Labor is the biggest cost to subcontractors, and this new feature will reduce the errors in payroll and provide more accurate cost reports to protect your company’s profits.
Bridging the gap between the office and the field requires a project management system that incorporates real time updates from an integrated mobile application. To ensure successful adoption of the mobile solution among your field workers, the mobile app must be intuitive and capture all the pertinent daily job information to help them do their job better and quicker.
eSUB, the leading project management and document control software designed specifically for subcontractors in the construction industry, is excited to release the latest version of its Field Works mobile application. The Field Works mobile app 3.4 offers enhancements to significantly improve ease of use, ensure the accuracy of information submitted, and increase documentation to reduce risk mitigation for subcontractors.
Add multiple images to field notes to increase documentation
Many say that a picture is worth a thousand words. But at eSUB, we believe that a picture is worth a thousand dollars! The Field Works mobile app has been enhanced to provide field users such as your Project Foreman the ability to add up to six images to one Field Note. By adding multiple images to a Field Note, subcontractors can improve the documentation of issues in the field to mitigate their risk on projects.
Ensure accuracy of information with crew labor hour totals
In addition to Field Notes, the value of the Field Works mobile app for the Project Foreman is the ability to track time for labor workers. As the Project Foreman is entering labor hours within the Daily Report, the total labor hours for the day is totaled to ensure the accuracy of information before submission. Labor is the biggest cost to subcontractors, and this new feature will reduce the errors in payroll and provide more accurate cost reports to protect your company’s profits.
User interface updates to improve ease of use and field user adoption
The Field Works mobile app features an intuitive user interface utilizing native app functionality such as GPS, talk-to-text, and camera file upload, reducing the time it takes to complete daily reports to minutes versus hours. Field Works mobile app 3.4 now includes native iOS functionality of swipe navigation for quick ability to delete crews or other items within in Daily Reports. Additional enhancements to the user interface include bigger buttons improving the overall user experience for the Foreman.
