ways Asta Powerproject Outperforms Primavera P6

Three Ways Asta Powerproject Outperforms Primavera P6



As the market leader for construction management software, Primavera P6 appears to have it all. That’s why so many of our clients are shocked to find out that there is software with all of Primavera’s functionality at a fraction of the cost. No, this isn’t a small startup looking to get new users. In fact, with over 85,000 users worldwide and a track record of success, Asta Powerproject is poised to become the next big name in the construction management industry in the United States.



Despite Asta Powerproject’s robust functionality and low price point, few US-based contractors are aware of them. Asta Powerproject was developed in the UK and used all over the world. Now it’s available in the USA. Here are three reasons that Asta Powerproject outperforms Primavera P6 at a fraction of the cost.


Asta Powerproject is Extremely Easy to Use

Unlike other project management software, Asta Powerproject is extremely easy to use. At its core, Powerproject features a fully functional Gantt chart with drag-and-drop functionality. This takes the cumbersome task of creating new projects, adding activities, costs, and calendars, and makes it as simple as pointing and clicking.


Asta’s Powerproject software also makes it easy to test out multiple scenarios. With multiple “undo” and “redo” options, you can easily change the variables in your project plan to see how your overall timeline would change. This puts you in the driver’s seat and makes accurate planning and forecasting a breeze.


Powerproject Makes Reporting Easy

Whether it’s with your boss, your employees, or your subcontractors, communication is key to a successful project. Senior management doesn’t like surprises, so Asta Powerproject has been built to keep your management team in the loop. Powerproject’s reporting functionality enables them to monitor key performance indicators and track project performance with business intelligence tools and reports. This means whether they’re in the office, on the construction site, or even at home, they can know exactly how the project is going from any device.


Additionally, Powerproject integrates seamlessly with other software like Primavera P6 and Microsoft Project. This allows you to easily communicate timelines with other teams, regardless of the platform they use.


Powerproject Has Perfect Licensing Terms for the Construction Industry

One of the biggest pain points we regularly see with Primavera P6 is their licensing terms. While it may seem like a triviality, this construction management cost calculator we developed shows how a single-use license structure can add cost fast.


With single-user licensing structures, like Primavera P6, you are faced with a dangerous choice. You can either buy more licenses for everyone on your team to keep everyone in the loop – adding substantial cost to every project – or you can buy fewer licenses – saving you money, but costing you transparency. With Asta, however, you only need to buy enough licenses for the users that will be on Powerproject at the same time. This makes your technology substantially more affordable without sacrificing communication with your team.


The Bottom Line: Asta Powerproject Has All The Functionality of Primavera P6 at a Fraction of the Cost

Over the years we’ve worked with thousands of contractors, construction managers, and state agencies. We’ve seen plenty of technology come and go, and we’ve seen some technology like Primavera P6 have success. While Primavera P6 is a fine software with robust functionality, it can be very pricy for large and small projects.
