Award-winning mobile solutions specialist WorkMobile has launched a specially developed mobile app for the construction sector, which allows tradespeople to easily collect, monitor and share data to improve business processes such as site inspections.
WorkMobile Construction allows construction workers to capture data in real-time through mobile forms, that can be accessed through users’ smartphones, tablets, laptops or PCs via the cloud.
The apps flexible form designers allows users to create mobile forms relevant to the specific contract including site inspections, health and safety forms and timesheet for all contractors on site.
By harnessing cloud-based technology, forms can be quickly deployed to mobile devices and amended from contract to contract, allowing staff to receive electronic forms directly from the contractor out in the field to back-office systems in real-time.
By reducing the need for paperwork, the WorkMobile Construction app helps to reduce user errors, prevent damage and loss, and save time and money.
Colin Yates, business programmes director at WorkMobile, commented: “Construction projects usually involve the co-ordination of a great number of people, materials and components. And site inspections are a crucial part of ensuring that the work progresses as intended, and comply with health and safety regulations.
“To ensure construction projects run as smoothly as possible, WorkMobile Construction has been developed to improve the workflow, quality and performance of this type of work by reducing the need of laborious paper work, which can be lost or inaccurate.”
WorkMobile Construction allows all manner of data to captured both online and offline, including date, time, location, photos and signatures.
Forms can be issues to employees and contractors providing instructions and command site inspection data as quickly as possible. Because of the apps flexibility, they can then be quickly and accurately completed and returned to the central office, geo-location and time-stamped, so that a business knows exactly where and when a person returned the form.
Colin concluded: “By embracing this type of digital technology, construction firms can help to improve their businesses efficiency and operational return on investment.”
