Powerplay is Helping an Education Institute Manage Their Multiple Projects
Tanuvas is providing meritorious performance in education and research in the field of agricultural sciences. As one of the reputed institutions in the country, they are expanding tremendously in and around Tamil Nadu. In this growth process, they could not track the progress on multiple sites. The visibility of the site progress was limited to only a few team members. This led to project delays and monetary losses.
Powerplay’s desktop solution provided the office team the efficiency to break down their projects and tasks individually and assign them to different team members. This process helped various team members get visibility on progress on different levels, assisting the team in mitigating risks as soon as possible, thereby avoiding project delays. Detailing projects on multiple sites helps the team save almost 3 hours weekly.
Single Source of Truth
Provides clear visibility to various team members across multiple projects on the progress that has been made. The single source of truth is accessible to all team members, thereby eliminating miscommunication.
When the site team gives an update regarding the site’s progress, it gets automatically updated on the desktop software. This lets the admin and office teams oversee all sites 24*7 from anywhere.
Generating Automated Reports
Now engineers are not wasting their time on making manual Weekly Progress Reports. They can generate progress reports with a click and send them to various stakeholders regularly. This helps the team members save 3 hours every week individually.
“We have been using Powerplay for almost a year, which has helped us save time by giving project visibility to all the team members. We can mitigate the risks daily and avoid all the last-minute delays. The best part is Powerplay’s desktop solution that helps us document all the reports and progress.”

Monitoring Projects Precisely
Powerplay is becoming the only Operating System (OS) for the Indian Construction Industry. Tamil Nadu Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (Tanuvas) is building different branches of its university in and around Tamil Nadu. The office team is located in Chennai and is looking into constructing and expanding various campuses in and around Tamil Nadu. The admin team needed one platform to monitor all their 150+ projects on 12+ campuses. Mr. Prabhakaran, the executive engineer from the admin team, talks about how Powerplay helped the team. “Initially, we were coordinating through WhatsApp messages and phone calls with engineers who were on site. This generated many communication gaps as different sub-contractors, and general contractors were involved. The Junior Engineer used to update the Executive Engineer weekly, which did not provide visibility to other stakeholders.
Powerplay’s Project Monitoring feature helped them solve this issue as everyone is present in one platform and can oversee all sites precisely. Now the office team can coordinate with people from various parts of Tamil Nadu who are on-site and looking into constructing different campuses. This visibility lets the team mitigate risks immediately as the provided updates are supported with attachments like geotagged photos. This visibility reduces administrative workloads and increases communication and transparency among project team members.”
Supervising Made Easy
Mr. Kuppuswamy, the Estate Officer at Tanuvas, comments on the importance of digital solutions in the construction industry. ”I have been in the construction industry for over three decades. I have seen the communication process gradually evolving from paper records and phone calls to Whatsapp. Even with all these evolutions, the method of communication and organization was still a hassle. But then I learned about Powerplay, one solution built to help construction management at all levels. We have been using Powerplay for almost a year, which has helped us save time by giving project visibility to all the team members.
We can mitigate the risks daily and avoid all the last-minute delays.
I am so relieved these days that I don’t have to be a part of multiple WhatsApp groups. I am retiring from this industry in a few days. It is terrific to see digital solutions like Powerplay being built to disrupt the construction industry. I can vouch that Powerplay is one product that can be the ultimate OS for the entire construction management process. The best part is Powerplay’s desktop solution that helps us document all the reports and progress.
The customer support team has provided Key Account Managers who can communicate with us in the regional language and accommodate all our needs. Today, I can see every detail related to a project in a much more accessible way. All our contractors and engineers work in different parts of Tamil Nadu. We can coordinate with everyone by just sitting in the office. Initially, every engineer used to take at least 3 hours a week to create the weekly progress report to update the vice chancellor and university presidents. Now, we have to just click the generate report button, and the report gets generated, giving a clear view of the details and progress.
I can see how effective this technological intervention by Powerplay can help the construction industry in the upcoming future.”
