By saving time and reducing error, mobile technology lets construction professionals boost profits while keeping their clients happier. Getting the greatest benefit out of a mobile device requires choosing the right construction apps, and there are a few that stand out above the rest.
Some half-million construction professionals use this app to keep their entire team informed in an accurate and timely manner. The Job Estimator function allows contractors to calculate cost estimates directly on site. The cost of materials, equipment use, and labor is all taken into account.
Using the Daily Report and Maintenance Log functions, workers can easily file all project-related information from the field. The result is a consistent, detailed record of the project’s daily progress that makes it easy to spot any developing problems and prevent delays. The speed and simplicity of record-keeping means less risk of lost paperwork and forgotten details.
PlanGrid is a project collaboration app that lets everyone on the team share and contribute to the project from any location. Boasting an exceptionally fast blueprint viewer, the app lets team members get down to business instead of hassling with slow-rendering plans.
Markups and notes instantly sync, so users can always access the current set of plans. They’ll receive instant notification when a change is made, allowing them to review and share their input immediately. The app organizes project photos by automatically tagging and archiving them, so all team members can quickly find the photos they need.
One of the greatest benefits of construction apps is their ability to keep track of everyone working on the project no matter where they are. Using Synchroteam, managers can schedule and dispatch workers with a simple drag-and-drop, and can track current jobs at a glance. Work orders are easy to review for information such as location and equipment required. The app sends notifications for new and rescheduled jobs, reducing the risk of jobs being left undone.
