SYNCHRO Field is the solution to managing projects from the construction job site. By capturing accurate, real-time data with highly efficient geo-located maps and weather services, the entire team will gain insight and communicate effectively to drive field productivity.
Main hardware requirements come from how complex the project model, schedule, and PDF plan sets are. The 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 size - downloaded models, schedules, documents, and PDF plan sets stored for fast offline access will need an equal amount of storage space.
Most other SYNCHRO Field features (forms, inspections, documents, maps, etc.) have lower hardware requirements, so most modern phones or tablets released after 2018 with the latest OS versions would handle them.
If you are planning to stock up on specific hardware for field work - be sure to test SYNCHRO Field app with similarly complex projects, especially if you plan to use more demanding features.
Please refer to the section Supported hardware and systems for details.
Yes, SYNCHRO Field downloads and saves data locally not limited to models, schedule data, all forms but not attachments, when applicable. Again the amount of data is dependent on project and model size. SYNCHRO Field also supports working offline without an internet connection. It is recommended to have at least 4GB of free space, and the more the better, if using SYNCHRO Field on multiple models projects is intended.
Due to format differences, iModel produced from the .sp file is almost always 2-5 times larger compared original .sp which is highly compressed.
SYNCHRO Field supports working offline without an internet connection, and it is recommended to download models and documents that the user intends to work with onto the device before going offline. This is to support access to your project data on job sites without stable internet.
