Deviation handling

Manage deviations effectively in your construction projects with Next to ensure proper compensation for the work done.

Streamline your deviation handling

A construction project is a complex process, and regardless of how well-designed and planned the project is, deviations will inevitably arise. Good deviation management within construction is a crucial building block for getting paid for the work you have actually done! Next’s module for deviation management equips you with robust tools to handle all types of deviations.

Centralised management of deviations and AAW

Centralise all data related to each deviation report, with ample marking fields and colour coding for alerts, ensuring you have complete oversight despite numerous deviations and associated AAW:s​​.

Comprehensive coverage of deviations

The Next deviation feature covers all types and forms of deviations, including question/answer deviations, adjusted drawings, work environment, delivery issues, or additional orders. It facilitates an intuitive and easy process for handling deviations in construction.

Email templates for efficient communication
