Field crews and supervisors make 100’s of decisions on our behalf daily which could cost or save money or time. They are always extremely busy and need to be provided with the right backup and tools from management. There are only a handful of tools on the market that have been designed in conjunction with the field crews to make their work effective and efficient. These tools make the complete project management process more transparent; highlighting safety quality and commercial issues.
The requirement for these tools on the work front is becoming an increasing necessity, especially in the digital age. The perfect solution is a program that has been developed in from the ground up, where the users on the work front have had direct input into creating the tool they are going to use. At 152hq, we have seen all too many companies implement technology without consulting their field crews or supervisors first, often with terrible results. Nobody wants to use it, it’s too hard, it doesn’t fit the workflow, or the program simply doesn’t allow them to capture the type of data they want.
It’s time we started listening to the feedback of our most valuable assets on the construction site. It’s the only way we companies can implement a software tool that will actually work.
