From 4Projects: 4Mobile

4projects logoSunderland, UK-based SaaS construction collaboration technology vendor 4Projects, has announced the release of its first app, 4Mobile.

The app is free to download for current 4Projects customers on an Apple iPad or iPhone (an Android app will be released later this year). Mobile project team members will then be able to access and share 4Projects information from their iOS device, and to view RFIs, issues and change orders, create new tasks and respond to discussions, view contact details and upload photos.

4Projects product manager Miles Haladay says:

“This new product underscores our continued commitment to deliver new capabilities and value that help customers realize greater success with their projects. We designed the application to be easy to use – a natural extension of the well-known 4Projects environment – allowing users to quickly respond to an RFI, change order and issue, or begin a discussion and review – wherever their work day takes them.”

Mobile is becoming a key battleground for the SaaS vendors. Rival Aconex launched its iPhone app in May 2011, and added an iPad version in September 2012. Other vendors have opted not to do apps, but focus on providing mobile web access; Cadweb, for example, opted for a web only tool, released in February.

Bentley mobile apps too

Update (12 July 2013): And hot on the heels of the 4Projects announcement (which I now understand I got a little early) comes one from Bentley Systems telling me about:

  • Field Supervisor, a Bentley App for the iPad that extends the reach of information securely managed by its collaboration platform ProjectWise and eB, as well as data stored in other user repositories, to construction workers in the field – providing online and offline access;
  • Bentley Map Mobile, a Bentley App that empowers infrastructure professionals to share Bentley Map Geospatial Information with field technicians via Android-based mobile devices.
