“With the release of the Corecon Mobile app for iPhone/iPad, project team members can reach an advanced level of real-time project management," says Norm Wendl, president of Corecon Technologies.
Huntington Beach, Calif. (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
Corecon Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of web-based construction software, announces the release of Corecon Mobile for Apple’s iPhone and iPad. Following the release of the Corecon Mobile app for Android which was announced in February 2014, the new app was developed for use with Corecon V7, an online estimating, project management and job cost suite of construction software.
Serving as the next generation of Corecon’s mobile solution, the Corecon Mobile app not only includes all of the tools available in the current version, which is browser based, but now has greater functionality and an improved user interface that takes full advantage of Apple’s iPhone or iPad capabilities.
This new version was completely rebuilt on the iOS platform and tailored for jobsite functions. For example, field staff can take progress photos, update checklist or punchlist items or import contacts directly from their mobile device. Apple’s speech-to-text can also be used with the new app to transcribe voice dictation into text whenever it may be inconvenient to text.
Since all of Corecon’s products connect to a common platform, no synchronization is required. Thus, Daily Logs or Timecards entered directly in the iPhone/iPad app will immediately appear in Corecon V7, Corecon’s flagship web-based solution for estimating, project management and job cost control.
The features of the Corecon Mobile for iPhone/iPad app include:
- Contacts (import from phone, share contacts via SMS)
- Project Photos (view, take and upload new photos)
- Project Directory with the ability to view companies with expired insurance
- Punchlist (ability to take and upload new photos)
- Daily Logs - (ability to add weather on the fly, receive materials based on POs etc.)
- Time Entry
- Purchase Orders
- Misc. Expenses
- To Do List
- Alerts (on any features in Corecon)
- Inbound Email
“Mobility from jobsite to office is commonplace in the construction industry, and smartphones and tablets provide construction professionals with convenient, on-the- go computing ability no matter their location,” explains Corecon President Norman Wendl. “With the release of the Corecon Mobile app for iPhone/iPad, project team members can reach an advanced level of real-time project management by enjoying the full capabilities of their more portable smartphone and tablet devices.”
The Corecon Mobile app for iPhone/iPad is free to subscribers of Corecon V7 and can be downloaded on the iTunes App Store. More information about Corecon Mobile app for iPhone and iPad is available at http://www.corecon.com/Products/CoreconMobile.aspx.
