Portland, Ore. — Viewpoint Construction Software, providing construction software that integrates and MSI Data, a provider of field service management software, announced today a partnership that offers Viewpoint customers streamlined management of inspections in the office and in the field. The partnership combines Viewpoint V6 with MSI Data’s VEIL Mobile Inspection Software, providing Viewpoint customers simple, drag and drop creation of native mobile inspection templates, a cross-platform mobile inspection app for iOS, Android or Windows mobile devices, and centralized inspection management.
Field inspections, whether for jobsite safety, equipment condition, preventive maintenance or regulatory compliance, are a vital field-driven business process for the construction industry. Unfortunately, manual methods of performing and managing field inspections with paper or disconnected spreadsheets can be a detriment to a contractor’s business through poor field productivity, lack of centralized inspection visibility, and safety due to difficulty enforcing consistency. VEIL automates inspection management and field data collection for a variety of construction processes, including safety inspections, checklists, audits, site surveys, observations and more.
“Contractors are looking for easy to use tools to provide consistent and efficient processes in conducting the inspections necessary to meet safety, equipment management or regulatory compliances. VEIL Inspection Software allows users to capture data automatically from V6 to the VEIL mobile device, ensuring inspections are appropriately recorded and managed,” said Rob Humphrey’s Vice President Product Development at Viewpoint. “In working with MSI Data, we are providing our customer’s choices to help improve practices and trim costs to best affect their bottom line.”
“Our focus is to deliver the best possible software for field force automation,” said Harvey Shovers, President of MSI Data. “Accomplishing that goal by working with partners that are software leaders in their respective vertical markets is a critical part of that strategy. The market recognizes Viewpoint as a clear leader in construction technology space and we are extremely happy to be able to assist Viewpoint and their customers in getting the best possible solutions for automating their field inspections.”
