New York, NY – May 1, 2015 – FieldLens, a mobile field management platform for the construction industry, today announced the launch of a new daily reporting feature unlike anything currently available in the industry.
A typical construction project sees at least one daily report created by field personnel from each of the contractors on the project. Larger projects require manually collecting detailed information from multiple supers and foremen at the end of a long workday. The process is not collaborative and field personnel are essentially forced to recall everything they managed, observed, and dealt with throughout the day.
New York, NY – Superintendents hold the construction industry’s most difficult job, but they are also among construction’s happiest workers, according to a survey conducted by FieldLens, published today in an ebook titled Superviews: Stories, Stats, and Secrets of Construction Superintendents.
FieldLens posed 12 questions on job satisfaction and technology habits to 163 construction professionals to gather data on superintendents, a group rarely featured in construction industry surveys. The ebook includes survey data as well as information about superintendent salaries and stories on how some superintendents ended up in their career.
