How Mobile Apps Benefit Construction Companies

Experts report that 94% of construction companies are having difficulty filling open positions. Mobile apps allow construction companies to do more work with fewer people by streamlining processes and making workers more productive. Digitizing business processes and paper forms enables construction companies to:

  • Increase worker efficiency by reducing the hours spent on each daily activity.
  • Capture the knowledge of more experienced workers in intelligent apps that can guide less experienced workers.
  • Lower risk by reducing data entry mistakes and delayed access to critical data.

The best construction apps work with a cell or WiFi connection. They are optimized for one-handed data entry, and tie into construction systems. These construction apps can deliver critical job site information, conduct construction calculations, or generate daily reports.

More than 35% of construction professionals' time is spent on unproductive activities. This includes looking for project information, and dealing with mistakes and rework.

Building mobile construction apps will dramatically improve data collection and information sharing. More accurate data will power better and faster business decisions, and save the company time and money. You'll gain more productivity from teams on the project site to teams in the office.
