To put this in perspective, let’s think about all of the hours that go into filling out timecards, driving around town just to drop off a signed contract, and going through every detail of an invoice and comparing it to materials ordered. For many contractors, this adds up to over 12 hours per week that could be spent doing what you actually got into the business for: working onsite.
We all know that time could be saved by being a little more productive when it comes to construction processes, but let’s put some numbers to it. According to techahead, the average value of paper per employee is $80. What’s even more shocking is that 40% of construction companies are using paper plans on the job. So what happens if there’s a change to the plans? Well in most cases, there will need to be new plans printed, meetings held, and a very clear line of communication.
End of the “Paper Era”
These days, adopting technology like a construction mobile app has become necessary in order for companies to survive. Think about the time and money that could be saved by switching from paper to a digital solution; not to mention the increase in productivity. By implementing construction software, businesses will have more accurate, real-time data which ultimately bridges the communication gap on job sites.
