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 and task management with fewer people by streamlining processes and making existing 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, are optimized for one-handed data entry (i.e., speech-to-text), and tie into construction systems and databases to deliver critical job site information, construction calculations or generate daily reports.

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

With mobile apps, not only will data capture and sharing improve, but utilizing data to make better and faster business decisions will save the company time and money.

"Without Alpha, I would have had to outsource development to an outside software company because we needed a sophisticated system with a strong back-end, and we couldn't have built that ourselves. We've saved at least 50% in costs and time."
