Common questions and answers about
Dayone Solutions Software

Unlike most punch list management systems on the market, FinishLine Software is NOT a PDF markup program. Rather, items are in real locations “above” a plan drawing in what we call “Defined Spaces”. This allows for powerful filtering and sorting of data for inspecting and reporting. FinishLine Software is intuitive with powerful documentation and reporting capabilities that save significant time (see Case Studies). Using FinishLine Software “punch on the plan technology” results in a 30-40% reduction in time to inspect and coordination between parties is cut by 75%. No more struggling with handwritten lists and spreadsheets. Reports are produced and distributed within minutes via email. 

Because FinishLine Software is powerful, easy to use and requires minimal training, project stakeholders choose FinishLine Software over other punch list programs.

Unlimited data, unlimited support and inspection types. Our team will set up your first FinishLine project and perform free online user training. 

For inspections, some customers report reaching a 100% ROI before they are halfway through the inspection process on their first project. Most projects have hundreds if not thousands of deficiencies to address, a process which is significantly improved by FinishLine Software. 

FinishLine Software saves time and money in several ways: 

  • Reduces time to inspect. 
  • Supports paperless workflow. 
  • Collating and communicating open status punch list reports to individual subcontractors done with the click of a button 
  • Users have access to nearly real-time inspection statuses. 

If you wish to set-up the platform on your own, you can begin immediately after payment/provisioning.   

If our Team of Experts will set it up for you: 

Once we receive plans and lists as outlined in the FinishLine Project set-up document, most of our clients are up and running in less than 6-10 days depending on the size of the project and our backlog.  

Most software providers leave it to you to set up their software for your projects. This self-setup can lead to frustration, delayed and incomplete setups. FinishLine Software services assure that from day one you have a top-notch and a “project ready” turnkey system.

User training for the FinishLine Software typically takes about 15- 20 minutes with some additional time for questions. Basic reports training takes about 15 minutes. For the first training we will usually book an hour to cover the software, reporting and questions. We can also provide Admin training for the assigned administrator(s) to learn basic back-end functions, as needed. All training is conducted online by the FinishLine Software Support Team unless otherwise requested 

No. FinishLine Software app operates in two modes. On-Line and Stand Alone. In the On-Line mode there are no requirements other than those stated above. In Stand-Alone mode, the FinishLine Software for iPad/iPhone, Android tablets/Android smartphone devices or Tablet PC is installed locally on your device. Before field work you connect to the Internet and synchronize. After inspection you return to a location with Internet access and synchronize again. This process takes from 10 seconds to 3 minutes depending on the amount of inspections between synchronization. We highly recommend synchronizing as often as possible as other parties may have added or edited information in the field or at the office and it is important to keep everyone on the same page. 

FinishLine Software works on iOS and Android tablets and smartphones. You can also access FinishLine Desktop Software via a PC or Laptop when you’re back in the office or job trailer. 

We always encourage investing in the latest and greatest technology. Because technology ages, starting with an older device means it will be slower than the newest and become obsolete sooner, decreasing the value of your investment. We find that iPad Air, iPad Mini, and iPad Pro are all very capable tablet devices with FinishLine Software. 

Depending on how many photos you expect to include with punch list items, 32GB should be enough memory however, we recommend 64GB or higher since you will probably be running other mobile apps on the same device. If you are on multiple projects with FinishLine Software, we recommend devices with at least 64GB. NOTE: Keep in mind that memory depends on what other apps you use on each device. Whatever device you choose, it should be compatible with the latest iOS, Android or Windows operating systems. 

For smartphones, the FinishLine Software runs on iPhone 5 or later and Android 4 or later. A PC, laptop or Windows full version tablet with browser software that supports Adobe Flash is needed to support the browser version of FinishLine Software. 

Our goal in each software implementation is to get your system set up FOR YOUR PROJECT to within 95% accuracy from the start. Once configured, throughout the project, you can dial in inspection tasks and descriptions, modify and add checklists, etc. Our support team is here to assist. We will even swap out a plan if an architectural change occurs, without losing data on the original plan. 

FinishLine Software is part of DayOne Solutions Building Lifecycle platform.  All data collected during Design, Development, Construction and Commissioning will live on into the building’s operational phase.  Your construction management software may have a punch list module, but it comes nowhere near the capabilities of FinishLine Software. Most customers have popular construction management software systems like Procore in place, but they use FinishLine Software for their punch lists. 

FinishLine Software focuses on Field Observations, incomplete Work items, Punch, Logistics, Commissioning and turn-over like no other software on the market. With its unique “Defined Space” technology and its simple interface, it has no rival. FinishLine Software is equally capable for all kinds of check-lists, punch list, completion lists, safety inspections, pre-drywall, pre-pour inspections. All with the same easy to use tablet/smartphone app that can be learned in minutes. It is the right tool for the job. 

Yes! FinishLine Software integrates out of the box with Procore Reporting to improve team communication and report sharing FinishLine also has a deeper Integration called Procore Connect where we can bi-directionally share punch/inspection and other information directly to various modules in ProcoreWith Procore Connect you can have some team members in Procore and others in FinishLine and the two platforms will talk to each other. 

Yes! FinishLine Software integrates with many leading software’s in the marketplace.  Generally, if the other software has an API, we can most likely connect with it.  At this time our API is not user facing so platform connectivity to FinishLine Software would be on a case-by-case basis from our Dev/Tech team. 

For the property management software Entrata, our integration allows for a work order to be pulled into FinishLine Software from Entrata and then pushed from FinishLine Software to Entrata once completed.
