FACS (field automation communication systems) is a cloud-based construction management software which provides field employees, owners, construction managers and contractors with three project management solutions, including project recorder, project inspector and project controller. FACS’ features enable users to record daily work, track items and activity, as well as manage RFIs, submittals, change orders, and more, all from one platform. As a cloud-based solution, FACS gives users the flexibility to access and manage project information anytime, anywhere, via any internet-enabled device.
The Project Recorder solution enables field personnel to record and manage project data efficiently with drop down lists, built-in notifications, summary reports, full audit tracking and date logging capabilities. Other Project Recorder features allow users to track labor and equipment, manage issues/punch lists/non conformance and store files and photos. Users can also manage forms, plans and markups, as well as archive projects digitally for convenient access and retrieval. A dedicated drawing module allows users to track all versions of their plan sheets and attach accompanying photos, videos or reference forms.
With the Project Inspector solution, users can access and store all of their important data, including material acceptance records and contingency payments. The cost control module links automatically to the work report module, ensuring all field information is instantly available for financial reports. Users can generate reports in actual or forecast mode, to see how much work has been completed and how much work is forecasted to be done. Project Inspector also supports change order management, incentive tracking, index-based pricing, project closeout management, and more. The Project Controller Solution incorporates all of the features included in Project Recorder and Inspector, plus submittal tracking, meeting minutes, messages, requests for information and API access.
