In an industry facing economic uncertainty, an ageing workforce and a revolutionary onset of technological innovation, pioneering firms are using digital construction methods to boost profit margins, changing the way the industry as a whole delivers projects.
Connecting the back office and site staff has long been a stumbling block for construction companies, reports Construction News, resulting in silos of data and disparate systems holding out-of-date information. With modern industry specific house building software, like Eque2’s Housebuilding, project progress can be monitored and updated in real-time, ensuring everyone is always on the same page.
Other tools boosting productivity (and ultimately, profitability) include site operatives using apps to create group chats and MS Outlook for emails, meetings and minutes.
Ensuring remote and on-the-go access to project data via employee smartphones with mobile-friendly house building software and apps makes it even easier to keep the entire team informed. It also guarantees projects won’t go awry between the office and the construction site.
With fewer young people entering construction, and its image as an old-fashioned, spreadsheet-reliant industry proving hard to shake, innovative tech is key to drawing in a younger workforce. Graduates entering the industry have grown up with technology in every aspect of their lives; they expect the same in the workplace. Expecting them to work with outdated systems that are at best clunky, at worst a hindrance, can cause frustration on both sides.
Fast, streamlined systems bring out the best in everyone by destroying silos of data and saving staff time on lengthy admin tasks, freeing people up to focus on driving the business forward. When manual processes are automated by the use of industry specific solutions, such as house building software, your business becomes more competitive – and more attractive to young workers.
