Northwest General Contractor "Nails It" with TappInProfile

From simple kitchen and bathroom remodels to major renovations and new construction, Yoder Construction has changed homes and the lives of their owners.Situation
Situation Yoder Construction performs a wide variety of home construction and renovations. Plans can be as simple as a sketch on napkin to reams of architectural plans rolled into small paper logs. If a required document is inadvertently left behind at the office, the project can be delayed or stopped dead. Any delay is costly to both the client and the contractor.Challenge
Owner, Barin Yoder, often carried paper plans and files to the job site, along with any pertinent information or specifications for a variety of building products. Transporting, organizing and referring to paper documents was cumbersome and inconvenient.Solution
Barin registered for TappIn and in seconds had installed the TappIn Desktop App on his work computer. He then downloaded the TappIn for iPad app from the App Store to his Apple iPad 2. Immediately following installation, he was able to remotely access digital files residing on his work computer using his iPad 2.
Plans and specifications are now just a tap away. Project delays are now mostly a thing of the past. Change orders can be accessed, completed and approved in minutes onsite. Collaborating with the clients, architects and subcontractors is now easier and more efficient. Documents can be shared quickly—even via email or texting. Barin can now remotely tap into and share any digital file from his work computer using his iPad 2 from anywhere.
"Not having access to a required plan or spec could temporarily shut down a job and that can have a significant financial impact on both the owner and the contractor," says Barin. "With TappIn, I can immediately access the information I need when I need it—avoiding project delays while keeping the client happy. TappIn has really become a tool I rely on every day."
