Service and Field Managers: Collaborate 2018 is For You!

Multiple work crews and large inventories, checklists and project logs, constantly shifting dispatch schedules, hundreds of work orders, warranty agreements and repair histories to track — if these sound familiar, you might be a service technician or field manager! Your workloads are hard enough, but are you equipped to take advantage of an increasingly intelligent job site?

Viewpoint’s technology solutions can help you simplify your jobsites while making your work more productive. And we’re inviting you to find out how at our Collaborate 2018 User Conference (Oct. 15-18 in Portland, OR). From best practices in mobile device management to tracking equipment and materials to improving safety practices, you’ll learn how to better equip your field or service staff with the tools and information they need to get work done faster, better and safer. We’ve created a special track just for you — the field or service manager.

This is your opportunity to maximize the value of your Viewpoint software, leveraging it to meet your needs. We’ve put together 66 sessions specific to construction field or service management. We will offer product deep dives, workflow training within the actual software and more. Learn how to access more data in the field, while streamlining processes. See the latest forms, templates and technologies you could be using for data collection. Hear how to best manage mobile devices, more efficiently collect time, track materials and manage equipment in the field. And, see how collaborative software solutions are making it easier to work in real time.

To provide just a glimpse into the content you can expect, here is a sample of some of the sessions you can look forward to attending:

Building an Information Bridge Between Field and Office

Accurate, real-time project information is essential to identifying jobs that are at risk for profit fade, not to mention to remain competitive in the construction industry. Despite advancements and investment in technology, your organization may continue to struggle with the inefficiencies and information gaps resulting from tolerance for multiple tools and individuals’ manual processes. Attend this session to hear how you can bridge the gap and effectively integrate field data collection processes into a home office single source of truth for project status information.

Realizing Efficiencies with Viewpoint Field Tools

Viewpoint is extremely excited to bring Keystyle Data Solutions into the family! These integrated field solutions bring greater efficiencies to your business. In this session, you will be provided an overview of solutions that improve workflows for requesting and receiving materials on-site, managing equipment and capturing time and productivity for your workforce.

Mitigating the Risks of Quality and Safety

Learn how you can use Field View to improve the capture and management of quality items, reduce project delays, and minimize both the frequency and severity of safety incidents. Standardize your quality and safety programs so you can proactively identify trends and spend your time solving problems, not managing paperwork.
