About Project Controller – FACS
Field Automated Communication Systems, LLC (FACS) developed Project Controller, a cloud-based project management system, for professionals in architecture, engineering, and construction. FACS utilizes its expertise in the latest advances in wireless and tablet technologies to provide solutions that are user-friendly and easily accessible. Additionally, the people at FACS have a “client for life” philosophy that drives their desire to work side-by-side with customers from the beginning to the end of all projects.
The Project Controller software includes mobile field reporting that allows team members to record inspection results and work progress while in the field or on site. With this mobile access, team members can also reduce costly mistakes in the filed with constant access to updated drawings, specifications, charts, and communications that were previously only available in the construction office. Users can choose from 40 built-in report templates to produce detailed works reports and forms instantly, which can be shared with other team members instantly. If you don’t see the template you want, FACS can customize the formats for your project’s specific reporting requirements. Project Controller’s automated contract administration module works to ensure that all actions are compliant with detailed client/agency specifications. The schedule control module allows users to view project process and resource utilization in real-time, with custom dashboards that deliver updated work progress visibility. Additionally, with document control your team can have access to any other applicable files and documents.
The New York State Department of Transportation (NYDOT) used FACS Project Controller while rebuilding Route 9A, one of the main access points to the World Trade Center. Project Controller allowed them to streamline daily work report creation, accurately manage cost control, and improve team visibility to project details. NYDOT has been working with FACS since this project.
