Premier Ceiling & Drywall Firm Known for Construction Excellence Chooses PeerAssist Field Work Order App for Time & Material Tracking



“It's been great so far. We've saved hours per ticket created (we create thousands) and the support team gives us answers to our questions within 15 minutes. Contractors who track T&M for extra work are going to have a great experience and FWO will make your life a lot easier,” says Frank Ciappio.

PeerAssist, a leading provider of construction field productivity solutions, today announced that Jacobson & Company has chosen to track time and material for out-of-scope work on construction projects using PeerAssist’s Field Work Order (FWO) construction app in order to reduce hours of delays and wasted time compared to semi-manual processes.

Jacobson is known as an industry pioneer with over 100 years and an impressive 5 generations of ownership providing quality craftsmanship on construction projects in the New York market. Jacobson is frequently selected as the first choice by leading owners, architects, and general contractors who rely on Jacobson for translating complex design visions into stunning realities. Today the company is known and admired for superb craftsmanship, old fashioned service, and a productive field force that is dedicated to meeting their customers most demanding schedules.

“Jacobson produces thousands of tickets for tracking T&M for extra work, which will now translate to thousands of man-hours saved for their operations teams who can repurpose time from manual processes to doing what Jacobson does so well, service their customers with exceptional performance,” says Jerad Ferrell, Chief Marketing Officer at PeerAssist.

About Jacobson & Company
Gustave Jacobson, the founder of the company, worked for his parents in their small picture framing business which he renamed Jacobson & Company on March 5, 1889. While the new company first operated as a plain plastering contractor, it quickly ascended to ornamental and decorative plastering with over eighty shop craftsmen employed in its heyday. Their installations in that period included the Pompeian Court at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (today it serves as a cafeteria), the Cloisters in Upper Manhattan, the Presidential Palace in Cuba, and many large theaters around the world. The Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California, as well as the grand residences in Newport, R.I., are included in the list of homes in which Jacobson plaster ornamentation was applied. The company did work for many of the leading architects of that period, such as McKim, Meade and White, John Russel Pope, and James Gamble Rodgers. During the first three decades of the twentieth century, Jacobson produced two hard cover catalogs from which ornamentation was ordered and shipped around the world. Jacobson-made ornamentation was exported to South America and Japan, where the company was represented by W.R. Grace & Company and Matsui Company, respectively. The company continued applying ornamental and straight plastering up to 1940, when ornamental design went out of style. In 1932, Gustave's son, Victor Jacobson, anticipating the changing architectural styles, entered and became a pioneer in the architectural acoustics field as a distributor for a leading manufacturer of acoustical ceiling materials. Jacobson is recognized as the premier ceiling and drywall contractor in the New York market. They are frequently the first choice of architects, contractors, and owners who have come to rely on Jacobson to translate complex design visions into stunning realities. Jacobson has completed thousands of projects over the past 100 plus years. Chairman and CEO, Thomas D. Jacobson, represents the fifth-generation family member to lead the company.
