What is a punch list app?
Punch list app is a mobile application that is used to create, manage and correct defects that you find on your site. The app is a direct replacement for your paper process. This app can be used on either your smartphone or tablet.
Why should you choose a punch list app?
Simply put it, you will be able to work better and more efficiently. Almost every field worker today has a smartphone in their pockets which are not in use majority of the time. Your smartphone can be used to make and correct defects with the use of an app such as BatiScript.
While you are on site when you find a defect you can just pop out your smartphone, create defects, make a note, take a picture and assign the defect to a company. The person that the defect is assigned to will see that task when he open BatiScript on his smartphone or tablet.
