On November 1st, Fluid CM will be releasing the first ever Construction Management Platform built from the ground up for use on mobile devices. “Every step of the program was planned around a 100% responsive design” according to Don Speedie the company founder. Existing web based systems stem from designs that work for the desktop and have then modified those systems for use in mobile situations.
“We designed the user interface to fit onto a smartphone sized screen and then allowed it to scale up as necessary depending on the device you are using. This means that you can access the system through your web browser on any web enabled device”. See the details here. An iphone and ipad app is also being released.
From there, the project management process was broken down into small, bite sized chunks that allows users to submit RFIs, Submittals, contracts, changes (and more) all digitally”. The system allows you to digitally sign off on all documents and share documents no matter when you are, basically eliminating paperwork on the job site.
