Portland, OR (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
Viewpoint Construction Software is pleased to announce fully integrated Viewpoint Mobile Field Manager, Powered by Resource Commander®, connecting field users with operations and the back-office. The Mobile Field Manager solution will be available on Android and iOS platforms and offers Viewpoint customers an extension to V6, delivering the ability to capture time, equipment usage and production in the field, in or out of network. With a seamless integration to Viewpoint V6 Software’s Payroll, Job Cost and Equipment modules, customers can make sure everyone is connected and gather, disseminate and analyze data from the field making a real and measurable impact on their bottom line.
According to Rob Humphreys, Vice President of Product Management, “Our customers clearly told us about their frustration with passing paperwork back and forth between the field and office – leading to time-consuming double data entry and error corrections. Mobile Field Manager allows field teams to easily record their information on smart phones or tablets. Office personnel have controls in place to review and approve information before updating V6. The increased visibility for all parties involved, especially for operation managers and accounting, is pivotal in keeping up on daily activities and tracking against the budget, providing steady confidence on how projects are performing.”
“Mobile Field Manager is changing how fast and accurately we can track and analyze data including hours and production rates down to the day, week or month. The field users have embraced it and like that they can enter everything, hours and production, in one place,” stated Eric Elfner, Director of Information Systems, CG Schmidt, Inc., a leading construction management and general contracting firm based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. “It has also improved accuracy since superintendents can only enter time or progress reports for open job phases, and it has eliminated double data entry and the need to track down errors.”
Viewpoint Mobile Field Manager is available to order and will ship late September. Out of the box, it will include a client/server component, a web application and native mobile applications and will provide support either off or online - key criteria voiced from customers.
Viewpoint is partnering with ACS Connect on the development of the Mobile Field Manager product. ACS Connect has deep roots in the construction industry and is a Viewpoint Development Partner, with valued expertise and years of experience providing mobile solutions.
