PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Buildup Technologies, the maker of the easiest to use punch list, task management and inspections software for construction today announced the release of its Sequencing feature to its mobile and web software platform. Buildup is the only construction software with real sequencing capabilities, which allows construction professionals to more effectively manage tasks and issues within their construction project.
Because complex project construction involves multiple subcontractors that work in sequences, the workflow and the task process may need to be micromanaged. For example, on a large scale, commercial construction development, there will be one task that needs to be assigned to multiple different subcontractors or trades in a particular sequence. Historically, the superintendent or field team would have to micromanage this process through a series of phone calls and emails. With Buildup's new sequencing feature, this process is drastically simplified. Construction professionals are now able to add multiple subcontractors to a single task, create an order of the sequence, and automatically notify subcontractors, general contractors and project managers when the sequence has been completed. Buildup then automatically informs the next subcontractor in the sequence that the prior sub-task was completed.
"Prior to this feature, when a task requires multi-step sequences and multiple subcontractors, a construction professional would have to enter a task multiple times and assign it to different subs in their construction management app. With Buildup's new sequencing feature, you simply enter it once and assign the appropriate subs to the task in the order or sequence that is needed. This saves time in the field, speeds up the task, reduces wait times, and eliminates micromanagement of the different subcontractors," says Stephen Haskin, VP of Operations at Buildup.
The release of this feature was in response to numerous customer requests and feedback, and is available immediately to all current Buildup users.
