HCSS Plans Links Office to Field with Project Information

Featuring web and mobile applications, the new HCSS Plans digital plan management solution connects the office to the field to avoid costly mistakes and rework. It allows superintendents and project managers to efficiently manage changes and markups to project drawings and plans, ensuring those in the field are working with the latest information.

From the office, the digital plan management program allows managers and estimators to upload project documentation and make annotations, link to callouts, add notes and photos, and mark revisions and versions using the HCSS Plans website. The program’s Quick Publish feature offers fast, one-step PDF document uploading to create seamless communication with the field. HCSS Plans features dual scaling – vertical and horizontal –plus a host of calculators for job-site items ranging from asphalt, concrete and concrete yield to rebar, trenching and trucking.

HCSS Plans gives field crews instant access to any document revisions or new versions. Optimized for iOS mobile devices, drawings stay crisp and fluid as workers pan and zoom plan sheets. Crew leaders can annotate plans from mobile devices to show changes in the field and communicate back to the office. Plans can be downloaded to the device and viewed offline, and HCSS Plans automatically syncs with the device when it returns online, ensuring the latest documents are being accessed.

“HCSS focuses solely on the heavy civil construction market, and our software programs are developed specifically for contractors, so the information gathered allows crews to work together safer, smarter and more efficiently,” said Rateb Almarsi, product manager at HCSS. “Our new HCSS Plans digital management program gives contractors the information they need to give them an edge over the competition. Plus, it will integrate with other HCSS products, improving estimating accuracy, reporting and operating safety. ”

The new software is backed by HCSS’s world-class customer service, which offers 24/7 instant support, 365 days a year.
