New Jersey City University Selects Projectmates Construction Management Software for Major Projects

Richardson, TX (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Systemates, Inc. is excited to announce a new partnership with New Jersey City University. With multiple major projects planned, New Jersey City University sought a construction project management software that would efficiently streamline their upcoming construction projects. After reviewing several vendors, NJCU deemed Projectmates to be the best fit.

New Jersey City University recently announced three major construction projects planned: a 103,000 sq. ft. West Campus Academic building, expansion and renovation of their current Science building, and a 415 bed residence hall. In addition, NJCU will also be undertaking several renovation projects designed to meet the needs of their academic programs in coordination with the school’s Facilities Master Plan. As a result of the variety and scope of the projects, NJCU decided to look into a construction management solution that fit the needs of education programs.

“Projectmates demonstrated that it was the best fit for our needs,” said Andrew Christ, Associate Vice President, and Deborah Morales, Associate Director of Facilities and Construction Management. “It is focused on construction project management; has a variety of templates that we can use, provides excellent ‘at your fingertips’ executive reports, is cloud based, and was within budget.”

NJCU’s main needs consisted of a tool that would provide consistent and streamlined processes of their cost tracking. Not only does Projectmates have the ability to streamline workflows, it also stores and manages all related construction data in one location. Because Projectmates is a web-based multi-platform solution, all team members, from project managers through Directors, can input information anywhere at any time.

Additionally, Projectmates’ extensive out-of-the-box reporting feature allows for a snapshot of individual projects as well as the construction program in its entirety. Executive management at NJCU will now have access to project information at a moment’s time, engaging team members and partners in a way that encourages collaboration and provides historical data for future planning needs.

About New Jersey City University

At New Jersey City University, goals and dreams are right at home. NJCU is large enough to provide world-class opportunities for learning. Yet, our classes are small enough to afford a highly-personalized experience that empowers students to realize their greatest aspirations.

It begins with academic excellence. NJCU’s fully-accredited colleges of arts and sciences, education and professional studies offer 41 undergraduate degree programs and 27 masters programs and 2 doctoral programs, including emerging and interdisciplinary fields. A student-teacher ratio of 12:1 and average class size of 24 translate to exceptional attention from a dedicated, innovative and involved faculty.

Morgan Neville Directs 'The Sound of Silk' Documentary


Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 15, 2014

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom) is directing ‘The Sound of Silk’, an exciting new documentary about the Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma, the world-renowned cellist.

“’The Sound of Silk’ will serve as a lens for larger questions about cultural identity in a global society, and the potential for individuals to act as catalysts for change,” said Neville. “Like the ancient Silk Road itself, ‘The Sound of Silk’ will make the foreign familiar while challenging long-held notions of identity and our place in the world.”

The Silk Road Ensemble was founded in 2000 under the artistic direction of Yo-Yo Ma. Since then, its members have come from more than 20 countries. It has performed in 119 cities in 30 countries, generated more than 80 new works, recorded 60 pieces of music, and just released its fifth CD, A Playlist Without Borders.

“Music offers us a tool to code our inner lives – our shared empathy, passion, humor and aspirations,” said Yo-Yo Ma. “Focusing on the Ensemble musicians, their music and their unique mode of cultural exchange, ‘The Sound of Silk’ captures a vibrant world of cross-cultural collaboration, focusing on what we share, rather than what divides us.”

Laura Freid, Silk Road Project Executive Director and CEO, said, “During our 15th anniversary year, it’s an honor for the Silk Road community to welcome Morgan Neville into our family. ‘The Sound of Silk’ will help further our founding vision: to connect the world’s neighborhoods by bringing together artists and audiences from all over the world.”

‘The Sound of Silk’ is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Pershing Square Foundation and other contributors. For further information and updates, visit the Silk Road Project website.
