    Pros

    Fieldwire has been very easy to use and helpful for me in the construction management world. It is pretty simple to learn and is not complicated at all. I use it on my iPad and on my Smartphone for the most part. If I have to write an RFI I can take picture and integrate them into the Blue prints to generate something on the spot. It is helpful you can markup any PDF drawings on your iPad or phone as well. I used Fieldwire on my last punch list walkthrough. It convenient to use it as a punch list because you can mark the items on the blue prints, take pictures, locate the problem by room, and assign the subs. Once you issue them you can filter it from any of the categories and print it off to give to the subs. I am unsure on the cost because my construction company pays for it but it sure has been helpful. I had a couple of questions and called their customer service once. Their customer service is friendly and helpful to deal with. If you are in construction management I would give them a try and see if you like it.

    Cons

    I have not been able to find anything that I dislike about this software. Everything has worked as planned.

    Pros

    This product is really good on relaying information to people in the field who are not sitting at a computer

    Cons

    This product is basically just a check list, or basically just a way for people to remind themselves what they need to do. I can think of so many free ways to do this same task

    Has potential with the right help setting it up!

    Pros

    The idea behind it is good, if I could have figured it out it seems like it would be a great way to gather all information on a potential customer/job in one place.

    Cons

    It was hard to figure out how to use the software. I could not find much help as far as getting it figured out and set up on my own.
    I think that if I were to try again I would need t setup a call with one of their people to walk me through it.

    The management remote field workers where budget doesn't allow for adequate supervision.

    Pros

    Highly visual interface (share plans, markups, version control) between back office and field ensures a higher degree of alignment and understanding of task to be done and quality control of task completion.

    Cons

    The focus is on the creation of plans rather than projects, lack of single-sign-on, the layout of the screen can take some getting used to and with the large volume of information available.

    Pros

    Nothing is as good as the original but for something that is cheaper and on the go app then this is it

    Cons

    You get what you pay for and sometimes that is not always the best. There are many more features and functions that would be nice to have to make it closer to Procore

    Cons

    Needs integration with apple pencile for hand rejection. Could use custom quick access favorites tools. Like a thin red pen or thick blue hilighter

    I am able to coordinate with trades and consultants quickly and effectively. I can usually access drawings faster than they can when speaking over the phone. All of the files are very accessible and the program is user friendly

    Pros

    -Having access to all of the drawings at your fingertips while on site
    -Very easy to search for information through drawings as the hyperlinks copy automatically
    -easy to compare new drawings to older versions
    -easily access all rfi's and linked files

    Cons

    -Program slows down when adding mass amounts of drawings
    -Would be helpful to have folders within the Photos section similar to that of the Files section

    Absolute time savings and effectiveness in communicating and having everyone quickly on the same page.

    Pros

    Exporting PDFs with all the comments and hyperlinked photos has saved our inspectors much time in archiving their findings.

    Cons

    Small item I've already suggested to their customer support and they've been responsive in saying when it might be implemented, which is applying different colors to the picture icons, so we can color code our pictures.

    Increased the speed of delivery of drawings and files. Ability to collaborate in real time between field and office. Portable access to all job files and drawings.

    Pros

    More Intuitive than other software we tried. We were able to get value right away and recently had a training session to use some of the more advanced features.
    The ability to access the plans or other documents anywhere via the cloud is a time saver. Great for managers that are involved in multiple projects.

    Cons

    It would be good if we could have a library of electrical symbols to add extra work and changes to our as builts. Or be able to build the images on a clipboard that we could paste from.

    Overall a great product for the money and a lot cheaper than the other options out there. Extremely user friendly and simple design makes it easy to navigate and understand where you are. This program WILL save you time and effort in your projects.

    Pros

    Pros for Fieldwire include:
    1. Fantastic Task organization and prioritizing such tasks.
    2. Great calendar view of task start and end dates.
    3. Customizable categories for tasks as well as being able to insert a task directly to the blueprint uploaded.

    Cons

    Cons for Fieldwire include:
    1. No simple way of sending someone a "calendar view" of tasks.
    2. No pre setup forms such as "Change Orders" or "Lists" (YET...its on the way)
    3. Great report system but no report that is easy enough for your standard home owner / customer to understand.

    Almost zero.

    Pros

    The customer service has been great ( we need to use them frequently ). They are quick to resolve the many issues we have.

    Cons

    1. You can't make real templates for repetitive project types.
    2. You can't organize projects on the home screen. We tend to have dozens of projects in different stages going on and there is not a way to organize how they sorted. They cannot be flagged or colored coded either.
    3. In certain situations you need to follow strict naming conventions of imported files....it's not something I want to spend my time worrying about.
    4. The task viewer is weak. The text doesn't wrap so most of the task is cut off. You cannot control the width of the columns, their names, or colors ( great for the color blind )
    5. Features are buried and are inconsistent between desktop and mobile.
    6. The app KILLS battery life.
    7. There is not a way to leave general notes or comments.
    8. Reports are weak.
    9. If my boss ( who doesn't actually use it, but likes the idea of the app) didn't make me, I would have ditched this a while ago.

    Field Wire is a great tool however it has some issues to be worked out such as the lack of Wi-Fi on a jobsite causes workers to not get an update to a drawing immediately. If we wanted the information to be transmitted to them in real time we would have to get cellular data on all of the devices that utilize this product.

    Pros

    Great for getting information to workers and keeping everyone up to date

    Cons

    Need to figure a way to get information to people instantly in the field

    I will preface my review by stating that I primarily use Fieldwire via the desktop browswer interface. My coworkers use the tablet app in the field and I coordinate with them on my desktop PC at my office. The browser interface leaves much to be desired. Navigating the plan sheets can be clunky and making markups is tedious. The markup features are rather limited (compared to software such as Bluebeam). The ability to organize files in each project is welcomed but the automatic revisioning feature is not the greatest, though it is functional. That being said, my coworkers rely on the software while on the jobsite. We use the "Tasks" feature to organize and assign the work. We even have a project for our internal shop tasks such as cleaning and maintenance. Overall, this is a vital piece of software for our business. It is not perfect and there are many things that it cannot do. But we have yet to find a better alternative.
