Data can be displayed as tables or graphs and filtered, ordered and downloaded in a variety of useful PDF layouts, or exported to Excel for further analysis. Produce and export activity reports, tracker views, plan views, subcontractor worksheets and room sheets.
Snagmaster™ improves project productivity by securely managing site data in a single project portal.
Defects & Issues
Defects and issues can be managed via web browser or via a companion App on a mobile device. The Snagmaster™ Apps, developed for iOS and Android, allow users to operate offline with full functionality and synchronise securely and seamlessly with the project portal.
Users are presented a feature set relevant to their project role and can add and update snags, add and annotate photos, mark–up plans, pinpoint ssues, share comments, store GPS data, and sketch.
Project definable categories combined with powerful filters allows subsets of issues to be easily isolated, sorted and reported on. The web–portal and the Apps are easy to use, ensuring everyone can use them.
Forms & Permits
The construction industry is hybrid, where electronic means are often used to record information but paper forms can still be commonplace. Snagmaster's forms module covers both aspects.
Digital forms can be designed in Snagmaster and configured to output to PDF in the original layout if required.
Forms are completed via the web–portal or the Apps. Both allow easy augmenting with supporting information like photos, pinpoints, markups, GPS and so on. Auto–emailing, alarms and completion targets aid activity, while mandatory photos, input masks and prompts ensure data is recorded at the time.
Forms are listed in discrete registers, and also viewed via tracker grids, weekly summaries and exception reports.
Checklists & Audit
Modern construction thrives on assurance, proof and provenance and Snagmaster provides this at every level via its Checklists module.
Easy to create or import and even simpler to use, features like milestones and trackers allow operations such as H&S, progress, quality, condition, estimating and auditing to be managed.
Checklists are completed by main or sub contractor users and contain features such as direct snag creation, mandatory photos, closure rules, and unlimited signatories.
Responses can be augmented with an array of supporting information e.g. photos, annotations, markups, pinpoints and so on. Checklists are displayed discretely in registers or as a tracker/progress view and a range of export and download options are available as PDF and Excel.
Snagmaster has powerful enterprise features to make administration of the system easy. Things like standard work packages and a central list of subcontractors makes like for like analysis across the business possible. Project templates mean new projects come online fast. Centralised form management means form design changes are instantly rolled out to everyone with the click of a button.
At the end of the project, Snagmaster's auto–archive routines will create a stand–alone searchable archive of your project, including all original source files and data. Ideal for the O&M records.
Reporting across business divisions is simple as Snagmaster provides filterable, exportable global registers of NCRs, defects and forms. Usage graphs, S–curves, aged analysis, summary grids and exception reports all help the quality team keep an eye on things and the project team deliver.
Snagging which can also be referred to as a punch list. It is a common term used throughout the construction industry and is the necessary task of compiling a complete list of outstanding faults or repairs that require to be rectified before the project can be completed and/or signed off, ensuring satisfied clients if done correctly. Snagmaster is a complete snagging tool developed for snagging any size project.
A snag is a flaw or defect that must be fixed to satisfy the client's demands and maintain the integrity and safety of the finished project. This might be something that is damaged, broken, incomplete, or installed improperly. Even though they are frequently superficial, serious snags can have major time and monetary implications. To prevent issues later on, it is preferable to identify these items as soon as possible.
Snags and defects are two terms that are often used interchangeably in many sectors, including manufacturing, construction, and engineering.
A snag tends to refer to minor issues or flaws that need to be rectified but should not significantly affect the functionality or performance of a product. An issue that is typically fixable and hopefully will not compromise the overall quality of the build.
Snags are often found in construction, where cosmetic flaws can be easily caused in the build phase.
A Defect can suggest more serious issue that would significantly impact the functionality or performance of a product. It is a flaw or imperfection that could render a product unusable or unsafe for its intended purpose. Defects would typically require significant repairs or even complete replacement of the product. In some cases, defects can pose a serious safety risk to consumers.
It is important for all sectors to take steps to identify all snags and defects in their products, both to ensure client satisfaction and to prevent potential harm to consumers. When snagging a project it is important that all snags and/or defects are caught and managed so that.
Snagmaster ensures that all snags or defects can be identified as soon as possible and will be managed and processed correctly.
Snagging is a critical phase of construction that guarantees a new build project complies with the necessary quality standards and specifications. Snagging, in its broadest sense, describes the process of inspecting a new building for faults that need to be fixed.
