Jobsite Connectivity

Connection is Critical for Your Design-Build Jobsite

Many of the delays that happen in a construction project boil down to one thing: communication silos. The time it takes to coordinate, schedule, relay messages, confirm or amend, estimate, etc can be better spent when all the parties come together to form an all-inclusive construction package.

Reducing friction between parties, avoiding the blame game, and improving coordination all lend themselves to better outcomes on a project timeline.

While your design-build approach definitely sets you up for success, there’s a critical component to its success that’s often not discussed: your connection in the field.

Turn-Key Jobsite Connectivity: The Best Remote Connection

Often, construction companies in need of remote connectivity choose to follow big-name ISPs simply because choice seems limited. But these solutions are not typically turn-key options, or rather, connections that you won’t have to give another thought to once implemented (which is the whole idea, after all).

Secure Your IoT Devices on Your Jobsite

The Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly becoming an integrated part of the jobsite. IoT devices improve security, increase efficiency, reduce safety hazards, and maximize savings. But the downside is that currently, security on IoT devices is sorely lacking, and as IoT becomes more interconnected across the jobsite, this poses an ever-growing security risk to your construction data.

Construction Companies Must Buy-In to Field Connectivity

Traditional ISPs can be difficult to work with when it comes to reliable jobsite connectivity. When your productivity, communication, and ultimate success hinges on having the right amount of bandwidth at the right time, the last thing you want is to be stuck on hold with an ISP.

Hard-to-reach locations require a little extra care from your provider, often involving custom-designed solutions that will make sure you stay connected at every nook and cranny of your jobsite. Not just at the trailer, not just at one part of your jobsite, the entire jobsite. And it needs to be scalable so that as your job expands, your connection grows with it.

Solutions to Barriers in Construction Digitization

It’s no secret that the construction industry has been notoriously slow to digitize, but the tides are turning, and many companies are hopping aboard the digital train. However, as with all revolutions, there are barriers to adopting change, and in order to ensure that your company stays on track, you must be prepared to address and overcome them.

Construction Technology: Productivity Tools for 2019

Productivity on the jobsite is critical. It’s estimated that on the jobsite, 70% of time is wasted on work not directly related to building. Backend tasks, like paperwork, supply acquisition, information exchanges, contracts, etc, gobble up time, dragging projects out which increases costs.

With 2019 just around the corner, it’s time to shape up your construction business, streamline your back-of-house tasks, and free your team to focus on their primary job functions. We found a few of the best productivity tools in the industry that your company should implement ASAP.

Your network, simplified. Three of the key areas for network maturity

As technologies continue to emerge in the marketplace, businesses are faced with the challenge of figuring out how to get the most value out of new tech investments. One of the biggest challenges in today’s data and cloud-driven environment is to ensure that the network infrastructure can support the load of these new technologies.

AEC is teetering on the edge of digital transformation

According to a recent study conducted by Dodge Data & Analytics, the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) industry is essentially all-in and primed for a massive digital transformation.  What does that mean, and what are the implications?

3 Reasons Your Business May Need Network Management Assistance

How do businesses manage the complexities that come along with today’s demands on bandwidth? Plenty of businesses choose to continue managing their networks internally – and if you’ve got the resources and skills in-house, we say go for it! Of course, this won’t always be the case. Often, an IT department becomes stretched thin when connectivity management is added to the regular, daily responsibilities of the team – especially within decentralized organizations.
