HCSS Plans has been solving rework issues for contractors across the nation with its revision control and instant collaboration. Following its April release, HCSS Plans is taking on issue logs for change orders and extra work in collaboration with HeavyJob Project Management.
With the ability to create an issue directly from a plan sheet within HCSS Plans, users can easily select an annotation, attach photos, and notify project managers of the new issue in HeavyJob Project Management. This capability is critical in the construction industry, where every issue that arises can lead to change orders or extra work, increasing the slim margins that contractors already work on.
Integrating HCSS Plans with HeavyJob
The integration between these two HCSS products provides users with a comprehensive and streamlined project management experience. Creating and tracking issues for multiple foremen on a project can be a daunting task. HeavyJob Project Management allows for issue creation from HCSS Field already, but the importance of adding the plan sheet to the equation cannot be understated.
The ability to pin an issue to a plan sheet allows for quick and easy reference, reducing the time it takes to resolve issues and increasing overall productivity. Additionally, a direct link between the issue and the drawing is created, ensuring that every issue that originates in the field is connected to the appropriate drawing.
Improved Data Flow and Error Reduction
The integration of Plans and HeavyJob also improves the flow of data and reduces data entry errors. The ability to receive notifications on the created issues in HeavyJob Project Management allows project managers to know what is important for the day.
The issue can be elevated to an RFI if needed, and all changes are logged in the history for the RFI. The plan sheet and markups can be exported and attached directly to the RFI, allowing for a quick transfer of information into the client’s hands.
This integration allows teams to work and collaborate more efficiently, ensuring that projects are delivered on time and within budget.
To use this new feature, select the annotation on the plan sheet, attach any necessary photos, and click the Create Issue button.
The issue will then appear in the HeavyJob Project Management issue log, where team members can track progress and assign tasks.
