Now more than ever, quick access to data will be critical to contractors as we move towards a post-pandemic world. While unforeseen acts of God or force majeure-type events have made us all hyper-aware of the need to give distributed teams insight into project status and other information, the industry shift towards remote access to a jobsite seems to be a movement that is here to stay.
Looking ahead, the one thing that we can expect as an industry is change and innovation. As with any life-altering event in history, these times will prompt us to adapt to the new normal, calling for new solutions to the challenges we face day-to-day. Teams that are the most flexible and innovative will survive this new era.
What will that look like? Just as the construction industry moved from paper-based documentation to photos taken via mobile devices and stored in the cloud, contractors now must move toward a solution that gives everyone from the owner to the various subcontractors insight into what’s happening on the jobsite—now—in order to keep teams safe and help move work forward efficiently.
We are entering a new age of intelligent reality on the jobsite. With technology like artificial intelligence, construction is now able to advance in ways never before possible. Leveraging this kind of tech will be critical not only for communication, but also for protecting contractors from risk and unforeseen circumstances.
With roots in the construction industry, our founding team is intimately aware of the many challenges that the industry faces. With the recent announcement of our Series A round led by D20 Capital, the team at StructionSite will continue our efforts to help solve some of the pain points our industry faces, both today and for what lies ahead. This funding helps us to continue to drive our purpose, to fuel the intelligent construction revolution. That starts with our dedication to the industry from our company’s foundation and continues to guide us to our future.
In the wake of this pandemic and beyond, StructionSite’s platform is able to give distributed project teams complete, 360-degree access to the jobsite at any time, from any device. With SmartTrack®, StructionSite’s upcoming product, tracking visible scopes of work and the percentage complete becomes an organized, seamless process—saving time, increasing accuracy, and generating the data needed to make the right decisions at the right time.
As the industry begins to prepare for post-pandemic business operations, this data will be critical to contractors to keep their projects on schedule and on budget, and to stay competitive in a changing world.
