Using FinishLine throughout the Building Lifecycle: Design, Build, Operate

Blog: December 18, 2020

When FinishLine was initially developed in 2006, the software was intended for managing construction punch lists. Since then, FinishLine’s capabilities have extended well beyond the typical final punch or closeout timeline, enabling project stakeholders to improve efficiency, reduce risk, and mitigate liability on many aspects of the building lifecycle while providing years of added value for Owners, operators, and Managers.

Using a dedicated platform like FinishLine from Design to Groundbreak and Construction phases and then into the Operations and maintenance efforts have numerous benefits such as ‘near real-time cloud-based operation’, ‘one source of the truth’, improved collaboration using smart phones, tablets or computers, streamlining numerous Business Processes, lists (checklists, safety, reports), and easy access to detailed records in a database.

Final Punch is only the beginning.
