Viewpoint Construction Software has announced that Costain has selected Viewpoint as a technology partner, purchasing Field View (formerly Priority1). Field View offers contractors a flexible and powerful framework for re-engineering any paper-based process and managing day-to-day project operations like defect management, snagging/punch lists, quality control, auditing, compliance, and health & safety and environment through the power and simplicity of tablets.
After a thorough review to find the most suitable mobile system, Costain selected Field View and plans to implement its use companywide in an effort to reduce the amount of paperwork required on jobs.
“Field View is a way of digitizing our paper-based forms out in the field. Instead of taking a traditional sheet of paper around to several locations for signatures, a digital form can be distributed to multiple people for approval instantly,” stated Costain Mobile BIM Technician, Harrison O’Hara. “This saves not only time, but also paper, which equates to both efficiency and carbon reductions.”
