FieldLens Presents Social Communication App Designed for Construction Industry Project Management at DEMO Mobile 2013
FieldLens founders Doug Chambers and Matt Sena demonstrate realtime collaboration tools for construction professionals in the Mobile Work category on the DEMO Mobile 2013 stage
San Francisco, CA – April 17, 2013 — FieldLens today announced they will present a social communication app designed for the construction industry at DEMO Mobile 2013, a launch event exclusively concentrated on the best new mobile technologies based on design, innovation and market potential.
FieldLens is a mobile and web app providing construction professionals with tools for realtime jobsite communication and collaboration. The app applies familiar social media concepts like newsfeeds, photos, video, tagging and sharing to daily field communication such as task management, jobsite scheduling, safety audits, progress reporting, punchlist and much more.
The broad communication capabilities offered by FieldLens are unparalleled in the construction industry. Absolutely every form of jobsite communication can be done in FieldLens, including basic task management for the whole team, issuing reports, private communication within companies, open collaboration between companies, and even basic daily field correspondence such as submitting a request to the office for material orders or supplies.
FieldLens allows construction professionals to work more efficiently than ever before, by putting an end to the series of site visits, phone calls, emails, meetings, and paperwork typically associated with construction jobsite issues and tasks. Everyone, from general contractors and subcontractors, to architects, engineers and owners, will be able to communicate and collaborate in realtime using any mobile device.
“The US construction industry spends billions annually on technology, yet the industry has failed to develop a platform that addresses the constant communication breakdowns that occur in the field on jobsites every day,” said Doug Chambers, CEO of FieldLens. “FieldLens is a tool that optimizes the industry’s standards of communication by making them social and mobile so that construction professionals can do their jobs faster, easier, and safer. The jobsite becomes more connected than ever before because everyone has the information they need when they need it, on their phones and tablets in the field and on their computer in the office.”
FieldLens will provide a live, six-minute demonstration of how the app will be used by construction professionals on the DEMO Mobile 2013 stage today at 9:40 a.m. PST and will host live demonstrations beginning today at Booth D2 in the DEMO Mobile 2013 pavilion.
“FieldLens has digitized an industry that, until now, hadn’t experienced the full impact of IT,” said Erick Schonfeld, executive producer of DEMO. “Communication in the multi-billion dollar construction industry will never be the same once FieldLens enters the marketplace, and we are thrilled to have them launch on the DEMO Mobile 2013 stage.”
FieldLens is currently in private beta and will be available for all members of the industry in the summer of 2013.
