nPulse is designed for efficient meeting management to improve productivity and save time and cost. It monitors design management, procurement decision making and overall construction progress. The module ensures seamless project coordination, commitments tracking, and creating reliability in flow of decisions. nPulse meeting management module is proved to have improved productivity by 15% and reduced task closure time by 80%.
Issues Management permits location-based end to end issue tracking and minimises manual intervention in tasks. The module keeps track of communication history and proactively alert responsible role/personnel on ensuring timely collaboration across various project stakeholders (Owner, PMC, Consultants, and Contractors).
Document Management (DMS) is functionally designed to capture project information from liaison to design, and procurement to execution. The agile module offers effortless access and friction-free collaboration to meet the varied demands of extended construction teams. The document management system links document commitments to schedule and reduces misalignment between commitments and expectations.
BOQ Management eliminates discrepancies between owner and contractors with a single source of information for contractual quantities and rates. Linked to schedule, the module synchronously monitors material and financial progress based on field updates. It efficiently tracks changes to strategic business plans in sync with back-end ERP systems and operational metrics.
Budget Management in the BOQ module is designed to keep track of the budget evolutions through the project lifecycle. With ability to keep track of multiple budgets each linked to different schedules, it offers unique capabilities to monitor budget variations and to track forward looking annual and strategic business plans tied to operational metrics.
Quality Management intuitively manages quality audit and quality control to digitize quality processes. Ability to link quality process to schedule and 3D models allow for integrated activity-based element level quality inspections. Actionable alerts, analytical reports and dashboards provide insights in project and portfolio quality to mitigate expensive rework due to poor quality control.
Material Management schedule prevents misalignment between back-office procurement (from ERP systems) vs field office material requirements (from site stores). Linked to real-time schedule changes using BOM coefficients, material module enables projects for just-in-time procurement. The module efficiently calculates theoretical vs actual use of construction materials to transforms projects for proactive procurement and budget control.
Resource Management is versatile to handle all construction labour management and PMV (plant, machinery, vehicle) utilization issues. Tied to schedule management through productivity metrics, the system allows for projecting resource requirements based on real-time schedule changes. Independent contractor commitments for labour can be planned and monitored while portfolio analytics help efficient project controls in the future.
nPulse enables subcontractors with project progress updates, budget management, revenue and material management on mobile without data entry duplication. Being an efficient PLCM (project lifecycle cost management) solution, the module tracks subcontractor and labour progress on a daily basis by eliminating information latency between field and back office.
Projects Management monitors end-to-end, from planning to design and execution, with a reliable project flow. The module interconnects multiple data silos for forward time impact and aligns teams and processes.
Safety Management provides capabilities to manage safety audits and capture safety non-conformances and observations to digitize safety metrics. The data can be used for analytical reports and dashboards, which provide insights for improving safety performance metrics at project and portfolio level.
We are committed to the timely delivery of quality homes to our customers, while also ensuring safety, environmental compliances and commercial discipline during the construction process. The deployment of nPulse has helped us improve project execution efficiency. We have leveraged the platform’s analytics capabilities for review cadence and enhanced risk management. We expect the deployment of nPulse will eventually benefit all our stakeholders in the larger ecosystem, most importantly our customers and our suppliers.

nPulse is more user friendly than some of the leading global brands with comparable features. The solution subtly enables a look-ahead based planning and provides look-ahead metrics. Compared to our previous experiences managing projects, we are able to see clear ROI with this solution.
