FieldLens Launches Field Management App Designed to Make Smartphones the Most Important Tool on the Construction Jobsite
New York, NY, March 3, 2014 – FieldLens today announced the official launch of their mobile field management application designed to help construction professionals effectively document, assign, and manage jobsite issues using any smartphone, tablet or the Web. FieldLens is the first and only social media technology developed specifically for the construction industry that enables entire project teams to instantly connect and collaborate with one another. Everyone on the jobsite, from subcontractors and general contractors to designers and owners, can use FieldLens for streamlined communication and collaboration in the field.
Using FieldLens on the Jobsite:
- Information is organized into project-specific newsfeeds that are filterable and contextually searchable, similar to popular social media platforms.
- Users can coordinate tasks and communicate privately with their co-workers, assign and track jobsite issues with other companies, and easily export branded reports and live project feeds to both users and non-FieldLens users alike.
- Ability to work online or offline to make sure FieldLens is always available, regardless of location.
- Communication can include multimedia like construction drawing mark-ups, photos, videos, voice notes and more.
- A digital directory of all companies registered in FieldLens as well as project specific directories.
- Available on iOS, Android, and the Web.
“FieldLens takes the best of what we’ve learned from social media and mobile technology and brings it to construction management,” said FieldLens CEO and founder Doug Chambers. “The key to success on the jobsite is making sure project teams can quickly and effectively communicate with each other no matter where they are. Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter connect people using realtime newsfeeds that allow for instant photo sharing and news updates. FieldLens uses a similar process, but has made it more robust to match the real-world workflows and needs of construction projects.”
Chambers developed the idea for FieldLens after working as a project manager for more than a decade on projects of all sizes, including high-profile sites like the New York Times Building and 4 World Trade Center. Seeing first-hand how every company on the project suffered because they didn’t have the proper technology, Chambers realized that the construction industry is in need of a powerful tool that connects project teams as simply and intuitively as popular social media platforms do.
“I didn’t know how much we needed this product until I got my hands on it,” said Principal & Designer at Brunelleschi Construction and star of HGTV’s Cousins Undercover, Anthony Carrino. “It has dramatically changed our business for the better. Successful construction projects are all about managing time, people and money. FieldLens helps us manage people’s tasks and the time it takes them to get each task done.”
After nearly two years in development and more than 1,000 companies already using the app, FieldLens officially launches at CONEXPO, a leading industry trade show taking place in Las Vegas, NV, March 4-8, 2014. Starting today, anyone in the construction industry can sign up at https://fieldlens.com/ for a 30-day free trial and start changing the way they communicate on the jobsite.
FieldLens helps every member of the construction industry – including subcontractors, general contractors, designers and owners – communicate more effectively so that they can spend less time managing information and more time building better. To learn more visit https://fieldlens.com/.
