About IntelliSpeX

What is IntelliSpeX?

IntelliSpeX is a jobsite execution tool that captures lost profit from construction site labor issues, work delays, and project economics. It closes the gap between what you think is happening at the jobsite and what's actually happening with Virtual Presence℠ that puts you on-site from anywhere at any time for more effective management of remote personnel. It dramatically reduces change orders and cost overruns through indisputable Evidence of Performance℠ that shows proof the work was done with time-stamped, geo-tagged documentation. It speeds up billing, requests for information, building inspections, authorizations, and problem-solving with smart teamwork that connects everyone on the team and streamlines workflow with existing smartphone technology that is easy to use.

 

What is "Virtual Presence℠?"

Virtual Presence℠ is our patent-pending technology that allows you to see where your personnel are on site, when they arrived, how long they stay on site, and when they leave. You can be virtually on-site from anywhere without the windshield time.

 

What is "Evidence of Performance℠?"

Evidence of Performance℠ is irrefutable documentation of what all personnel are doing on each worksite through a social media-like record of inspection reports, forms, pictures, comments, attachments, and videos. Dates, times, and location stamps are provided in context with your workflows to ensure everything is organized so that it’s easy to find and easy to use.

For instance, if you have building inspections, each and every image or video taken will have the date, time, and geo-location automatically added. Changes are marked according to who made them and when they did it. If a post is deleted, you’ll know who did it. If a description, title, or form is edited, you’ll know who did it, what changes they made as well as the date and time it occurred.

How does IntelliSpeX help to solve problems more quickly?

IntelliSpeX provides the contractor, engineer, supervisor, and owner the abiltiy to see the work as it progresses. The information provided is organized into a storyboard format that shows the order in which things are happening. Changes can be seen from anywhere, 24/7. With the ability to quickly check into the project from anywhere, issues can be flagged and addressed earlier rather than later. If input is needed, it can be provided immediately. Engineers and supervisors don't need to wait for the work on-site to get back to the office.

How does IntelliSpeX reduce the time between work completion and payment?

Let's use the example of a change order. IntelliSpeX takes the traditional linear process and moves it in parallel, reducing the time between steps. The contractor, owner or owner representative, estimator, engineer, inspector, etc. can all see images and video of the problem. The engineer can instantly suggest solutions as needed. The estimator can get started immediately. The owner has transparency through the entire process. Forms can be added for authorization quickly. The result? A process that historically took anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks can be done almost immediately. A PDF of completed work can quickly be sent to billing with before and after images showing the completion of work. Since the representative had transparency through the process, payment is processed faster.

Will the time to implement change orders be reduced using your tool?

Technical Questions

How does IntelliSpeX store data?

IntelliSpeX uses a one-of-a-kind, proprietary data architecture with unique data structures specifically optimized to enhance job site execution and quality.

Where does IntelliSpeX store data?

All data is stored in the AWS secure cloud. IntelliSpeX does not store Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), or Classified information.

Does IntelliSpeX track users?

IntelliSpeX does not track users. We provide administrators with the ability to know when laborers are at their respective jobsites, and where they are on site.

Can IntelliSpeX be used when there is no WiFi or cellular connectivity ?

Yes! Our Offline mode allows users to continue work when there is no connectivity. Work done in off-line mode syncs once connectivity is available.

If I lose internet connectivity will locations services work?

Yes. Location services do not require a cell signal or wifi to operate.

Will information gathered in Offline mode still contain the date, time and location?

Yes. Offline mode collects the date, time and location from the phone or mobile device.

What kinds of reports does IntelliSpeX produce?

IntelliSpeX allows users and administrators to export pdf reports detailing what occurred at a jobsite (including where and when it happened, who was involved and even why, through comments). Some examples: safety inspection reports, building inspections reports, job-site progress updates, change orders, lean construction task reports, and many more. The possibliites are unlimited.

IntelliSpeX also has the ability to produce an Excel sheet that provides every metadata marker. This information can be sorted and manipulated using pivot tables. Images and videos are provided as URLs.

Labor Management reports may be compiled indicating the dates and times that employees were on site.

Can I send a report on my mobile device?

Yes, we have a report that exports to PDF. This is particularly handy to send pictures and videos with descriptions and comment threads to someone who does not have the IntelliSpeX tool. Videos are linked in the PDF and will play with internet connectivity. You can choose which images or videos to provide and whether or not to include the comment thread.

Could a GIS layer be created from IntelliSpeX output?

Yes, it can. IntelliSpeX has two levels of accuracy for location tagging of individual posts. If you need extremely accurate locations for all posts, you can choose the Advanced setting. All locations are saved in coordinates and address format. Using the coordinates format you can import the information to any QGIS system.

How do I see which of my employees and contractors are on a particular site?

The IntelliSpeX Work Force Viewer provides a map view of users on a worksite. You can click on individuals to gather their phone number or email address. If necessary, you can run a report of all individuals on-site. This report will indicate the date and total time on site along with entry and exit times.

Does Virtual Presence℠ mean that I will be able to watch live video of my team in action?

No. Virtual Presence℠ gives you the ability to see if and when your team members are on-site through our mapping software, so you know who's there without having to be there yourself. It closes the gap between what you think is happening at the work site and what is actually happening. As your team adds images and videos, you'll see what they have accomplished and you can comment on ongoing work. Engineers, supervisors, owners, owner representatives and contractors may all be tagged as needed to suggest solutions as problems appear.

Is there a way to show before and after images of completed work together?

Yes, there is. Initially all images may be taken as proof of the initial site condition. Then after repairs have been made the after images can be inserted beside the before/initial images.
