Sage Construction Anywhere - 2.3 Release Now Available

Sage Construction Anywhere just became even more robust with the newest capabilities added to the recent 2.3 release.  In addition to performance and usability enhancements, supervisors now have a more efficient way to collect and track time through a brand-new Cost Code view within the Time service.  Project Files have also been added to the Sage Construction mobile app giving field personnel greater flexibility in accessing vital project documents on iOS, and soon Android, mobile devices.  The efficiency of employees communicating from the field increases with these new features:

Cost Code View—An Efficient New Way to Record and Track Time
The new Cost Code view within the Time service provides supervisors and time approvers several new capabilities. They can enter, review, approve, and modify submitted time for a group of employees on a single screen, without the need to switch between multiple windows. The Cost Code view expedites the time collection and approval process, freeing staff from administrative tasks and allowing them to focus on other high-priority items. Furthermore, time worked can now be filtered for viewing by specific cost codes to alert supervisors to the potential for labor overages on the job.

Sage Construction Mobile App Now Includes Project Files
The addition of Project Files to the Sage Construction mobile app makes it quick and easy for field personnel to upload and access vital project documents directly from their iOS, and soon Android, devices while at the job site. For example, a field employee can take a picture of the job site with their iPhone and immediately upload it using the intuitive Sage Construction app, giving the team at the office instant access to the latest project updates. Conversely, this on-the-spot access at the job site provides foremen and superintendents the details they need from the office to ensure the work is done correctly, the first time. To further streamline field-to-office communication, the Sage Construction app has also been enhanced with additional functionality to make dialing, emailing, or texting project contacts easy—right from the app.”
