I’ve been using Fieldwire as a foreman for over a year on a complex, high end project. I’ve kinda always been a paper guy, not caring for the digital medium. After using it as long as I have, I cannot imagine working on our current project without it. The power to streamline communication up and down the chains of command in a way that all interested parties can observe and respond to those communications is priceless. With The software’s new custom form building platform we have more and more ways to track information to limit the use of multiple platforms. I’ve been asked numerous times how Fieldwire saves me time on our projects, and while I appreciate the question, and doubtless FW does save time, I think it’s passive benefits outstrip it’s time saving benefits. By that I mean that it’s record keeping abilities prevent confusion, and keep processes flowing. When used well, conversational communication morphs into tasks that generate clarity for future reference. This passive benefits a direct time savings because captured information ends up trapped in amber as it were. Weeks and even months can go by before a generated task reaches a conclusion. By properly tasking, no one has to build bridges across rivers that already had bridges built on them due to forgetting previous conclusions about how to accomplish an objective. I could say much more about Fieldwire but will leave it at just get this software...it’s good.
I have been trying out several different apps to help keep things organized and so far only Fieldwire has been able to keep up. The ability to upload things like plans, tasks and categories though the app is the most beneficial feature this software has. Most other softwares only allow you to edit and upload though the website and view them through the app. Another feature I like with Fieldwire is the message board that is created under each task of the job, which allows you to add people specific to that task. It will making communicating with each of our subs easier and faster. On top of being an efficient app Fieldwire has excellent customer service. They were very polite, answered all of my questions in full detail and they had a quick response time. I am still learning how to use the app most efficiently before I implement it with the crew but I am looking forward to seeing the results! Thank You Fieldwire
My team has struggled midely with keeping up with project tasks and todo's that it was driving me nuts! Some guys take it upon themselves to take notes and document issues, tasks, etc. Themselves; however the younger generation is much more geared towards technology and using their phones... So we had to adapt. Fieldwire is the perfect solution for us. It allows me to setup tasks for the project, the guys can check them off as they complete things, and my managers love being able to see exactly what's out there to be finished for billing purposes. The only thing I hope they can add is an intermediary pricing plan for companies between 5-Unlimited. To go from Free to $30/mo p/user is a big jump even if you only have a team of 5. Something in the 5-15 project range at $15/mo would be perfect until our company grows and can warrant spending the additional money for it. Other than that though it's easily the best app on the market I've seen for managing construction jobs! Great work Fieldwire! Keep it up!
I have been in the construction business for over 35 years. As a GC I have designed many different systems for organization of tasks, projects, subs and suppliers. Every thing from color coded calendars, Gandt charts, index cards, and post-it notes. These worked for me and my office but I was unable to communicate to my subs as I made my notes. Fieldwire on the other hand is all about communicating with the different resources that make up your team. This alone makes it worth learning. The fact that you can keep all your plans and related files with each project and that team members can access and share their markups helps to reduce mistakes or misunderstandings. There has been some resistance from my subs in making the effort to take the time to participate, but as they do, I have had positive feed back from each member that has taken the time to learn about the system. Each morning I receive an email outlining today’s tasks as well priority 1 task coming up with in the next week. I highly recommend everyone that manages single or multiple jobs to adopt this program. Absolutely awesome!! I would be happy to be a contact or reference for anyone considered going adopting this approach to managing any project from a wedding to building a skyscraper . Peter Lee Renaissance Construction
I love this app because of the notifications you can receive. I’m a project engineer for a general contractor and this cuts down on the time spent calling or sending emails to notify your team that you have an rfi to be issued, or task to be tackled. The notifications go straight to my phone when someone on my team assigns me to a task. My superintendent love the checklists you can create, and my project manager loves how collaborative the format is. Instead of calling the foreman in the job when a new task needs to be done, we assign him the task and he knows what needs to be done before the end of day. The only item I would like to see improved is when exporting an RFI to PDF, I would like to the attachments automatically populate at the end of the pdf. At the moment I have to download them separately and add them into the pdf.

Well it's quite simple actually. We believe that we have the best construction app out there because we were in the trenches (on the jobsite) with you. Construction management needs to be tailored for the jobsite. Don't take our word for it, read our reviews, download our app and/or visit our website. It only takes a couple minutes to setup a new project and we don't think you will regret it.
