Sure, HeavyBid was our flagship product in 1986, but HCSS now offers something for almost every aspect of your business. If you’ve been a customer since our start in 1986, you may not realize the products we now offer to help communicate with your entire company.
With such a big product line, sometimes it can be overwhelming to understand where they all fit in. We have a new interactive graphic on our Website that allows you to visually see all of our products and where they fit into your organization.
Whether you are using only one HCSS product or are using multiple, we invite you to visit www.hcss.com and explore the graphic.
A significant item to note is that the equivalent of HeavyJob has been broken down into two pie slices, Field Management and Project Management & Job Costing. In the past HeavyJob was more of a field entry and reporting system. However, the scope has increased and we think it is more clear to differentiate the field activity from the office/management activity.
Field now consists of entering time cards, quantities, diaries, photos, checking skills/certifications, safety processes (meetings, inspections, near misses, incidents, observations, and JHAs), forms, marking up and measuring digital plans, having access to corporate and job documents, equipment inspections, and now even individual employee input and verification of their time, breaks, injury status, safety meeting attendance, etc.
Project Management & Job Costing consists of more tools for project management such as getting safety reporting, looking at as-built plans, reviewing production and planning/setting production goals with the field, submittals, RFIs, and an improved system for cataloging and tracking change orders. We will continue to build tools for project managers. One item we are considering is integrating with MS Project and P6 as we have done in HeavyBid.
