Construction

Picking up the rapid pace of technological change

What We Are Seeing

Architectural Engineering and Construction (AEC) companies are looking for new ways to distinguish themselves from the competition to win projects, deliver more efficiently, and improve profitability. Technology can be the answer, bringing assets, people, processes, and job sites onto one platform so everyone and everything works smarter to:

  • Reduce downtime
  • Optimize asset utilization and efficiency
  • Gain visibility into operations

But the construction industry is behind the curve when it comes to technology, and on-premises legacy systems still dominate most organizations. To gain the needed competitive advantage, contractors need to modernize their infrastructures, platforms, and applications and begin absorbing the rapid pace of technological change.

It’s not an if question any longer, but rather a when question.

The Benefits of Digital Construction Technology

How exactly can technology help the construction industry? Let us dive in.

Collaborate from Field to Office

Bridging the gap between field and office is key to unlocking improved productivity. Without up-to-date information available anytime and anywhere, the potential for errors and costly rework is high. Real-time project information lets you make faster and more informed decisions. It’s a significant opportunity—traditionally, information collection and analysis took days or even months!

Better Understand Assets

Assets play an outsized role in determining the productivity of your construction organization. The availability of equipment will determine the timeline for projects, while effective storage and preventative maintenance of these assets has a major effect on budget. The more clearly you understand the expense of using each piece of equipment and material, the more accurately you can keep your project running at peak efficiency and better plan asset use for future projects.

Automate Timekeeping

You can use the power of technology to provide self-service capabilities for employees to access information and perform clock in, clock out and other administrative functions on their own from a mobile device. When you establish direct lines of communication with the field, project managers are kept up to date in real time on activities to ensure all projects, large and small, are moving along smoothly.

When it comes to safety where there are never enough ‘eyes’ to go around. Using smart technology can lead to dramatic improvements in safety incidents. Mobile solutions can help project managers ensure everyone is working safely in the right place, at the right time, and on the right tasks. With sensor technology, you can be alerted to maintenance issues before they impede the project schedule.
