Staying organized and tracking progress efficiently with Fieldwire
Last month, we invited two valued Fieldwire users to speak at our Summer Product Update Webinar. Pierce Junker, Quality Control Inspector at High Speed Rail Joint Venture, along with Michael Huff, Director of Project Management at Dean Snyder Construction shared their Fieldwire use cases with the audience.
While explaining their experiences working with the Fieldwire platform and team, it became clear that the software improved work efficiency by helping both field and office leaders stay organized.

Aside from data tracking, Pierce explains that Fieldwire’s customer support has helped them integrate the platform into their workflows and get it off the ground and moving. He also explains that Fieldwire’s ease of use meant little to no learning curve for his team, which saved everyone time and frustration.
Michael also chimed in with a similar story. He explains that prior to Fieldwire, his team’s workflow relied on both paper and digital which led to confusion.
“There were paper copy items that were filled out. Some of the other forms were being filled out electronically, but the saving of those files was a painful process. It led to errors, missing files, or people just not filling them out cause they were confused or frustrated.”
With Fieldwire, Michael explains that it has been simple and easy for the team, particularly when it comes to filling out Forms:
