Portsmouth, NH, March 23, 2012 – Clients who attended BID2WIN Software’s annual User Conference last month were the first to witness an exclusive demonstration of the company’s latest endeavor, tablet applications that will allow BUILD2WIN Field and BUILD2WIN Maintenance to be used on the iPad and Android tablet devices, in both connected and disconnected mode.
Plans for BUILD2WIN’s tablet applications were announced for the first time during the UC2012 Keynote Address, where Vice President Dave Todaro surprised attendees with a working prototype of the BUILD2WIN Field application on his iPad.
“BUILD2WIN Field’s iPad and Android tablet app will provide an unprecedented level of ease of use and access for field personnel to keep the office up-to-date with production and time sheet information,” explains Todaro. “With their instant-on capability, all-day battery, amazing ease of use, and ruggedized cases, iPads and Android tablets are a perfect fit for the field.”
Attendees were extremely excited to see the prototype, and expressed their anticipation to start using the application in the field.
“I loved it!” said Aaron Dotson, estimator at Precision Paving in Milan, Ohio and conference attendee. “The iPad application visually works for me better than anything I have ever seen or used before. I can’t wait for my company to begin using BUILD2WIN and this application.”
Jesse Pero, project manager at Michigan-based Hoffman Bros., Inc. expressed a similar sentiment. “We were thrilled to find out that BID2WIN Software is well on their way to utilizing the tablet.”
Clients who use BUILD2WIN Maintenance, which is scheduled for release later this year, can use the Maintenance tablet app to ensure effective communication between shops, mechanics and equipment managers.
“BUILD2WIN Maintenance’s tablet app will have an informative and easy to use interface that makes full use of the tablet’s touch screen, allowing users to create work orders and enter time sheets,” explains Maintenance product manager Tim Santos. “Mechanics will be presented with an application that is not just a new way of capturing information, but also provides true assistance as they complete their day to day work.”
The BUILD2WIN Field and BUILD2WIN Maintenance tablet applications will be available in the fourth quarter of 2012. For more information, contact the BID2WIN Software sales team at (800) 336-3808 or [email protected].
