How to Get ROI from Mobile Technology in Construction [ebook]

The Dollars and Sense of Mobile Construction Apps

What would you do with 5 more hours a week? What if you could fast-track a project, enhance collaboration, and answer questions in real time—without making that trek to the jobsite to see for yourself? The latest mobile technology in construction enables you to do just that–allowing you to work faster, easier, and more productively.

Although the construction industry is among the least digitized, the industry is now experiencing a digital transformation. Construction companies of all sizes, which were once reluctant to embrace technology, are now adopting leading-edge technology innovations, such as remote monitoring, drones, robots, and automation. Undoubtedly, we’re witnessing our futuristic vision of the construction industry finally becoming a reality.

The Future of Mobile Technology in Construction

But what does that reality look like? Drones, who can work 24/7 unlike humans, are already hovering over jobsites, capturing details from remote or dangerous areas, making construction sites safer for humans while providing automated computer systems immediate access to mission critical data. Indeed, if you take a walk around a megaproject, you’ll probably catch a glimpse of robots drilling, digging, or performing an array of tasks faster, safer and with more accuracy than a human being. In this sense, we’re now replacing our original myopic image of the computer as a “futuristic” construction technology, and we’re quickly replacing it with printed rooms and self-assembling buildings—that is, with a new image of the construction industry empowered by the progress of technology. In short, we’re the closest we’ve ever been to realizing the promise of automated construction through digital transformation.

While there is a wide array of technology changing the landscape, mobile technology in construction has the most potential to disrupt the industry by providing incredible value relative to its cost, particularly when compared to many technology investments construction companies have made in the past. In fact, mobile construction technology is no longer a fad and is actually revolutionizing the way we build. Mobile apps are enabling a myriad of innovative construction companies to experience significant benefits with a substantial return on investment. By adopting mobile construction apps, you can save time, improve collaboration and planning, automate administrative tasks, and mitigate risks to increase your profit margins.
