SYNCHRO Field is the solution to managing projects from the construction job site. By capturing accurate, real-time data with highly efficient geo-located map and weather services, the entire team will gain insight and communicate effectively to drive field productivity.
Main hardware requirements come from how complex project model, schedule and PDF plans are. Performance will mostly be affected when downloading, processing and reviewing complex data, so using powerful hardware on large projects is recommended. That affects all hardware areas - CPU, GPU and RAM. Device storage requirement is directly proportional to project data - downloaded models, schedule, documents and PDF plan sets stored for fast and offline access will need equal amount of storage space.
Most other SYNCHRO Field features (forms, inspections, documents, map, etc.) have lower hardware requirements, so most modern phones or tablets released after 2018 with latest OS versions would handle them.
If you are planning to stock up specific hardware for field work - be sure to test SYNCHRO Field app with similarly complex projects, especially if you plan to use demanding features.
