Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a Vancouver-based provider of enterprise mobile apps for business process automation, today announced a software solution that helps contractors, architects, and builders gain efficiencies and ensure projects are completed on time and on budget. The solution allows day-to-day tasks to be automated on smartphones and tablets, reducing paperwork and manual reporting while providing information flow to and from the field.
With Flowfinity, teams in the field can capture data for submission into a central database, and access enterprise information from wherever they are. Fully customizable forms, requests and documents such as site surveys, inspection reports, punch lists, and incident reports can be completed at the job site on a smartphone or tablet and submitted back to head office in real time.
Tools for collaboration provide streamlined communication between contractors, consultants and other project stakeholders. RFIs, submittals, change orders and approvals can be accessed immediately, resulting in shorter cycles and better documentation.
Managing teams and tracking costs is also more efficient with mobile scheduling, dispatch and time and materials reports. Timesheets and materials lists can be completed on a mobile device at the time of work instead of after the fact for faster, more accurate job costing.
“Flowfinity has a unique solution that delivers more efficiency, timeliness and accuracy in managing construction tasks and teams,” said Larry Wilson, VP of Sales and Marketing, Flowfinity. “The result is that the solution not only reduces delays and total time spent on a construction project, but also provides an audit trail with thorough documentation of the project.”
