Beyond the Basics
Today’s homebuilders need access to jobsite information 24/7. FieldCollaborate from Computer Presentation Systems goes beyond the basics of construction scheduling to be an enterprisewide construction-management solution for field personnel, corporate staff, and vendors. The product offers lot-by-lot automated scheduling, punch item management, quality inspections, safety assessments, document collaboration, email notifications, reporting, and more. A Vendor Portal and a Buyer Portal help keep everyone in the loop. What makes this product so unique is that quality inspections tie directly to lot schedules and tasks to ensure greater quality throughout construction. Also, it adds CRM (customer-relationship management) capabilities for email generation and follow-up. In the past year, the company enhanced that Quality Inspection feature and upgraded document sharing and collaboration to link with Citrix ShareFile, which gives workers up-to-date drawings, images, documents, and notes.
“The construction skilled labor shortage equates to a need for greater efficiencies for quality assurance. FieldCollaborate offers this with its overhaul on its Quality Inspection feature.” -Constructech editors
