“Tech will transform from something we actively use to a more seamless integrated experience that is ‘on’ all the time.”
– Daniel Bæk, Co-founder of Nodes
The issue of web app VS mobile app is one of the hottest topics of debate in almost every industry for many years. Web apps have played a significant role in the construction industry since the industry adopted tech. While the web has improved the construction process, implementation of tech should be a part of a broader strategic platform. According to World Economic Forum, “Wherever the new technologies have properly supported the industry, the outlook is an almost 20 percent reduction in total life cycle costs of a project, as well as substantial improvements in completion time, quality, and safety.”
Construction Management Mobile Apps in Power
Above all, the most widely adopted of all new technologies are mobile devices. The easy-to-use apps allow workers to share, access and document important project information while they are on the job site. It is trusted that the future of mobile will be to manage with devices entirely. Producers of building materials are continually looking options to digitize their process of production and distribution. And on the other side, the construction industry is determined to digitize their construction, planning, and logistics.
So now imagine having a mobile app for your daily on-site activities. A mobile app can manage your projects, employees, financials, assets, employee/customer communications, and schedules. You can also keep track of your everything while on-the-go! What’s the best part? It’s handy. When you always go right, your software should go with you too!
