iPad Guide

It is not necessary to use iCloud, Apple ID, or iTunes to operate your iPad.

When you receive a new iPhone or iPad, your company email address will already be set up on the device.  All the apps that you will need to carry out tasks can be installed through the Self-Service App.  If you have a special request for an app that is not available through self-service you will need to ask your Project Manager to contact the IT department to grant installation.  


Download work-related apps

All of the software that you will need can be found within this app.  You can download work related apps as necessary from Self-Service. 

Self-Service App list

To download a new app through Self-Service, open the app and simply touch 'Install' under the corresponding App you wish to install. 


Procore is a cloud-based construction management software application that helps firms increase their project efficiency and accountability by providing streamlined project communication and documentation.   If you have never used this app before a project GC will set up your initial account and login information.
