CATCheckpoint – Main Contractors

CATCheckpoint is an inspection and remedial management system for construction projects that utilises the Web and Android Mobile Phones. CATCheckpoint is practical and affordable for any size of project and any size of company. Whether it is a pre pour check, a pre lining check or a formal handover inspection CAT Checkpoint has got you covered and provides full audit trail.

Project set up is simple and the hard work of list compilation has been done for all of the typical items as sadly it does not change that much from job to job. This feature allows an inspection to have little or no manual entry and photos are added instantly for extra clarification. Invite consultants to the project to carry out inspections to avoid the double handling of lists. When finished assign the defects to your subcontractors, your relationship with your subcontractors is protected, the consultants cant view what goes on between the main contractor and its subcontractors.

about Inspections

A new inspection is created by entering the inspection name and the date you require all remedial work to be completed by. At the top of each screen there is a filter panel showing the inspection type, location and area. This information holds until you change it, allowing you to quickly enter multiple defects for an area without having to re-enter the same information.

Each defect has three compulsory fields which are element (wall, ceiling, floor etc), position and description. Select a defect item from the comprehensive list for that element. We have set up your Build Sets with all the typical remedial items so you are able to get through an inspection with little or no typing. Add a photo where clarification is required, photos are instantly part of the record if using the Android Phone App. No need to save, rename and upload. There is also a note field if you need to add additional information.

Notify Subcontractors

Once you have completed an inspection notify the subcontractor, this tells them how many defects you have identified and when you require remedial works to be completed. Now sit back and relax and monitor the subcontractors progress from the comfort of your desk. Once they send confirmation that they are complete a re-inspection can be organised. You can track any additional inspections and on charge if appropriate. Other functions include:-

  • adding a note or requesting clarification
  • updating the remedial status on the fly from your phone
  • notifying the subcontractor when all defects have been re-inspected
  • view the subcontractors performance statistics including turnaround time (a powerful tool for future work discussions)

Re-Inspect & Update Status

Update the status as you reinspect on the fly from your phone. The subcontractors can upload a photo of the completed remedial work to save you going back for a look, handy.

Communication between the Parties

Create a notification to the consultants or the subcontractors whether its one to one or one to many.  Each recipient can reply to a communication that they are included in and privacy is maintained with your recipients as they can only see conversations that are relevant. This is a great feature and keeps all communication relating to Remedial Management in the same place and appropriately confidential (or not).
