The FieldManager software is an award-winning, comprehensive electronic construction management system for managing and tracking construction projects, documenting progress, initiating contractor payments and communicating with an agency’s central office contract administration system.

FieldManager software is a Microsoft® Certified solution designed for use by state transportation agencies, local governments, engineering consultants and large contractors.

As the main component, the FieldManager software holds and maintains data for all aspects of your contracts. Create pay estimates, change orders, Inspectors' Daily Reports, and accurately track material usage with ease, while utilizing the data for bid item management. It integrates with existing financial systems for contractor payments and long-range planning systems.

Companion products:

FieldManager Read-Only software allows anyone involved in the construction cycle, from executives to contractors, access to project data for reference and review.

FieldManager Contractor software includes all of the functionality of the FieldManager Read-only application, and adds the ability to create discrepancy reports, establish subcontracts and calculate subcontractor payment reports, import Expedite Bid (.ebs) files, and compute the contractor's daily profit.

FieldBook software is the inspector’s component for field data collection. It operates on a laptop in the field, in a truck, or in the remote project office.

The FieldBuilder data entry interface allows agencies to initialize contract data and therefore use FieldManager software in a stand-alone environment.

The FieldNet system is the communications link between FieldManager and FieldBook software, or between FieldManager software and other contractor payment software.

Eight state agencies and hundreds of local governments, consultants and contractors are currently using the FieldManager application as their construction management system.
