Install Compatible Applications
Trimble Viewpoint offers many compatible applications that can help boost your productivity. Some of these options require specific installation or set up steps to get started.
Hardboard and Roll-Up Digitizers
Hardboard and Roll-Up Digitizers from GTCO that make it easy to enter information into ProContractor from a drawing or a blueprint.
Touch Screen Monitors
When you combine a Touch Screen Monitor with ProContractor, you can use the interactive pen to perform takeoff of digital plans directly on the monitor. This allows you to work with more speed, efficiency, and precision. Enjoy the benefits of an all-digital workflow while simulating a pen-on-paper experience.
You can add Industry Catalogs to customize ProContractor to suit your business. Catalogs are available for a variety of industries, including:
- Doors and Windows
- General Contracting
RS Means Catalogs
RS Means supplies construction cost information. To use an RS Means Catalog with ProContractor, you must purchase the catalog directly from RS Means.
You can import RS Means catalogs into the application. Their data has become the pricing standard for government work and is widely used throughout the construction industry. RS Means catalogs help you more precisely estimate your project costs.
ProContractor Mobile allows you to sync data with the ProContractor application using a mobile device. With this powerful tool, you can enter Daily Field Reports, access valuable project management information from anywhere, and employees can submit their time cards. ProContractor Mobile works on iPhones and iPads and Android phones and tablets.
Piracle Create-A-Check integrates with your application to enable you to create MICR-encoded checks for your employees and your vendors.
Export Certified Payroll Data for Use in a Third-Party Application
You can export certified payroll records as needed to a format that can be directly uploaded to a third-party reporting application. Currently, this format has been tested with only LCPtracker applications, LCPtracker Pro and LCPcertified. See Exporting Certified Payroll Data for Use in a Third-Party Application for details.
Advanced Image Manager
You can download and use Viewpoint Advanced Image Manager (AIM) for free as part of your Viewpoint support agreement.
AIM is a valuable tool for modifying and organizing many types of drawings, reports, and image files for import into ProContractor and other applications. You can use AIM to remove unneeded pages, rotate images, and select layers to import. You can then save the file as a PDF or export it for digital takeoff. To attach scanned invoices, you can drag and drop pages directly from AIM into a vendor invoice record in ProContractor.