Here are some of the types of snags or defects that might occur on a construction project:
- Snags that develop over time, such as plaster cracks and paintwork scuffs.
- Issues relating to substandard craftsmanship.
- Defects resulting from incorrect design and material installation.
- Installation steps that were overlooked or skipped.
- Latent repercussions brought on by the problems described above.
A snagging tool is the method used on project sites to record and manage any faults or repairs that must be rectified before it is complete. This might be anything from a straightforward spreadsheet to a full-fledged snagging software package. The major benefit of using a dedicated snagging tool over simple snag sheet is that it enables you to connect all trades on your project through a single system and alert them to any snags that are discovered right away, saving time and money. Snagmaster is a complete snagging tool. Developed for snagging any size construction project and connecting all project users from Clients to Managers to Subcontractors. Additionally, our software and app can manage and digitise project checklists, forms, audits and reports.
The main purpose of a snagging survey or punch list. Is to document any problems or 'snags' ranging from minor defects like cracked paint to major faults such as incorrect installations. This list should be continually updated and managed so that all problems are completely rectified before handing over to the customer. Snagmaster has been built to make the process of generating and managing snagging lists clear so that all users can work efficiently and projects are completed to the best possible standards.
Clients and homeowners can create their own snagging list, but a project manager or contractor should be compiling a snagging list as the job progresses to avoid serious issues further down the line. As each stage of the job is completed, problems should be logged and rectified as soon as possible so they are kept on top of. Snagmaster offers a variety of flexible access options for all different sorts of project users, including managers, subcontractors, and clients.
Generally snagging should take place as soon as an area or build is considered complete by a contractor and is offered ready for inspection. Ideally snag inspections should take place after all debris and obstructions have been removed with full lighting in place. On large projects the inspection process may need to be carried out in sections as areas are progressively completed and closed off. Snagmaster contains all your project information in one secure site accessible by your whole team at any time on any device. Some sites might require users to be offline Snagmaster can also work offline and sync data when suitable.
The first step in the snagging process is to identify and provide as much information about any snags that must be resolved before the project can be completed. To ensure that the relevant subcontractor receives all the information necessary to fix the problem accurately and effectively, these snags must be assigned a manager and documented as thoroughly as possible. Once the subcontractor has fixed the snag, it must be officially approved and closed by the designated manager (and/or customer) or rejected in order for any adjustments or additional instructions to be given. You may provide the ability to raise snags to any user with Snagmaster. Snags can also be raised from the process of completing project checklists and/or forms.
Here are a few things you need to consider to choose the best snagging software for you.
Free trials are important so that you can get hands on before committing to new software but hidden costs are common within new apps on the market. Enticing users with a free trial of the software, but then expecting them to pay to access different features. Snagmasters 30 day free trial is fully featured and completely free.
Construction site workers, subcontractors, and project managers are just a few of the personnel who frequently work on the large task of snagging. Using the cloud, data is uploaded to a single, safe area where many people can collaborate to fix bugs and flaws. Snagging software lacks its purpose if it cannot use the cloud, making the information it collects unavailable to everyone. Snagmaster contains all your project information in one secure site accessible by your whole team at any time. Some sites might require users to be offline Snagmaster can also work offline and sync data when suitable.
Lack of information about new snagging software is one of the major problems that many businesses face. Although it is demonstrated to be straightforward, when managers and subcontractors do it themselves, it becomes more difficult. Users are able to work more productively if the software can offer on-site training, tutorials, and useful tips and tricks. A new application must be accompanied by training if it is to be fully utilised by users. Snagmaster has a dedicated UK support team, onsite training and guides available to get it working for you quickly and with the minimum of effort.
In the construction industry, main contractors perform the majority of the snagging. They must guarantee that the installations carried out by their subcontractors are done correctly. So, how do you manage to incorporate your subcontractors into your digital snagging tool? Organisation, communication, and accountability would all inevitably improve if workers had a single snagging app that all users can access. Snagmaster has access options for all types of construction user from main users to subcontractors to clients with many configurable options.
The best snagging software should be able to create useful progress reports so that you can use the information to your best advantage. A versatile reporting function will allow you to cut down on hours of spreadsheet work. Snagmaster has many preset chart options and the ability to download pdf /xls data at any time.
