Mobile solutions are creating a paradigm shift for construction companies—connecting field to operations with many benefits, including efficiency, cost containment, and reporting. The landscaping field is no different.

Christy Webber, www.christywebber.com, Chicago, Ill., has implemented FieldConnect’s, www.fieldconnect.com, Irvine, Calif., FieldAccess, FieldGateway, and Field Time as a solution for its team of technicians.

FieldAccess software allows for integration with Christy Webber’s present Vista by Viewpoint ERP (enterprise-resource planning), www.viewpoint.com, Portland, Ore. It also serves as a remote access point where one can view job qualifications, images, diagrams, and landscaping site history. Due to the instant access to information, calls can be immediately directed to landscaping professionals. This quick service eliminates data errors and makes it easy to keep organizing schedules simple for everyone.

The results are significant. Calls can be created in the Vista environment and routed immediately to the landscape professional, providing accelerated service, eliminating manual data entry errors, and allowing Christy Webber Landscapes to issue invoices the same day as landscaping services are performed. In addition FieldGateway simplifies scheduling by organizing landscaping work orders.

The stability and ability to organize the work order made scheduling easier, according to Josh Teele, IT Manager for Christy Webber Landscapes, and kept customers in mind and adapted to the company’s custom needs.

FieldConnect provides a comprehensive suite of mobile solutions that boost efficiency in a client’s field services, billing, and payroll departments by extending the functionality of Vista by Viewpoint, Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP, and SL, as well as Sage Timberline ERP systems.

The mobile solutions have helped Christy Webber’s team become more efficient in the technical realm. Integration of mobile devices is on the rise for many types of companies, which bodes well for the future of technological advancements in construction.
