"I’ve been looking for project management software for years but we always ended up using spreadsheets and paperwork. Northspyre fit in as something that was missing, to be able to visualize how the job is coming along in an entirely new way."

Madison Marquette is a national real estate developer with 23 million square feet of property across the U.S.

Before Northspyre:

"Northspyre has been a rock for me. I’ve been able to lean upon it... What really captured me was the usability of Northspyre. I’m not getting in a small cheap vehicle. I feel like I’m getting into a well-tuned German sports car-- tight with the steering, tight with the brakes, tight with the handling—and that’s what Northspyre feels like."

Immediate Benefits

REDUCE PROJECT DELAYS

Did you know the most common cause of delays is bottleneck decision-making during planning, design and construction? Projects commonly lose 1-3 days per month during the design and planning phase because project leads are bogged down in paperwork.

Why not focus on the big picture?

AUTOMATE 80% OF TIME-CONSUMING WORKFLOWS

A typical project a team spends 25-30% of total work hours every year on low-value administrative tasks like compiling requisitions, tracking vendors, logging change orders, etc. 

Why not automate it?

Like a digital assistant project manager-- in an app-- Northspyre smartly identifies actionable insights, next steps, challenges and opportunities on your project. 

Having an assistant would be great, right?

How is Northspyre different from other project and cost management software used by real estate teams?

Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most software systems move the work you were doing in spreadsheets into the cloud or a desktop application... but you still have to do all the time-consuming work like data-entry and putting together requisition packages. Northspyre takes things a step further by literally eliminating entire workflows by leveraging the power of automation, while using its intelligence to proactively comb through your project data and offer critical insights and actionable next steps. 

A.

Who is Northspyre for?

Q.

Northspyre was designed and built specifically for real estate owners who run projects that have budgets-- developers,  asset managers, 3rd party owners reps, internal real estate teams at institutions and corporations--it's not construction manager software force-fitted to real estate owners like Timberline Sage or Procore.


A.

Is it an accounting software?

Q.

No, Northspyre is not an accounting software--it does not cut checks or manage a general ledger. It is a project management solution with a central focus around project costs and timelines. Northspyre can output costs for direct upload into your accounting system though. Think of it as a replacement for Excel (your spreadsheet) except 100x more powerful.

A.

How does the pricing work? Are there long-term contracts?

Q.

Northspyre has pricing tailored for its different customer segments so we can find the model that works best for your situation. Price can be monthly, lump sum (for a project's duration), based on license tiers for multiple projects in an organization, etc. We'll make it work for your business model. Just ask. 

A.

Are there discounts available?

Q.

Yes, discounts can range anywhere from 5% to 50% of baseline pricing. You can get heavy discounts for having multiple projects or a portfolio of projects. For charitable focused non-profits we also offer discounts.

A.

Are there any hidden fees?

Q.

No, we are completely transparent.

A.

Does Northspyre export to Excel and PDFs?

Q.

Absolutely.

A.

Can I start in the middle of an ongoing project?

Q.

Definitely. In fact we make it super easy by porting over all of your existing data from spreadsheets or ledgers (whatever you have) for you.  You just keep running your project, and we'll port everything over in 2-10 business days depending on the size of your project. We'll also do a peer review to identify any errors or discrepancies-- we often find errors in spreadsheets that clients were completely unaware of.

A.

When is the best time to start Northspyre on a project?

Q.

The best time is at the very beginning when you are planning, designing and getting the necessary entitlements. Most real estate teams pay close attention to the construction schedule once ground-break happens BUT many delays actually happen before a project even starts construction due to delayed decision-making. For example, if a project lead is busy working on requisitions, they may put off for 1 day releasing an RFP for demolition contractors or filing permit paperwork. Add up 1-3 days lost every month for a year and your project is already 1-2 months behind before you've even started construction. Northspyre can help with that.
