[San Francisco, CA, April 30, 2020] Fieldwire’s PDF viewing and editing tools provide construction teams the ability to mark up PDFs directly in the Fieldwire app, helping them get more done from the field by doing it all from their mobile devices. In conjunction with Fieldwire’s plan viewing tools, project managers and team members have real-time access to the latest plans and information as well as the ability to add notes and markups on-the-fly.

In the past, speciality contractors’ on-site teams have had to use ad hoc methods to update and mark up PDF files like spec sheets and other documents — taking notes in one app or, worse, with pen and paper, and then transferring to the original PDFs back at the office. These extra steps increased the potential for missed details and costly rework.

“Making markups on our plans is a chief use we have for Fieldwire. My crew adds markups to plans as they complete their tasks to highlight anything noteworthy. They can add them in the app on the same day, or the following day, so that we can see everything that’s been installed very clearly on the sheets.”

Roger Poulin, Regional Manager, Eagle Excavation

PDF markup tools are especially helpful for specialty contractors who are coordinating work with customers and GCs.

In addition to markups, users can now search PDFs for key terms on specifications, highlight essential phrases, and cloud important changes to communicate them to teams — all from a tablet or phone.
