Viewpoint Construction Software had its largest presence ever at World of Concrete in Las Vegas this year and debuted Field View, a cloud-based and mobile solution that allows contractors to capture field reports and information from anywhere – even without an internet connection – helping to resolve issues quickly, eliminate paper, reduce risk and deliver higher quality projects.
Field View benefits include:
- Capture Field Information – Know what is happening on a jobsite at all times by sharing with entire project teams important data, including daily logs, punch lists, safety observations, inspections, defect management, and commissioning.
- Configurable Field Forms – Standardize processes and data across the organization and customize forms and tasks, without the support of IT, to manage any actionable event, such as identifying safety concerns, extra work items, or other tasks that require management’s action or coordination with the team.
- Team Collaboration – Assign and resolve issues, as they occur, to meet customer expectations and foster better collaboration between all key project stakeholders.
- Automate Drawings and Locations – Integration with Viewpoint For Projects allows users to download drawings to Field View and keep them in sync to ensure field teams are working with the most current versions.
“Site-based staff can capture information and either immediately report it or wait until they are back in the office,” stated Dafydd Morris, Construction Manager at Willmott Dixon. “When the project has site-wide Wi-Fi, field users can synchronise key information immediately – useful when issuing clean-up notices and other items requiring immediate subcontractor action.”
“Contractors struggle to capture and share field information in a uniform and timely manner. The inconsistency of how and what data is being captured can result in project delays, budget overruns, and even cause safety issues,” stated Matt Harris, Senior Vice President, Products at Viewpoint. “Other products on the market today only capture segments of field data. With Field View, contractors now have an easy-to-use mobile application that captures all field observations. Plus they can easily create field forms that reflect their team’s processes, without the need for IT or system admin support.”
