It is relatively easy to use. It auto populates the daily reports for us. It makes it easy for superintendent to input their reports

Cons

It is a little hard to maintain the system. The setup for each project is not as automated as i think it could be.

Ease of getting reports done

Pros

I like the cloud based server. The ability to rapidly recall previously submitted information and the fact that all input is archived.

Cons

I don't like how difficult it is to coordinate when you do and dont have connectivity (wifi). They need a better means of coordinating these conditions.

Pros

Note Vault is a great way for field superintendents to generate their daily logs, and have the daily logs distributed to the appropriate people the next day.

Cons

Note vault was only used for daily logs in our company which was limiting and why we eventually transitioned away from the product to a more complete documentation program.

Progress tracking on the project.

Pros

Ease of use, can use it in the field by either calling in your note, typing it in, or using voice recognition directly into the app.

Cons

You get out of it what you put into it. I don't use it as well as I should, but hey that's not a Notevault issue.

bring the filed to the office staff

Pros

Ease access, crew can go in and snap a photo of site and we can send to our builder if need be, or add to our advertisement.

Cons

when setting up address there was a time delay with the state and zip. Need to block in locations (city / State) reduce time.

Pros

Easy and simple to use. This was a nice tool that we could use to track activities in the field with the various crews and stay up to date on the projects. I can see this as a great tool for General contractors/owners for tracking large scale projects.

Less typing. Easier upload of photos.

Pros

Easy upload of photos. Transcription minimizes the amount of typing. Customer support is actually pretty good, problems are dealt with swiftly when they can be dealt with.

Cons

On the calendar, days with filled in with a color, makes it easy to see which days you were on a project. The color needs to change when an email has been generated and sent.

Also would like to be able to access favorites when uploading photos. Certain photos are used repeatedly.

App occasionally crashes at the end of a voice note just when it's time to chose photos.

Daily concise snapshots of the project shown by the integral person of the given area.

Pros

Anyone we give it to is able to use it. Even those that are less technically savvy. It does a good job of giving everyone a brief overview of the project in a concise daily snapshot.

Cons

My notes don't seem to consistently post unless I babysit them in the status window. Other than that, none.

Superintendents are completing daily reports completely and accurately

Pros

Easy to set up users and projects. Easy to delete users and archive projects. Transcribing is accurate. Like the ability to add jobsite photos.

Cons

Would like sorting options for projects so you can sort by job #, address, etc. Don't know if jobs and users can be set up from the app or not? If not, that would be a great option for administrators.

Documentation of a project during construction is extremely important. Just ask any attorney. It provides a linear time line of events and simplifies the whole process, making it less likely that the record keeping will fall behind.

Pros

It is a huge time saver. The photographic documentation, backed up with the written or transcribed notes, provides a thorough and linear history of the project. It also automatically records the weather conditions on the day the notes were made. It keeps everything transparent and holds people accountable.

Cons

If a site visit has to be brief and there is not enough time to add notes to each photograph, it would be very helpful if the software allowed the comments to be added later by using the same program.

Pros

The thing I like most about NoteVault are it's ease of use and accessibility. I also like how many different people can use it.

Cons

What I like least about the software is the fact that the least desirable aspect of NotVault is that it isn't not easy to use.

The ability to keep up to date with the building sites we manage and the tasks being performed on said sites and the level of job completion real time.

Pros

Easy to use and can be accessed from many of my devices and ability to use cell phone is a great benefit and also with PC, tablet and laptop all aids in helping me complete my assigned tasks

Cons

Product can be slow over cellular network and if any of the devices you use have poor connectively it has a negative effect on the tasks and pictures you are trying to dispatch

Our reporting became more consistant

Pros

I like the ability to complete your daily reporting on site when it happens vs. going back to the truck and writing it down or waiting till you get to the office. The ability to upload pictures and notes immediately makes life easier. Also the automatic distribution makes it nearly foolproof.

Cons

I had problems getting the software to work correctly in remote locations without service. The tech support team weren't very cooperative. It worked great when I had a solid wifi signal...
