Traditionally, inspection professionals, architects and owners have juggled multiple copies of floor plans, clipboards, inspection forms and supplies, while working their way through their projects. All this under tight deadlines and pressure from all sides to get the project over the finish line
Once the inspection was complete, the tedious work began. Compiling and delivering the information from the variety of lists and hand marked up plan diagrams to the various sub-contractors and job foreman. Tracking the progress of each item required any number of duplicate steps and endless copying
and distributing of materials.
Finally, coordinating the various punch lists between the contractor, the architect and owners, meant hours and hours of meetings. Often meeting on multiple occasions, sometimes ending in miscommunication and unnecessary tensions between the parties.
Along came early punch list software on computers and PDAs but still they didn't provide a complete solution and only solved one tiny portion of the problem.
