FieldLens software


FieldLens is a cloud-based project management solution designed for professional construction builders. Its features include assigning tasks, posting updates on social media platforms and tracking manpower progress, resources and equipment.

The workflow in FieldLens allows field workers to click photos, details or videos from the site, add locations and send progress updates to the back office managers. It assists the managers and the team to work in a plan view, where users can input their suggestions and provide feedback on the plan.

The solution helps in managing the visibility, where the member of a team can view only the content that is relevant or is assigned to them. The solution also provides offline accessibility, that helps users to work in offline mode.

It is compatible with the web browser, iOS, and Android-based systems. FieldLens offers a full-featured API and integrates with other cloud storage solutions like Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive. The solution is available on a monthly subscription basis.

Supported Operating System(s):
Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 8

    Pros

    I like that the software keeps track of all the changes/discussions that happened so that people can always refer back to previous discussions.

    Cons

    I do not like the fact that there is a lot of emails sent out about past items/new items/ etc - perhaps one collective email at the end of the day or beginning of the day would be my preference.

    Pros

    Its an app that can be used with ease on smart phone or ipad, it was great to use for puchlist. very easy to update once punchlist items were complete.

    Cons

    It is an app, so not very computer friendly, or as capable as bluebeam would be, but was enough to get the job done.

    Efficiency with FieldLens

    With FieldLens we have seen an improvement in the type of data we can capture on our projects. The tedious process of having to use multiple application for the variety of deliverables we need are gone. We have improved the efficiency in which we capture issues, pictures or create daily reports. And the best part is we can use the data for analysis during or after the project is complete.

    Pros

    Fast, customizable and the best customer support I have experienced.

    Our organization implemented FIeldLens after several months of comparison shopping, evaluation, and consultation with the provider. We determined that the application would best satisfy our need to communicate progress; identify and resolve issues; and report on the hundreds of individual projects we have in construction at any given time. The flexibility of the application provides our team with the ability to establish project/category structures that enable system wide schedule performance tracking, quality trending, and cost escalation management. We are able to report at the project, regional, contractor, and overall program level. This intelligence gives us better visibility and metrics to manage our complex organization - insights we were not able to achieve with any other solution. FieldLens has replaced all other field reporting solutions we had in place. The user interface is excellent and very intuitive, entry of information is simple and quick, and the available back-end information provides a data rich environment that is capable of supporting even the most sophisticated construction management needs. Since implementing FieldLens we have achieved measurable and impressive improvements in volume of field visits; on-site resource activity levels; mean time between issue identification and resolution; and real time communication between the field staff and project managers. In addition to those gains we have also seen a significant improvement reduction to and processing cycle time for change orders coupled with dramatically improved documentation. We have and will continue to recommend FieldLens to anyone with a complex and distributed construction portfolio. We will continue to use the application for all of our project and program management engagements. With proper attention and imagination invested during set-up the application will do some pretty amazing things.

    Their coaching / support team is fantastic. To have the right folks to teach the blue collar crowd that I belong to - how to increase positive communication and zero punch lists on a job site - that's impressive.

    Pros

    I stay organized - all the communication about my job sites happens in the app, all the key players are involved. The net result is that we finish jobs on time with fewer change orders and punch list.

    Cons

    The UI changes about once a year - but it's for the better. It takes some time to acclimate but in the end the newer UI is a better UI.

    Pros

    While using FieldLens, we have been able to capture and track project information in the field of construction that we had never been able to accomplish before using the app. New insights are constantly being revealed while learning from the captured information in FieldLens. I would have to say that my most liked quality of FieldLens is their customer support. They will make sure at all cost that you are successful in using their product no matter what. Great team over at FieldLens for sure!

    Cons

    Nothing at this time. The team truly understands that their product/app is never complete and needs continual improvement and advancements.

    That you can easily correspond with field staff and document progress on the job site.

    That it takes up a lot of memory on my phone. This may be a technical glitch on my end but am not sure.
