One App for Kitchen Installation Companies – from Measuring to Punch list.
Increase the transparency of your projects thanks to a simple app
and induce a good impulse of productivity for your employees.
Contrary to general contractors who coordinate a project from A to Z, kitchen installation companies often have many short-term projects. They form a link in the building process of new construction, but also take on reconstruction projects that take just a few days.
Managing a project (large or small) is no easy task: different partners, employees, unforeseen circumstances, and… administration!
Paper plans and sketches are not updated continuously and it is virtually impossible to have everybody work with the same, latest, version.
A measurement at the client’s site with pen and paper is also not evident. We’re not going to beat around the bush; sooner or later this creates communication problems (as an example: the paper with the measurements is illegible, in the best case scenario the pictures are mailed in later, or too late,…). Result: delay of the project which also has consequences in the budgetary department.
After the approval of the quote and after the production of the order of the material, an assembly team starts working at the client’s site for the placement or installation.
The assembly team takes pictures and checks a number of things. However, if there are complaints after the punch list, you end up in a chaos of pictures and invoices. -> Result: awkward discussions, dissatisfied clients, etc.
ArchiSnapper is a simple and user-friendly app that does not require previous training. ArchiSnapper helps you in a simple way to digitally register all the information from measurement to punch list, for all of your projects.
- measurement at the client
- run down a check list
- check placement
- note comments
- add pictures immediately
- sketch on a white background, on a picture, or a ground plan
- a digital paperless punch list
All of this is possible. Also Offline! After every project visit a report is generated automatically, based on these measurements, required materials, comments, pictures and sketches. The measurement report or punch list can quickly be shared with numerous people.
Taking measurements with the ArchiSnapper App
Step 1: Create your check list “Measurement Kitchen”
Make your own check list (template) for measurements at the client.
Step 2: Use your check list “Measurement Kitchen” at the client’s site
Go to work with this checklist for measurements at the client with the ArchiSnapper App. Add observations and measurements and link pictures, assignee, text, location or annotation on the plan. For every item there are standard texts that you can set yourself. That way you avoid unnecessary type work.
Step 3: Share your report with your partners
With a number of clicks you will generate a detailed measurement report. Your partners (project employees, subcontractors, team members, etc.) receive their tasks and other documents at the worksite and at the office.
Psst, did you know that with ArchiSnapper you can personalize reports with the house style and logo of your own company?

Follow up and Punch List with the ArchiSnapper App
Step 4: Follow up on the placement
Follow up on the placement and assembly of your projects with ArchiSnapper. Also, during the execution it comes in handy to digitally register certain information with the corresponding pictures right away. For example: the points that have not been checked off yet, or certain things that have to be done at the office (order additional materials, plan new appointments, invoicing, etc.). Do it right on the spot with ArchiSnapper and possibly use a check list.
This way the pictures are included immediately with the correct project, possibly with a person responsible (who has to execute this point) and an indication on a plan:
Step 5: Check your checklist again at the end of the project
A crucial moment for every project is the finishing of the placement or installation, which is the punch list. To avoid possible disputes or ambiguities it is important to make a punch list report, complete with pictures. You can even ask the client to sign the report.
ArchiSnapper increases the transparency and ensures that everything is clear for everybody. In a way, ArchiSnapper helps you to divide the work better and easier and to follow up.
