Latista has introduced their comprehensive construction field management app to the iPhone, complimenting its existing cloud and iPad app. Latista for iPhone has issues and document management capabilities used by capital project owners, general contractors and sub-contractors to reduce re-work, paper and delays.
Latista Technologies, the leader in field management solutions for construction, has introduced their new version 2.1 app to the iPhone. Latista for iPhone will have the same digital issue management tools already on the iPad. Latista for iPhone is available in the App Store for a free download and trial. Watch a demonstration on how the market-leading app improves communication between project team members.
According to a published ENR study, 50 percent of general contractors and 49 percent of sub-contractors use iPhones at construction sites. In Latista for iPhone, general contractors and sub-contractors will have the ability to manage quality, safety, punch lists and commissioning issues. Additionally, they will be able to access and markup documents from their iPhone.
“We are excited to put the number one enterprise construction collaboration app into the hands of more users in the field, shortening projects’ issue-resolution time,” according to Chris Ramsey, chief executive officer (CEO) at Latista. “This new release offers complete issue management and provides greater access to documents in the field.”
Users can communicate project issues via text, calls and emails right from the iPhone app. Using the app, responsible parties will be able to electronically capture issues, review project drawings and quickly resolve issues from the iPhone.
