Under this partnership, NACT members and customers use a pre-configured deployment of Connixt’s flagship mobile field management suite, iMarq FM™, to achieve greater efficiencies across project sites nationwide. The mobile-driven capabilities delivered by this partnership covers the entire project life-cycle from inspection and estimation through work orders, daily project updates and invoicing.
“NACT performs work across North America, and it is essential that both we and our customers have reliable visibility across all projects and activities in the field,” says Jim Andrews, the Chairman of NACT and President of American Restore, a NACT member and user of the Connixt mobile suite. “At American Restore, customers now use the Connixt iMarq FM to create an electronic service request, which is instantly received by us for further action. The request is automatically geo-tagged and time-stamped – so we know exactly where the issue has been reported, and when. And the customer receives real-time progress updates as our crew responds to the request right from the field.”
Connixt’s iMarq FM suite automates a range of field management functions that include service requests, work orders, scheduling and tracking, daily progress updates, chain of custody for sampling and testing and material movement. iMarq FM includes features essential to effective field work management such as workflows, photo-capture, signatures, in addition to real-time analytics and reporting.

We are pleased the NACT recognizes the value we deliver on all these fronts.”
