Now Independent Contractors Can Connect with Existing Clients, Stay Engaged with Every Project and Find New Business Opportunities On The Go
MINNEAPOLIS – Feb. 2, 2015 – Field Nation, a leading work platform connecting organizations with independent contractors to get work done, today launched its new mobile app for Android-based systems. The new Field Nation app supports on-the-job activity so service providers can access existing work orders and respond to new requests from anywhere at any time.
“The new Field Nation app is faster and easier to navigate, from work order acceptance to completion and payment,” said Travis Emslander, Chief Technology Officer at Field Nation. “Now service providers can perform work order tasks in the field as they are completed and respond to new work opportunities in a timely way. Plus, organizations gain real-time visibility and faster response rates to existing and new work orders. It’s a win/win for providers and businesses using the Field Nation platform.”
“I’m thoroughly excited to finally have a Field Nation mobile app – it makes it much easier to read work orders and project documentation, as well as organize the requirements for close out,” said a Reno, Nev.-based Field Nation service provider. “It saves me the hassle of having multiple tabs open from using a web link to access the site on my phone. The mobile app design is very pleasing to the eye, and I look forward to using it immediately for my day-to-day work. With the continuous improvements [Field Nation] has planned, I expect that it will only become more useful for both us as providers, as well as the buyers.”
Features of the Field Nation app for Android systems include:
- New rapid-access user-interface design delivers immediate access to assignments and tasks
- Signature capture and document upload capabilities right from a mobile device
- Search the marketplace and respond to new work opportunities from anywhere in the field
- Access to important job information including date, location, hourly rate agreements and more
- Ability to negotiate counteroffers on new work order bids
- Detailed, real-time work order tracking
- Access to complete payment history and work order status
The new Android app brings the full power of the web site to mobile users in a native mobile application. Service providers get immediate access to new business opportunities and can process work orders through to completion in the field. Businesses achieve real-time visibility and immediate communication with on-site technicians, which drive better results with faster completion times.
The new Field Nation mobile app is available for download at the Google Play Store. The app for iOS device users will launch later this spring.
