Be the part of the fast moving construction industry
Going digital is not a new idea for the construction industry. We have seen this industry adopt digitization from more than a decade now and experts say there is still room for improvement. Most of the digitization space is focused on enhancing efficiency of operations in the realm of architecture, drawing, enterprise resource planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM). The equally vital aspect of Safety is going to be next area for the digitization movement.
‘Why Paperless?’ is the most common question that comes next.
. Ever since the construction segment migrated to the digital platform, the industry has reaped positive results. Digitization helped in faster information exchange, easy documentation, quicker approvals and eliminating wastage in the resources, time and energy. Now mobile first evolution is automating the processes even at the remote sites and making day to day tasks more efficient.
Prior to digitization, the industry was saddled with issues of visibility, accessibility, lack of transparency and accountability as most of the records were in paper form. Experts say organizations could not take timely corrective actions because they were oblivious to the happenings at the construction sites at any given point of time. Dependance on manual documentation and oral communication severely hampered the possibility to understand the safety trends, derive analytics out of the data they were recording.
Digitization is found to be capable of answering these challenges as well as ringing in built-in safety protocols for a secure ecosystem in the construction industry as a whole.
