It was not so long ago that estimations and cost calculations for material and works on the construction site were made manually. Especially when it is a matter of obtaining a partial performance in a project from a construction company, calculations must be coherent so that they can be compared with each other and the suitable company awarded the contract. However, just as the term preliminary costing suggests, such invoices are assumptions that serve only to describe a defect-free and optimal workflow.
Software vendors facilitate and accelerate such processes. Microsoft Excel, for example, is the absolute pioneer when it comes to spreadsheets. Today, however, more and more companies are advertising smartphone applications that transfer the same benefits to your tablet or mobile phone and thus guarantee mobility at work, but also cost and time savings.
We would like to show you as project participants that it takes more than a spreadsheet to implement cost estimates or cost calculations without having to answer for additional costs due to faulty work or defects.
What efforts have we made to optimize communication between project participants in the construction industry, to accelerate processes and to support all planners involved? The trend towards digitization has now slowly arrived, one can say, also in the construction industry. Applications for architects, engineers, specialist planners, facility managers, and project managers are gratefully accepted and are already increasingly contributing to productivity in the construction and planning process.
Have we not, however, overlooked a crucial point at this point? What about the actual manpower? The greatest capital of any company is its employees. PlanRadar has thought about how to not only network leading positions, but also to integrate the other links in the chain. What does it take and what does this bring us in practice?
The construction industry is facing a problem that could not be bigger. The success of a company, especially when it comes to building an object, depends above all on the people who work on it.
Training programs are dime a dozen. Universities are breeding the next generation of managers without covering the actual demand. A growing industry needs not only a leading edge but, most importantly, strong hands and manpower to move businesses forward.
Construction companies need workers, but what if no qualified employees can be found?
We will explain to you:
Achieving success in a construction project depends on several factors such as the size of the project, commitment to the time plan, budget and client’s satisfaction. It is difficult to fulfill all parties’ needs in a complex process like this, but modern technology is putting all its effort to solve this obstacle by offering newly developed construction operating systems. Now many software solutions can track budget, schedule and even remotely monitor the labor workflow on site. The question left is which one of the multitude of software solutions is right for you? Furthermore, how to use it effectively?
