Field Automated Communication Systems, LLC (FACS) today announced that The City of Fort Worth’s Transportation and Public Works Department has selected and will begin using FACS Solutions for a multi-million dollar streetscape improvement project starting November, 2010.
The City of Fort Worth Transportation and Public Works Department, driven by its strategic commitment to improve productivity and quality while also managing budget constraints, selected FACS Solutions to eliminate paper-based delays and to increase the collaboration of project teams both in the field and the home office.
“Our inspectors will use FACS (Solutions) to record quantities, material usage, markup documents, and also create and track correspondence,” says Andy Anderson, City of Fort Worth Assistant Transportation and Public Works Director. “With one comprehensive system keeping track of all work activities and materials we expect to save considerable time and money by minimizing mistakes and delays which can happen with paper-based methods.”
FACS is working with the City of Fort Worth’s Transportation and Public Works Department to roll out its highly collaborative system, FACS Project Controller™, to standardize and automate project management tasks. Additionally, Field Inspectors will be equipped with FACS Anywhere™ – ruggedized tablet PCs that feature an offline mode to allow inspectors to work uninterrupted even when no internet connection is available.
“The Web-based project management controls of the FACS Solution create efficiencies and savings by providing real-time project information to all project team members,” said Daryn Reif, CEO of Field Automated Communication Systems. “We’re excited to be working with the City of Fort Worth to implement the FACS Solution, and to help them achieve their goals.”
