Allegion’s New Site Survey Tool for Overtur Mobile Enhances Collaboration
Overtur is a digital environment where project team members come together to collaborate on the specification, design and construction of door security and openings.
CARMEL, Ind. — Allegion U.S. announces the release of the Site Survey module for Overtur Mobile. Expanding on Overtur Mobile’s existing suite of tools, Site Survey joins the Punch List and Installation Status modules to simplify the design, construction and management of doors and openings.
Overtur is a digital environment where project team members come together to collaborate on the specification, design and construction of door security and openings. It provides a centralized place to capture, maintain and verify door hardware requirements and decisions.
Allegion says Site Survey elevates the door opening information gathering process by encompassing support capabilities at the beginning and throughout the life cycle of a project.
Professionals can now go to a building site with a mobile device and capture needed information for the design and construction of door openings, including hardware products, photos and notes of the existing conditions, as well as opening dimensions.
Utilizing the gathered information, a project team can seamlessly continue with design and construction, and ultimately facility management, according to the company.
“The functionality we’re building into Overtur with tools such as Site Survey exemplify another simple way you can improve time and efficiency without disrupting your current workflow,” says Rachael York, peripheral application lead, Overtur. “With Site Survey, you not only make the process easier for your team, you also make it easier for your clients to communicate their needs.”
Allegion says Site Survey provides the user with enhanced tools to:
- Create multiple surveys: Users can go from site to site and create multiple surveys from their mobile device, increasing productivity.
- Create new openings: Customers do not need to be in front of a computer to start a project, and can seamlessly begin from a mobile device, creating openings, with or without plans.
- Take photos and voice memos associated with an opening: Visuals can be captured and documented for utilization in design and construction, and ultimately throughout the life cycle of the project or building.
- Create formatted reports: Once site survey data is synchronized, formatted reports can be generated with door opening information, including consolidated notes and photos.
Vice President of Wesche Hardware Jacob McConnell, an Overtur Mobile user, says, “I’m thrilled to have Site Survey so that I no longer have to wait to be back in the office to update my changes stemming from a site visit, which was a tedious process. Time that was spent interpreting my notes, transferring pictures and confirming everything back with the contractor and architect can now be done onsite, in real-time. Additionally, with everyone present for immediate approval and sign off, it’s increasing my confidence in changes made and improving overall efficiency.”
Overtur Mobile is now available in the Apple and Google Play Stores, and can be accessed via phones or tablets using either an iOS or Android operating system. Learn more about the platform in the video below.
