What is Fieldwire?

Fieldwire is a mobile-first (iPad / iPhone, Android) collaboration platform designed for construction foremen, superintendents and engineers. The application allows field workers to access up-to-date information like blueprints, files and tasks directly on their mobile device. Fieldwire focuses on the effective collaboration of field workers around three core use cases: Plan viewing & versioning; Issue tracking; Task management & scheduling. The collaboration platform is structured around plans and trades allowing users to create tasks attached to specific locations on plans as well as add comments, photos and annotations in each of them. Tasks are automatically uploaded to a centralized server (for automatic archiving and reporting) and dispatched to the other members on the project through wifi and cellular network. Fieldwire works both offline and online allowing users to continue working in conditions where little or no network connectivity is available.

We use Fieldwire to enhance the exchange of information between the office and field, quality control, real-time access to project information such as drawings, RFIs, submittals, and documentation. The mobile app is invaluable in the field.
  • Quality control, tagging a picture on the drawings is particularly helpful.
  • Assigning tasks to field personnel.
  • Having all pertinent files instantly accessible for review from the field.
  • At times it is difficult adding new drawings and keeping everything organized as I would like.
We are an electrical contactor and Fieldwire has exceeded my expectations. I personally am still learning new things, but my guys in the field are showing me new things all the time. We have added new licenses and expect to continue adding more users.
  • Quality control.
  • Access to information.
  • Documentation.
  • Punch lists have shrunk to a minimum.
Fieldwire is a much better value.

We used Fieldwire to manage long-term projects. We found the need to find project management software to help us better organize and deploy our projects and share project information and timelines with our field techs and engineering teams. This software was deployed in place to close gaps and improve productivity.
  • Excellent documentation and sharing of data.
  • Easily used by field techs and provides two-way communication.
  • Easily able to revise drawings in the field.
  • The software can freeze sometimes.
  • The mobile app does not work well when you have low cell service.
  • No option to export old versions of prints.
We used Fieldwire to increase our overall productivity for our engineers and for our installers and techs in the field, so our techs could have everything in front of them when needed. Sometimes the software can be dependent on cell service and when in a remote construction area it becomes hard to pull the information.
  • Price
  • Gantt Charts
  • Mobile usage
  • Helps productivity
  • Decreased return trips
  • Saves time and hours
Fieldwire for sure has better mobile usage, however, Smartsheet has better organization and charts. Ideally using both software together would help us achieve our goals and what we needed but the cost to run both software will cost you more than what other larger project management software competitors would charge for the same service.

Fieldwire is used by our operations team, which consists of both field users like supers and also project managers. This allows our supers to have instant access to their plans at all times. They can mark up their plans, insert photos, and email the office team with any issues, as shown on the plans. It has made our supers more efficient and assisted in demonstrating field issues to the office team as well as subcontractors.
  • View the most up to date plans
  • Mark up plans
  • The ability to mark up photos after uploaded
Fieldwire is excellent for anyone who needs to view and consult drawings as part of their job. Anyone on a construction site can benefit from using Fieldwire.
  • It has allowed us to catch issues before they compound on site.
  • It allows supers to look at their plans from anywhere on-site through the ease of an iPad.
Fieldwire is much more cost-effective for the same features as PlanGrid.
Fieldwire is always on hand to answer questions. It also constantly releases new features based on feedback.

Fieldwire is used by our installation crew and project managers. We use this platform to communicate our building plans to crew members. Crew members can communicate back with our team or others outside the platform. This solves many issues common to construction, such as plan version control and RFC and RFI requests. Fieldwire is indispensable for troubleshooting issues. All of my service crew have every single set of plans in their pockets at all times.
  • Communicating RFI and RFC requests from crew to management.
  • Easy to use mobile format for crew.
  • I wish more trades used it.
  • If it was cheaper, I would have more users.
Fieldwire is perfect for any company that utilizes plans and markups. It allows our field staff to have all the info needed and to make reports or add photos to our plan archive. This can also ensure the plans we are using are the most current version. End-of-day reports give our office staff an excellent window onto the progress of a job.
  • We have grown in size.
  • We spend fewer man hours traveling from site to site to monitor progress.
They have always been very responsive to any changes that we have asked for. We have never had a technical issue.

Fieldwire is used throughout our entire firm to expedite and organize field data collected during site inspections and forensic investigations. We utilize the software to document construction deficiencies and create timelines, progression reports and forensic documentation of a building deficiency from start to finish. This data can then be used to implement repair protocols during restoration.
  • Organizes data for individual tasks in one location.
  • Provides access to all team members, allowing fluid teamwork.
  • The software is geared toward general contractors. We are actively providing feedback to gear it toward engineers, architects, and design professionals.
  • I would like to see more options for mark-ups.
Fieldwire is great for construction management, site investigations, insurance claim investigations, and situations where multiple team members are inspecting a single property or building. Fieldwire is not really necessary for single professionals inspecting one deficiency. It is much more useful and applicable for larger scale, multiple task work.
  • We have been able to save our team so much time during the data organization and download phase, allowing more time for technical analysis.
  • We have saved our clients a lot of money by efficiently documenting deficiencies and seamlessly moving from one phase to the next without doubling work or losing data.
Fieldwire is the best of all worlds. It takes the best of each management software and implements that into one all-inclusive software for contractors and design professionals alike. Implementing Fieldwire into construction projects is very easy because the app and software are very easy to navigate and use. We are able to share daily photo reports with clients and contractors to ensure that progress and status are always monitored.
Fieldwire customer service is exceptional. They are always looking to grow, learn and take feedback from users to make their software the best it can be. They have taken feedback from us, worked with us on how to best implement and incorporate our ideas and work quickly with their software engineers to implement the feedback into the software. They are willing to make changes quickly and are not shy in asking your opinion. If there are ever issues with your subscription, software or data, they are very quick to make sure everything is taken care of to the best of their ability.
