The Now Report By NoteVault:
Documenting the daily activities of a large construction project is one of the most tedious (but important) tasks of a Project Manager. But with NoteVault’s Now Report, the task becomes a verifiable breeze. With a secure and private database, NoteVault application users can access their dictated voice notes (transcribed), photos and related jobsite GPS coordinates captured and organized irrefutably. This real-time reporting eliminates the process of time-consuming written reports. After-the-fact inaccuracies are gone, removing any gaps in detail that could risk exposing companies to legal claims. This simple, user-friendly solution, combined with the Sonim phone, provides a cost-effective way of improving construction business processes.
Sonim’s Ultra-Rugged Workforce Management Mobile Phone:
Building on lessons learned from serving half a million workers in the world’s toughest jobs, Sonim’s phones meet a set of durability and usability metrics in extreme conditions that go well beyond military specifications called Rugged Performance Standards (RPS). Engineered for more than just conversation, Sonim handsets assure professional managers minimum downtime on the jobsite, keeping critical business processes running smoothly.
