CONTRACTORS AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGERS need to be assured their work is properly documented.

ARCHITECTS AND ENGINEERS need to be assured their projects are built per their design intent.

TESTING AND SPECIAL INSPECTION FIRMS need to be assured they are properly documenting the activities per the building code.

MATERIAL SUPPLIERS need to be assured their materials are properly handled, properly stored, and properly installed.

OWNERS need to be assured they are getting what they have paid for.

iReport360 is the solution to allow all team members to “Build With Confidence”

Additional benefits and features of iReport360 are described below.

  • Provides real-time quality assurance to the project that the materials have been verified and approved for use.
  • Immediate notifications of any material deficiencies will allow the material suppliers to provide a timely response.
  • Provides real-time application response to the supplier that the product is being used properly and the specifications. Currently, unless a supplier representative visits each project site, there is no assurance that the material is being installed correctly or per its intended use.
  • Access to real-time, detailed inspection reports provides the following assurances to the supplier for their product: 1) Lowers liability; 2) Documentation on the product’s actual use versus its designed intent; and 3) Measures success of the product from design though production, installation, and final acceptance.
  • Asphalt producers can reduce production costs by using the field test results to refine their product design.
  • Provides historical data on mix performance in different conditions helping you select the correct mix for ultimate job performance.
  • iReport360 can be used from any device capable of accessing the internet, such as a laptop computer, smart phone, or other mobile device. Therefore, purchase of a specific hardware is not required.
  • Affordable, user-based price structure makes iReport360 feasible for both large and small companies.

Real-time communication of field testing results is a major improvement for the construction industry. In the case of asphalt paving, confidence will be gained by the entire project team by knowing that material densities and temperature requirements are met or exceeded. In the event that laboratory testing indicates low compaction or out-of-spec materials, the entire project team will be notified of the test results via email alerts and appropriate actions can be taken. Proper communication can prevent costly re-work and assist construction managers or contractors to phase their work with assurance that in-place materials meet design specifications.
