Test Driving Spitfire

test drive SpitfireI have the opportunity to speak to many people who are evaluating construction project management systems. Many want to explore the software they’re evaluating. Generally, this means starting with a short demonstration of the prospective system.

Although first demos provide a good introduction, until recently, the only way to explore the Spitfire Project Management System more deeply was to request a second demo. Many prospective clients did not want to take this extra step because they felt it somehow obligated them in some way (although this has never been true).  Yet it was clear that prospects were looking for a way to get a much closer look at the software. What they really wanted was to check out features at their leisure, gain an understanding of how everything works, and discern the overall benefits they would gain from implementing the system at their organization–all without feeling pressured.

So we came up with a way to give prospects what they want. Try.SpitfirePM.com incorporates a variety of instructional methods and allows prospects to get familiar with Spitfire’s dashboards, catalog, document management features, distributed routing, workflows and project management tools. A person can explore the system in a simple, self-pacing manner.

How does Try.SpitfirePM.com work?

  1. Prospects who are interested in more information after the initial demo are provided with access to Try.SpitfirePM.com–our cloud-based site that is configured with a full database.
  2. Prospects are issued log-on credentials that are valid for a specific period, and they can log on to the site any number of times during that period.
  3. The site is live so edits and transactions occur in real-time.
  4. The site is shared by many prospects; therefore, changes and transactions made by one person can be seen by others–just as would happen when team members are all using the Spitfire Project Management System. (We do monitor for inappropriate behavior.)
  5. Once a week, the database is refreshed. This means we take it back to an initial starting position and clear our all changes made by all visitors.

That’s all there is to it; we tried to make the process as simple as possible because we understand wanting to “test drive” a project management system before deciding whether to implement it.

If you are interested, start by requesting your initial demo and then tell us you want to try Try.SpitfirePM.com.
