NoteVault: Pioneering Mobile Reporting Solutions For Construction

CIO VendorPeter J. Lasensky, President & CEO
“Necessity is the mother of invention", but Peter Lasensky, founder of NoteVault says, “In my case, pain was the mother of invention.” He added that the void in construction industry with regards to the lack of interoperability frustrated him, and this led to the development of NoteVault.

NoteVault offers simple, yet compelling solutions for voice-to-text-based mobile reporting in the construction domain. The solutions offered create a standard schema for documents in all fields of construction resulting in an easier way to share information.

NoteVault connects construction companies “feet on the street” to their back office, by enabling superintendents and foremen to do their reporting from mobile phone using voice, including photos and video clips. It provides quality reports that are done real time, with all the data retained for 10 years, plus generates an independent time and location record of events, which enables companies to quickly allocate the costs for delays and overruns to the responsible party. The company’s hosted solution gives the liberty to construction professionals to not only report but also share the valuable data from various verticals. It also gives management real-time project visibility, which can be invaluable in avoiding or prevailing on disputes, wrongful claims or damaging lawsuits.

Lasensky says, “With NoteVault, project information becomes a ‘strategic asset’ since the information is always up-to-date and available via the web to authorized team members.” And he adds, “Research shows nearly 50 percent of all construction projects involve some type of dispute. NoteVault fills the reporting gap for contractors and helps protect them against potentially damaging claims. ”NoteVault’s hosted solutions can work on multiple languages including Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and Hindi languages,
for example, and automatically translate and transcribe them into English. The Daily construction reports are then compiled and displayed in English, and are automatically sent out to management and customers to give them unprecedented visibility into events and conditions on the job site.


NoteVault will continue to innovate and look for opportunity in growth sectors of the construction industry



Additionally, NoteVault recently released NoteVault crowdSource Safety. This service is designed to give all personnel the ability to actively participate in their own safety on the job site. NoteVault CrowdSource Safety allows everyone to report safety issues anonymously, greatly helping to reduce accidents, by quickly identifying risks and enabling the safety team to remediate these issues before an accident occurs. NoteVault is used throughout the United States and internationally by construction and construction management companies of all sizes, including many of the largest in the industry. It presently serves more than 150 contractor customers.

Brent Leif, Construction Manager of Hunt Construction says, “NoteVault technology is the new standard of project reporting and has pushed the boundaries further than ever before. We are proud to be a leader of this new era of construction, and are excited to see what the future of the technology will bring.”

Moving forward, “NoteVault will continue to innovate and look for opportunity in growth sectors of the construction industry,” says Lasensky.
