About Fieldwire

Fieldwire is a web and mobile construction software solution for efficient task management, plan viewing and versioning, issue tracking, and team collaboration from the job site to the office. Access Free, Pro, Business, or Enterprise tier accounts within your web browser, while connecting to your project data via smartphones and tablets on our iOS and Android mobile apps. Share optimized, version-controlled floor plans and blueprints in real time, enabling contractor teams in the field to view and add annotations, markups and hyperlinks all while offline. When they reconnect to the internet, all that new data will sync to all devices and users connected to the project.

Take progress photos, add checklists and hyperlinks, export your as-built drawings, and leverage useful reporting features to conduct status updates, inspections, and punch lists. Issue tracking tools organize problems by trades and location, making them easy to submit via walkthroughs and assign them to the proper subcontractor. Aid crucial inspections with pre-loaded categories and checklist templates, and leave precise markups, including measurements, directly on your floor plans. And when you upload new versions of your drawing sets, our software will overlap those current sheets over the older ones so you can easily reference each version.

In addition, Fieldwire provides integrated task management capabilities, speeding up on-site productivity and monitoring cost and man-hours. Creating and assigning tasks to your team is as easy as a few clicks, and utilizing the built-in hashtag and “@” symbol features makes it even easier. Schedule work by setting due dates for each tasks, and use our calendar view to manage your 3 week lookahead. You can also import tasks from Excel and send automated PDF and spreadsheet reports that are fully customizable. Subcontractors can manage valuable labor, keep all their work updates in one easy-to-find location, and your projects will run smoother than they ever have before. Spend less time organizing and more time working!

    I am able to coordinate with trades and consultants quickly and effectively. I can usually access drawings faster than they can when speaking over the phone. All of the files are very accessible and the program is user friendly

    Pros

    -Having access to all of the drawings at your fingertips while on site
    -Very easy to search for information through drawings as the hyperlinks copy automatically
    -easy to compare new drawings to older versions
    -easily access all rfi's and linked files

    Cons

    -Program slows down when adding mass amounts of drawings
    -Would be helpful to have folders within the Photos section similar to that of the Files section

    Essential for Project Documentation & Organization

    Reviewed on 2020-11-05

    Positive, I highly recommend this software especially for any project documentation tracking purposes. Still room for improvement but I choose Fieldwire over its Autodesk competitor.

    Pros

    1. Image Shared Shared Service. The whole team & subs can see image documentation in seconds. Though needs a permanent time stamp feature OPTION & native high resolution feature.
    2. Reports are as detailed as you want them to be. I like that reports can be customized (though to a limited extent). You can attach images, files, plans, etc... Though upload file size limit needs to increase from 25mb max.
    3. Tasks are an interesting feature still trying to implement into field use. Great that you can track tasks from text messages, emails, images, attachments, etc... Like video option but would like to see that available outside of tasks 7 attach to plan functions on all platforms even PC.

    Cons

    1. No permanent Time stamp on images taken via phone. Time stamp feature is placed outside of image as reference. If image is exported their is no way to distinguish veracity of date & time taken. THIS IS MY NUMBER ONE REQUEST!!!
    2. Would like to be able to attach images within Fieldwire to Daily Reports without duplicating images (that's why time stamp on image is needed).
    3. Improved search capabilities. Right now searching/filtering through images is limited. Should be able to search by date range of when image taken or file uploaded as well. Their needs to be a better organizational structure for uploading images to fieldwire via app. Users should be able to search through images to attach them to pertinent documentation without creating duplicates or recreating in another format. Images should be searchable and attachable to files without them originally taken within a Fieldwire Form .
    4. Attachment upload limited to 25mb. Sometimes project plans exceed 100mb. Should not need to split up submittals/rfi's/files/plans.
    5. Fieldwire Upload Image documentation compression software. I use a Android Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5g, images are horribly compressed and sometimes looked pixelated. Yet with my iphone 6 (several years old) images look regular. Should be options for quality of image upload. Panoramic shots should be a feature without destroying them to under a 1mb.
    6. Video recording to 8 seconds is limiting. w/ 5g phones making way video quality & length needs overhaul

    I really enjoy using this program and will recommend it to all my follow roofers.

    Pros

    With over 300 roofs currently this program allows me to follow the status of all of them. Plus the ability to have my foreman's enter and update remotely enables to office to have a live updated on our current projects.

    Cons

    I didn't like not being about to run a report on all my projects vs only being able to run a report on task.
    Also I want to be able to rename the work task to HOUSES. I also don't like that you can move your side bar. Ex.... the list is Plans, Task, Photos, Form, Files, People. You can't adjust the order. Also with you are submitting a photo. You have to either take a photo or use one previously uploaded. You can't use a photo from your phone's storage and upload immediately.

    Almost awesome, but has lots of missed opportunities

    Almost zero.

    Pros

    The customer service has been great ( we need to use them frequently ). They are quick to resolve the many issues we have.

    Cons

    1. You can't make real templates for repetitive project types.
    2. You can't organize projects on the home screen. We tend to have dozens of projects in different stages going on and there is not a way to organize how they sorted. They cannot be flagged or colored coded either.
    3. In certain situations you need to follow strict naming conventions of imported files....it's not something I want to spend my time worrying about.
    4. The task viewer is weak. The text doesn't wrap so most of the task is cut off. You cannot control the width of the columns, their names, or colors ( great for the color blind )
    5. Features are buried and are inconsistent between desktop and mobile.
    6. The app KILLS battery life.
    7. There is not a way to leave general notes or comments.
    8. Reports are weak.
    9. If my boss ( who doesn't actually use it, but likes the idea of the app) didn't make me, I would have ditched this a while ago.

    Team collaboration has improved. Plans at the click of a button.

    Team collaboration has improved. Plans at the click of a button.

    Pros

    The software makes accessing plans and collaborating with your project team a breeze. Especially in field where managers rely on ipads, the mobile application is easy for quick scaling, take offs, etc. Not to mention the ability to link plans, RFIs, files, and forms to ensure small details and changes aren't missed. The tasks allow for project tracking, documentation, and knocking out your punch list. Not to mention, excellent customer service.

    Cons

    Improve plan layering capability. Exporting plans is a pain. Should be easier to export or print directly from application, rather than sending a web link via email. Could include functions to markup photos taken using the app. That way key features in the photo could be highlighted for future reference or for others on the project team to quickly see.
