Today, we are excited to share that the FINALCAD app for Windows 10 is available for Tablets and PCs to download from the windows store. You can download it here.

Designed to run quickly within Windows 10 and with the most up-to-date features, FINALCAD built a new experience making all our modules (blueprints, defects, controls, structural work progress & secondary work progress) available on Windows OS.

FINALCAD is the only construction app for the field available on all OS and all mobile devices with the same set of features and a native design for a consistent user experience on iOS, Android and Windows so everyone has the same benefits.

“What’s really nice about FINALCAD is, we had iPads on our end and subcontractors had Microsoft Surface tablets, yet the app is available on all kinds of devices, so we were able to easily collaborate with all stakeholders and share more than 5,000 photos and more than 50,000 observations on this project.” Daniel Maksimov, Project Manager at SEMAPA.

 

A brand new design

FINALCAD app uses Windows 10 power to provide a quicker experience thanks to a complete back-end refactoring. This new version comes also with a brand new design which is a step forward from a user interface and user experience perspective. There is no reason that field workers don’t get the app they deserve!

Navigate quickly within your building using the list of areas on the left panel or directly at the top of the screen using dynamic sectors and areas on the blueprints.

 

Pin your issues and quality controls with precision directly on high definition blueprints.

 

Get a complete report of all your observations to know to which area or contractor you should pay attention to.
