It's so easy to organize issues in LATISTA--it's effortless--and getting reports out to subcontractors is so much quicker that you get a better return.
Reston, Va. (PRWEB) August 22, 2008
Software and services provider Latista and the United States' 32nd largest contractor and 16th largest general builder, Brasfield & Gorrie, reported a successful collaboration on Atlanta's 1010 Midtown luxury condominium project. Brasfield & Gorrie used LATISTA Field web-based, mobile software to improve the efficiency of its quality assurance and deficiency correction procedures. The details of the project can be found in a case study available on Latista's website.
Brasfield & Gorrie's 1010 Midtown project is a $159 million, 35-story condominium in downtown Atlanta. With 30,000 sq. ft. of retail space and an 820-space parking garage attached, the building forms phase one of a three-phase plan to create for Atlanta an upscale living, shopping and entertainment district that rivals Chicago's Magnificent Mile and New York City's Madison Avenue.
LATISTA Field software and mobile tablet PCs enabled architects, engineers and managers to access plans on the job site, document deficiencies, and easily synchronize information with subcontractors and other third parties. The system shortened subcontractor issue identification-to-resolution cycles from several days to less than 24 hours, enabling the project team to meet its goals of improved quality and faster completion.
Brasfield & Gorrie liked the Latista system so much that they are deploying it on future projects. Steve Gilbert, Brasfield & Gorrie Corporate Operations IT Manager, said, "It's so easy to organize issues in LATISTA--it's effortless--and getting reports out to subcontractors is so much quicker that you get a better return."
Latista Executive Vice President Chris Ramsey praised Brasfield & Gorrie for deciding to automate their quality assurance processes. "Brasfield & Gorrie is truly at the forefront in the areas of quality management and construction technology," said Ramsey. "As a leader in the construction industry, Latista is proud to welcome Brasfield & Gorrie as a customer."
