  • Workshop discussion on the digitalization of construction monitoring
  • Banks, investors and property developers exchange experiences and insights


Construction monitoring 2.0 – this is the expectation of many construction monitors or bank controllers regarding the new digital possibilities of monitoring. And indeed, new tools offer a qualitative leap in terms of timeliness and accessibility. However, with the new possibilities, the demands on monitors are also growing – this is where the “Monitoring Day” series from Cushman & Wakefield and emproc SYS starts. In an informal workshop discussion, experts exchange their experiences in construction monitoring, current challenges and problems. This characterizes the “Monitoring Day”, which took place for the second time, again with the host Cushman & Wakefield, this time in Berlin.


Stefan Stenzel, Manager for Development Monitoring at Cushman & Wakefield says: “Digitization offers great potential in terms of increasing efficiency and minimizing costs. In the real estate industry – as in other sectors of the economy – companies secure a competitive advantage for themselves by being the first to use the new opportunities. Our workshop discussion offers experts a chance to exchange views on the latest technical developments and is an ideal format for rapid knowledge transfer”.


The portal was created to keep the exchange dynamic and offer interested parties information on the latest developments. The focus is on increasing efficiency and the question: How can time and thus money be saved through optimized processes with cloud-based use of controlling software?  


Moritz Koppe, managing director at emproc SYS, the developers of the project controlling software PROBIS: “The difference between digital and classic analog construction monitoring can also be quantified. The data that a construction monitor has at his disposal, i.e. application and accounting data, is usually two weeks old. That’s how long it takes to collect the data from the various project participants and transfer it into a format that can be used by everyone. With our multi-project controlling software PROBIS, the data can be used in real-time. In this means: two weeks ahead of the classic schedule”.


Project-relevant data such as order status, billing and forecasts are automatically available to the monitors. The PROBIS software is designed in such a way that data is automatically transferred and confirmed or adjusted by the monitor. This ensures that the data is not only always up to date, but also that it is finally checked and approved.


During the 2nd Monitoring Day organized by emproc SYS and Cushman & Wakefield, the presented best cases aroused great interest. In the following discussion, the participating participants – representatives of project developers, banks and investors – exchanged views on more in-depth questions and specific solutions. The next Monitoring Day is already being planned and will probably take place in Munich in February.



The PROBIS controlling software for banks, project developers and project controllers allows cost certainty and cost control at an early stage of the project and guarantees a resilient initial situation for project cost control, risk management, and budget planning. Since its market launch in 2018, the PROBIS software has been available for real estate management.
