Building upon its
successful biding software, BID2WIN will release a new logistics management
module next month for its BUILD2WIN solution. The aim is to provide contractors
with a single solution in which to bid, track and allocate resources for
construction jobs. The logistics module is integrated directly into the
company’s web-based platform, which is available anywhere with a wired or
wireless internet connection, helping to streamline work in the field.
BUILD2WIN is built on
Microsoft’s .NET and SQL server platforms. It allows for real-time data
tracking of job information and mobile field tracking if no internet
connectivity is available. Data is automatically synchronized with the web
server as soon as the laptop or mobile device is connected. BUILD2WIN is also
GPS-vendor agnostic, working with any number of geo-location solutions in the
“BUILD2WIN allows you
to figure out how much time is being spent on each task and at each site and
how much work is left to be completed,” said BID2WIN vice president Dave
Todaro. “The system makes you aware of what is going on and gives you the tools
to deal with problems that come up immediately—rather than weeks later.”
The new logistics
module streamlines scheduling employees for specific jobs and resource
allocation. Data can be used with mapping software to give foremen a geographic
view of job sites.
Another module aimed
at helping management of equipment maintenance is currently in development.
