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.
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.

Fieldwire is always on hand to answer questions. It also constantly releases new features based on feedback.
Fieldwire is being used by all of our project managers, superintendents, and foreman. FW solves various problems such as plan management, ease of use (not having to walk around with huge sets of plans), plan updating and ensuring everyone has the latest set of plans and overall project documentation (reports, pictures, etc.). It helps keep everyone on the same page.
Fieldwire is best suited for companies with several users and projects being completed concurrently. For example, we roughly have 15-25 projects consistently and the ease of sending plan updates to all users at once makes it easy to manage several people. Also, we save a lot of money doing digital plans versus the old way of printing each page/set for our employees. Fieldwire would be less suited for a small company or someone who doesn't need a lot of plan printing for projects.

As we have reached out to support regarding several issues with Fieldwire over the years, it can be a hit or miss depending on the issue. Most issues are solved right away and with an easy fix - it's usually something we overlooked or didn't know about. I wouldn't hesitate to contact the FW support if or when I have issues.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
