Windover Construction - Field Super review

At first, Notevault was accepted easily, but over the past 2 years, I have really improved on using the software daily. My biggest tip to others using in the company is setting up more Categories immediately when a job is open, use individual NOTES for each sub/trade or floor to keep clean. I do wish Notevault did have a SAFETY tab like Notes, Labor, Equipment, and Materials... would no doubt make this software AAA+, but actually missing that is opening up our company to look for a software that does include this feature.

Pros

- Well thought and layed out.
- Easy to use features on both computer and phone app.
- Auto-generating and distribution of report the following day.
- Customer Service - any time of the day I have gotten excellent help on minor issues.
- Cloud holds information for 8yrs.

Cons

- Need a tab for SAFETY like Notes, Labor, Equipment, Materials.
- Categories in Settings: There should be many more pre-entered categories for Commercial Construction (all trades, inspections, weather)

Fine.

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.

Best Note Keeping App for Construction

Pros

Being able to write notes by talking to the phone instead of typing them makes it incredibly useful when walking big construction projects. The ability to attach pictures to notes is also quite useful.

Cons

I wish that the functionality with the other related app, "Crew!" would work better... it has been a little while since I've used the app and have heard it has been fixed, though. Can't wait to try it again!

Adaptable for Multi Small Projects

The fast past of visiting multiple small projects over a giant campus makes notetaking nearly impossible. But the voice dictation/transcription feature connected with photos is a huge help in documenting my daily work

Pros

With the "categories" I am able to customize the daily reports to manage and document multiple small projects from one single sheet

Cons

Sometime the voice dictation and sync-ing will take longer than expected.

40 Years of Daily Reports

Going on 4 years of using NoteVault for daily documentation. The ease of just describing the day and backing up with photos while out in the field is amazing. Send to Owner and Architect the day after with question or challenges identified is a gift.

Pros

Ease of use and the end product.

Cons

Cannot have more than 1 user on the subscription. A single project subscription should be able to share with foreman etc. for daily documentation.

NoteVault End User Functionality Review

Pros

The auto populate is very handy. Customer Support did help me in use of the auto populate from previous days work.

Cons

New info input is difficult to use immediately. What is slightly cumbersome is when a name, company, trade, or classification is added that information does not make the list as I can see it. In order to use that new information I must choose something else from the pull down, save and finish, and the edit before the new information comes in. I am happy to go over that with Customer Support because maybe I'm doing something incorrect.

I can only say with NoteVault is very reassuring in capturing the day

Pros

Simple and easy to use software that allowed for multiple people in the office to be trained. It also allowed for notes to be sent to sub-contractors to show progress of workers or lack there of

Cons

There was many faults with the programs so hard to answer. But the only issue I could think was when using the vocal note taking aspect words were missing.

Long Time User

The greatest asset of NoteVault to me is the time that it saves me in generating my safety reports. I used to dread sitting down and downloading pictures, typing my comments and corrections and then generating the report. It used to take me an hour minimal to get a single report out! With NoteVault, this morning I edited 3 different job site inspections and sent the reports to the people that needed them within 15 minutes for all of them!!

Pros

I truly enjoy the flexibility of the application, snap pictures and speak the comments and within an hour - the report is generated and ready for edit.

Cons

Being there at the start, they have worked through a lot of bugs over the past 10 years. There is really nothing that deters me from using it - I works great now and has for many years.

Note vault review

Note vault is a definite time saver... as an old timer that has progressed through the industry from the pre-cell phone days to present. Never have I thought DFR's would be so easy ... Walk around the job site, voice transcribes notes add pictures with details.. any little thing can be notated in real time. Now, I couldn't imagine doing DFR's without it....Thanks Note Vault!!!!

Pros

Ease of use

Cons

Finding things in past DFR's

Great service for documenting and reporting

Notevault makes it simple to document a report every time I do a site visit. I snap a couple of photos in the app of work progress or really anything I want to document, such as a punch list item, incident, photo of material I need to purchase, etc... Then write or dictate a brief (or detailed) description. Notevault does the rest! The next day I get a beautiful PDF report with all of the information, even includes weather, location, time, and name of person taking the report automatically. All images are stored on their server and I can download them to my computer or phone at any time. Overall I find this product useful in running my projects and highly recommend it to anyone looking for ways to streamline documentation and reporting.

Pros

Ease of use / automatically generated PDFs

Cons

The website is difficult to use, especially when downloading pictures, I can only download one at a time. Also, downloading reports from website is very slow and cumbersome.
