PAYSON, UT--(Marketwire - February 28, 2013) - Despite the fact cavemen haven't been around for thousands of years, the Stone Age has still been alive and well in construction, until recently. One Utah Company is helping contractors fix what has been broken forever.
Some of the largest construction companies around the globe are still using a stick (pencil) and tablet (paper -- not an iPad or Android Tablet) to track their large, complex projects. Ten years ago, AboutTime Technologies set out to stop the archaic madness that is so prevalent in the construction trades. The founders of AboutTime knew that if companies always did what they had always done, they would continue to get what they had always got. Fast forward to 2013. After years of forward-thinking mobile innovation, AboutTime Technologies has won its third Most Innovative Product Award in the last four years at the nation's largest annual trade show -- The World of Concrete. AboutTime is on a mission to change the game.
AboutTime Technologies, the market leader of real-time, remote data collection software, today announced it has once again been honoured as the Top Vote Recipient in the Business Tools and Software Category. Mike Merrill, AboutTime COO, said, "It is an incredible honor to be recognized with this award by the Concrete and Construction Industries for the third time in the last four years. As a former contractor myself, I understand what these companies are up against. With tight margins, fierce competition and a challenging market, companies in the construction verticals need our help. That's what we are doing here at AboutTime -- helping. Our mobile solutions help AboutTime customers solve real business problems and also have an immediate positive impact on their bottom line."
AboutTime's winning entry, FormsXPress, allows contractors to skip the clipboard and completely do away with their paper and spreadsheets by capturing any existing field forms used for their jobs and projects digitally, in real-time, on mobile devices. FormsXPress also allows contractors to capture rich data such as voice notes, photos, videos, and on screen digital signatures within these forms. AboutTime provides decision makers a real-time daily view of project costs, earned value, and true field production.
The old days of using pencil, paper and digital spreadsheets in the field are fading fast. The mobile revolution is rapidly changing the way contractors exchange information between the field and office. Don't get left behind.
