Shaping the Future

Pros

Fieldwire is a good software to help organize the construction and make sure if there are any updates to material that every subcontractor will know. Im not sure if it still is but a great pro is the software is free.

Cons

The only thing I can think of is it has competitors that does the same thing and probably more.

All project information made portable...

Having the ability to measure rooms for cable lengths to connection points, measure for pass through supplies, ceiling grid layout for speaker installation, ceiling types for equipment in those areas, glass store front dimensions for scheduling systems and file access per room needs.

Pros

The ability to have access to all the information supplied to the team, with the ease of access from mobile devices. Its almost better than having the actual paper version! Tasking ability, creating plan sub folders, individual naming of drawings, hyperlink and photo options, its a great tool and has worked great for our team with more that 240 plans uploaded.

Cons

Closer zoom would be nice and maybe creating a way to more accurately measure with select points of that which needs measuring. Other than that everything has worked great!

Easy to carry all plans!

I enjoy using this software in the field with my foreman and superintendents. When plans are updated or i need to send information to the field, i can do so quickly!

Pros

Easy to use once you learn the software. It makes you look professional and organized while in meetings, on the job site, etc.

Cons

There needs to be a way to edit or mark sheets within the "file" portion of the software.

Fieldwire would be the solution for Issue tracking and documentation control on a project.

Pros

Fieldwire offers platforms for estimating, scheduling, puchlist and issue tracking. Its very helpful for documentation control . Its easy to contact support and its relatively cheaper. Organizations can choose the pricing packages based on users and functionality.

Cons

Hyperlinks and links within sheets is a problem. Fieldwire is not compatible with 3D model views in Assemble. Its less integrated to other softwares.

Surveys and Installs

Pros

Easy, simple, straight forward software.

Cons

If you don't take the picture while in the task, you can only upload one picture at a time to a task (on phone-not laptop, but mainly use software on phone)

Great for Construction Management!

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.

Basically just a check list

Use google!!!

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

Hard to understand

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.

Transform Field Worker Engagement

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.

Nice alternative to Procore

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

Site audit with mobile software

I like the app enough to purchase...

Pros

360 in app capture. Works with other cloud services. All the other standard needed markup tools exist.

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

One of the few software programs that bring purchasing, project management and field together

Pros

Very easy to follow features to guide and help user when inputting information. More features to allow images of field corrections to sent to purchasing, etc. But a very good program

Cons

Would be nice to allow accounting to inter mix with building options so marketing and accounting agreed on cost

I use this program every day on site!

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

Usefulness is contagious

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.

A must tool for executing a job on time and accurately

Pros

simply the ease of use. Always with me on site and in my vest. It allows me to work more efficiently and execute tasks on site without going back to the office.

Cons

Fieldwire does not have a lot of cons and is tough to think of any. If there were any issues, Fieldwire would correct them and value our teams input

Perfect for a subcontractor because of the emphasis on tasks and it is easy to use.

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.
