The project team wanted a more efficient way to track and manage punch list items for a hotel it was building. It hadcetiwhweb been listing punch list items in notebooks and eventually re-entered the data into a spreadsheet that proved to be very time-consuming and redundant. In addition, the location of the punch items was not always evident to the subcontractors. The project team implemented an electronic punch-list system, significantly improving the overall punch process. Project team members could access the system from the field on a tablet PC, iPad or iPhone. The IT department provided a clear 4G spot router for field WiFi connectivity.

Zachry developed a new process that combined software with workflows developed for the construction industry, cloud computing via Dropbox and a combination of smart devices. The employees attributed the success of this system to the flexibility and seamless integration with the different components. The punch list files were synched between the users and their devices via Dropbox. As the documents were updated, the group would see a notification of the updated files. This allowed even home office employees to remain updated on the punch list progress. During its implementation, Bluebeam PDF Revu had a product update that added a free service, Bluebeam Studio, that allowed the firm to collaborate on the same punch list with all project stakeholders in real time.
