SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY + TABLET GIVEAWAY

Low cost construction technology worth embracing on your job sites. See below for details on our tablet giveaway.

You want to rock your design/build project but you are being pulled in one hundred directions. The adoption of technology is a necessary evil - evil because you don’t necessarily have the time to scope out the options and implement them. There’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, the Internet of Things (IoT), countless mobile apps and now flying cameras. Some are even making those really cool time-lapse videos on their projects sites - the ones you like to watching on your dumbphone...err smartphone...when you are finally winding down for the evening.


But is all of this hype worth considering? Can it help your construction project move faster and be more accurate while putting more money in everyone’s pockets? Do you need to make a big investment in technical resources you don’t have just to fully immerse your business well into the 21st century?


ModSpace named technology and project complexity as two of the top five challenges for general contractors in 2017 and we don’t see that changing for 2018! And, the more complex your construction projects are the more technology is needed to complete them, so it’s a catch 22.  


It’s our job to simplify the process for you, so here are a few simple steps you can take in order to figure out what to embrace and what to ditch when it comes to everyday construction-based technology.

  1. Look at your business and its three key areas - sales technology, on-site project management and business organization - and assess where most of your time is spent. Which tasks keep you or your team away from the job site? Which areas of the job site could stand to be streamlined?
  2. Admit the spreadsheet from 1998 is no longer cutting it and that not only does there have to be a better way, but that better way already exists. Every day you go without using construction management software is another day lost to potential time and financial savings.
  3. Seek out high-tech products and apps specifically designed for construction professionals and aimed at your vulnerable areas. Below are some free or low-cost examples to get you started. BONUS: High tech doesn’t always mean high priced!

  • Tablets are a useful tool, allowing everything from a hands-on showcase of your sales portfolio to managing your job-related apps. See below on how to win a free tablet!
  • To stay organized, utilize loyalty programs such as Home Depot’s Pro Xtra. Keep your credit card on file, automatically store receipts, earn rewards and volume discounts. BONUS: Text2Confirm allows you to send runners to the store with your credit card that trigger a text to your phone at the point of sale. Your text response authorizes the purchase.
  • To manage your tools, DeWalt’s Tool Connect helps you track and connect your tools across job sites while monitoring battery levels and deterring theft.
  • Find and attend 2018 tech-related conferences, such as AGC’s IT Forum and the NAHB International Builders’ Show.

We like to keep it simple, but if you want the full list of current and upcoming technology big and small, check out JBKnowledge’s 5th Annual Construction Technology Report (and look out for the 2017 version, coming soon).
