ResponseVault Construction Project Database

Create a Project Database with integrations to all of the tools you use

How is your project going?

Every week, you’re asked to report to your team how it’s all coming together. You have a spreadsheet with all of your metrics: percentage complete, hours worked, blocking action items, etc. Your report will include a chart showing how their progress maps to the plan from Oracle Primavera. Your list of subcontractors is managed in Procore via the project’s vendor list. This requires you to collect the data each week from multiple tools by downloading CSVs into Excel and cleaning the data to fit your analysis. It’s repetitive, and it takes time. And I’m sure you’re thinking, “There must be a better way.” There is.

First, get it all in one place.

Construction projects are complex. With each phase of the building lifecycle, there are dozens of tools that are used to collect data, from the field, from the office, and from stakeholders outside your organization. Each tool has its strengths and weaknesses, but the most common problem we face is getting all the data they produce in one place. That one place might be Excel, it might be a data lake or data warehouse, or, unfortunately, it might be nothing at all.

ResponseVault is your project’s database.

We connect to the tools you use to manage your project, pull data into one location, and model the data based on the information you’re interested in reporting.

Here's how a project database can speed up the report.

First, we’ll connect to Procore and Oracle and pull your data into a central location, link the project information together, and create a custom form in ResponseVault that records percent completion every week. When the form is submitted, it will update the same database with your Procore and Primavera data. With all the data together, you can present a dashboard that’s up to date with all three sources of information. No CSV downloads, no data cleaning.

View the data however you want.

Every organization is different, and we understand that you don’t control every piece of software available to you. ResponseVault’s project database can be accessed via Excel or Microsoft 365, or it can be used as a data source in a BI tool like PowerBI, Tableau, etc. The system is flexible so you can leverage the tools you’re familiar with.

How does it work?

Create a centralized project database

ResponseVault takes care of provisioning and providing your team with access to a central database for your project's data. You can think of it as a large Excel document in the cloud, but with more structure and the performance necessary to handle data from many sources.

Connect integrations to sources of your project data.

Next, you will connect the different data sources that power your job site. That includes, Procore, Oracle Primavera, Salesforce, and more. It even includes Excel file uploads and form submissions from ResponseVault.

Model the data using industry best practices learned from the experts.

Data modeling can be extremely challenging if you don't have expertise with the developer side of your data source. We use industry experts to identify the correct way to model data between common tools, and get the most from the integrations.

Connect your analysis tools like Excel, PowerBI, and more.

We recommend you start small and use the analysis tools with which your organization is already familiar. Sometimes that's Excel or a Business Inteligence solution, like PowerBI. Sometimes, your team has experience with SQL or programming languages like Python. The project data base allows your team to use their desired tool set to do their analysis.
