WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — SKYSITE, an industry-leading software company for construction professionals and facilities managers, today announced new functionality for its ProjectLink application that includes a fully-integrated version designed for use on the Apple iPhone. Other upgrades include improved hyperlinking identification, an easier workflow for uploading documents, and a simpler, cleaner user interface for publishing pages.
“As smartphones have become larger, they are beginning to displace tablet use, especially in the field. That’s why we’ve focused on bringing the power and simplicity of SKYSITE ProjectLink to the phone; it’s a perfect marriage of form factor and UI,” said Rahul Roy, Chief Technology Officer for SKYSITE. “Anyone can carry an iPhone in their pocket, so bringing SKYSITE to this platform dramatically expands the number of people who can benefit from its use. Even a field worker with a full tool belt who is carrying supplies can stop and use a phone to consult a construction plan or building reference.”
SKYSITE ProjectLink was originally introduced in 2015 to manage and distribute the continually changing documents and information used in active construction projects. Through the use of its ability to synchronize data in real time between devices, as well as its mobile capabilities on the tablet — and now the smartphone — construction professionals can dramatically improve communication and collaboration using cloud and secure mobile access.
The application’s most recent release includes:
More mobility with the Apple iPhone – the same great capabilities users experienced on the iPad are now available on the iPhone. View documents, snap and pin pictures to drawings, create punch lists, answer RFIs and more.
Improved hyperlinking identification – any sheet references on vector-based PDFs are now identified, regardless of whether they appear in specified call-outs or not.
“Drag & Drop” uploading – simple, intuitive file migration from cloud to device and back again.
Redesigned sheet publishing interface – more screen real estate means more visible pages; various new file delete options, including the removal of duplicate sheets on the fly; easier access to indexing options; and better publishing notifications.
Easier adoption – sample projects to get you started faster; better distinctions between trial and paid accounts keep it simple as you gear up for your next project; get discounts for referrals to coworkers and associates.
Better integration — With a new application program interface (API), SKYSITE ProjectLink can fit into your existing information technology infrastructure and integrate with your other project applications.
