FieldLens Software


 

FieldLens is a mobile-first communication and project management platform designed by professional construction builders in the industry. The software allows companies to share information, assign tasks, post media, and track progress on jobs. The cloud-based deployment keeps field staff in constant communication with office staff. It is compatible with any web browser, iOS, and Android.

The workflow in FieldLens starts with observations - photos, details, or videos that can be uploaded from any smartphone and tagged with specific locations and categories. Tasks can be distributed to people or sent over email, even to contacts outside of the software.

Users can segment the projects by location and category, providing full visibility over the project. If a user in the field loses signal, information is stored offline and synced later. Automated reports in FieldLens track daily activity.

FieldLens offers a full-featured API and integrates with storage solutions Dropbox, Box, and GoogleDrive.

 

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

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!

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

Recommendations

Start out using FieldLens for Daily Reports! We tried implementing every feature at once and that is always a mistake with any app when trying to train new users.

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

Likes Least

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

Recommendations

Try the free trial period on different types of phones. This way you can solve any technical issues before you start using it regularly.

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.

Fieldlens is a great product for any construction professional. It is so versatile that you can really use it to track and communicate on any project. We are using it on several projects right now and I am continuously impressed by their product and their team. They are always willing to help develop new workflows that will help you and your team be efficient.

Pros

As easy to use as Facebook
Collects a lot of data
Very customizable
Truly improves project tracking and communication

Cons

For the price I could not ask any more of this product

Advice to Others

Test this out, you wont regret it. You can have it up and running on a project in an afternoon. Also do not be afraid to use their support they will help you with any hurdles you are coming across. In an industry filled with solutions that are inflexible and expensive Fieldlens is neither and they really hit the mark with their customers.

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.
