These software tools provide a comprehensive solution for documenting field work and retrieving that information in the back-office. This hyper-secure suite of software was created by contractors, for contractors, and includes:
- Ticket Management System (integrated management of one-call tickets)
- Mobile documentation and one-call ticket app
- Robust back-office retrieval
Products that are packaged with your GSS-participation include:
One-Call TMS is software that simplifies the cumbersome task of tracking one-call tickets, including expirations and renewals. GSS recognizes that managing tickets can be a complex burden and the stakes of doing it right have never been higher. Margins get squeezed or evaporate altogether when downtime and idle time result from a misstep in the one-call ticket process. HCS software organizes one-call tickets, which minimizes the opportunity for downtime or idle time and slashes the cost to babysit the complex process. Simply add an email address to one-call notifications that are sent to the one-call center, and the software will organize the tickets electronically for shared access. No more spreadsheets, bulletin boards or lengthy cascading emails.
Construction Yearbook, a software application that is a comprehensive construction documentation control program for documenting job sites, installations, events, and inspections. This simple-to-use suite is a powerful field documentation tool, coupled together with the finest technology for retrieving the information in the back-office.
HCS mobile app, a software application that answers multiple field documentation needs. HCS app makes it incredibly easy for field staff to preserve and record the job conditions as they go. The result: a complete and transparent record of a job, enabling users to meet any subsequent questions with complete and unquestionable data. The app manages pre-site pictures, installation documentation, locate marks, one-call tickets, downtime, pot-holes, site preservation photos and video. Everything can be tagged (labeled) in the field with attributes, and most items are automatically tagged with no user interaction. The app works on all devices, with or without an Internet connection, and is available in multiple languages.
